So today I biked about 9 miles down to the Bay and back (with the "back" part being mostly uphill), and I am tremendously proud of myself.
After a couple months of injuries and about 4 months of off-and-on bronchitis that kept me pretty much confined to walking as my only mode of exercise, I've been feeling extremely out of shape and pretty rotten about it. But today I did a somewhat hilly 9-mile bike ride, and I did not collapse, vomit, or require professional medical assistance. I consider it a triumph!
Hurray for me!
