Ride On!

For those of you who read this blog regularly, you know that every now and again I touch on my exercise or lack there of! So I thought I would blog about something I'm very excited about:

Yesterday, as I scarfed Chinese food, I suddenly became depressed. The food was great, but my guilty conscience was just to much for me to handle. That afternoon I decided Ella and I would go on a walk when we got home, and that we did. It was a nice casual walk along the Manchester Green Way. On my walk, still feeling guilty about the Chinese food, I was thinking to myself

"What can I do, at work, to get some kind of work out? I could walk, tried it...bored to tears. I could run, tried it...too much effort. Hmmm...maybe I can ride my bike?"

So after we returned home from our walk I decided to pull out the VERY dusty bike rack Richard had given to me.
I cleaned it up and began investigating how to hook it to my car. Once it was all hooked up I grabbed my bike, flat tires and all, to see how it would sit. Pretty darn cool if you ask me!

So Thursday at around 11am, I head out.

Wait...back up, First I sent my friend Holly an email asking her for the Rules of the Road. Then I headed out. Scared to death!!! I made my way around the out part of the University then over by the Hospital and back to my office.

Total Miles: 6.04 estimate

And let me tell you, I feel GREAT! I think I am really going to enjoy this...

Still Smiling...
