I’m blaming Charlotte for me finding yet another way for me to spend my money online. The other day on her blog she posted about a health and fitness magazine she loves, called Experience Life. Checking out the magazine web site I noticed that they had a digital edition and this pointed me to an iPad application called Zinio, essentially an application that lets you purchase and read digital editions of magazines. I purchased the latest issue of Experience Life for just under $2, and a 10 issue  subscription is available for $11.73. I also purchased the latest issue of Popular Photography magazine for under $4.50, and a 12 issue subscription is available for $19.50. Literally hundreds of magazines available across all genres, the majority seeming to be UK and USA magazines. I think I might go check out the cycling mags ….

A 23km ride on the bike tonight, pushing myself a little more than the last few nights to test out the knee, averaged just under 28 km/hr, with only slight discomfort. Then after that a short home workout, mainly stretches, self massage and calf and core exercises.
