WOD – Cycling loops around Garfield Park lagoon in support of USO

With only a solid two hours before work, I wanted to get a run in preferably because the weather was beautiful today. However, two hours was just not enough to drive to a location, get the run in, and get back in time to shower before work, so I went with the second best thing. A bike ride! And since I was running on limit time, I chose Garfield Park as my route because the location is near my apartment and I can get in a few easy loops around the lagoon with no worries of being far out.

The workout was what I thought it would be since I had not touched my bike in months due to winter season. I felt the burn in my quadriceps and clipping in-and-out of my pedals was very sloppy due to not having had touched my bike in a season, but it is what it is. After only 3.17 mile ride, I feel great and I look forward to gauging upcoming temperatures based off of what it was today to make my judgment on whether or whether not to get out on my bike.

    • It was a well needed workout due to being bogged down with my semester, and the cold weather. Those few days of good weather, I got up early and knocked workouts out. I believe our temperatures will be similar this upcoming week.
