HGH & FMS Experiment

Where Human Growth Hormone Meets Fibromyalgia

I’ve always wanted a recumbent bike; yesterday I finally got one (identical to the one pictured, though mine is red) and today I took it our for a spin. This is a big deal to me: I haven’t been able to ride a bike in a good 10-12 years. Upright bikes kill my knees and my back; I can stay on one for about 5 minutes tops, and then pay for it in pain for the next week. I rode this one today for about 35-40 minutes—over an extremely hilly bike path—and it doesn’t feel like I’ll be suffering much for it tomorrow. My quads might ache a bit, but only from typical post exertional pain.

Now I know the fact that it’s a ’bent bike makes a huge difference, but I don’t know how much of my ability to handle it is from increased endurance from swimming or the growth hormone, or a combination. All I know is it’s damned fun!
