When I hit my mid-day low, I decided it was time to get out on my bike to see if I could remember how it worked.
As the saying goes “It’s just like riding a bike”. I got onto my bike, and headed out onto King Edward, successfully navigated traffic to Sussex, and then started southward on the Rideau River Eastern Parkway all the way down to Hog’s Back Falls, and then down the east side of the Rideau Canal to Sussex and then home again.
I was particularly pleased that my average speed was around 20 km/hr, and the burning of over 800 calories certainly didn’t hurt either. Once I hit a reasonably straight, flat section, I made a run for it to see how fast I could get up to. Pedal, pedal, pedal. Faster, faster faster. My bike computer hit 41 km/hr and then I coasted for a long time, and resumed cruising along at my regular pace.
Now, it’s time to head off to badminton, and see if my legs will still work there.
Maybe it’s time for you to get out walking or cycling instead of napping or watching TV.
