Not a bad day

I worked today, got home, drove a few miles up the road to an overlook and shared a beautiful sunset with someone special far away. It made me happy, and the smile just keeps going...

Then I got home, and decided to go and ride my bike in the basement. Well, I got my heart rate up to 197 bpm. My max at my age should be 186. Pretty impressive. I won't bore you with scientific stuff, just know that most people can't get withing a few beats of their max before passing out, I was able to spike it for about 5 seconds, at which time I wished I passed out. First race is March 5th, second race is March 5th, third race is March 5th. I'm not sure how I'll do, but I hope to be able to at least be competitive. We'll see.

Ok, so life is good. I never thought I'd be where I am now in many ways, but it's all working out and I couldn't be happier. 'Night.

Is it safe to be doing that? I mean, it's impresive and all but damn.. what if something happens to you? I'm sure people would be upset. I'm sure you will do well at your races. You seem to be good like that =)

BTW, it's about time you started riding again. It seems you've been slacking off this week.

Glad your feeling better.

Hmmm, lostintx, and how would you know that I've been slacking off this week...? Yup, it's safe to do that, don't worry about me, I know what I'm doing...

Lora, thanks, yes, I'm getting back up to speed.
