I’m by no means a fitness expert. I’m not a foodie either. I’m overweight and my back, knees and ankles hurt a lot. My job has me sitting in a chair for eight hours a day. What I do love is biking. I try to ride thirty minutes a day with the family. We try to stay at the community pool for an hour a week. I (sometimes) walk the dogs with my wife. Before my injury, (can you believe its been over a year?) I would average about 15 miles a month hiking and rock climbing. (My wife would routinely do 30 miles a month. She still averages ten miles a day between walking and biking.) Anyway, I encourage you all, but especially those overweight, to get biking. All the major U.S. retailers are discounting their bicycles because for them, the summer retail period is almost over. I’m still 50 pounds overweight with bad knees and back. I can do it, you can to.
