Pedaling for fitness

Following retirement 15 years ago, I created an exercise plan to keep me healthy until age 85 if possible.

First, I had cataracts removed in both eyes. Now I can read the newspaper without glasses!

Next I bought an exercise bike. My plan lets me exercise one half-hour daily with variations for weather. I bike for 15 minutes. In bad weather I bike for 30 minutes.

Now I’m 85 years old but can walk as easily as when only 70, so I’ll continue.

More power to you, Roy! I told my doctor once that I feel like George Armstrong Custer at the battle of Little Big Horn. I know I am going to die, but I will go down fighting all the way.
