THIS BLOG is to record my attempts to get back in shape -- and to reflect on what I learned from my training last year. I'm making it public just for those who want to know how one octagenarian grapples with aging.
I BEGAN IT LAST YEAR to keep track of my training for an 80-mile ride on my 80th birthday, September 28. That ride behind me, I stopped riding. By March, I was thoroughly out of shape. Will I regain the vitality I had last September. Come along and see!

No exertion, today. Quads still feel stiff from Wednesday, but energy was good. When I woke up I felt like I wasn't completely rested, so I tried to nap just before lunch, but couldn't go under. Now, getting ready for tonight's concert, I feel okay.
