Well, sometimes getting to the gym is not the easiest task. We've had quite a bit of snow lately, and there is something intimidating about walking with a knee scooter, that doesn't have snow tires, to get in a car or to walk into the gym when there is snow on the ground. I was talking to a friend about this, and she suggested setting up my bike on a trainer and biking one-legged in my house. I thought it was a brilliant idea.
I had to borrow her trainer; luckily she doesn't need it right now. Getting on an off the bike took quite a bit of figuring out. I still can't put any weight on my right, surgical foot. This is where the knee scooter came in handy. I hung onto it while I swung my leg over, then my husband moved it to the other side, so I could rest my foot on the seat while I biked.
If you haven't tried biking with one leg, you should give it a shot, it is quite a work-out. I rode for 10 minutes yesterday, and today I made 15 minutes. My goal is to add more minutes later on in the day, so I can gradually increase the day's total to 60 minutes.
