Fitness Over 50 | 14.09 miles | GS29 Turned Over 1000 Miles

in fitness •  last year

My Genesis GS29 turned over 1000 miles today. This 2 year old bicycle I bought at Walmart of $149 dollars has had
-no professional work,
-one set of tires (It needs new ones now)
-still on the original chain
-replaced the stem for $10

I have done a couple of backyard tune ups on my own that has kept it shifting decently (at least as well as my Specialized Sirrus does with profession maintenance).

I am "smarting right now for having to pay so much to keep the Specialized operating, and for being without it so long for this maintenance, but really, my Walmart bicycle is performing just as well (though it clearly has less miles on it.)

I give my YouTube vlogs the main title of "Fitness Over 50." It is my goal to build a community of like minded riders whose purpose is to get and stay active and fit into their senior years. At 59, I see myself as just entering those years. I am not as fit as I would like to be, but neither am I trying to become a superstar athlete. I am becoming more fit all the time with:
-Regular cycling,
-Frequent resistance training and
-Ketogenic/Intermittent Fast eating
are the main elements to my fitnes
s plan.

I recently got a cash back rebate of $130 from Dubli Online Shopping Mall. That makes $1327 back in my bank from online purchases (in 25 months time) I would have made these purchases anyway. Getting this money back is fantastic!
