Ok, so on day three I got my workout in later rather than earlier.
Much later. Like @ 10pm. Actually it's a really nice time to ride: the streets are quiet and it's fun.
Upside: I got in my 31 minutes. (I pledged to complete 30 minutes a day +1, besting Newark Mayor Cory Booker by 1 minute each day. Just because I wanted to go him one better, but not go all crazy. I have my limits.)
Downside: Bitter cold, windy and I took out a Capital Bikeshare bike. Now I love the Cabis but I have to say: after zipping around on my Jamis Coda, those Cabis are heavy! That's why I'm amazed at how Tom Bridge has been making use of them for his workouts.
Tom, a tip of the hat to you.
Here's what I've done "so far this year".
On the bike(s) : 588 calories in 12.5 miles
On foot: 242 calories in 2.4 miles
Not earth shattering, but a start.
How about you? What's working for you?
