Took my bike to the shop for a tune up, new tubes, new bar tape. Then
got back on and rode around for the first time since smashing my wrist
into little bits two years ago, just before GUADEC Copenhagen.

Exercising again after long periods of sitting on one’s ass is
painful. I always get air whistling through my ears somehow, burning
lungs, and a strong urge to vomit. My memory is that this goes away
after a few days of regular exercise, but I haven’t tested that in
several years, given that the wrist smashing episode also came at the
end of a long sedentary period.

I’m off on a nine-day trip (OSCON, LinuxWorld) in a couple days, so I
can’t really get started on the regular exercise until I get
back. We’ll see how that goes.
