I rode my bike to Waterford Lakes to pick up my glasses today. I can definitely feel that I am more fit now, because I remember having a horrible time the last time that I rode 2 miles to work, but this was not too bad. The roundtrip was a total of 8.7 mile, and although it wasn't a piece of cake, it was totally doable.
Again, controlling my breathing goes a long way, drinking plenty of water, and wearing the right clothing for the weather. One nice side effect of all this outdoors exercising is that I am looking Puertorrican again :) I should probably wear some sunscreen.
I am really going to try to bike to work at least 3-4 times a week. It will give me regular exercise and I am sick of throwing all that money away on gas. Here is hoping this bike ride burnt enough calories to show a loss tomorrow--though I suspect that slice of pizza I just had negated it :( But it's all good, it's all muscle I tell ya ;)
