Most who have read my blogs in the past know that I ride my recumbent bike for exercise since knee surgery in 2007. My doctor and physical therapist agreed that it was better for me than the treadmill and I think they are right since I do seem to get along better since beginning this exercise.
This morning I decided I could get 30 minutes done with the time I had, so, I got my music going , turned on my table fan and hopped on the bike. After setting up my resistance, etc. I started pedaling, with eyes closed, not looking at my display recordings. When I did get around to looking I had pedaled for 21 minutes and realized my miles were really good for the time. I decided then I could maybe break my record of 6 miles in 30 minutes, so, I began pedaling and clapping hands and sweating to the music. At the end of 30 minutes I made 6.33 miles breaking my recent record of 6.25. Not a large amount, but, I was very happy even with that.
