Had another great bike ride this morning.
I went 11.3 miles in just over an hour. WOW!
That's my all time farthest so far!
I think I like this bike riding thing. :D
My HR was real good, too. The highest it got was 182, but it was only there for just a short while. Most of the time it stayed around 160. And I burned over 700 calories.
I ran out of gas half way through, but stopped and rested until my heart rate got back down to around 135-140 and then I had enough energy to make it the rest of the way home.
What a ride!
I overdid it a bit this past weekend. Sonny's BBQ has put their nutritional information online and I was able to realistically figure my points for what I'd eaten and man is their food bad for you. I had the BBQ chicken, which is essentially a quarter of a smoked chicken without any BBQ sauce. IT WAS 18 POINTS!! Can you believe that??!! I thought I was doing good by eating chicken that wasn't marinated or smothered in sauce. Boy was I wrong. Now, granted, I didn't eat the skin and that probably took off a few points. So maybe realistically it was 15 points. But then there was the green beans 3pts, corn on the cob 2pts plus a little butter, maybe another 3 pts (overestimating). I had a salad bar with about a tablespoon of their chicken salad and maybe 2 tablespoons of their crab salad, so add another 5-8 pts. What a horribly high in points meal!
Then yesterday we went to Pizza Hut for lunch, but I didn't have dinner. Well, actually, I had a bowl of cereal for dinner so I think it balanced out.
Though a high fat weekend, it was worth it (sort of). I'm sure my ride this morning compensated for it. Hopefully.
Well, off to eat some high-protein cereal and soy milk and then off to work.
Have a great day!!
By the way, did you guys check out some of the blogs that people put in my comments from yesterday? I added a couple of them to my list of blogs I like. Keep 'em comin'.
