I enjoyed my first time back on the bike today - 58 minutes, 13miles - not exactly fast, but it was on a 'cross bike and I think my mechanic needs to adjust it a little more. It felt great to be out there without a preggo belly, without having to waddle-pedal! And I loved not having to worry about my heart rate, it didn't matter that on every little hill I was in the easiest gear and still at a pretty high heart rate!
Isaac's mom was on a bike 5 days after he was born, but I think 18 days is still respectable! And today is Aidan's due date. Have I mentioned lately how glad I am he came out early, at 6-12? I'm so glad I'm not still pregnant! And so glad I didn't have to give birth to a big baby!
At least I can only get better from here on the bike. Should help me lose some baby weight. So far I lost about 20 pounds, but I have a long way to go, as seen in the photos! :-)
p.s. Sorry the photo below is funky - I left the white balance on Tungsten, so it was super blue to begin with. We adjusted it as best we could to remove the color cast.
