26 mph and bunny rabbits
The bunny rabbits were everywhere today. Cute little brown guys with little fluffy white bunny tails. The cutest things ever.
Bike riding is so much fun and the easiest exercise I've ever done. My heart rate hangs right around 140, sometimes going up to 161 (my resting heart rate is 48). I always burn at least 500 calories in an hour. I love the sunshine and the wind on my face. I don't even mind the bugs in my teeth (riding through clouds of gnats with my mouth open...yuck!).
I made it all the way to the top of steepest hill today without stopping. I couldn't let the lady with the baby in a stroller that was running up the hill beat me to the top.
If you don't own a bike or haven't ridden one in a while, you've got to get out there and do it. I seriously haven't had this much fun working out in years. My new rule though is if I bike for an hour, no gym. It's a good rule, and good for me. Moderation in all things, including exercise.
