Won’t be riding in le-tour anytime soon

I got back on my bike for the first time in over a year last night.  I spent about 25 minutes on the trainer, and then decided that I needed to get out of the house.  So I went out and did 8 miles.  Nowhere near my usual evening ride, but the total time on the bike – 55 minutes.  Felt oh so good.  It wasn’t a difficult route, no major hills/climbing, and the speed wasn’t where I remember it being, but what do you expect?  The handling was off, and I forgot just how difficult it is to pace yourself on the road and judge your effort.  If rain wasn’t in the forecast for the next couple of days, I’d probably be back on the road, without hitting the trainer. 

My last grade got posted last night.  B+  I can’t complain, considering I missed turning in a couple of case assignments, and figured that I’d be lucky if I got an A.  At least my GPA stays above a 3.0, which is all I needed.  I’m sitting down with my Independent Study coordinator on Monday to get that setup.  So it’s just a matter of waiting for the rest of things to get underway.  Financial Aid is set now.  I just need to figure out if I’m set for December graduation or not. 

After a couple of days of tracking my food intake – I just have to say wow.  It’s no wonder I was feeling tired and run down for awhile.  So much garbage.  At least my calorie intake was good, but the nutrients I need… weren’t there.  We’ll see how this keeps up. 

Anyways, that’s it for the moment.
