Stationary Cycle Day 

April 8, 02015

The new stationary bike arrived yesterday via UPS, nearly one hundred pounds of steel and fitness fun packed into a cardboard box. The last exercise machine we owned was a mediocre treadmill which ultimately led to me taking up outdoor running instead. I assembled my new toy, set it up in one corner of my recently reorganized office, and took it for a short fifteen minute trial run (right before an actual running run) to some pedal-wise success. The result: either I’m not in spin-shape or indoor cycling is a bit more intense than running. After fifteen minutes I was dripping in sweat. Literally. This is going to be interesting. I’ll be tracking my x-training on Strava, so follow me there if you really care about that.
