Well after a very un-eventful afternoon, Mick, Snotface and myself decided to go for a bit of a ride this afternoon. I have to say, that Mick is the most supportive person I have ever known. He quietly let’s me go about and do what I do. If I put weight on, he doesn’t say anything, when I complain about gaining weight, he quietly listens. But when I want to exercise (like going for a bike ride, or a walk etc) and I don’t want to go by myself, he’s right there next to me, making sure that my tyres are pumped up nicely, and that I have enough water in my water bottle, and then planning a route for us to take. I’d truly be lost without him.
But seriously, that wasn’t the point of this post. The point is, we went for a bike ride this evening when Mick got home from work. 51 minutes of hellish torture. I used to be good at this bike riding lark. But it’s been so long since I’ve done it, and I’m so seriously unfit that I just wanted it to end. But yay I managed to last our entire trip. I was hoping for an hour, but the route didn’t take us quite that long so we were home in under an hour. But I still managed to burn 519 calories.
Quick question for anyone out there willing to answer though. I had my iPod with me, with RunKeeper going and the GPS was (supposedly) on, though it wouldn’t calculate our distance at all. Does anyone know how to fix this issue? I really don’t want to have to come home all the time and plot my maps on RunKeeper when I can load it up automatically. That takes valuable blogging time away from me – hence the very weak and boring post tonight, I’m knackered.
Update on kilometre challenge: up to 66 likes, and the post is still open for likes for about another 14 hours. Holy hell I’m going to be busy. (And with tonight’s bike ride I only have 61km left to fulfill.)
