Today, I bought a bike. We only have one car and we live in the middle of town, so I figured it would be a good investment. It's pretty hilly around here, but I figured I'd get used to it. I biked the 2.6 miles to the library and back. Wow, with the sun and the humidity and hills and the fact that I haven't worked out in 8 days, it was quite an adventure! It took me an entire hour to go the 5.2 mile round trip and get my books (I had requested them, so it's not like I browsed around). Considering what goes up must come down (hills), I am not very proud of my time! I'll get better. I am hoping that by January when I start school, I will be good enough on the bike to ride the 4 miles to campus without huffing and puffing and getting quite so sweaty. I would not want to walk into class as nasty as I was when I came home! We will see. Anyone here bike to work/school? How do you keep from getting too gross?
