For years, I used a standard exercise bike in my home. However, as the years passed, the seat became more and more uncomfortable (notice it had NOTHING to do with my derriere changing – just the bike seat became more uncomfortable!). In addition, my aging back began to complain about the forward leaning position. While visiting a bicycle shop, I tried out a recumbent tricycle (oh yes, we DO go in full circles in life… back to a tricycle!).
5k, 10k, marathon, triathlon, oh my! It’s getting to be that time of year again when everyone seems to be using an athletic event to raise money or encourage fitness. This year I plan to challenge myself with a few races, including a triathlon. People may think I am crazy for committing to training for a race that includes swimming, biking, and running, but I like to think I am up for the challenge. I have armed myself with books on how to train and prepare for a triathlon. All from my local library! Challenge yourself this year and make a goal of trying something new with your fitness.
