A friend of mine that runs and doesn't ride calls me every day with the same question: "Have you ridden 15 or more miles today?" He doesn't deal with excuses well. Let's just say he is persistent and tough.
So, I started an overall get in shape program two weeks ago. Jogging 3 miles per day and working out with weights at the gym four days a week. Heavy on core body exercises consisting of bridges and sit ups and crunches on a ball. I've dropped over five pounds and have to admit that my butt cheeks are sore! I had a sore left knee from pushing to hard of a gear and have worked that out now so it is time to put the bike back into the aerobic training regimen.
Getting through a slump of funk is tough and I couldn't do it without the encouragement if not out right
being implored to get going by an accountability partner.
Now if I could just find someone to ride with. It would be great!
