Bike 10/05/08

I got home from work, changed my clothes real quick and rushed out for today's scheduled cross training. Yes, I much prefer bike riding instead of walking or sweating to death on the elliptical trainer. When I walk, I feel like I could get it over with quicker if I just run. And I just HATE the elliptical trainer. Give me the dreadmill any day. Yeah, I hate it that much.

Okay, so the schedule called for 60min of doing something worthwhile. I just rode around the 'hood with no route in mind. I figured I'd ride around until it was time to come home. An hour later, it was pretty dark. So I'm thinking I need to buy some lights and such for my ride. Oh, and here's a news flash on my biking skills. **I can now steer comfortably with my right hand** Watch out now! LOL! Next on the list is to steer with my left hand. And then, maybe, just maybe I can ride with no hands like I did years ago.

So after all the hard work I did steering with one hand, I'm pretty beat. I'm off to relax and hopefully turn in early. Night all.

LOL, you're going to have a buff right arm if you keep up all that steering! You'll be doing BMX tricks in no time! ;)

Great job on the ride. I agree about the elliptical. Ugh.

Thanks for the invite to Silk City, I'll talk to J about it, but we usually don't go out much during the week since he teaches. I want to def go check that place out sometime though. Do you go often?

Yeah, the elliptical trainer bores me, too. At least on the dreadmill I'm distracted because I feel a little tired. On the elliptical I don't think about anything except how much longer I have to do it.

I like the bike too. I enjoy the elliptical but find that my feet go numb easily. Awesome time on that bike!
