Got delivered today, 20 minute beginner ride kicked my ass, literally. Do you ever get used to the seat? Any recommended trainers?

What model?  Are you an experienced rider?  I'm not at all, but am interested in learning more about Peleton.

I just got the entry level one. Didn’t need the moveable screen or the added cost. I’ve never ridden an exercise bike and rarely ride one outside. We’ll see how it goes but the first ride wasn’t bad. I’m trying to make it as convenient as possible for me to exercise so that I actually consistently do something.

Does it come with a mat?  Do you have it in the basement?

It doesn’t come with anything, but if you use a code from someone that has a bike, you get $100 off accessories that can be used for a mat or shoes or a kit that has both. You also need special shoes. We don’t have basements here, and have 2 girls taking up our other rooms (and playroom/ office) so it is in our master bedroom currently. It has a 30 day guarantee so you can’t really go wrong. 

We did buy a heart rate monitor (skosche rythym) which connects to it on screen and will probably order a mat to catch sweat instead of the carpet. 

Edit again, it possibly takes awhile right now so you can always order and then back out. Ours first said May 7th delivery when I ordered in Feb, but I spoke on chat with them 2 separate times to get it moved up more each time.

Thanks for the info. Post about how it's going from time to time.

I'm starting back on weights next week. I had a busy month in the fall and opted to take a month off to recharge. Then at the end of that month found my cancer and entered a month of stress and doctors' appointments. Then had surgery and had to take 4 weeks off for recovery, and have been skiing three days a week since late January without much time for anything else. I've lost 20 pounds of mass during that time.

I'm looking forward to the soreness that comes with the first few weeks of getting back into the routine. I'll have to go slower than usual because my incision location puts me at high risk for hernia... will likely insert much more focused abdominal work off the bat than I ever have before.

^ Appreciate it! Got my 3-month scans back clean two weeks ago. Still about a 16% chance of recurrence but it’s dropping every day.
