I thought I would let you know that I am having my most happiest week of the year! I've been improving in cycling up hills and I no longer feel the pain when I first started! Moreover, I had such an experience today starting my cycling at 4:40 a.m today (or 4:50). I loved feeling the coolness in my face as I departed for the bikepath on a 800 foot downward sloping road. I'm planning on another early morning bike ride on Independence Day where I plan to break my personal record and go more than 36+ miles! I've surprised myself. I'm confident I'll break it; the southwestern portion of the bike trail is mostly flat. I've mostly been cycling in the evening so I don't go very far as my mother gets worried about me being out late. But this July 4th I will see just what my body is capable of! Perhaps I'll go up the steep hills in my neighborhood three times! Lol, that is too much... One is enough. I'm excited! Perhaps next year I would be in excellent shape to enter myself in a competition! I'm excited!
