As anyone who knows me or reads my blog knows, I'm really not all that into exercise. As a matter of fact, I hate it.
Yesterday was the first truly Spring day we had in NY. Temps were relatively warm and I finally felt better. In the morning I decided to walk around the nearby lake. I love doing that so much more than getting on the treadmill and as a bonus it's an extra mile longer. So, not only did I walk the three miles around but I broke my previous time record and did it in 49 mins. Not bad!
Later that day, after taking my son to the Dr. he asked to go to Burger King. We hardly ever eat fast food but he wanted a chicken sandwich (we don't eat red meat) and was starving, so I said OK. We went, he got his food and he ate it on the way home. When we got home he said, "Ya know mom, it's not good to eat fast food and as an athlete I need to burn it off. Let's take our bikes and ride around the lake."
I told him I had already been around the lake but would ride with him and wait while he went around. So, we rode over and pass the first bench and I said, "No, next one." So we continued and passed another bench and again I said, "No, next one." Well, you can see where this is going.
Yes, I made it around the lake on the bike. Another three miles plus the 1/2 mile ride to and from our house. That's 6 1/2 miles in one day!!!!
I slept really well last night LOL!!! Wonder why? hahaha
