Just checking in to let you know I made it to work today in one piece—just in case you were worried. It was probably more than 15 miles, because I chose to avoid traffic over finding the shortest route (and did so very successfully!) It was fun, a bit of an adventure, and my legs feel a little funny now, so I beat on them periodically. I left at 6:40 and got here at 8:20, and I generally average 12 MPH, so I was a bit slow apparently, although I still think all the windy bike trails added to my total mileage. No gym for me today—I got here too late. At 3ish I’ll bike the 5 miles over into downtown and pickup the van to go home to the kids.
I think of it this way—why buy fuel to get myself to work when I have plenty already stored on my body that I can use for free? 😉
