New Bedford, Massachusetts

Busy New Bedford, Ma. harbor.

New Bedford is a city in Bristol County, Massachusetts, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 95,072, making it the sixth-largest city in Massachusetts. New Bedford is nicknamed “The Whaling City” because it was one of the world’s most important whaling ports in the nineteenth century, along with Nantucket, Massachusetts and New London, Connecticut.

The Port of New Bedford has been the nation’s number one most valuable fishing port since 2001.

I decided bike to the fitness center for lower body workout with the personal trainer.  It’s usually a class of 3 or 4 in attendance.  When the trainer is a no show, as happened today, I do the workout on my own.  When that happens, I get a much tougher routine done.  Today was three sets of four different exercises with no rest between sets. Leg press , sumo squats, lunges with weights, and  leg extensions.  All with heavy weights. After 15 minutes, I have a good sweat going on. The second 15 minutes is Kettle bells swings, suitcase squats with kettle bells and lunges.

After the training session, I got on the bike for a ride around the city.  I have to admit that it was a slog riding after such a heavy leg workout. It made the cardio more difficult riding with tired legs.  After riding around and taking photos for a while, it was time for lunch.  I walked in, ordered, got my food delivered to an outside table and ate.  That whole process took about 15 minutes.  When I reentered the cafe to recycle the paper waste, the line to order was out the door.  It’s all in the timing I suppose. 22-IMG_0365

Below is what me camera saw on today’s ride. I have an early appointment to get my hair done tomorrow, and I’ll most likely again ride with my camera as my companion.
