11:03 am - Marvelous bike ride
Though, somehow, I wish there were a different term I could use. See, I barely had to pedal. It was all downhill.
I've decided to ride my bike to and from work. To work is all downhill, and from work is all uphill. This suits me well.
Today was particularly nice because all the lights were in my favor. I probably averaged 30 or 40 mph. I certainly outpaced many of the cars. :-) It was kind of exhilarating and it cut my commute time to 5 minutes from 30.
Going home is faster too, even though it's all uphill. I can still bicycle uphill faster than I can walk. It's good exercise too. I do have a reasonably frequent cardiovascular workout that I engage in anyway *grin*, but the bike ride is bit more strenuous. I should soon be back to the level of fitness I would be at the end of a summer in Minneapolis.
