Cycling again, with a bit of a vengence

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.
