Or so it seems.
This weekend, Adam and I trekked — slogged — despite the timechange to go biking on the LA River Bikepath down to Long Beach and back again. Up at 5am to see some sleepy Starbucks folks, then onto Duarte at 7am to start the ride before sunrise. The bikepath is sketchy, gritty and narrow.
We completed this ride in 6 hours for a total of 78 miles, including an hour of breaks.
A little background. This ride was once inconceivably difficult, and never did we think that a return trip from Long Beach was possible — especially without a 2800 calorie lunch!
I barely made it back — I was literally 'bonked' the last 15 miles , but we'll try again this weekend I think.

Science Friday put together one of the best discussions on calories, weight loss and diet that I've ever heard. If you're even remotely interested in weight related issues, this is definitely worth listening to.
I learned a lot — listen here (about 8 minutes).
