The Price of Excercise


Hay wants me to do some exercise. Having watched some TV program about 4 minutes of really hard exercise a week on an exercise bike being enough, I thought I'd get one.

Went on eBay and put in a bid on a tatty old exercise bike having some rust, but local. Thought I'd go as high as £10, thinking I was in with a good chance. Well, a bidding frenzy ensued - bloody thing went for £196. The buggers went berserk and paid well over the odds! This is it:


Hay then went on Amazon and got a brand new cross-trainer / exercise bike for £75. 


Which would you rather have? The only problem is that it comes in bits and I have to mantle it first.

Got it wrong yesterday about the 1,000th post. Yesterday was the 1,000th, not today's.

I hear the Scottish government is to hold a competition to name the new Forth crossing. The Fith crossing?

  1. CB, sounds like a bargain, but where do you stand on the thorny issue of men's shorts? ... cotton or Lycra?

    Your audience demands to know, with photos ;)

      I know a plethora of ways in which to avoid exercise.
