How to Exercise on a Trip to India
Tuesday, April 13, 2010      2 comments

1. Since I have to be to the airport early but will most likely get through with plenty of time to spare, I will walk around the airport as fast as I can with my 40 lb backpack on for as long as I can. 2. Ditto when I'm in Paris for three ... Read more
Final Ride before Going to India
Monday, April 12, 2010      2 comments

Well, today I will take an "leave it all on the field" kind of bike ride because tomorrow I head to India for one month. I won't be able to ride while I'm there but hopefully I'll be able to keep in shape! I will have access to the interne... Read more
Leaving for India in Two Days
Sunday, April 11, 2010      1 comments

Lord willing, two days from now I'll be departing for India where I will spend one month. I'm not looking forward to the immense heat, but I am looking forward to dropping some weight with the vegetable laden diet. I'm going to try to blog and s... Read more
Little Sore but Feeling Good

I took my first longer bike ride yesterday, about 60 miles. I had taken 30 and 40 mile rides in weeks past but that extra 20 miles does matter at this time of year! Later it will seem like nothing, for now it was a bit challenging. I came ... Read more
Endurance Ride Today
Friday, April 09, 2010      1 comments

So far this year the longest ride I've done was 40 miles. Today I plan to take that up to 60. It should take about 3.5 hours, I hope to come in at 16.5-17.0 mph average but we shall see. It's a bit early in the year for me to ride that fast for ... Read more

Today I took a 28-mile ride that included 7 climbs of various lengths and difficulties. I stayed in the saddle 98% of the time and tried to push as hard as I could. I came in at 16.2 mph which is great for me on a course that like at this time o... Read more
Condition: Buttocks di Saurass
Tuesday, April 06, 2010      1 comments

I normally ramp my riding up slowly in the beginning of the year, mostly to let my backside catch up to my passion for riding! But since I'm going to India for one month (one week from today) I've been putting in lots of extra miles. This ... Read more
Rest Day Today
Monday, April 05, 2010      0 comments

It's a perfect day for riding but I'm going to have to take a day off today! My body needs to recover from pushing the pace a bit this week and putting in more miles than I have in a while--96 miles, to be exact, which is not much for some but q... Read more
Easy Spin Today
Sunday, April 04, 2010      0 comments

Yesterday I pushed the pace a bit and so today I took an easy spin with my wife. We went about 22 miles at 13.8 mph: just what the doctor ordered. I'm going to try to get 100-150 miles in this week before I leave for India for one month, but we ... Read more
Not Feeling Well Today
Saturday, April 03, 2010      0 comments

For whatever reason I woke up feeling out of sorts and a little nauseated. Don't really know what's up but I'll take a little something and hope for the best. I was planning to take a bike ride later today, I may have to walk instead. We'll see.... Read more
Another Easy Spin Today
Friday, April 02, 2010      0 comments

Yesterday my wife and I took an easy 10 mile spin and I'll probably do the same ride again today. I plan to do a longer ride tomorrow or Sunday so I don't want to push it too hard. I have 11 days to get as many miles in as possible before I leav... Read more
Great 40-Miler Yesterday
Thursday, April 01, 2010      0 comments

I was able to get 40 miles in yesterday and it sure felt good. There was a fair WNW wind and so I rode straight into for the first 15 miles and then turned around and had it at my back--that was awesome! Then I did 5 more straight into it and en... Read more
