Now, I'm tired.

OK, I have to say... going home? Much harder than pedaling to work.

My killer was the wind. Going down, there was hardly a breeze, so it never played a role. Going home, however, I was against the wind the entire way. Fuck! Slowed me down a lot.

I even had to get off and walk it on the one major up-hill. I just didn't have anything left.

But, I made it. And I'm proud of that. I'm overweight, out of shape, never known a gym to save my life... but I bicycled 10 miles today. That's got to count for something.

Congrats on making it!

Ten miles of anything counts as something quite impressive.

Going to try again tomorrow?

Unfortunately no. I have a big meeting tomorrow, and have to dress nice. Can't get the clothes all sweaty.

It's true. Those business types usually aren't into all that.

Congrats again though! I'm sure that you'll have a chance to do it again soon!

also, as you build up stregnth, you actually should take a day off in-between sessions to give your body (unused to such things) a chance to repair itself.

then the boymeat will be stronger! then bike! then day off... then bike!

in a few weeks: bike every day!

voila!

Kel bikes to work a lot, whenever he has a job at Silver Cup or the Greenpoint studios. His butt is amazing! And oh those thighs...

The wind and hills may have slowed you down today but I bet by the time summer ends, you'll be flying up and down the hills in no time!

I think it's really cool that you're biking to work :)

Ah, this reminds me when I purchased my new bike in CA. I was so excited at the thought of biking to the coffee shops and restaurants several miles away, however....

I was so used to the mountainous landscape in LA County, I failed to truly notice how few flat roads existed in my neighborhood (or anywhere.) Pretty much only one.

Turns out most haul their bike via their car out to flat land. Took me months and an injury before it was a truly comfortable trek.

good for you!

When I biked to work (7.5 miles each way) I had to alternate days. I just couldn't take two days in a row. (I also had major hills getting home.)

10 miles? That counts for quite a bit. And yeah, when I was (more of, but still not much of) a serious rider, wind would kick my ass like whoa.

Yay, bike!
I love biking! It's so awesome that you biked to work and you biked home. Yay! Also, the wind sucks a lot when it's against you.
