Schwinn to win

The above is our new recumbent exercise bike (a Schwinn – hence the joke!) – another attempt by me to keep fit without putting too much stress on my foot.

R gets an allowance from his employers each month to pay for fitness related things – so this will be going towards paying for it.

We’ve put it in the gym where the bed I was using as an exercise bench used to be – it did not prove to be any more successful as a bench than it was as a bed and for the same reason – the slats on it dig into your back.

So I cycled 15 minutes yesterday and 17 today – I am going to build it up gradually. I did manage to get my heart rate up to 140 which I haven’t managed for ages.
