Positively exhilarating

As noted in my last post, I am riding my bicycle to work. I haven't been able to do that for years, both because it was too far to work and because my shoulder wouldn't support me. I had about reached the point of thinking, never again, the age bug had got me. Nope. It amounts to 15 to 20 minutes of cardio workout twice a day, and I feel great! Plus my legs are coming back. I'm feeling a little sore, but hey, that'll go away. Maybe. I feel better than I hurt though. So who really cares? I never thought I could, until I did. Makes a guy feel young again. I've never really gotten a lot of biking in except when using it for basic transportation. That's what gets me in shape for long tours. I feel good! Might take a long ride this weekend. I kinda smile a lot, just knowing that I can still push the bike around. Motorcycles are for wimps who can't peddle their own butt around.
We are on summer schedule in the tech department so I am working eight nines 'till August. 9 hour days 4 days a week, but every other week is Friday off, starting this week. I should get a little something done tomorrow. Maybe hit a bucket at the driving range again. I just feel better....
