Thanks for the great support regarding my run last night (really a walk/jog). It was a good workout and surprisingly more enjoyable and even easier than I thought it would be. I did add it to my week, because I feel I got as much of an aerobic workout as I did on longer rides.
Today (Tues), I worked out in the evening by riding 15 miles on my trainer. For those of you who aren't too familiar with cycling, a trainer is basically a small stand (which my kids call the Cyclops), that turns my bike (which Neighbor Ted calls the HUCC-B), into a stationary bike.
That seems so crazy! My "inexpensive" bike ($600) + the Cycle Ops 2 trainer ($225) = the same type of fitness machine that my grandma used in the 1970's.
This is why the terrorists hate us! I've spent a lot of money in order to pretend to ride a bike indoors, because it's kinda cold outside and I like to watch tv when I am pretending to ride a bike.
But I turned those pedals and sweated up a storm tonight.
Mark it, Dude.
P.S. For those of you who read about my friend, Doug, I have a great update! His surgery was last week and he received definitive results that he is entirely cancer-free now! I saw him today and he now just has to recover from an 8" chest incision (actually on three different tissue levels), so he'll be back at work in a week or two. Chances of recurrence are high, but now that they know what to look for, they can spot this type of cancer quickly and kill it again. God is good (and so is the Mayo Clinic).
