4.5 miles on two wheels

So I finally bought a decent bike and got in 4.5 miles this morning. Not much, but it was the first time in at least five years that I've gone more than a few miles on a bike. Boy do I have a lot to relearn. Of course I didn't forget how to ride -- who does once you learn -- but the whole shifting gears thing and getting my butt used to the bumps will take some adjusting. Either way, I'm happy to get an aerobic workout in. My foot is still bothering me slightly, so I haven't done any running since the race.

Anyway, I'll have more details soon about my bike and the experiences I'll get on it this week ...
