Close to 2 hours

I didn't have it in me this winter to stay in "good" biking shape.  As always, must qualify that with "good shape for me".  March 1. brought out the sun.  I was able to take my bike to work.  That is always welcome to me.  It usually takes me around 15 minutes or so to get to work on the bike.  All is welcome, because 15 to and from is 30.  As the season goes on I don't consider it a workout, but today I did.  After work I kept riding toward the lake, and down 66th street.  All in all almost 2 hours of bike riding.  Woo Hoo!!

It was a great day out.  Yes, yes, yes, I just wore my work clothes (jeans, running shoes, etc..)  I had a low tire in the front so the going was slow, but I was so glad to be outside.  YAY for vitamin D.   I think you get enough just from your face.  It has been several years since I read my nutrition book, so don't remember.

Just a couple things to note.  I went for almost 2 hours.  My feet got cold, due to running shoes.  :)  I ate two sandwiches, and a 1/2 of cantaloupe when I got home, and took a nap.  Remember at the beginning of the season just being outside makes you tired.  I remember now.  :)

I took a couple pictures, but they didn't come out.  It was a great day.  I am so glad to be able to ride my bike to work.  I love it.

That is it.  Today is a run day!!  Woo Hoo!!

Oh one other thing, swimming is done for the foreseeable future.  Back is jacked for swimming.  I am going to let my aquatic center thing lapse, til maybe my first Inventory bonus.  We'll see how things are then.

Have a good day!!  :)
