Feeling fitter πŸ˜†

Well my running may be suffering due to the heat but I am definitely getting fitter! I just cycled 31.4 KM - cycling some how seems easier - there is a breeze but although you clearly work your legs I don't get out of breath like I do when running and my heart rate doesn't go up even though we went fast! My partner was knackered (and he goes to the gym!) but I was ok! J think running must be a better all round fitness exercise πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸš΄β€β™€οΈ πŸ˜†

I love cycling but oh how my lady bits suffer! I have padded cycle shorts and a padded seat but it’s still very sore!! 😯

Can not recommend Mavic padded shorts enough, even though they cost almost as much as my bike it was money well spent! You have to toughen your backside up to It gradually my resident MAMIL tells me

Awww thank you! I feel fab! Mike is fast asleep on the settee and I’m just gett8ng on with stuff - I keep thinking did I really do that! I do think running is a lot tougher though and I still have a long way to go on that score! πŸ˜ƒ
