May mileage is improved. I’m driving less and riding more. I wasn’t tracking mileage by month last year, but May 2009 could be the most miles in a month for me.
It turns out I have arthritis in my right shoulder. I probably injured it years ago, and just don’t remember it. Most of the medication I have been given for it didn’t do much, and had side effects, so I’m no longer taking medication for it. I have been doing strength training for my upper body with a personal trainer. This has been helping my shoulder, and is good for the general fitness also.
Kristy is still too far away. I’ve been focusing on bikes, cooking, and diet to keep the loneliness away.
I’ve been recruiting some co-workers to go on a bike ride during lunch. Several people keep a bike at work, and we ride along the riverwalk during lunch. We ride slow, and it’s not a long ride, but it helps break the day up and clear the mind.
