Change of cycling route

Postby Butterfly_Dawn » Thu Feb 22, 2007 10:00 am

Well, I have started uni this week and cycled 2 days (plus 1 day to work). work and home is 22km. Uni and home....37km :shock: 2hr total for the day

Was flagging a bit on the way here this morning so I think i may drive tomorrow and ease in to this just a little. Ride is good though. I'm guessing these last few kg will bugger off quick now :lol:
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Lol at the fab bum and thighs. The bloke certainly appreciates it! My arms (you wouldn't have guessed that hey) have also toned up a lot - riding actually works out more of your body than you would otherwise think, particularly when hills are involved. I think I worked out the other day I must have done around 5000km over the past year I have been riding :lol:

Somehow though I'm still stuck at around 74kg :roll:

No wonder you were so hungry Tegan. As you said you may well have to take that into consideration with your food intake.

I wouldn't have thought that cycling would tone up your arms so that is great if you are getting even more benefits from it.
