So much for April’s 30-day bike challenge. I’ve been so intimidated by these ferocious winds I only took the bike out a couple of times, which means it was not a breakout month in terms of sustainability miles.
I walked from work to the downtown library and back one day and rode my bike with Colleen from the Ossian jogging path to the grocery store and back another time. Total for the month: 1.8 miles. Total for the year so far: 5.2 miles.
Obviously I need to do better. Reading this post on Fit Recovery the other day makes me feel like I need to quit being a weenie about the wind. Yes, it’s much tougher riding in it than running, but clearly it can be done. (Besides, the stronger the wind, the better workout you get.)
By the way, I’m wondering if “sustainability miles” is really the best name for this project. The concept is to burn more calories and less oil getting where I need to go. Maybe if I came up with a more fitting name I’d get more invested in this…
