Today’s Agenda: Make-up missed cardio.
Thanks for coming back,
Yesterday’s rest helped re-energize me. I couldn’t sit out today. Too much guilt from dropping the cardio activity. I Decided to take a bike ride on one of Colorado’s wonderful bike paths.
I am a hypocrite. Every time I see someone riding a motorcycle, which in Colorado is a lot (the state does not have a helmet law), without a helmet (which is often) I criticize them saying how stupid they are and why would they risk their livelihood over a vanity reason. Yet I ride a bicycle from time to time – without a helmet. My excuse – when I grew up kids didn’t year helmets, at least not the majority.
Well today I come to redeem myself. This morning I pulled my bike down and got aboard the one-brake catastrophe. I’m borrowing my girlfriend’s helmet for today’s ride.
Picture will be coming, but my girlfriend is on a hike and no camera.
Then my bike had a flat. I was 3-miles away from home. My bike has no accessories – like an air pump. Lucky for me I was near a bus stop and had brought my wallet. Thank God for a bus pass, or it would have been a long walk home.
And the helmet was not an issue. I felt proud to have broke through my stigma.
Word of Advice: Safety first. One-seventh of all cyclists killed in 2008 were between the ages of 5-15 years old. And 716 total deaths. There is a shocking number of statistics every cyclists needs to read. Be safe. If I can do it, so can you.
