Now that I take medication for high blood pressure and cholesterol...riding is just one of the many ways to keep the heart pumping. We also have an extra bike upstairs on a stationary roller for keeping in shape. But those miles are not equal to the effort of riding the hills. A couple years ago my best day was 65 miles with many hills included. Marsha was my motivator and would push me to get extra butt miles. I would ride the rollers twice a day and would ride the Burke Gilman trail almost every other day. But when I moved away from Kenmore (the trail was 1/2 block from my condo) it seemed less motivational. The trail did not cry out "ride me".
Marsha continues to push me and I know it works both ways...if I ride then she will ride. At 65 it is very easy to grab that remote and watch a movie. I even have a permanent reminder in outlook every day to ride. But, who reads their nagging mail? :)
Where is my remote control?
