Working out

So I’d gotten to the point where I can do a half-hour on the exercise bike at the lowest setting. Today I decided to step up the incline, and I lasted all of five minutes. Now I’m moving into the hard part, but I really like it.

More importantly, I’m finally at the point where I can go down steps or spring out of my chair without holding onto anything, because my knees actually work now. It’s quite a thrill after three years of feeling ancient. I’m really liking this exercise stuff, and I never thought I would.

  1. “spring out of my chair…” Watch it. Even people in great health don’t spring out of their chairs. What do they call that “irrational exuberance?” Slow and steady wins the race.

  2. Great! Now less whining? people get older (ceptin’ myself) Aches and pains and thyroid conditions ensue. Dr’s play prescription roulette ’cause some work on somes; others not so much. Getting away from a keyboard helps relieve my neck pain. PEACE

    Plus, frack the polar bears, et al; they helped sprain my irony bone.

  3. that sounds like me and running. I never thought I’d like it as much as I do.

  4. I have to admire the passive-aggressive skills of someone who tells me I’m whining and then says “PEACE.” LOL If you don’t like what I write, don’t read it!
