City biking 18  2.5 mi (7 / mi) +5m 7 / mi
6am Sunday morning. No cars on streets. Wanted a bit longer ride. So rode up to Wrigley Field, west a bit and back home in a box. First time breathing hard since March 25, my last rowing workout. 18 minutes at a moderate pace, and exhausted. Couldn't dismount; fell off bike. Sad.
City biking 7  1.0 mi (7 / mi)
First time on a bike in...8 months? Last fall, when I rode over to the 6am train to go up to Lake Bluff for the last 5k race of the season. Riding my bike from the Lake Bluff station got me to the Start Line just in time to hear the gun go off. Beautiful race....lots of Northshore hardwoods in red and orange, views of Lake Michigan, and the smell of those Republicans still burning leaves, just as they'd done for generations.
Today I rode half a mile down to the Mariano's supermarket, which was packed. Hardest part: getting on and off that 27" tall frame! Made the mistake of trying to dismount while still rolling, and just about swerved under a big bus. But with more careful bike handling, I think this may be a doable form of exercise a couple times a week. Only 7 more treatments, and I get to relax and see how they affect me over the rest of the summer.
