The poser is back!! :D No longer clydesdale..training continues..
So I'm no longer officially a clydesdale being that I know weigh in at 183 which is down from late last years 210 lbs. Earlier in the same year I was 230. The year before I was 265! =/
I've been training hard the last several months with the cheapo treadmill and the bowflex. And when the cheapo treadmill died I switched over to an indoor blackburn trainer which I hooked the bike up to.
Since then I've been going through spinerval dvds which have been hammering at my leg muscles for several weeks now.
However, these past 4 weeks or so there has been almost no training.
I just got tired.
I've lost a little bit of the steam and motivation I had over the winter and I need some encouragement to continue training for the upcoming summer.
I might have lost weight but what I desperately need to do right now is to focus on training the core muscles which are badly undeveloped. The abs and the back muscles I mean.
Just came back from paragon sports in manhattan and bought myself some running equipment since I really desire to start running. Did a test run the other day and found out that I really am still out of shape. But I find it a personal triumph that at least I am able to do some consistent (albeit slow) jogging at a decent pace for extended periods of time.
In any case its all cross training for when I finally am able to fly up those hills in prospect park on my roubaix and stay with the pace line.
So......any tips for the poser?
p.s. What do you guys think of amino fuel or that bio builde stuff? I'm putting myself on a 6 week program to finish out march, all of april, and the first week in may. This will consist of bowflex work, running, cycle training with spinerval dvds and/or actual outdoor riding. Then in the middle of may I will see where I am and how my summer will shape up performancewise.
Thanks for the feedback.
