So as a way to get back in shape and stay there I joined the Bucks County Y and found an awesome piece of equipment - the Expresso Bike. This stationary bike puts the boring ones to shame. Complete with a big screen monitor the rider is actively steering the bike on...
So it's in the single digits outside with negative wind chills. So clearly I'm not going out to ride. But I need to exercise. I tried the fitness videos. Man I'm not coordinated off my bike. So I decided to try Zwift. It's a computer program that you use in...
Image Credit: Image captured from the live stream broadcast. What a race. The Tour de France has been an annual tour since 1903. Plagued in the past with doping the tour is one helluva cycling event. Not an excuse for cheating, via doping, but I can see why some...
Caption: Tour de France Stage 11 - Screenshot from NBCSports Feed So I've been cycling as much as possible lately. Ever since my primary doctor said I need to lose 30 lbs and 6 by my next visit (3 months from my last appointment), I've been enjoying getting out and...
So I'm back on the bike. It's been 2 years since I've seriously rode. I have to admit it wasn't for any particular reason other than being lazy and life getting busy. What got me back in the cycling game was a talk with my primary doctor about my Type 2 Diabetes. My...
Saturday I was honored to be able to participate in the 25th Annual Tour de Cure, Philly edition. The event took place at Temple University's Ambler campus and the turnout was fantastic. Originally I was aiming to do the longer 35 mile ride, which would go from Ambler...
So... I finally got back on the trainer again yesterday. I did 4 miles and called it quits. It's so boring and dull. I watched a podcast, but still got bored. Suggestions? -Seth
So I actually got back on the trainer today after a two week or so break. Man, I hate that thing. It's a torture device, but I know that if I keep at it during the cold months it'll pay off in the warm ones.
So I haven't been on the trainer in weeks. I really need to get back on it asap, I'm getting fat. I know I have to eat right as well, but exercise is important. Just have to find the time to get all sweaty. Haha.
I thought I'd give getting up early and jumping on the trainer a try. Ugh, that sucked. It sure is hard getting up at 6:20 am and going down on the trainer to start your day. I could only eek out 2 miles before having enough. I guess that's better than nothing.
