It was a first…but not a last…

When I arrived in Ann Arbor today to work out with Demond, I was this elementary in my bike information. I had a bike and that was about as far as it went. I have to admit, I never really understood what a good workout biking can be.  And so Demond, Darrel, Mike and I set out on a bike ride. I had no clue what I was in for.

I learned that you should pedal the entire time. I was a bit alarmed since I enjoy coasting. I learned about finding my rhythm and then using my gears to keep that rhythm. I learned never to stop on the way UP a hill and I learned  that once you get to the river in Ann Arbor, getting back is a lot of up hill….

I also learned that biking for 90 minutes kept my heart rate in a good fat burning range and the feeling of completion brings with it a desire to do more on my own this week.

I started as an elementary bike for sure. I ended a bit more as represented in this picture!

One thought on “It was a first…but not a last…”

  1. I also learned a few lessons from this bike ride… You are amazing on that magical bike of yours my dear and what an awesome job you did! Yes, there will be many more bike rides coming in the very near future so be ready for any curveballs coming your way. I know you can handle them as you are always ready and willing to step up and take on the next challenge.
    Again, get me those new numbers and again, awesome job!!!! Oh yeah, there will be a biking event coming up and I am going to see if I can get us in as a team so stay tuned my dear.
