Exercise Victory

May 26, 2009

About a month ago I biked about 7 miles, with my path including one or two arduous uphill climbs.   During the uphill segment I was dying and had to pull over and take a break.

This time I was determined not to take a break.   I was riding up the hill and passed what looked like my previous rest stop, but I thought that it couldn’t be that because it was too early in the uphill segment.   When I got to the top of the hill I thought for sure that there was another, steeper incline that I had not yet reached.   Then I saw the exit to the trail!   I am amazed that I not only did not rest this time, but thought I still had more to go when I passed the last hill.  

Then I did it again!  I biked about 13 miles total.

This morning I did an hour of incline walking on the Nordic Track incline treadmill.   I did between 5%-15% inclines, with 1 minute at no incline for rest, at 3.5 mph.  I was dying through most of it, but I feel great now.
