I’m undecided once I’ll be cleared to journey on the highway once more, I must first be assured that reoccurrence of my latest extreme vertigo is unlikely, or that there’ll be some type of warning symptom. I believe that should wait till I see an ear specialist on Jan 25. Within the meantime, along with strolling outdoors for enjoyment, I’m trying into methods to make indoor biking extra enjoyable. It’s already an pleasing exercise once I do intervals, however that’s solely a pair days per week (“exhausting leg” day).
I wanted one thing else for straightforward days. The craziest factor I attempted was an Occulus VR headset. I figured I may discover movies of biking in lovely locations I may immerse myself in. That didn’t work as a result of it drove my eyes loopy and gave me a headache, even supposing I’d tried every little thing they prompt to regulate them correctly. I ought to have recognized this is likely to be a difficulty as a result of 3D motion pictures give me a headache too.
Then I acquired a Chromecast so I may play movies on a pill and watch them on my massive television, with my bike wheeled in entrance of it. That works superb. On good days, I also can simply stare on the clouds, the blue sky, and El Toro throughout the way in which, by way of my workplace window.
Lastly, I remembered my very own publish from again in august: “Meditation in Motion- While Not Going Anywhere“. I attempted that right now. I used to be capable of journey for 45 minutes, spinning at a brisk however comfy tempo. Very enjoyable. I used to be amused to search out that this lowest-tech of options seems to be probably the most pleasing.
