About a week ago, I heard about a local movement called “30 Days of Biking”. Their tag line is “We ride our bikes. every. friggin. day.” I was intrigued. So I signed up to take part. Now I have to do SOME sort of biking every day in April. Then I have to tweet about it each day. I figured this was the motivation I needed to get on my bike some more.
Thursday, April 1st:
Marie and hit the track for a killer duathlon workout:
Pharmie and I headed out for a quick 15 mile ride as the sun was starting to set:
Don't get excited: that's her tail...
Pharmie and I headed out to spend time with family over the weekend. So there was going to be NO good bike workout. But I managed to find my nephew’s trike (which was my old trike when I was little), and I did a few laps around my parent’s garage:
“You just posed for that photo” you say?
“You didn’t actually ride that” you say?
Well, I have a video that proves otherwise:
Again, still home with the family. But when we got back to the Cities, I hopped on the trainer for a minute and snapped a very “Easter-y” photo:
Tulips, hard-boiled Easter eggs, and left-over Easter ham
I never bike on Monday - I’m always too busy. But I managed to fit in a 30 minute Spinerval tempo workout on the trainer. (That’s what I like about this idea of “30 days of biking:” it will force me to think about biking every day no matter what.) Here I am after my final interval, and I was REALLY huffing and REALLY sweaty:
Yesterday, I WANTED to go for a long(ish) ride in the mid-afternoon, but it was chilly and raining. No thanks. Pharmie and I were going to do a trainer ride last night, but when she heard that I already had gone on a 10.5 mile run yesterday morning, she lost all motivation. I HAD good intentions; I had my water and my Nuun all ready to go:
I’m not sure what I’ll do today (with regards to biking), but I know I’d like to go for a nice long(ish) ride tomorrow. We’ll see. Click here to learn more about the "30 Days of Biking."
