Been using a Kaiser spin bike, but whenever I bike, I have knee pain during the session. Tried to adjust the seat here and there, while fixing the biomechanics of cycling, but still no Bueno. Thinking of asking the bike shop about what might be happening when I go window shopping this weekend. What I’ve been using as ‘training’ resources are GDN cycling videos on Youtube. It is incredibly annoying when commercials come on every 10 mins. Talk about a mood killer.

It was a bad start. My co-worker brought my weakness to work, pastries, for two straight days. Then, she proceeded to put it on the shelf in front of my desk. I think the next time this happens, I need to reflect on how seriously I am taking this journey. Something more actionable would be simply to move away from my desk. Been really trying to incorporate a healthy breakfast to kick start the day, oatmeal and banana is my new favourite.
