I wonder if I'm cut out for hard physical labor. I'm just not used to it. I know I'll get used to it. I'm just not sure I can get over that "hump" to be able to get used to it.
Wow, it was tough. I mean, when those 2 ladies got in my cab last night (and they weren't anywhere near overweight; they were both very nicely-figured) and I tried to pedal away, it was like I couldn't move. It took me a few seconds to get going. I was propelling almost 600 pounds with my legs alone. I got going, and it's much easier once you have some momentum, but it's not easy. Today, I'm sore as hell.
As I've said before, I'm predominantly a brain, just housed in a body. I've increased my physical fitness an incredible amount in the past few months by bicycling, stretching, and performing bits of Chi Kung. I'm trying to become more attuned to my body, something I've neglected in the past. But I'm much better at jobs where I think, write, type - this is the first "physical" job I've ever had. And pedicabbing is overwhelming in its sheer magnitude.
I guess I'm wondering if I bit off more than I can chew.
