My goal for summer 2008

I'm not very good at going out and exercising. Ever since I screwed up my knee some how I haven't been able to run on and so that has limit what I have been able to do to help exercise my body. I have been wanting to get back into shape for quite some time now and this summer I came up with a great idea on how to do that. Bike to work! Perfect! I now have the goal to ride my bike every day to and from work. So Travis and I unwrapped the bikes, dusted them off, pumped up the tires, and rode our bikes to my work. I thought I would do a test run to see how long it would take for me to get there. Guess how long? Just under fifteen minutes! How cool is that? Not a lot of time at all. So this is my goal. We will see how it goes. Hopefully I am successful and hopefully by the end of the summer, I will thighs like someone who rides their bike every day. Can you picture it now? Oh baby, Oh baby. Wish me luck!

Great idea!! I know you'll keep your goal...isn't it pretty nice weather-wise, there in PA, during the summer?

I totally ride my bike to work every day! Weather permitting of course. It's pretty much the coolest. It takes me about half an hour and is uphill the whole way to work, so I get a fantastic cardio workout on a daily basis. Then I just coast home. Woot! Hooray for bikes!

Nicely done! I've started walking everywhere. I walk almost two miles to and from work everyday. It saves so much on gas too! Go you!

I think that is a great goal! You'll have those dancer legs back in no time flat!

Sweet! Plus you totally look super cute on the bike, so why not? I walk to work everyday. All day. :)

Holly said...

Good for you! It's great to hear what you two are doing and keep tabs on ya!

Awesome idea, I wish I could do that too. You'll save a ton on gas-you should save the money you'd spend on gas and use it for something SUPER DUPER COOL!

Hey Travis and Camille!!
Elaine was blog-surfing and found your blog! I'm glad that you guys have a blog - seems like this is the way everyone keeps in touch these days...
Check out our blog and we can catch up on life later!
By the way, the bike idea is really awesome. I love to ride my bike during the summer - to and from work and the occasional summer class.
