Week 10 and a stationary bike question

This week was full of the trouble and tribulation but that seems to be the norm around here :) The boy was poorly, I had a sinus infection... So I only exercised twice, failed the S&F challenge entirely and ate pizza on Friday!

But luckily I might have just eaten healthily enough the rest of the week to have a 0.5kg loss, down to 88kgs. Absolutely over the moon with that. Can't remember how many years since I saw those figures on the scales.

This week started well, a weights full body workout yesterday and either a run or a cycle today, depending on babysitting.

I have just been handed down a stationary bike, any ideas on how to use it most effectively? And how to combine it with running without making my legs drop off :)

Well done for the weight loss. This is the proof that one bad day will not turn into a bad week if the rest of the week is controlled. Your hard work paid off!

My cyclist friend assures me that it is about repetition not how hard it is to press the pedals if you are with me?? So I just go round and round (and round) as fast as I can !!! I used to count (30, then 50 etc . . . ) I now can do almost 5 minutes fast, 5 slow and repeat. Hope that's helpful?

Ps remember to warm up and stretch after, but you probably know that!
