Briefly. . .

Today, the temperature is hovering right around freezing, and there's a wet mix of snow and rain intermittently falling from the sky.  Besides which, I don't feel very well (too much rich holiday food; or maybe a really mild flu).  So, I won't be out on my bike today, the first weekend since February that I haven't been.

I took a vacation day this past Tuesday, to get some medical tests done, and it turned out to be such a nice day that I went out for 24 miles in the afternoon, bringing my total for the year to 1821 miles.  I sure didn't see that coming.

There are still a couple weeks left in Calendar Year 2012, so that number could possibly crawl a bit higher.  But even if not, my legs, to say nothing of my heart and lungs (or my butt), can be happy with a job well done for this year. . .


  1. I'd say, no matter what is left in 2012, you've done an amazing amount of travelling.

    Hope the flu (or whatever it is) passes fast!

  2. Good job! Any more global warming and your mileage will match the year.

  3. You'd have more miles on yer bike than I'd have on my car if it weren't for all those trips to Albuquerque I've been making of late.

    Good work!

  4. Sailor - Thanks; not too bad for a fat, old guy. . .

    I'm feeling better already, but still kinda wrung-out. . .

    Bijoux - I was wondering how long before I got my first Global Warming comment. . .


    Buck - That puts an interesting spin on it. . . Just don't forget to take that left toin at Alba-koiky. . .

  5. Wonderful accomplishment for the year! Hope you feel better soon!

  9. What Lime said.

    Impressive!!! Definitely a "hobby" that will do your body well. Keep it up! I am inspired to be as dedicated to fitness on such a regular basis as you. :)

  10. Flutter - I'm hopin' so. . .

    An' gosh, a Derby-girl like you, impressed by my dedication to fitness? I'm impressed by yours!

  11. And, back @Bijoux, again. . .

    If I can find nine more miles before the end of the year, I'll have averaged five miles per day for the entire year. . .
