Churning the midnight oil

Time to get in shape. Seriously. I just turned the odometer another digit. Sadly, a number of my friends recently all suffered hardship with their health. Some were diagnosed with cancer, another friend got a heart-attack before his fifties. And today, I sadly got the news that a former colleague a handful years older than me, passed away.

Since reading "Renner willen worden" by Karl Vannieuwkerke last summer, about becoming a semi-professional cyclist at an age when most cyclists start to slow down, I've been working on my eat, sleep and workout habits.

This week, I found a great deal on a magnetic bicycle trainer on Craigslist. My neighbors can now see me early mornings or late at night churning away, while watching a catchy movie or series on my laptop.
