The temperature today had a high of 40 (F), so the ice on the Parkway path should be melting. However, the air quality has been "red" all week. When I got up this morning, the fog was so thick that I couldn't see any trees from my window. Later, as the air warmed up, the fog thinned so I could see about 200 yards or so. I decided to go to the gym again due to the inversion and resulting air pollution that we're having.
I ran/walked for 15 minutes, about one mile, and then I rode the Expresso bike for 4 miles. I tried to slow down a bit and not push for speed. The 2-mile route I took had slight variations in elevation, and I shifted gears when ever peddling was too hard or too easy for my legs. I did the route twice, and my bottom was saddle-sore when I finished. My son said it takes about a week of cycling for one to get used to the hard saddle on the bike. When I finished the route for the second time, I was ready to stop and go home. I'm glad the daytime temperature is getting above freezing. Now, if the inversion will go away, I'll return to the Jordan River Parkway.
