A couple of weeks ago, I had a complete copper re-pipe. I watched the guy carrying out the rusted steel pipes & I envied him because when I was young, I did work like that - loading & unloading trucks, heavy lifting, helping friends move, etc.

He got a good laugh when I told him, "Enjoy your youth; I used to do work like that when I was your age...now it means a trip to the ER."

I walked about 12 miles today, and it was a hard slog at times.

Went lawnmower shopping Saturday morning. The old one, a 2008 zero turn, is acting like it did when a valve stuck and broke a push rod. Picked out the new one and it will be delivered Tuesday. Got home and checked the weather forecast, looked like rain would be arriving about 5 PM, so took off on a bike ride. Got 10 miles from the house and got into a rain shower. Fortunately I was at a church that had a big pavilion I got under just in time to keep dry. I decided I better head back toward home when the rain shower stopped. Riding back across the river bottoms, the wind was gusty and you could feel the temperature drop. There was a time on a long straight stretch that I swore the wind blew from every direction. Bad head wind, the cross wind from the left, then cross wind from the right, and even a brief but nice tail wind. The sky was getting darker and about 5 miles from the house, the bottom fell out. I thought about stopping at a small country store about a mile up the road and get under their overhang at the gas pumps. It wasn't letting up and a person can get only so wet. Since I was already soaked, I went ahead and rode home without stopping, just like the rain. Ride was 20.9 miles.

Dedication would be to start a ride under those conditions. That ride was survival mode after the fact.

Busy day at work today. 14,137 steps and 63 floors. Glad tomorrow is my Friday.

Yesterday was a very lazy day, today not so. Went on a bike ride with the group I joined. Took off at 6 AM and rode 32.4 miles. This afternoon I gave the dog a haircut (think shearing sheep).

It's so freaking hot here in Florida, I can't even stand to go and collect the mail. I need to walk on my treadmill, but that's so boring!!

A 44.6 mile bike ride on beautiful but breezy Memorial Day. I called it Hills and Headwinds at High Noon. It's almost the season to get out and ride before mid-day.

BG before ride 83 mg/dL, after ride and a shower it was 90.
