    The main thing is to take it easy when you get back in the sa**dle. Give your body a chance to get used to it and work yourself up gradually to the rides you used to do. Your body will let you know when it gets overextended or when you can kick it up a notch.

    Engineering, eh? You'll fit right in!

    For a less orgasmic, but more comfortable ride, don't have the saddle pointing up.

    Ride lots. Rest properly. The human body thrives on activity. You'll know when enough is enough - certainly more so than anyone posting from across ocean.

    I'm reminded of that old saying: Last year I couldn't even spell injuneer. Now I are one.

    Amir, don't worry. Everybody is just joking with you. Good spellers are not found on this forum. The native English speakers are probably the worst of the bunch.

    I speak a couple of languages and am always embarrassed when I find a mistake I have been making for years or when I find that my usage of some colloqualism (that has to be a misspell!) has been totally wrong.

    Welcome to the forums. Write and mispell with reckless abandon. Your ideas and comments are welcome here.

    The most knowledgable advise was "you'll know when to rest" And do it. Unless you have a specific goal to ride a century in some month just keep increasing.

    In the mean time what can you do at the local gym? There maybe a way to get a head start and to not need one next year.

    BTW you just finished the hardest year good going.

    I never did have much respect for some one that could only think of one way to spell a word-

    "Andrew Jackson, no?"
    I don't know who originated it.

    Andrew Jackson, no?
    Mark Twain:
    "I don't give a damn for a man that can only spell a word one way."

    I believe that is the origin of this qoute,
    however I've also heard it paraphrased as:
    "Its a narrow mind that can only spell a word one way"

    [to draw the subject out further]

    The quote I read was "It's a mighty poor mind that can only think of one way to spell a word." Actually, I thought it was Thomas Jefferson that said it, but this site indicated otherwise.

    That said, the Mark Twain quote sounds closer to what Joe said.

    Either way, it's a neat quote.

    Now, what were we talking about again?

    Don't despair! The trend in recent years has been "if enough people get it wrong, we'll just change the dictionary." While I admit that language is a living thing, it should not simply give up without a fight and cater to the brain dead.

    Can you tell that this is a pet peeve?

    Cheers...Gary
