Well I was really excited to pick up the bike today, but it seems I was overly optimistic about my first ride on it. I only managed to make it 3 miles on flat ground at 11mph, was shooting for 6. I didn't remember riding a bike to be this challenging, what really surprised me was not that my legs got tired, I was expecting that, but how quickly my arms tired. So I sucked it up in the evening got back on and rode the a mile and back to my youngest sons baseball game, which they won, he was the winning pitcher with 9 strikeouts and 1 walk in his season debut on the mound. His debut was much better than mine, lol.
On a brighter note, went to see my doctor today and found out I had lost 22 pounds, which really surprised me!!! Six weeks ago I cut out drinking soda, and cut portions close to half, I don't have scales in the house, I knew had lost a little weight but didn't see 22 pounds coming off that quick.
So did I mention my butt is really sore!! I'll be back on the bike in the morning giving it my best shot, I'm wondering how long it will take my bottom to get adjusted to riding on this little bitty saddle? lol
