This is not a New Years Resolution but more an attempt at  a more active recovery from my recent bout of Pancreatitis... The realization that my competitive Tennis might be behind me after the poor and yet baffling performance in the Team Tennis here in Billings.  I prided myself in my ability to "Play with the Big Dogs" even though I wasn't winning I was at least asked to play. Anything you do well is very enjoyable. As oneof the best older players in the area the embarrassing showing in the Team Mixed Tennis gave me concern that I would not be asked to play again.  Shortly after the match I ended up in the Hospital for 5 days with the Pancreatitis.  I now wonder if the poor showing was related to not feeling well.  I was aware that I was not "seeing the ball" very well and I felt very sluggish...  who knows if the two were related... at any rate... water under a bridge.

I have an Eliptical that I got from my Doubles Partner... well truth be told she's EVERYONES partner  ;)

The problem with indoor training is boredom... and my use of the Eliptical was spotted at best... Seems that I would use it only when my shoulder were bothering be... it does help loosen stuff.

I may have solved that motivation problem with this new ProForm... my goal is 00:45 minutes a day (per Dr.) on the new ProForm 440 ES Recumbent bicycle... It seems very accurate as my ride matched the Google map generated estimate.

I am also going to build my Myata Road Bike to something more than it's current  mechanical shape wise. Looking forward to summer... it snowing here
