Ok wow, what an experience. The bike I have says Ross on the side of it,not sure of the manufacturer. OK this expereince indeed was rough, painful, challenging, and exciting all at the same time. I havent road a bike since I was like 10, and tried to ride one when i was 15 but instantly broke the bike. Im now 23, 6'4.5 and 450 lbs. My goal is to get to 350 (not sure how i should time frame it though) And after that I want to lose even more wieght. Ok my apartment building is on a hill, ,so i started off downhill, and truthfully it was a very wobbly unbalanced ride a first (i remind you its been 13 years) and 2 minutes didnt go by when i started feeling extreme pains on my bottom! (is it possible to get bigger seats?) But being a football player most my life i know how to fight through the pain, and so i did. i decided to ride to my campus which is give or take 10 miles awhile (maybe less) first i noticed my leg started cramping (i tried to stretch a little before i left) but eventually it went away, the most difficult part was the bottom side pain, my butt really felt a lot of pain, legs felt pain (but the good workout pain) but my buttock area felt very sharp stinging pains. i got to my school, rested a little bit and drank water, on the way back it was mostly walking with the bike next to me and riding sometimes, again this was more so because of the butt pain, because my bottom is huge.
I must say this was an excellent work out, and i feel a strong sense of accomplishment, I wanted to stop several times on the way there but refused, walking back from my college was also a great workout, it was a win win situation, i know im going to be sore in the morning, but i love that feeling because its evidence that you worked hard. now i will enjoy a good night rest! PEACE
P.S. im new so tell me if my post was way to lengthy! I'll try to post more pics of me and my bic soon.
