Is cycling to work counted?

January 28, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Been biking to work (partially – until the MRTS stations) and it’s been alright.

The distance, time and pace are all very bad, but hey, it’s at 9:15 in the morning wading through peak hour traffic, dodging bikes and buses and breathing in the most polluted air in the world.

Yuck – it’s seriously horrible when one of those diesel vans or trucks come right in front and spew a whole lot of black exhaust fumes on me, especially right when I would be putting that extra bit of effort to get ahead of someone else – It almost chokes me and I could feel that stuff going right down my lungs. The cigarettes were far better. 🙂

But do these count towards my workouts? These are under 5 kms, 20 mins each. So, quite bad, here they are anyway.
