    Feel free to pick one of the northern ones for a Spark Rally if you want. If I'm not away kayaking that weekend I'll ride with you.

And as far as centuries, I recommend this one:

Southern Tier Aids Ride for Life, Saturday, September 10. Fully supported, includes lunch and dinner. Benefits the
Southern Tier AIDS Program. The ride starts and ends in Ithaca, and follows the Cayuga Scenic Byway around Cayuga Lake. Go
to: http://www.aidsrideforlife.org/ or call (888)206-2870.

Did it last year and had fun. Looks like the Cornell Outing Club might put together a team for it.

And STILL No Bike Ride Yet...!

Monday, March 21, 2011

I was going to ride my bike to our bike repair workshop yesterday...would've been a 50 mile round trip to Hallstead, PA on a gloriously sunshiney day...

BUT: 1st bike emergency of the year (at least it happened at home...lol) no pump for my tires which had grown slack over the winter! My frame pump wasn't working and neither was the floor pump I bought @ Dick's...taking it back and sticking with my bike shop, Chenango Point, for my supplies. Sometimes pinching pennies doesn't pay!

And as it turned out I learned enough at the repair workshop that it was probably for the best that I HADN'T ridden my bike as all those miles I racked up last year had stretched my chain to a limit I wouldn't have wanted to push PLUS there's a possible problem with wheel bearings that need attention.



Although I didn't learn enough to actually DO these things at least I learn enough to know when they need to be DONE! Ounce of prevention and all that...

On Saturday I had fun Spreading the Spark by bringing a fistful of Spark flyers to the Riverwalk Athletic Center. They were fine allowing me to leave them there...on their counter, in the magazine rack, etc.

Then it was off to our local mall where they were having a Health Fair. Unfortunately we did not know about it in advance so we didn't have a table reserved for SparkPeople, but another fistful of flyers were scattered about by yours truly on benches, nestled into the faux shrubbery, etc...lol! I saw a number of folks picking them up and reading...we can hope! :-)

I also had the pleasure of touching base with a couple of our revved and SPARKING members NIKANN7493 & LADYGWEN25!

So no, I DIDN'T pull the covers up over the head and go back to sleep on this snowy, spring Monday morning in March...just really, REALLY wanted to...lol!

Don

ps...and YES bringing my bike in for a "tune-up" today!

    I am glad all the good info from your bike shop kept you safe! I didn't know that about chains, but I've certainly never gotten a frame pump to fill a tire well enough to ride that far.

Sorry about your snow. It's rainy today and going to drop back into the 30s with more snow this week here too. And I must say I am bummed about it!

Nice job spreading the Spark!

Thanks so much for your congrats on my own new bike. So far I'm in love! I couldn't believe Maha got one too! I sure hope she loves it.

    Glad you were safe and didn't ride that bike 50 miles. :) My bike just got her first annual spring tune up (she's 11 months old and was ridden all winter) and I got a valuable lesson in riding on parts that should be replaced.

It was my brakes. Didn't even realize how slow and worn down they'd become till I hit the new ones for a panic stop hardly 2 minutes out of the shop; the rear wheel flew up and I just about went over the handlebars-- whoops, so that's what brakes do? Without me Barney Rubble-ing it the last couple yards? Oh yeah! :)

Enjoy the new spring season on your two wheels and keep Sparking! :)

    It's a good idea to take a bike to the shop for a tune up at least once a year, preferably in the spring. They'll check it over for all kinds of things; tire wear, derailleur adjustment, brake pad alignment and wear, looseness in the crank, the crank bearings, etc. etc.

If you actually use a bicycle enough to commute on it, you need to consider it as a VEHICLE, not a toy.

http://www.bikeleague.o
rg/resources/better/maintenance
.php

In our society so few people use HPVs that our culture does not understand these things.

