Nice ride for a hot and windy day!


 Today I broke my 10 miles which took me three rides. I have just not rode enough to keep the momentum going. I will continue working on it. I am desperate to get back into shape.

Short Local ride. lots of back pain!


Today was a short ride just to keep in shape.  I wanted to go longer but my back is killing me and I am scheduled for a pain shot tomorrow morning.  Hopefully I will get back into shape soon.

Great day for a leisure ride.

Starting to settle in to the new home, and getting my way around the local streets. Today's ride was a little over 6 miles, but I am not going to push myself until I am back in shape.

First ride of the season

Today I rode for the first time in a very long time. I am now in my new home and have not figured out the safest route yet, but I am working on it.  The roads are in bad shape no matter where you are on the East Coast so I can't complain.  I rode a short 6.1 miles and this ride was just to check out the trike. Had no problems other than my first leg cramp. I expected I was out of shape and I sure am. I think Garmin Connect is down as I am unable to get to my Dashboard to post the ride.. I guess I will update once Garmin fixes their problems, and gets their act together.

It has been a long time since I posted

It has been a very long time since I have posted do to many reasons, mostly do to medication problems. Then we decided to put the house up for sale and move to a retirement community in Monroe Township, NJ.  Well the moving took up most of the hours of the day as we had to get the house ready for sale. Cleaning out years of junk and doing minor repairs. Then it came time to put the house up and that meant not having a riding schedule as the broker was calling to arrange for people to come and see the house.   We were told we would sell the house in a few weeks, at a price we felt was good, but weeks turned into months and we dropped the price of the house. A few weeks later a nice couple with two children gave us an offer and it was our asking price so we accepted.  Now the inspection came and a few items needed to be fixed. We rushed to find a home which we did but the owners were renting it so we had to give them time to move out, they wanted 6 months, but we told them two or no deal. They accepted and we are in the house three months. Now a lot of time is spent fixing things to our liking and some minor changes. I am hoping everything will be done in a few months so riding will begin.

Why I haven't posted!

In the early spring I put my home up for sale and started looking for a new place to live. It has been nothing but a nightmare. After one deal feel through to buy a home we finally found one we liked, but not as much as the first. Now we have the problem of selling our home, and that has turned into many sleepless nights and lots of anxiety. People want everything to be new when the house is 40 years old. They want it for a bargain price and they want a mini mansion for the price of a normal home. I am a total wreck, and have had no desire to ride yet alone do anything. I have done many stressful things in my life, but selling a home is the worst! If it doesn't sell soon, we will come up with an alternate plan, but I sure as hell am not going to give in to these bargain hunters. HGTV, Trulla and the company they merged with cause more problems as their pricing is usually a huge amount or more off. I hope this is resolved soon as I am at my wits end.

Conditions are improving, so ride today was more enjoyable.

My ride seemed easier and had only a short duration left leg cramp. I rode through it and I am now as good as new. I hope this is the end of the bad rides and I am looking forward to easier rides.
