    Vices Take Hold!!!

    Been on holiday for a week - drank loads of lager, guiness, red wine and ate lots of food (trip to London) now need motivation to climb onto the bike and pedal the ******* again. Please provide encouraging messages to motivate me back onto the bike and guide me on on the path to (better) fitness.

    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Get on the bike and pedal so you can take another vacation to partake in adult beverages! How about that?

    Yeah, I'm going through that also. I was on vacation for a week and was supposed to do a century ride during the vacation. The ride was canceled due to the fact that I won't ride that far in sub 50 degree windy rainy weather. So the whole vacation was spent eating and drinking with old college friends (as opposed to just 1/2 of it!)

    I had another century I was supposed to do last weekend, but it was canceled due to the socal fires. Then I got evacuated which threw my whole routine out a wack and motivation went down the drain.

    I spent a few days with friends drinking the booze before I came back home, and only made it to the gym once this week. Ugh.

    I've got two rides planned this weekend, hopefully they won't get canceled. Argh! I can definitely tell I'm a little softer around the middle, double Argh!

    Yeah, my bike's been in dry dock for two weeks and it looks like it's going to be at least another week. By that time it might be snowing.

    Meanwhile I've been drinking and eating lots of mexican food and pizza! I also smoked half a pack of cigarettes last weekend.

    I take heart from the fact that I'm moving to Texas in January so my season will start early this year.

    Guinness is 125 calories.
    Endurance riding requires about 300 calories per hour.
    If you build up to a 12 hour TT, that's over 24 beers, man!

    Yes, and very nice they were too!

    I'll be climbing onto the bike and doing a quick 10 mile trip today. And looks like a 35mile ride tomorrow. Thanks for the messages!

    Eat some apples and start riding now. Everyone needs a holiday, then they need to go back to the normal routine.

    I spent 3 weeks in Europe this past summer enjoying the beers, breads, meats and cheeses of the region. I got home and started slowly working my way back into riding again. Sometimes a break can be good.