I was lucky. My big brother (19 years older than me) was an amateur road racer and I spent many happy hours pestering him while he took apart his bike and put it back together on spread out newspapers on the kitchen floor. (He was kind of trapped there working on it and couldn't get away from me. LOL)

And in college I had a boyfriend who loved road cycling and we used to take our bikes down to the local shop where they'd provide tools and workstands and that would be our Saturday night entertainment, taking things off and upgrading them, etc.

(Maybe that explains why I rode you so hard about not even knowing how to fix a rear flat. To me it's a reflex. LOL And yes, pun intended)

Up & At 'Em!

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Well I had a little help from nature which lulled me out of bed to the bathroom @ 4:30 this morning. I had been stewing over how I was going to work in a workout today as I knew once my day got going there was little chance for a workout till late...say 8 pm or so. AND I knew the odds were against me fitting in BOTH my cardio and ST at such a late hour.

So...mulled it over, considered going to the fitness center, but REALLY didn't want to go so early...went back to bed.

Tossed, turned, couldn't sleep if my LIFE depended on it...!

That's it...just gotta get 'er done! Up @ 5 and take care of morning stuff (pellet stove, feeding cats, etc.) to Riverwalk AC by 6, nailed an hour of cardio and 1/2 hour of ST.

Done and ready for my busy day ahead! Whew! Feeling MUCH better! :-)

Don

PS...Had a "DOH!" moment this morning while working out. Saw some folks I thought might be interested in SparkPeople and spoke with them about it. The "DOH!" thought was: WHY HAVEN'T I PUT SOME SPARKPEOPLE FLYERS DOWN HERE AT RIVERWALK AC?!?! #1 on my "to do" list! :-)

I Really Wasn't Sharp Enough To Plan It This Way...

Monday, March 14, 2011

One of the perks of my job is to get out and have fun with my clients 1-2 times a month on Thurs. night. And the perks keep coming as I can then flex that time and take it off some other time. Since I'm having a tough time finding time to get into the fitness center as often as I'd like (you know, like EVERY DAY...lol!) I thought, hey, why not take off Mon. morning and use that time for getting to Riverwalk AC?

It was by accident that this happened ALSO to be the weekend of Daylight Savings which always shakes and discombobulates me for at least a few days!

So sleeping in a bit and having time for a couple hours at Riverwalk...? Mighty fine way to head into the week! I tried the rowing machine today but wasn't too impressed. I couldn't see if there was any way to adjust the resistance. It seemed too easy and didn't seem to give me the bang for the buck I get on either the elliptical or stationary bike. Here's a link to the Concept2 rower they have:

www.concept2.com/us/indoorrowers/def
ault.asp


Spotted one person who went through quite an elaborate stretching routine. Mine isn't anywhere near as thorough but it gets the job done!

Found out today that the Spinning schedule offers more classes than I thought! Tues. & Thurs early mornings AND evenings along with Sat. & Sun. mornings. Have to see if I can work in more spinning and compare instructors as there are three different ones.

Not sure if it's time change hang-over or what, but despite babying myself with an extra nap yesterday and a little sleep in today I'm still feeling pretty low energy and looking to head to bed early tonight.

Make it a Sparkin' week everyone!

Don

    Honestly, one of the big decision makers of me moving to Arizona was because they had no time change. AZ decided that the time change was not necessary and we have been living without it for about 40 years without detriment to any time, space continuum. lol I love it because I too am always extremely affected by the time changes and as a teacher of young children notice how much it affects the children. Hopefully one day the rest of the US will learn that it is okay to not have to change the time twice a year. lol
It Sounds like it worked in your favor this time.

GRACEFULIFE 3/15/2011 9:27PM

    There's no real "resistance" to speak of on a concept 2 rower. The way the machine adjusts is by a set of louvers on the side of the fan at the front. You can open them or close them more, and on the one they sell for home there are numbers near a tab you can move (by hand) to adjust it. It doesn't necessarily make it that much more difficult to execute a pull on the machine; mostly what it does is change how fast the wheel slows after you pull it. This is sort of like a control to adjust how large a boat it feels like you are rowing, though it does make it more work to keep it going at a certain rate when it is on high numbers. But mostly on a rower you adjust the work rate by your stroke rate. I used to use the thing on setting 3 all the time if I recall correctly.

