In the past week
Do some leg exercises on the days you’re not cycling too, but don’t forget to also have rest days. You’ll build strength faster if you give your muscles recovery time. It feels like you’re doing nothing and wasting time, but you really will do better by giving your muscles time to heal up those microtears and build strength.
Maybe not for the first while. Even if you track just during weekdays or something like that, it makes a big difference. Find an app that is really fast and easy for tracking and use that. make it as simple as possible. It helps.
Thanks so much. I don’t know why Im so nervous about it. I’ve just always taken it in to be serviced but it seems like such an avoidable expense at the moment if I can do it myself. I’ll start watching some videos and see how it goes. Thanks again!
It’s not good for you if you already have joint injuries like if you have bad knees, but it’s definitely a workout upgrade if you want to boost your challenge. I tend to think of it as better for walking as a workout. Running puts you at more of a risk of twisting something. You’d need to be quite fit and in good shape to run on one of those…[Read more]

So glad to hear it! Keep up the good work. I hope you’ll check in to let us know how you’re progressing.
Thanks everyone! I did end up getting some really great boots and on sale too because it’s not early in the season anymore. I also got crampons for when it’s really awful out…but oh boy don’t step down onto the pavement with them! Only use them where there is snow and ice or they get really slippery!

That’s not really a long time for exercise to have a difference of that kind. Maybe give it more time. plus, exercise is more for preventing weight gain than causing weight loss. You could even find that while you’re burning fat, you’re building muscle, so it’s balancing out and you’re just not seeing it on the scale. Don’t give up. It’s doing something.
I feel that they really work. There are some good products and not very good ones. It’s important to use the right one and to use it safely and appropriately. But if you get SAD, they can make a serious difference.
Thanks! I’ll look into Pajar. I’ve read about Columbia but they seem to have mixed reviews other than they’re really comfortable. I’ve seen a few brands like Sorel have flip out or flip down spikes for ice. Has anyone tried them? Is it a gimmick or are they good?
I’m planning to walk a lot this winter for my exercise. I don’t want to slip and fall and hurt myself. So many boots look great but are slippery, especially women’s boots! Any recommendations for great ones on ice? I don’t mind if they’re not cute.
Same ones you’d like for weight loss. They don’t choose what your result will be. You do. So if you’re using FENFAST 375 for supporting weight loss on a usual month, use it to support you to stop the gain during December.
It’s one of many things we should be aware of. Grip strength decreases over time. If you want to maintain yours, you can do a few grip strength exercises. It also makes it easier to hold on to heavier equipment if you’re using that sort of thing.
