I went bike riding this morning just as the sun was coming up. I don’t recall the time, it was before 7am though. Instead of stopping at California Ave and turning right and going back home, this time I decided to keep going to Truxton and turn left to go to Oak St. which is the way to get to Beach Park where the bike path is at.
I went to Oak but had to turn around and come back home because I’m so heavy that as I was riding my bike I could tell that my seat was going down because my legs were no longer straight when my pedal was all the way down. They were bending still and when I left the house they were straight. So I’m so heavy that I’m pushing my seat down which is not good. Next time I go on a ride I have to raise the seat again. I have a feeling that until I lose this website I’m gonna have to keep raising the seat every time.
That’s ok I guess. I’m just happy that I rode a longer distance than before. 38 minutes is a lot longer than 14 minutes. I also rode for 4.2 miles total. I checked it out on Google Maps. Go me!
By the way, I was so close to Beach Park, like 5 blocks from it. I was so close I could have tasted it. I had no idea that I was that close either. If I knew I was that close I would’ve tried harder to get there. At least they had water so I could have refilled my bottle lol. I ran out just as I was getting closer to the house. That only tells me I need to bring the bigger bottle next time lol.
Edit: I went to Spark People to add my cardio for today and 38 min at 10 mph (I don’t know what my speed is as I don’t have a bike odometer and 10 mph is the lowest they have so it’s my only option) and that is 342 calories burned. The total for the whole week is 87 of 90 min that they require you to do and 783 of 780 calories burned. They only want you to do exercise cause they are there to tell you what you need to do to get thin. You aren’t “required” to do anything you don’t want to in which case you don’t have to sign up on their website. But anyway, my point is that I exceeded the amount of calories for the whole week but I was still 3 minutes shy of the amount of time. That’s fine though because next week will be double because I was so close to Beach Park that next time I will actually make it there and maybe even get to ride on the bike path for a little while. I might end up doing the entire 90 min for the entire week in just 2 sessions.
