walking, biking, WW and the challenge...

So I went WWTGs this morning. Went 3.25 miles in about an hour. It started raining when we were maybe 5 minutes from the finish line. It lightened twice. Aaaahhhh! Here are my stats for this morning's walk:

Total Calories Burned: 450
Minimum HR: 73
Maximum HR: 140
Average HR: 121
Total Time Biking: 62 min
Total Distance: 3.25 miles

And I told you yesterday that I'd post pictures of my bike route. So here they are:

This is the bottom of the walking bridge that goes over the interstate. Not a very good angle because I was completely out of breath trying to take a picture on my cell phone while holding my bike. (whew)

This one is a full picture of the bridge:

Then this picture is one of the wide paths:

Another lady at work told me she wanted to join WW. I'm so excited that I've contributed in any way to them wanting to lose weight and get back into shape. It's so cool. Cathy also wants to join the 18 Pounds in 18 Weeks challenge. She knows she's coming into it a week late, but being as she's just starting the plan, she'll probably have a big loss the first week to get caught up with the rest of us.
