First bike ride of the year!
Sunday, March 07, 2010
Ok ok...I was going to take my first bike ride during the week of Mar 16-21 when I will be on my spring break from college, but it was a beautiful day out here in New England! Can you believe it hit 60 degrees today on the southcoast of Massachusetts/!?!?! Me either! Sometimes you just gotta grab the bull by the horns and go along for the ride!
I had time constraints because of having to get back in time for choir practice, but nonetheless, I rode 12.5 miles....I know that is quite a short ride, but it was great! Felt so good to be in the great outdoors on a bike with beautiful scenery, as opposed to the stationary bike at the gym with no scenery. The wind was quite nippy today, as I rode along the oceanfront, but I didn't mind....it was actually quite refreshing :) I wore my little gloves so that my fingers didnt freeze, and just a sweatshirt and a pair of exercise pants....beautiful riding weather, just wished I had a longer timeframe. I even locked up the bike at a wildlife sanctuary and went for a little walk along the rocky coast and snapped a few pictures.....just gorgeous! I can't tell you how much I needed some fresh air!
Woohoott! Now I am so ready to go for my 30 mile bike ride! Well, I did today's ride in just over an hour, so I should have no problem doing the 30 mile ride next week :)
