The Enemy

   Posted by: John

So I have been going to the torture chamber with Crystal every morning this week.  I have discovered that I can’t walk the track that well.  I keep getting shin splints.  This is a new experience for me, since I have never had shin splints before. 

Fortunately, this YMCA has a ton of exercise equipment, lots of options.  So, I decided yesterday to try something different.  This thing.

Looks harmless enough, doesn’t it?  However…it will turn you into jelly!  At least I don’t get shin splints from it.  There’s nothing to exercise the upper body on this contraption, but it will get your heart pumping.  The thing that cracks me up is the TV monitor.  The Y has cable TV connected up to them so you have your pick of 50+ channels of nothing to watch while you pedal your butt into the ground.

Actually, I think it is going to me some good.
