30 in 30 challenge — april 2014 midmonth update

15th

15 days. 15 tasks done. I set the challenge knowing that I will be on vacation for part of it, with tasks generic enough to complete wherever I was. I don’t think it affected the quality of the challenge.

30in30 #6: bike 30mins

Task #6 in 30 in 30 is to run/walk/bike for 30 mins.

Continuing the “back to exercise” and “slowly letting the knee heal” themes, I did 30mins on mum’s stationary bike. The gears had come loose earlier but they recovered all on their own and I can go back to adjusting the tension. The electronics are still kaput so I continue to use the 1 mile per 5 minute estimate.

I’ll get back to running soon, I promise.
