I have been trying to track the distance, time, and calorie burn experienced through this type of exercise to see if it really has a great deal of effect against blood sugar levels. It does have a nominal momentary effect, for the better. Many of the things I try have implemented provide temporary, albeit minimal, reduction. Daisy-chaining a lot of minimally beneficial things together throughout the day works fairly well.
Bicycling is fun, in addition to being healthy. I set a daily goal of fifty miles. I'm almost there. Yesterday was the highest daily mileage achieved in a single session, 20.3 miles on the morning ride. was aiming for twenty and overshot the goal. It took just over two hours to complete and burned off over 490 calories. The goal now is to add an extra ten-mile ride at the end of the day, to make thirty, and sustain that for the next two weeks.
If you're at all interested in bicycling, I encourage you to try it. You don't have to go for fifty miles per day, but any goal above zero can help your health.
