I woke up to 33 degree temperatures today – Fahrenheit, not Celsius. At this point, I think I have to accept that the time of going for walks outside had passed. I mean, sure. I can bundle upend I don’t mind feeling a little cold. But I see no reason to subject myself to discomfort while subjecting myself to discomfort. So, despite a lack of enthusiasm, I am turning to the complex workout room and the following machines:
A skiing machine:
And a reclining bike:
Not pictured here is the plain old exercise bike that would have been behind me in that last picture.
I’ve remarked before that treadmills are boring. So, in order to mix things up, I’m gonna by to rotate through those machines. Today I did 1 kilometer on the skiing machine (about 10 minutes) and 3.34 km on the bike (15 my mutes). Sadly, my FitBit doesn’t register the steps from the bike, so it thinks I’ve traveled 0.77 miles so far today.
Anyway, my current thinking is that each day I’ll do something like 15 to 20 minutes on one machine and then 15 to 20 minutes on the next. I’ll also need to keep stepping up the resistance level on that bike, until I feel like I’m getting a workout. Also, any day that involves the bike, I’ll need to plan to do more walking so that my FitBit shows I’ve hit goal.
