I love bike riding and I am gonna be doing it alot this summer. I got a brand new bike this which is nice because the one I have been using didn't fit me properly, the handle bars were too far away, the seat hurt my ass and because of that my back was always sore after bike riding. Excited to try my new bike. The reason why I am somewhat sad is because I possibly have Plantar Fasciitis which I would have gotten last summer while walking almost my entire pregnancy I didn't know that your heels hurting all the time wasn't normal but I have made an appointment with my doctor to verify and get the testing done to find out for sure...sad because I also love walking and running, if I have PF I won't be able to do my run training for my first half marathon which is in Aug and no more long walks another thing I love doing :( but HAPPY because at least I can still go for bike rides and get my cardio up that way.
I am not working at the moment because I am on Mat Leave but when I am at work in the warmer months I either walk or bike ride to work every year I have done it that past 3 years (which is about 6 months out of each year that it is warm enough to do so) it takes about 1 hour and 10 min walking (one way) and about 25 min or so depending how fast I ride somedays I take it slow some days I like to get to work as fast I as I can (one way). I love it because its easier on the environment, it saves me money, its fun, relaxing, peaceful and its good exercise. I love going for long bike rides I live in the city so sometimes I like to challenge myself to ride to a family memebers house that is far away like where my mom used to live was 2 hours away. Everyone has moved now so I have new challenges ahead of me once I am used to biking again.
Except I won't be able to as much biking once my husband goes back to work May 3 (out of town) I have 3 kids and my oldest isn't quite old enough to babysit for me everyday to go bike ride so I have to take advantage right now and then figure something out till I go back to work. But once i go back to work I will be biking to work and back everyday and thats at least 20 km a day, plus bike riding at lunch time and that also doesn't include the weekends. My youngest is too small for the baby bike trailer I bought so that just ruined my whole summer but at least next summer I can take him out bike riding and get in my KM.
Glad to be here and can't wait to get back on!
Never lose hope, never give up!
