What have I done ?????

OMG, I saw a rowing machine on a second hand site so I bought it (just like that !) Ordered it not thinking where I was going to put it. Its sitting in my very small living room next to the exercise bike that I never use !!! I have got problems with my knees and back. Goodness knows what state I will be in once I have tried it. It has a book and dvd with it. Fat lot of good it will do me lol. You can do so much with it so many different ways of using it. Trouble is I have no dvd player, and I am scared stiff of it. Well wish me luck folks cause I'm gonna need it. Word of warning NEVER go on these sites when you have a bad chest and temperature, you never know what you will end up with !!!! x

You could always go back and look for a cheap outboard motor

When I went to stay with my daughter in Dubai, she had one. Nobody seemed to use but it was really good to hang my clothes on.

I'm with annie on this one - probably because my exercise bike has a pile of post on the saddle and two carrier bags hanging from the handles :)

Well yes thats the problem, unused exercise bike sitting next to the new rowing equipment. Whoops ! Time will tell.

I'm safe. I don't do gym work. Walking is my limit. And every gal should know her limit! Strange contraptions I leave to Ikea :) x x

Do what I did, move it outside in the summer (so you can exercise in the lovely fresh air) - then four years later it will be all but disintegrated having never given it another thought.

Well I did get on the thing earlier, started rowing, took one look at the dogs face and went into hysterics, and the more he looked at me the more I laughed, but I did keep rowing even though I was coughing up a storm and tears were rolling down my face. Good start I thought, so after 5 mins., hard work had a lettuce and salad cream sandwich a lollypop and a stiff drink. Sat down and had a quick peruse through booklet. OK righto supposed to do warm up and warm down exercises first. Ah so thats why I hurt in lots of places. Tomorrow is another day, will give it another go. Just won't look at the daft dog. x

My cat used to try and catch my feet when I pedalled the bike, bare feet not a good option on reflection.
