Twice now, twice I've ridden Husband's stationary bike without (1) dying or (2) bisecting my ladygarden . . .
. . . each of which seemed a clear possibility the first time I mounted the dreaded beast.
But with the help of a little extra padding from my good friends at Derri-Air (isn't that a great name?), I sit quite comfortably.
I haven't figured out all the gizmos on the control panel, but I've ridden for 25 minutes each time and I think I covered about five miles. Sweet! (and sweat! Good lord but I do sweat.)
And — I like it! The time passes relatively quickly, and my knees are much less knackered afterward than when I walk.
I've also resumed lifting weights and working my core, and I'm already stronger than I was last week. Progress!
Just a quick post tonight, I wanted to give you all something different to look at than Marcia Brady, but I am crazybusy at present — parent-school-kid stuff (May is NUTS), church stuff (after the election this weekend, I am DONE with this committee!!!!!!), and work, so much editing work!!
I'm now going to pull dandelions out of my lawn with my son, then switch fall/winter clothes for spring/summer clothes in my closet, and then go to Trader Joe's and also get a haircut. Busy busy!!
