I’ve been searching for a “program” to get started on this fitness by cycling thing. However, I couldn’t find anything online and that surprised me. I emailed someone I know is really into cycling and he gave me a program to get started. So…I started last night with one hour on the bike. I can attest to two things at this point 1. I was unclear about the definition of the word “beginner” when I asked for his suggestions and 2. I fully understand why he said bike shorts are so important. I am starting with one hour, 2-4 times per week. Being the overachiever that I am, I’m going to try the 4 times per week. We shall see. I started with a Trek hybrid bike, which I will use for a few weeks, to see how I like it. I’ll let you know.
For right now, my legs and my behind hurt. No pain, no gain, right? Right???
