A New Way To Ride

I had last Friday off from work, and since I had some spare time I thought it would be a good idea to get a brick workout in (two different workouts back-to-back). I decided on a 35 mile bike ride and then a run. The ride went well, averaging over 17 mph, but some soreness in my left ankle limited me to a 3 mile run. It felt fine the next day, when I had two runs totaling over 7 miles.

But this blog post focuses on the bike ride, or should I say what went with me on the ride. I attached a GoPro camera to my bike helmet, and the following video is the result. You can get an idea of the area and how beautiful it is to ride in Iowa! So let me know what you think of the video, since it is my first attempt at it.  See if you can spot the following:

  • A dog running full speed
  • Marines doing a timed run
  • A wild turkey crossing the road
  • How many golfers are teeing up


Live healthy, be happy!

  1. I love the music…unfortunately, I couldn’t watch the whole thing…time constraints. But I will try and watch it another time. These GoPro videos are always so cool. Is there a way you can watch it in “fast mode,” which I think would be even cooler! Like a fast forward mode. You know what I mean?

    • I do know what you mean. This was my first time using it, so from know on I’ll edit them to shorter units or speed them up. Wanted to show the actual speed on this one.

  2. It was good for your first time! And honestly, at first, I thought it was sped up, but realized it wasn’t. You were cruising at a pretty good clip! Way to go!
