Time for another article here at ‘The MA Life’ which is only 88 days away… WHAT?
I swear, time is moving way to fast for my liking but oh well, I am excited. As usual, I am going to update you with what I am doing with my graduate summer.
Waiting for Graduation. That’s what. I’m waiting for my graduation on July 20th. OH! That’s something I can update you on. I received my final grade yesterday and after some calculations, I figured I will be graduating for 61% meaning a 2:1 classification in BA (Hons) Drama in the Community, meaning, I can do my Master’s! Woohoo!
Today’s article is called ‘#BikeLife’ and if you had not already guessed, it’s about biking. Yes, that is right biking. Sounds like exercise, right? I bet you’re wondering why me, JustGeorgeJ, is writing about exercise. Well, I love biking readers! Always have, I just have not done it in a while.
About a year ago I started working at Halfords and ended up buying the most beautiful bike. A Voodoo Marasa. Nicknamed ‘Vanessa’ or ‘The Beast’. She is a she, yes. She is also a hybrid – mix between a road bike and a mountain bike. She is an excellent little bike and I’ve neglected to ride it in the past year, until now!
This is Vanessa getting a clean after being locked away in a shed for a LONG time.
Anyway, I’m on sort of a ‘health kick’ now. I want to lose a bit of weight as I am not happy with my body and what better what to do that than to return to the exercise I love the most? Biking! Therefore, yesterday I went out on a little bike ride and get the feel for riding again and it was fantastic. I love biking as it is so freeing… until you feel the burn in your legs.
Then there was today, I went out on a bike ride and started using the ‘Strava’ app (It’s a fantastic app if you have never used it, tracks a lot of your progress and routes!) and discovered I did a 9.3-mile ride around beautiful Lincoln. It was even nicer given the fact it was sunny and warm! Also, the app told me I reached 31mph… that is crazy. I do remember the point I reached that speed because my legs were killing after! And no, I was not going down a hill before you try and get smart with me!
It doesn’t look like much from the picture above, but I kept backtracking down roads I had already been down and so on. It was just so good to get out. I also popped back to Halfords to get some cycling clothes and rucksack – all the essentials!
Therefore, at the minute, this is what I am doing with my summer. Working and trying to cycle at least every day!
And remember, #BikeLife
