Greetings from Austria in the heart of Europe! My name is Mario and I‘m a long distance runner. A few weeks ago I experienced some knee problems and decided to pause running for a while. All of a sudden I had a lot of extra time and no plan what to do. Then I found my kids’ old unicycle in the garden shed and started riding it. That was a week ago. I don’t know how many times I fell down or drove into the bushes since then. I never tried to hold on anywhere.
Today I rode 2km on meadow and gravel, and I can now mount freely with both legs well.
My problem at the moment is that I’m as exhausted after a few 100m of riding as I am after a sprint in running.
How have you guys been doing with it? Does it get better, or is it just insanely exhausting to ride a unicycle?
