Cycling / Biking
I enjoy biking in the mornings before I start work, it helps sets the tone for the rest of my day, may it be work or play. Biking improved my mood, my appetite and helped with my stress. I started taking 1-hour bike rides the distance I achieved is 8km (roughly 5 mi). I set a goal for how far I can go for an hour of bike riding. After a week I targeted 12km but still maintaining my 1 hour goal. Of course I had to amp up my speed because I never increased my ride duration. At first, it was pretty hard to achieve as I get tired easily but with patience and dedication, I’m now at my 25km goal.
