Stress + Rest = Adaption

The soreness will go away once you figure out your body and how much rest you require.

Balance in life is so hard to find. I do hope the soreness goes away and you can enjoy getting back on your bike.

My resolution is to try hard to not overdo things and get myself sick (without just jacking it all in for the month and sliding backwards). I've been sore and poorly, and I need to recover but I find keeping things balanced in my life quite difficult.

I want to ride 300 miles in November, I really need to wash my bike as well (so filthy!), and lower the sugar intake. I'll start by reducing the number of teaspoons of sugar I put in my morning tea by 1 teaspoon and my mid morning coffee by 1 teaspoon.

I'm in for the bike clean-up. I'm so mean to mine, I just let it collect dirt,mud and debris and expect it to perform!

I took a hose and a bucket & sponge to get a layer of mud off the hardtail, does that count? emoticon

Lucky for me that I can ride year round. So, my goals are:
Increase threshold to 235 watts.
Drop 6 pounds
Carefully log the nutrition
Cycle smart
Take it easy on rest rides.

BTW: Bike cleaning and lubricating is a weekly MUST for me.

A bike tune up sounds great, I know you and your bike will love it.

Yup, T was on the trail, said he saw you. Knee isn't happy this week, but we may try a short road ride on the tandem this afternoon.

Strength training is always good in the cooler months. I really need to do some of that, too.

400 miles, in November. You are adventurous. Keep us posted on your progress, please.

Better nutrition for November, more water, and little to no sugar. Weight training and trail riding. Yes, that was Bev. P.'s truck on the back 40 (Tall. national forest) road, and I didn't see T. I did a trail ride of over 2 hours through the most gorgeous color one could imagine. Bev, as soon as that knee gets the okay, lets ride. I'm good for pacing slower, to get you back!

November is a month to evaluate, strength training, and putting on muscle I lose during cycling season.

I'll do some spinning, some fun cycling, rollers, and computrainer.

October has come to an end. How fast the year is flying by. I am sad to say, I haven't stuck strictly to my nutrition guidelines this month. I really must do better for November. The PT is going well with my knee and I get at least 45 minutes of strength and stretching twice a day. That is helping a bit. I'm also back on the spin bike for at least 15 minutes twice a day. Not as much as I'm used to, but getting better every day.

For my November Resolution/goal, I must do better with my nutrition and faithfully do my PT so I can get back to my bike rides.
