Getting Fit

Harmony I’m a day late for the photography 101 posting so I decided to create Home and Harmony.  The crocus are in full bloom making a nice contrast to my house.

I don’t really care about my average speed, but it is a good indication of improving fitness.  Today was the last warm day for a while and I decided to get one more comfortable long ride under my belt.  Tomorrow is movie day, so I doubt if I will get much of a ride in.  Could happen, but probably not. I didn’t stop much on this 27 mile ride.  I lost two miles on my Garmin trying to figure out again how this Touring one works.

I lost my Edge 200 which is nothing more than an expensive speed o meter.  I do like it for long rides though.  The Touring Garmin I own was used when I downloaded a gps route with turn by turn directions.   The Edge will show up.  I’m guessing when I clean the work bench in my bike shop which was nothing more than a junk draw all summer.
