First of all, I am going to announce up front that I am a clyde. This is truth. I am getting into riding to NOT be a clyde, and this is truth. The point is, I want to lose about 100 pounds. Now, knowing that, I have a few questions of you guys -
My bike is a Trek 7000 and it is heavy. Would it behoove me try to lighten this puppy up a bit? Im asking because I ride it (just started today) and my legs just seem to not wanna push after about a half mile. Its like they turn to rubber and I get frustrated as hell and just wanna quit. Would lightening the bike up a bit help or should I just HTFU and try to push through this? Is it the weight of the bike or the weight of the rider that is doing this to me?
Also, if you were just starting at 310 pounds, what distances would you shoot for? Are there any types of training plans that will help me with the weight loss?
Thanks for any help!
