I started the program…it hurts.

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???

    Best of luck! For me, cycling is the way to go. It’s a low-impact workout that burns calories like mad. You’ll definitely want to invest in some shorts! Don’t worry, the butt pain subsides with a few more rides and a proper set of shorts. Keep at it and I’m pretty sure you’ll like it A LOT!

    • When I was younger, I rode all summer long, everywhere I could go in the suburbs of Detroit. Four kids later, I never seemed to find the time to do things like this. But, I’m making it a priority. I’m holding on to that thought that I will enjoy it a lot again, after the pain wears off. 😉
