I’m out of shape. Jesse got me a bicycle for Christmas that we picked up today. I finally got it all set up and took it out for a spin. Wow. After just a mile and a half, I was really starting to feel it. My commute to work (the reason for the new bike) is about 3.5 miles (mostly down hill). I imagine that I’m going to be pretty out of breath for the first week or so. It’s been a while since I’ve been regularly running, so my cardiovascular is probably pretty weak.
Over the last couple days I put together a little weather gadget for my home page. It queries a National Weather Service server for the forecast for my area and then prints out a brief summary of relevant information for my commute. Hopefully it’ll help me stay comfortable and safe.
