Bicycling for Health and Beauty

Image from here:

I'm feeling much better these days. Went back to the doctor on Thursday and no Lyme disease but another two weeks of antibiotics. I talked to my partner from Shop Teacher Bob's Big Adventure and he's been sick as well. Must have been something in the water. Regardless, even being sick for a couple of weeks was still a pretty good trade-off for the trip.

I've started working out a little - some bag work at the gym, a little biking and a short walk/jog yesterday. I got the info about the Bass Lake bike race in the mail a couple of days ago. It's the 25th and there's a 2 mile race walk the following weekend. I've been pretty successful at both of these events in the past, so I'd like to be able to compete in both of them again. Not much time to train for the bike race but I think I'll sign up. As long as I continue to feel better and the weather cooperates, I should be able to have a little fun without embarrassing myself. I need to play catch-up on the marathon training and doing some half way serious cross training wouldn't hurt.

It's time to get serious about getting some work done around the shack as well. I'm going to try and get up early, get my exercise in, and then put in a few hours working on projects everyday. Might be something worth reading about here that way plus I'll have something to show for my time when school starts.

leroy99: It's $12.00 if you sign up before the 19th, $15.00 after. Let me know if you're in for sure and I'll start riding. Let me know if you need a sign-up sheet.

Unk: Thanks. I don't deal well with any type of extended illness, especially when the weather was so nice. Probably should just count my blessings it wasn't any worse. Lot of people suffering out there as you well know.
