Ok, did 5 mins this morning on the exercise bike, at varying resistance levels. It felt better, and I even played with the resistance settings to see what it goes up to…it goes up to 20, so 5 is 25% of maximum. 20 wasn’t ‘stand on the peddles’ hard though, so it hardly reflects the resistance I will encounter when my bike finally arrives in the post….I recon it’s gonna be a shock!
Went out this afternoon to Decathlon in Angouleme for some road cycling shoes and a tyre pump! Picked up some Shimano R087s, very nice fit, and a Clever 7000 garage pump. So at least I have the minimum amount of gear I need to actualy ride the thing when it arrives!
I plan on doing a 15 minute session shortly……then hope to be nearly back to 3x30minute rides tommorrow!
Been watching my calories today, I have not been restricting myself over this first week of exercise food wise nor drink wise, but have been reasonably sensible. Today I ate an oat so simple with 4 sugar cubes for breakfast, and a Big Mac and about 10 fries for lunch so far. Four mugs of tea with 3 sugar cubes and a latte at maccy dees with 2 cubes of sugar.
