4000 for the year had bypass in Dec 11th of 2009

I just hit 4000 for the year. One year after bypass. I have been spinning for the last 2 months with some outdoor rides because I live in Cleveland. I love Spinervals dvds. I did Spinervals 13.0 Tough Love the other day. 3 hours of spinning. I also have the pain cave and working out with Iron girls. I am also on a total vegan diet. All is going well so far. I am so glad I have a road bike!!!

Bypass in 1999 and still going (Adding strong afterwards may be an exaggeration now though).

Keep it going but look for a looooong ride in a couple of years that will push you a bit. Train for it now but set a goal- whether it be a 5 day organised ride- a 200km or even a 100 miler in 5 hours. The thought may frighten you- but the training for it will make certain everything is OK.

Very nice work apesrunner58! This week doesn't look good for riding in NE Ohio, meaning more time in the pain cave. I do attend an indoor workout program in Bath that may be of interest to you.

I am back on the bike after a quad bypass in July 2010. I have ridden 320 miles. Good to be able to ride again.
