So I got this postie note in my email yesterday evening:
Gotta love when my friends remember what I'm supposed to be doing . *laffz*
Anyhow, here's how the last 10 (and a smidge over) months have gone biking-wise.
My average mph on any given day is 15.27. Not great, but I've been in a bit of a fight lately. Some days I just do NOT wanna get on that contraption. I think it's mostly because my knees have been putting up a fight and a half. When I dont ride, the right knee decides to act up and if I DO ride ...well depending on the ride I had that day my left knee likes to complain. It's to the point of having to put Icy Hot patches one either or the other OR both sometimes. Just another thing to add to my list for the dr this month (appt scehduled for the 17th)
At least I haven't totally given up on riding....that's a plus, right?
Time...I've been on that bike a total of 9405 minutes. That's 156.75 hours.... or 6.53125 DAYS if I was riding 24/7. Damn. All this time to only go 6 days?? *sigh* Maybe the next set of figures will cheer me up.
Mileage: 2,736.94 miles. I could have easily done a one way trip from Frenchville, Maine to Homestead, Florida and been on my way back again. Another 12096 miles and it would be a round trip. If I was going cross country, I'd be about 4 miles out from Sacramento, California... which I will be headed through by the time I get done with today's ride.
Calories killed: 95,832.3.
To put it in perspective... that's approximately 77 triple Whoppers with cheese (at 1250 calories...no fires, no soda, just the damned burger)...OR approximately 85 Dairy Queen Large vanilla shakes (at 1130 calories... approximately 74 of the chocolate variety at 1300 calories).
Even more perspective... my present favorite meal... the Subway meatball marinara foot long sandwich (no fries, no chips, no soda) is 1,120 calories. I've burned nearly 86 of those.
Even MORE perspective: My absolute favorite meal to go.... Chik-fila.
12 count nuggets: 400 calories
waffle fries (gotta have those!): 420 calories
cookies and cream milk shake: 700 calories (oh man...kill me now)
total meal: 1520 calories
all that time I've been riding and I've ONLY almost burned off 63 of those.
October 19th will be the one year anniversary of the biking....
