New bike means new exercise possibilities!
Saturday, March 23, 2013
Some of you may know that I am off the running trail due to a stress fracture in my pelvis. I have been an old gloomy gus about this as it is very hard to get good cardio without running, walking or otherwise standing on the large lower muscles. I tried out a friend's three-wheel bike and loved it, so I went to a bike shop to see about them.
Fortunately, it was a good shop where they actually try to ascertain your needs rather than just selling you something. Sebastian pointed out the new 'feet forward' bikes where you sit on a larger, more comfortable seat and you are not putting pressure on the pelvis to peddle.
I've been for a couple of rides and I am over the moon to come home with my lungs having really worked for the first time in over a month! Yay!
