Riding to Work: Day 2
On my way home last night I tried taking a local cycle route home, which was a beautiful route, marred by the the Easter holidays (ie, loads of kids and dog walkers). I rode it again this morning hoping it would be quieter at 7am and wasn't disappointed; I just saw 2 dog walkers. It does seem to be a bit slower than riding the roads though, as it's a bit more technical with cycle path barriers and narrow bits! :)
Not sure which way to go back this evening - the dilemma!
When I got to the office, I then did a quick 20 minutes on the Arc trainer and 8 on the rowing machines to give my arms a bit of a workout. Gonna try to get back on the Stronglifts programme after Easter though, after my somewhat heavier cardio focus recently.
Cycling (average speed = 8.8 mph (according to MapMyRide - included slow cycle path)) = 31 minutes
Arc Trainer (Level 6, 130+ rpm) = 20 minutes
Rowing Machine (moderate speed, 32+ spm) = 8 mins
Plus ride home: Cycling = 30 minutes(ish)
