Spinning away

After the disaster with the cross trainer, for my last 2 gym sessions I’ve been on the exercise bike, practically no resistance, but trying to keep rpm over 100. I’ve done 10 miles in 30 mins twice now and not noticed any new complaints from the piriformis (it still hurts, but certainly no worse).  At least I can raise a sweat this way!  This mornings session was hard, mainly because of the 5.30am start!

I’ve also started keeping a food diary as I’ve piled on a few pounds over Christmas. This didn’t happen when I was doing 12 mile runs last year!  It’s a bit of a pain adding up your own recipes, even though the app I’m using (my fitness pal) is very good. It’s also enlightening how small the ‘portion’ sizes are that are listed on the size of packets.
