Recumbent bike as reward.

Posted Mar 11 2009 3:57pm
I have found that I really enjoy the recumbent bike! Never used one before, but I do so love my outdoor biking in warmer weather. I am not as big a fan of the stationary bike. However, the recumbent is nice because it gives back support.

I was feeling a little tired today at the Y, which was just cardio today. I was going to do 30 minutes of jogging, but I just wasn't feeling it since I did a hard lower body workout yesterday. One of those times where I actually listened to my body. So I told myself that if I jogged for just 15 minutes and walked for 15, then I could ride the recumbent bike. Like it was my reward! LOL!

I also have renamed it. The upright stationary bike works mostly your quadriceps. The recumbent works the glutes because of the configuration. So I now call it the recum butt bike!
I'll be on it again tomorrow!
