5:08 pm - One Last Ride  
The knee felt a bit better, so I put on a brace and finished putting up the shelf supports down in the basement. Then I looked outside and saw it was sunny (it poured last night and into the morning), so I decided to hit the bike path for the final ride of the year. It was almost 3 o'clock when I got there. With the late start, it wasn't going to be a very long ride anyway, but I was surprised at how little vim I had. The knee didn't bother me at all (except that the brace pinched), but I ran out of gas long before I finished one lap. Of course, I haven't been on the stationary bike in a couple of weeks, and I've been stuffing myself with junk, so I guess that shouldn't be a surprise.
