Yesterday was my first attempt at documenting my after work work-outs. I am planning on doing a serious of short little webisodes that documents my attempts at including fitness in my now hectic life. The filming actually went really well and I was surprised that everything went smoothly. The only hang up is I filmed everything on my iPhone vertically, so those two black bars show up on the sides of the video. Kind of a bummer, but I think I will still put it together and show it in a while, every first attempt at something isn't always perfect right?
I was able to piece together a nice bike ride. It did feel rushed and I was not really feeling it after the long commute home from work. But once I got out on the trail it felt great! I put in about 12 miles and I am starting to get more comfortable on my bike. Who knows maybe a triathlon may be in my future...but I am not signing up for anything quite just yet!
Last Monday I had the pleasure of having Eric visit me in Seattle on his way up to Alaska. He rented a bike and we hopped on the Burke-Gilman trail and headed north to the Red Hook Brewery in Woodinville. It was a great ride on a sunny day!
Once we got to the brewery we were ready to eat. The food was tasty and I enjoyed my latest discovery, sparkling water! Yeah I know not that exciting but it has been really enjoyable for me as an alternative to soda.
Eric had a pint of Red Hooks finest and we loaded up and headed back. Overall a great visit and a great bike ride. On a side note we did run into some issues with the rental bike. The chain kept popping off! I tell ya it would of made for a great drinking game if we had some booze cause it seemed to pop off every time we thought that it was fixed...in the end though it was great for a laugh and we had a amazing time!
