Default March Madness Exercise Challenge

For those, like me, who follow college hoops this is a very exciting month. Why not join in the madness? Work towards a gol this month. Whether miles, minutes, trips to the gym or trying something new. Have fun with it. The weather is warming up and soon it will be time to peel off the layers. Why not reveal a healthier, trimmer, more fit you

1. 12.4 (1 hr indoor)
2. 14.7 (1 hr 15 min)
6. 8.7 (45 min)
7. 50 (3.5 hrs) 264.2 to go!
10. 10.5 (1 hr) 253.7
13 17.3 (1.5 hrs) 236.4
14 15.6 (1.15 hrs) 220.8

well took a break, long week at work plus had new sneakers put on the bike for the road trip.

3/21 45 minutes (computer not working on spare bike)
3/22 1 hr (16 miles 204 miles)
3/23 45 minutes (9 miles 9 miles)
