Cycling
« on: June 22, 2011, 09:47:30 AM »
Just did my morning ride.  I've gotten into the habit of doing it every morning and am thrilled with the endurance I've garnered.  Just a short time ago I had to have a brother come and start the push mower for me because I didn't have the strength.  When I purchased this bike, I was determined to push myself in the exercise regiment that I'd been lacking of late.  That first ride was a whopping 1/4 mile and required a nap.  Now my morning ride is a couple of miles and my evening ride is the 7 mile loop around part of the lake we live on. 

Now if I could just figure out how to flatten the man boobs and shrink the belly fat, I'd be set.  This regiment is also great if you misbehave the previous evening.  You sweat out all the white zin toxins ;)

Good job Wolfie!

I was riding my bike some back in the Spring; but in this daily near-100 degree heat with air quality alerts, I just can't bring myself to get back in the saddle.

Since I'm an early riser, it makes since to ride at the break of light.  I've learned to schedule my evening ride to coincide with moderate temps.  Throughout the day I take several short rides that I really work it and burn the calories.  I've also been riding daily at lunchtime to Wendy's for a salad.

congrats. When you are ready, add some hill work, or do some stair climbing, and the fat should start coming off.

:D getting up that early goes against my religion of geekdom. ROFL
(it's just way too damned early when one doesn't go to bed until 2 or 3 in the AM ;) )
I only do that when I have the hour and half drive down to the Columbia once or twice a month.

but good for you. biking and salads. By the time we meet up in 55 days, you'll be muscle-y, svelte and hot.  ;D

           Sounds like a good idea !

       I just bought two new tubes ( puncture proof )  I'll see about that !

        I put a new BIG  leather seat on my mountain bike .

       The thought of   Seattle coming on so QUICK  has me   thinking of ways to

       become Svelte very fast  :o

Glad to hear the riding is going well, Wolfter. I have been riding my bike more lately while my leg fracture heals.

I wish I had enough of an ass left that I could sit on a bicycle seat without it being incredibly painful. Thanks, zerit. Can't go horse riding either.

I have the same issues that Miss P. mentions and there is nothing funny about any of it.  I cannot sit on any hard surface including concrete, hard chairs or benches.  If I do sit on a hard surface for more than 5 minutes, my legs start to go numb and even my therapist got a chair pad for me to use during our sessions.

After I had wasted down to skin and bones I too had serious trouble sitting on chairs it was really uncomfortable after a short period of time.

I have to stop more often on road trips than I used to . My legs and ass go numb if I don't stop and walk for a bit . My dogs veterinarian office is first come first serve and the seating is old wood church pews , I hate vet days if I forget my cushion .

Oh believe me, I can relate.  If it wasn't for a wallet in one pocket and an iPhone in the other, I wouldn't have any ass at all.

But back to the topic at hand.  I haven't ridden a bike since I owned a 10-speed when I was a teenager and have often thought about buying one for shits and giggles, but I know it would end up being a clothes rack.

I guess I can always ride vicariously through others.

Svelte?....lol ;D Could you not come up with a more gayer idiom?   That's never been a goal before, but I do kinda like it.  I guess it's better than when I used to be called petite.  My goal is never muscles, I prefer the trim look. 

I absolutely had to purchase a different seat since I'm also now amongst the butt challenged.  It's like a comfortable padded seat and is larger than most.  It even has shocks on it.  After my recent surgery "down there", I still wouldn't be on the bike with the original hard ass one that came with it.
