I've made progress!
I'm finnaly starting to notice that I am makeing progress! Yay!
I baught my bike back in January, but didn't start logging my bike rides till the end of Feb. I have found a routine path to take, that is about 5 - 6 miles. I vary the path sometimes to cut accross the top of a levie instead of onthe street.
Sometimes I cut through a vacant grassy field and drainage ditch just for the fun of it while thinking to myself "Roads? Where I'm going, I don't need roads!"
So anyhow I noticed that I"m not stoping to rest anymore. I feel less wore out at the end of my ride. I also started tracking my weight. I weigh myself after a ride, and shower on wensdays. This week will be my third wensday weigh in.
Today, I took a diffrent path. I road to the corner Chevron station and back (Still cut accross the levie on the way back)
I had done this once before and it was hell. It was a steep downhill, then a loooong drawn out uphill that just kept going on forever...
SO for the return trip that day, I took a difrent street back that was shorter and more level.
Well todays ride on that same path. I got up to 28 mph going down the hill, and going up it wasnt nearly as bad as it was before. I was kind of scared but I figured I could do it and I did! I didn't stop till I got to the Chevron station, where I drank some water. Turned around and came back. Comming back was alright, a long downhill grade, then a steep uphill one. Just took it slow and steady. But since I made it this time without stopping. (Other then at the Chevron station for a drink) helped prove tomyself that I am makeing progress!!
