    Rookie of the Year

    Here's for the new folk
    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.

    I voted. I almost demanded entry into the poll, but I only recently got back up above 200 (during the holidays). Most of my posting time here on BF has been as an unClyde.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Nice to see I'm not the only person who thinks TechKnowGN is pretty special.

    I'm in full agreement. What's great about this year is that ALL of the nominees are pretty dang special. All of them embody more drive and desire then the entirety of a Biggest Loser season.

    Good work, rookies. Only downside is that you have to follow it up in year two

    All of our polls have one thing in common in that while only one person will win, there are no losers. Every nominee is worthy of recognition.

    It's amazing just to be nominated for anything at all, especially for something this cool. The more I read others histories, the more I am blown away by being honored by these same people. With 3 days left to go, I doubt I'll catch MissBumble, but I couldn't care in the least.

    Ah, the dreaded second-year slump.

    Not me, I'm going to rock year two way harder than I did year one. I am close to posting my full workout plan for the first 1/3rd of the year. I've built a spreadsheet that shows the date, the planned workout, current weight, workout completed, and once I make a couple more changes, the total lost from the beginning of the year.

    I'm also looking to maybe add the "points consumed" in regards to how many weight watchers points I ate that day to compare with the points expended completing the exercise listed. This should tell me how much my exercise is affecting my intake and my weight loss.

    Tech, check out www.mapmyride.com it will give you some tools that will help in teh training log, and you can actually map out you regular rides as well as map out possible rides.

    I've been using bikely.com for my mappings, but I'll check this site out too. At this point with the weather the way it is, my cross training is expected to be 90% indoors until probably after the half-marathon in Feburary. Any time its warm enough and there isn't ice on the ground, I'll be on the bike on my crosstraining days. On days like today, where it's raining, cold, and icy; the crosstraining is in the gym, mostly on the eliptical which feels remarkably similar to biking. The exercise bike in our complexs' gym sucks

    Most exercise bikes are pretty bad. I have a hard time going back after riding the 'real thing.'

    In my case, it's the usual problem of my knocked knees. I can't ride 'regular' pedals any longer. Last time I rode a spin bike I fell off it. I still have the scars on the back of my right leg from the pedal 'beartrapping' me.

    OUCH! I know I'm going to fall off a bike at some point, I just hope its not any time soon.
