But I also plan to lift pretty hardcore after school(i get out at 1pm and practice wont start until 330 so i need somethin to do and I love to lift) then go to wrestling practice and anybody that has been to a wrestling practice knows it can get pretty intense. So my question is will riding and hour + on the trainer, lifting, and wrestling be too much? Im in good shape and pretty athletic(not bragging).
I played football and wrestled myself, also in Ohio (Valley Forge HS)...way too many years ago. Screw the trainer, ride to school. I used to ride 5 miles to school on my single-speed Schwinn 'tank', go to practice after school, then ride another 6 miles to work, work 4 hours, then ride 5 miles home to get some sleep and start all over again. Yeah, you can handle it.
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
