So Iíve finally started to get serious about my workouts. Iíve been doing spin classes for the last year (which is what inspired me to get back into road biking), but it never seemed like enough.
I re-dedicated myself to the gym and have put myself on a strict program of five days per week for at least six weeks. In addition, Iíve started to incorporate some weight training and abs work, which Iíve NEVER done in the past. WOW! What a difference it makes! Iím halfway into week three and I can already feel a huge difference in my riding during spin classes. (I should also mention that Iíve given up chips for Lent. That alone should get me 5 lbs in not time. )
