At Least I Can Watch Bikes

My hand is healing pretty well.  But I still have to leave most of the work to my right hand.  It’s just in the most awkward place ever.  Every single move pulls on the stitches (baaaaaaarf!)

We’ve been doing 90 minutes on the stationary bike on the weekends but that was not an option for me.  I can’t hold on to the handles at all.

While Brad was cycling I hit the treadmill.  For the first 45 minutes I alternated running and walking.  The next 45 was all incline.  What are the upper muscles in my butt?  Because those were on fire during the incline part of my workout.

I’ll be on the treadmill for the rest of the week along with some abdominal and leg exercises that I can do without holding any weights.

If I couldn’t ride bikes on the weekend at least I could watch bikes.  The Ride for Heart very generously sent me a pair of tickets to check out the Toronto International Bike Show.

The Bike Show had a bunch of vendors selling bikes that are far more fancy than ours.  But we liked looking at how slick and cool they were.

The best part was watching the BMX tricks competition.  There were competitors from Japan, Czech Republic, USA, and Canada.

It was awesome to watch their tricks, the pictures don’t do it justice.

Not only do I want to get back on MY bike, I want to buy one of these bikes too ;) .

    So glad you’re hand is on the mend!

    I smiled when you said ‘bike tricks NOT by me’ as my daughter is young enough not matter what we do (bikes rollerskating hooping…) she really expects I wiwll possess trics skills.

    She’s always disappointed ;-)

  2. HEAL FAST!!!!

    Good for you for getting on the treadmill. I know the ‘mill sucks sometimes hehe.

  3. Stitches suck. How do you wash your hair?

    You won’t regret adding incline when you’re on the treadmill. Hills have done some amazing things for my butt. Im telling you, it wasn’t even this nice when I was in high school.

      I’m hoping the cycling also gives me a nice butt

      the answer to your hair question – not very well, not very well at all, especially since my hair is almost down to my un-toned butt … I tried myself and it took a long time … but Brad did it last night thank goodness

  4. Hope your hand gets better soon so you can get back in the saddle!

      baaaaahahaha “the saddle” makes me giggle … yes I giggle in spin class when the instructor says it :P

    That’s your glute med (gluteus medius). Try Pilates moves, it’s an important muscle so get on it!

    • Morgan @ Life After Bagels says:

      ooooh thanks for identifying the muscle … and I’m just getting into pilates lately – guess I’ll have to continue!
