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!

Mini-ride of 3.4 miles
Just feeling a little lazy today, so we decided not to walk to Winco. After lunch, rode over to library and back, just to oil up the knee joints. Left me a little stiff later on but not crippled.
