“Outta Shape Boy” Prepares for “Standard Commute to Work”

Having been contracting out of town for the last couple of years, I've been a cycling slacker. I think "couch potato" is a more accurate term. That being said, today was my fifth day commuting to work this Colorado summer. Because I'm so out of shape (translates: slow), it's easy to be distracted by the sunny, 68 degree morning with a cool breeze running beside the Platte River. And with 90+% of my commute on dedicated bike path and trails, I don't have to concern myself with automobile traffic very much.

I missed my biking buddy today, even though he normally makes good on his attempt to "rip my legs off." Perhaps tomorrow. And as my body gets reacquainted with the prospect of cycling, my breathing is getting more efficient, my knees are waking up and, hopefully soon, I'll be ready for my "standard commute to work."
