Nailed three bouts of cardio today...don't know if I've EVER done that before...woo HOO! :-)
Treadmill 1st thing...3 miles @ 5-6 mph for 35 mins.
Lunch? Colleagues were heading out to the park for a walk...sure! I'll join you! Grab the Nordic poles and I'm OFF for another brisk walk for around 30 mins.
Tonight? Some down time in between sessions...grab the Nordic poles for ANOTHER 30 mins. of fast walking.
Also stopped by the bike shop to pester them again...test rode a few bikes earlier in the week. This AWESOME stretch of PERFECT weather has me so PSYCHED to hit the open road...!
...and I FINALLY chose my new bicycle and asked them to have it ready (put fenders, racks, bottle holder on) for me to pick up tomorrow night...woo hoo!
Here's a link to the bicycle:
It's truly astonishing how pricey bicycles can be! Tough to swallow that, but I figure this is a bike that will likely go the distance and last me for the rest of my biking days. The fellow at the bike shop was pleased to hear that I was willing to go with the drop-down handlebars and said that this also happened to be the same model HE owned and rode. It sounds like a versatile, durable workhorse.
