Hi Gabrielle and other excercisers!! I thought it might be good to post again on this thread started by Kit (LadyKitUSA), after it has been dormant for quite a while.

What gave me the idea to do so was a message from Gabrielle on a different thread: [QUOTE] [COLOR=”Blue”]I am still biking, although less than I would like, but at least it is something! I think i have done 1200 miles on the bike, but a lot of that was in the beginning, and some of it was being pulled by my friend when I pooped out!!! Talk about lazy …Gabrielle[/COLOR][/QUOTE]

Gabrielle, that is amazing. 1200 miles on a bicycle. I went on a bike trip in September and we did about 300 miles which seemed like a lot. Cycling is fairly new to me but it is a really enjoyable sport. The only problem is the impossibility of feeling comfortable on a bicycle seat for that length of time!!

Things have been improving this year – I’ve been able to do about 180 km running so far and I’ve averaged about 2-1/2 days a week of exercises. That should be 3 days a week minimum, so there is room for improvement. Also, I have to shed a few pounds that I’ve gained in recent years.

Anyway, winter is coming and it will be harder to get out and stay fit…so we need to encourage each other to keep up the fitness efforts.

Welcome any success stories and advice.
Stay active – stay fit. 😉
