Big Hill with Bill

Did the ‘core’ exercises yesterday for the second time. Already see a little improvement. Dan says I’m still wobbly but he didn’t see the first time I tried. Believe me, it was definitely better but there is still a long way to go.

Today I met Bill in Sonora and we rode over to Columbia and then started climbing Big Hill (appropriately named). Neither of us had a device to tell us how much climbing we did but based on the average of 100’ for every mile, which seems to hold true for our area, we did 3,000’ of climbing. 30 miles in 2 ½ hours with an average of 11.3 – I was impressed with an average of over 10 based on how I felt. Did me good to have someone to ‘chase’ up the hill since I worked harder than I would have had I been alone.

Before we left Columbia, I got this photo. Just before I took it, the street was TOTALLY deserted. Of course, by the time I got the camera ready, some folks walked in and ruined it.  I cannot figure out how to flip the picture so it isn’t on its side.  Sorry about that…just tip your head to the right.

Columbia-almost completely deserted

Our weather has been absolutely beautiful this week. The forecast is for it to continue at least through the weekend. Woohoo!



female, married, in love, beautiful grown daughters, great and large extended family spread all over the US, enjoying my life, my favorite place to be is outside (unless its cold and wet).
