I was going to go on the bike, but I thought I’d give the elliptical a try today. A lot of people use them. I’ve heard they are supposed to be easy on the joints, but it wasn’t easy on my arthritic ankle. I stopped after 7 minutes because it was starting to get too uncomfortable. If I wanted pain, I’d go lift weights. Oh, right. I did.
I’ll stick with the bike for weight lifting days.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 4 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
