    Thanks for helping me understand. I'm sorry the cold is the limiter. It'll be hot to warm here through Christmas, typically. Our coldest months are January and February. My DH rides year-round. He wears (and swears by) wool. The last time I tried to ride in very cold weather was a New Year's Day and I stayed out a total of 15 minutes. LOL.

    Yes, I hope to keep up with it for a while. Tomorrow I'm shooting for a 30-mile ride, no plans for Sunday, and then next week I hope to commute both ways at least twice. This week was my first week commuting in Mon-Fri, so I'm pretty happy about it.

    Wahoo! I hope it works as well for you as it does for him. Please Keep me posted, if you think about it.

    I just wanted to stop by and thank you for your comment on my Blog about my hubby. That was SO sweet of you!

    He's expected to be discharged on Wed, so that's good news!

    Have a wonderful week!
    P.S--can you give me any kind of info on what I can expect in the next few weeks/months? I went to see him today and he was very emotional & frustrated. I'm guessing that's probably normal,all things considered. Thank you!

    A long time ago, I had read about interval training. I don't think I can pedal all out for a mile. But, at the end of my trainer ride last night I was able to twice ride all out for 30 seconds. I figure I'd try that again tonight and see if maybe I could do it three times. I think once I can get 5 sets of riding as fast as I can, I would start increasing the time from 30 seconds to 40, to 50, to 60, etc.

    I've used a similar methodology to increase my walking speed from 20-minute miles to as fast as 16-minute miles. I *assume* the principles are the same, but I'm not a sports-ologist so I'm not sure if it'll work or not. I just figure it cannot hurt.

    Funny thing is I don't think speed is that important, but I also don't want to try a century at anything less than a very consistent 15 mph speed. So, I'm willing to give intervals a try. Oh, and the losing 40 lbs., yes, I'm willing to try that too. Hee hee!
