I am tracking my plans for 2019 as I take part.
Or jotting is more accurate.
For today’s instalment, it’s my
that is front and centre.
I can also write from a stream of consciousness POV about my thoughts on how I hate working out, but I do need to build up my strength.
The blowing snow today is the kind of wintery wonderland I love to see, as part of why living in Canada is a beautiful thing. As far as exercise goes, I am indoors and on my exercise bike. It is an old one that I started riding back when it sat in my oma’s furnace room, along with the fruit cellar I used to go into to get a can of Coke. As a kid, maybe some sugar gave me more energy to ride that bike, but now I stick to soda water.
I am in definite need of a new seat for the thing though. I rode for about 10-15 minutes the other day and I got up to 35 today, but my arms have been sore all day and they stretch a little too far to reach to hold onto the handle bars and my butt is so sore, it is painful to get off the bike when I’m done. The knitted seat cover has its charm and it came from my oma, but maybe there’s something more comfortable out there, even fit for this old thing.
I can’t say I like sweating, but I know I need to break into one to be getting some benefit. Although, there is something refreshing about getting of the bike and feeling the cooling all over my skin that the process causes.
But back to why I speak of needing my TV. I have music channels on there that I crank up, with my speakers out here, and I focus on the steady roar of the bike and the sound of those songs that keep me moving my legs in one continuous motion.
One thought on “One Continuous Motion and the Cooling #JusJoJan #SoCS”
They do have some really comfortable bicycle seat covers that are adjustable and filled with gel. Maybe your oma’s knitted cover could even fit on top of it? There’s something so satisfying about exercising after you’re done. I need to be better about it this year.
