Park to Park Ride

Saturday, September 25, 2010

Hello All,

It's a beautiful sunny day here in NY. With my BIG event coming up next Sunday decided to give it a try this weekend and shoot for 30 miles. I ended up completing 22.69 miles today not my goal but I'm proud of myself nonetheless, below are my stats from today's ride.

Distance - 22.69 mi
Duration - 3:23:26 hr/min/sec
Exe. Time in Heart Zone - 49:07 min/sec
Cal burned - 1,759 kCal
Pace - 8.97 min/mi
Speed - 6.69 mi/h

It was tough - Forest Park has got to be one of Queen's most beautiful Park, but it had an unexpected twist - - - rolling hills. Nothing makes me feel worse about being out of shape than riding on rolling hills, I tried to silence the self pity & excuses pouring out begging me to stop. I took breaks, refueled took pictures and continued. I kept telling myself that the rolling hills will make me stronger, build endurance and a great workout.

As I was struggling up some of the hills, I noticed other joggers, runners, walkers, etc and it could be my own hang ups I thought they were looking at me & judging me. But I know they work hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle and I'm no different so I do belong!

Great ride, beautiful day, gonna see my family later & I'm feeling good about myself.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
