I had a great ride today, weather had warmed up and though it had rained all morning it cleared up. I decided to do this ride as we were having an extra yummy fat man delight of sweet corn cakes for dinner! So I went out for a ride before dinner started and did 2 miles and actually did 8min miles(been doing 7 lately). Was a nice ride, very relaxing and felt ready take on such a tasty dinner, proud in the fact that I knew I would not over eat tonight! After I exercise, I don’t want to eat as much because it seems counterproductive…
Was what I thought I was about to hear tonight, as I went out for a SECOND ride at NIGHT!!! I was talking to some folks about biking tonight, passing on some stuff I have learned and just made me ITCH to ride. So I said I would be right back and went out!
The feeling was errie but fun, I was followed by a cop, because I am sure I looked a little wierd a big fat man riding a bicycle late at night but he left me alone. My knee held up fine which was also nice, and I did about an 8 mph avg…did my park loop of 2 miles. I really enjoyed it and hope to maybe go out for a few more night time rides!
So today was fun, it was rainy and cold! My niece came over around lunch time so we all went to pizza hut. I should NOT have gone but I did, I had 4 pieces of pizza(2 of them dessert ones) and a tasty salad! You may be saying BBB, this has NOTHING TO DO WITH BIKING but it does! After lunch we went to the park to play, I made my niece take a short .6 mile walk with me…and I even ran a bit of it!!! When we got home I still felt bloated and lazy, so I diecided to go biking, I even wore my new shoes. MY KNEES HURT LIKE HELL! I think the shoes were to tight AND just not use to the way these work. I did about 2 miles in 14 so not my best, but I think next time I will still use my old shoes. On the plus side I am still loosing weight on WW and it is going great(or would that be the minus side 🙂 ). Also had a friend/photog take some family pictures and I will be posting a new photo soon I think.
So around my birthday(in may) I bought some new peddles for Katrina, they allowed me to use some neato shows that actually clip in to them increasing your output/efficiency. I tried the shoes on at the store and a few weeks later had my wife pick them up for me. THEY DID NOT FIT ANYMORE! I could not return them, so in to the closet they went. I had gained back to much weight and my feet were not exempt apparently :(. Today, I tried them on again..and they fit! Not great, in fact not by much, but they fit! I went out to Katrina and tried them out and it was amazing! We just took a quick ride, but I can’t wait to loose some more weight and try these on a big trip!
I feel so depressed today, yesterday was horrific point wise! My slug butt was sitting around being hungry today, but I wasn’t hungry I was bored/depressed! So I decided a quick ride would be a great idea, and off I went on Katrina. The weather was cool and overcast, and I soon found myself past smith park, so I decided to head to mound view again! Alas, I did not make it to mound view, instead I wound up even further! I went out to my folks place, a long term goal I have had. In total my trip there and back again was 7.5 miles!! Woot! My butt is sore, but not to bad…and I feel great otherwise!
