I got outside on the bike for the first time in 2009 today; the ride was okay — it was 30s and not windy which feels pretty comfortable — but my God am I out of shape.  That’s what a few weeks off does to me, I suppose.  My legs felt okay, but my HR was so high I don’t want to give the number.  Too embarrassing.

Tonight I have my first swimming lesson with a new group, and I’m nervous and excited about it.  It would be nice if I weren’t the slowest, most awkward swimmer there …

And my doctor says I can try running again this week.  Only 10 minutes at a time, but it’s a start.  I’m supposed to stop immediately if it hurts, though, and I’m worried that it might.

    Thanks Sarah! The swim class was fun, as you’ll see from my latest post. I’m going to try running tomorrow.
