Methinks this cycling regimen is going to kill me. ;-) Here's a piece of personal information that likely noone wants: I'm seriously overweight, to the tune of about 60-70 pounds (I'm Canadian born and bred, and I was still raised to weigh myself in pounds, not kilograms; go figure), so I've been researching effective ways of reducing that surplus. I've been taking two approaches: diet, and exercise. Well, okay, I've put off the exercise as long as humanly possibly, but the will to remain on a fixed low-carb diet just isn't there.
So, I'm back on the bike with Erica. Last night was 5.6 miles, and tonight we did about 4.5. Not very far, but enough to make me realize just how out of shape I am. Once the temperatures around here start cooperating (this evening was about 81 degrees, which is fine, but during the day it's pushing 90-95), I'm going to try and make myself bike to and from work (it's a three mile ride). I gotta admit, it's nice being active again. We're discussing finding a Tae Kwon Do club in the area and signing up (I used to study it, and Erica has always wanted to try), which would add a little variety to the evening routine. Here's hoping I manage to knock a few pounds off this way.
