    Keep in mind that weight loss is rarely linear. Plateaus are more the rule than the exception. When I lost my weight, I tended to have a couple of weeks when I'd lose 3-5 lbs then weeks when weight...

    Low slung 2 seaters are the fastest cars on the road. Why doesn't everyone drive them?

    1431 is pretty close to 30 cal/mile and is probably pretty close to what you actually burned.

    FWIW, if you do this long enough and also log your intakes and daily weight, you'll get a very good...

    Trust your own body to tell you if a recovery ride was worthwhile. Did you feel better the next day? Did it seem easier than usual at the time?
