Out on the bike. Man, what a difference adjusting the seat and pumping the tires makes. 5.13 miles, and feeling good. Incidentally, the bike I have access to is actually a trike, which is weird to ride until you get the hang on it. You'd think it was easier, and in some ways, it is. On the other hand, cornering is bizarre; you can't lean into it, etc.

Did a little more gardening, as well. Jessica and Miss Kathryn got two large petunia pots Sunday, and they really were overgrowing their pots. I transplanted them to the front flower beds, and they should do just fine. Dug up that stump of pipe from the backyard, as well. It used to be the base for a clothes-drying rack, but that rack is long gone, and I was tired of mowing around it. Now, no issue!

friend of mine in oregon, her husband builds trikes for a living. they're really cool. :)

Just remember that when you pedal, your leg should exactly extend like a walking step: no knee still bent, but no forced extension either. That's the ergonomic perfect height.

Very true. That's a downside to being 6'3": if I get the seat high enough for the proper leg extension, I have to hunch over to get to the handlebars. I've found a position that's pretty damn close, though, without the back pain, and I make sure to stop and stretch as i go.