The manual and a quickstart sheet are available online. They call the louver setting thing a "damper" which makes sense because that is exactly what it does (in an engineering sense). It says, "A damper setting of 3-5 will give you the best aerobic workout." Also they say to concentrate on pulling harder to increase work rate rather than stroke rate. I think it's a combination, but whatever.

    Hi Don,
Sounds like a great perk! Couldn't agree more on the Daylight savings time issue :)
Rowing machine/AKA the "ERG"-oh, yes, you can adjust that puppy and it will work your entire body if you get the rhythm right. Actually requires more of your lower body than your upper body. My oldest daughter rowed for UNC and one of those same machines lived in my family room for a while...I couldn't ever pull the wattage that she could and she's 5'8" 128lbs. I think my best was an average of 112 watts for 10 min and I was SPENT.

Saturdays: My Super Spinnin' Sparkin' Spa-Ahh...Day!

Saturday, March 12, 2011

I'm still trying to get a rhythm to my workouts. Mornings just aren't doing it for me...just can't seem to drag my sorry behind outta bed on a regular basis. I experimented this week and managed to slip over to the fitness center (less than a mile from where I work...one of the reasons I signed up there) during my lunch time and had a decent, speedy 30 mins on the elliptical and 30 mins. on the stationary bike. My absolute FAVORITE time to go, however is Saturday mornings.

I kick start things with an hour of Spinning with a friend who is also a social worker running the show. Then I switch to a set of upper body ST. Then 30 mins. elliptical, Another set of upper body ST, 30 mins. on stationary bike, another set of upper body ST, 30 mins. in the swimming pool and then off to the whirlpool and sauna...ah...! Best spent 4 hours of the whole week! :-)

I had the pleasure of being surprised by fellow member NIKKICLINK joining me as we pumped along on our Octane 3700 ellipticals and switched to a set of upper body ST. I had my eye on a fellow who used the rowing machine, which I haven't yet used. He later sat next to me on another stationary bike and when I asked he spoke highly of rowing. Might have to switch up my cardio next time and give it a whirl. Variety...just LOVE variety!

A troubling thing I noticed throughout my morning was the PRECIOUS LITTLE STRETCHING that just WASN'T being done by very many folks. Perhaps the younger college-aged kids can get away with this, but there are many older folks there who just don't seem to bother. I hate to think of the aches and pains and general disservice to their bodies that these people are bringing on themselves!

Time flies and I really hadn't been paying attention until receiving a friendly SparkMail from ZELLAZM, my Class Team Leader from way back in 2007, that my 4th year SparkVersary is drawing near! It's great to take note & celebrate yet another year with our SparkFamily!

Don

ps...I came THIS CLOSE (see that itsy-bitsy space between my thumb and forefinger?!?) to getting out on the road for the 1st time on my bike today. BUT: tires were soft, time was short and just couldn't pump 'em up and go. Daylight savings will be bringing me OH-SO-MUCH-CLOSER to getting ready to resume my commutes to work...woo HOO! :-)

    Rowing is a lot of fun and great exercise! Can be very challenging!

I'm going to bring our bikes into the shop in the next month to have a tune up done on them. It's been 2 years since we rode them! We've only had them for 3 years - but we moved to a house not on the bike trail the year after we bought and rode them. We are definitely getting back into it this year though.

When I went to the gym, I would stretch at the beginning with the exercise balls and balance board, and then again at the end. If I skipped them, it was because I did stretches in the bathroom when I changed because I was too self-conscious to stretch in front of people.

    Over the years, I've fitted in workouts at various times of day depending upon other commitments -- lunch hour, after work, after dinner, before breakfast (an especially quirky bunch of folks turn out at 5:30 a.m. . . . ). Have to say, however, that the weekend workouts are among my faves -- additional time for the whirlpool and the steam room and a leisurely shower are so much appreciated.

Stretching? Essential!!
