That presents a dilemma -- how to cross train. I despise the stationary bicycle. I really don't want to join a gym or go to a pool (no time, no money, not to mention the whole exercising in public thing). And forget doing aerobics in front of a TV. I feel way too silly and self-conscious, even with the curtains closed.
After spending some time researching online, I've decided to do the following. I'll continue with one long walk each weekend. Right now that's a ten or eleven mile walk at the canal. Eventually, I'll need to replace that with a long run, but for now it can be my cross-training day.
I also need to get back into my weight routine. I love lifting weights, and while my equipment isn't sophisticated, I can do it in the privacy of my basement, which is a huge bonus for me.
Stage two of my training begins!
