Today is Saturday and Crazy Jim and I rode our bikes 13.7 miles with a movie in between. We tackled the La Canada hill, then settled in for a mostly flat and eventually downhill return home. Have I mentioned lately that I am exceptional at going downhill? Big guys always feel good on the bike, when going downhill. I even reached 30 mph, while pedalling like a crazy person! Good times.
It felt great being on the bike again and I can tell that my weight loss is definitely improving my comfort, speed and fun on the bike. When I wanted to climb the hill more aggressively, I could pour it on. We also challenged ourselves to sprint a few sections near the end of the route and I was happy that I could put some power behind it.
Iron Man 2 was a big disappointment to me. I LOVED the first one, but found this one a bit boring and tedious.
I have been increasing my workout (from "almost nothing" to "something" every day). This activity (and sticking on my food plan) should finally help me on the scale. We'll see at Monday's weigh-in.
Keep Riding everyone!
