Oh my aching butt!

Got my bike tuned up and on the road yesterday. I've cycled a total of about 4 miles since then (not much, really, I use my bike as my main form of transportation.) I'm so happy to be back on my bike, and doing some really vigorous exercise every day, but man, I really hate the transition period that my butt goes through every spring.

O and I are aiming to ride out to Folk Fest this year, a 22 mile ride, with camping equipment. We have a little under 4 months to get ready for this. I'm aiming at a minimum of 2-3 miles every day, and doing a medium length ride (5-6 miles) and a long ride (8-10 miles) once a week, or at least twice a month, to build up stamina.

Every time I think I'm getting somewhere...

Everyone at my office is sick, I mean really, really sick. My boss had pneumonia last week, the GM, AGM, head chef and most of the sous-chefs had bronchitis. I'm valiantly fighting off illness with all the herbs I'm taking, so I should probably be thankful. I'm not brutally sick, not on the couch hacking my lungs out sick.

But I'm just kind of slow, drag out, crappy, kind of sick. I'm waking up feeling crappy, stuffed up, not happy. I have no energy to exercise and a constant low fever.

Oh well, onwards and upwards and all that crap!
