Great ride today

I again, rode with Fred and we rode for 18.5 miles at a little faster pace of about 13 mph (Fred set the pace). That is a little faster than my normal pace of 10 or 11 mph so I had to push a little harder to keep up. Of course I will not be able to do this every day but I think I can do it now and then. There was a little wind today and I may have not rode if I had not of had someone to ride with, great to have another rider around. I really like riding with someone who is a stronger rider than I, it gives me something to strive for. A great ride.

I hope my knees don’t do bad with the extra effort on the bike. All other aches and pains are secondary to the knees, those knees I keep an eye on. Maybe I can just ride every other day. We’ll see.

I’ll add a little stretching  here after a while and it will be a good day of fitness for me. About 2:30 p.m.  stretching added.

I can’t believe that it is already Sunday, the time just flies by, it seems. It has been a cloudy week and it is cloudy today for the most part, but the temperature is fine, just over 70° out now, perfect.

Playing with the Nexus 7 again and speech recognition, while sitting outside enjoying the beautiful weather. It is very handy to blog with the Nexus 7 on these cloudy days, it is a very power saving device compared to the laptop. I am getting more used to it and may start using it even more for my blogging. Is also very handy when I just want to add 1 or 2 lines to the blog. I can just pick it up and start speaking after only a couple of clicks.

One of the women staying here in the area feeds the birds so one of the trees nearby my RV is full of house finches, they are singing their hearts out. I enjoy listening to them. House finches seemed to always have something to say. 🙂 they just love chirping away.

OK enough for today, Later.

  1. Bird song is such a grand harbinger of Spring. Here, the male curve bill thrasher has been serenading his female ‘friend’ as she sits nearby, doubtless impressed with his beautiful voice.


    1. Yes, the Curve Bill Thrasher just love the Yucca seeds around the ranch. I remember the first year I stayed at the ranch, their whistle always made me think someone was trying to get my attention, LOL. They have the nice orange eyes too. Neat bird. I think I will make one of my pictures from the ranch of Curve Bill Thrasher the bird of the week on the blog.
