|Me Mountain Biking|
But before the pie, Bob and I will go biking. He got me into a daily ride, and we're now biking up and down the hills near Snow Canyon--about ten miles every morning. When I first started at the beginning of the summer, I could make it about halfway, and I would get really winded going up the steep hills. But now I'm keeping up and using higher gears to go up those same hills with a few deep breaths.
It really surprised me that it didn't take all that long to build my strength, after all, I'm old. I do have more energy, and the body looks a bit more toned. The really nice part? We live in St. George, Utah and can do this all year round. Today is not the last hurrah of summer here. It is the end of the 107+ degree days. Hello 90 degrees, and cooler mornings :-)
Happy Labor Day friends! Write on.
