Today, I did the longest bike ride I've ever done.
Lots of hills. Lots of steep hills. Some fast downhills.
A lot of fun (well, for me)
I WILL do that 100 mile bike ride.
The only reason I didn't do it today was that I had to be somewhere this afternoon.
Maybe tomorrow . . .

I have slayed my dragon pants! 5 years ago, I bought khakis which, back then, barely fit, but I wanted them, damnit! They've been hanging in my closet ever since, having been worn a grand total off 0 times. I once tried them on again and could not get them past my thighs. Today, on a whim, I tried them on again, and not only do they fit, but I won't be able to wear them much longer, because they're already very loose. Go me!

I bought a magnetic exercise bike three and a half weeks ago. I thought I was doing pretty good doing weight exercises daily and half hour walks each day. I was surprised I could only ride it for about five minutes after I put it together then I was completely winded. I'm now averaging about a 100 miles per week. My average cadence is between 100 rpm and 110 rpm. I did a 31 minute session this afternoon. I just finished completing a 35 minute session. Two sessions in one day at a good pace. I am pretty happy about that. I haven't had cardio like this in years. Slowly working back to a reasonable level of fitness. I would like to be in the condition I was in my mid 20's. That will take time. Cycling is combined with weights and, hopefully, not eating to much food that will compromise my goals - which is weight loss. I used to be 155 - 160 pounds in my younger years. I currently weigh in at 217 pounds. I have fought diabetes/prediabetes all my life - currently use insulin (watch your sugars). I used to road ride and mountain bike trail ride in my younger years. This exercise bike really helps out - completely quiet, 8 resistance levels, nice comfy seat, and computer tracks trip distance, calories, time, speed, odometer. I am excited to be doing this and achieving goals - don't have to go outside ride in the inclement weather. Better than in 2014 when I was lying in ER, the Doc's telling me I have 10% chance to live. They said if I want to live, I will have to really dig down deep and try. It was really hard lying in that hospital bed and listening to the whispering aspens, when I know I had so many more things I want to do. I'm a few more steps closer to getting to a level I want. Going to take some time, but will get there. I was always really fit, all the way up to my thirties - currently 50yrs old. It feels good to be sweating again, working out and increasing my stamina. Work towards getting back that feeling of being in the 'zone'.
