I’ve been working on my health for a while focusing on diet and exercise. The Achilles tear this spring put a big damper on it, but I started swimming and cycling again recently and so far have been going at it like mad. Last week I got to the pool twice and last weekend I managed three rides totaling 45 miles. As of Sunday, I’d pulled 80 plus miles in 8 days.
Took yesterday and today off. I’d planned to go to the gym and get a swim in tonight, but I only got 5 hours sleep last night so I bagged. I probably should have gone anyway. It’s been really good to get back in the saddle and back in the water. I’m really looking forward to making this a lasting effort.
On a side note, every time I get ready to go for a ride Mr. Grey looks up at me and gets a wild look in his eye, then he starts yelling ‘bikide, bikide” (bike ride, bike ride). Its pretty cool.
