wooooo woooooo!! New Bike

wooooo woooooo!! New Bike

after a torrid time using and old exercise bike, which i might add had a masochistic saddle and after a couple of miles of frantic peddelling around my imaginery countryside, it would turn any self-respecting Gerrard into a Geraldine!!!

Seeing my broken aching body, entering the room with a strange wiggle, my wife agreed to me getting a new steed - i purchased a new bike from ebay and have now spent the last couple of nights building up my mileage. Im now on a minimum mileage of 10 miles per night. im feeling fitter, im hopefully losing weight but my lungs and the muscles in my back, burn a little bit.

So if your able 'Get On Your Bike' and feel the difference!

P.S my wiggle is getting better.

Well done Muckster, you've got more energy than me - go for it.

Could this be another gold medal for team GB when we get to Rio !!!

Take care

Auntymary xx

Glad to hear your wiggle is on the mend, but keep applying the cream to be on the safe side ;)

Ah elian, i don't think that a backside / cream and bicycle saddle are a good combination - try explaining that to the Doc's and nurse's in A&E !!!

Well done Wiggler!

You can go off people. I can't cycle 1 yard let alone 1 mile and theres nowt wrong with me!!!!! You put me to shame, you should be proud of yourself.

Keep it up!!

awwww xxxx

fab!! well done you :)

ty Mrs S, and how's you, are the courses going well ???

sorry haven't replied (sooo rude!!) I'm fighting a chest infection at the mo and this is the first time I've felt up to bloggin! the courses start nextw eek...they all written up so just crossing fingers I'll be well enough to teach them!! :-)

Hi Mrs S, hope this note finds you on the mend and feeling better. i know how you feel, im a training officer, so giving presentations is a nightmare, i sound like mickey mouse at the end lol.

Have you every using the narration, in powerpoint - that might help you out if your not feeling to good, or is that not suitable for your type of courses.

I might have a go at it and see if i can get it to work - what type of courses do you run?????

i teach textiles so mainly its hands on and one to one...I use powerpoint but as I teach adult ed I find the shorter the presentations the better!! this week is induction week which is very "talky" so don't know how that will go....still, before being diagnosed in feb I was also teaching least I don't need to do that nay more...i still have one dance class but we run it as a collective, I only go when I'm well enough and just teach and encourage from the sidelines...drives me nuts..I used to dance 12hrs a week!!

Hey I too got a bike in home,and pedal lots keep it in my bedroom so every time I go in, I jump on me bike and swwwwwwwwwishhhhhhhhh away I go, windows open radio turned up, its wonderful feeling!!!!!! then gulp gulp, haaaaa xxxxxx

Bonny put some music on, and pedal to the beat, makes it much easier, and time goes quicker, just don't try it to heavy rock music lol
