Well, it’s really only round #1 in my case since I forgot to post updates last time ’round!
But I’m sure my
mug loyal readers will keep me on my toes.
My challenge is to get in 30 minutes a day on my new toy.
Why have I bought an exercise bike when I have glorious beaches just a few minutes away? Well, when the wet season sets in there’s not much walking. Also, I hate the summer heat. But I’ll walk, and swim, whenever I can and do at least 30 minutes a day on the Toy.
Why? I hear you ask. Because I do not want to become one of those sad old gits who spend more time in McDonalds than out in the fresh air. I have neither the purse nor inclination to join a gym * so this will be one way to keep my creaking old limbs moving. Years of playing hockey and tennis and skating have left me with one or two twinge-y bits. And also because there’s a supportive blog where those who accepted or imposed a challenge can keep up with each other.
Now, I have a date with some very sharp blades and a block of wood…
* I knew some middle-aged women who joined a keep-fit class and called them selves “The Titswobble Trainers.”
