Yesterday, I took up swimming at my local leisure center. I’m doing it to lose weight after the America trip (I’ve never seen portions so huge!) and also, more importantly, for a swimming event in July I’ll be taking part of. As I write this I’m aching a little from the workout but I think it will hugely benefit my fitness levels. Whilst I’m not a competitive cyclist I like staying healthy and enjoy the feeling when you complete a ride and think “yeah, I did that pretty fast”.
Do you ever do any other exercise that complements your cycling?
