Have you ever notice how land that seems flat when you drive on it is visibly inclined when your riding a bike? Have you ever ridden a bike up such an incline with two small children in tow?
I was getting pretty good at it until it rained for a week. Now I have to build myself back up. Today we rode to the school together and by the time I got home I was nearing charlie horse stages in my rear end.
Ugh. I am so out of shape it's embarrassing.
Ralexwin and I are beginning the aging process and the only thing positive I can think about it is that at least I have someone to decline with.
I remember my mom once telling me that her 30's were the prime of her life. She never felt more beautiful, more in shape, more happy than in those years. As a consequence I've waited all my life for my thirties so that I could feel the same things. Now I'm starting to wonder if I missed my prime by waiting for it to come!
I need to work on my body so that I can have the prime I've been waiting for. Riding my bike seemed like a good place to start.
But while I was on my bike all I could think about was the Diet Coke's sitting on the counter at home. I resisted, though, and when I did get home I drank water instead.
Points for me!
Now I'm off to find the wrench so I can turn the broken shower faucet on and wash off all this sweat.
Tomorrow I'll try again. Maybe I'll even try again this afternoon. Whichever way, I'm determined to be able to ride to and from that school without going into cardiac arrest in my driveway.
