Where The Bike Takes Me

Continuing this journey of cycling in efforts to get into shape, lose weight, enjoy the outdoors, and save my knees from their arthritic state at 28 years of age.

Holy Allergies, Batman! April 28, 2007

This past Wednesday I was side-swiped by a really bad case of seasonal allergies.  I take Allegra 180 to keep my eczema at bay but it doesn’t seem to prevent me from getting really bad rhinitis.   Wednesday it started off as slight throat irritation and slowly progressed into sneezing, congestion, a constant runny nose, and finally yesterday into coughing fits.  We went out to eat last night and I could barely taste anything.  It sucked!

Today I went to a Confident City Cycling class which is free from WABA and the Virginia Bicycling Federation.  It was 3 hours and I thought it was too short!  It flew by!  There’s just so much to learn about cycling in general.  I’ve been doing a ton of reading, mostly books from the local library and I still feel there’s so much more to know.  I really liked it though and learned a lot especially about laws pertaining to cyclists, etc.

I did a 30-minute indoor ride on the neighborhood recumbent, stationery bike.  Still getting a feel with the ‘new’ cycling shoes.  I’m working on a steady cadence of around 90 RPM and working up quite a sweat.  Tomorrow is suppose to be beautiful and I am going to ride!
