Addiction 2023.4

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

What's your doctor's opinion on walking vs NOT walking WRT bone density?

Ya I'm not bad at it, good in the Master's field, but TBH I'm a pretty mid climber for open/elite category 2 in SCNCA. I know guys are tough in NCNCA too. California's districts are among the fittest in the nation.

I like to feel speed and actually enjoy pushing myself more in fast scenarios, criterium/RR breakaways, TT/TTT, track etc. I'm at the lower end of weight to be good at that as you need some amount of raw muscle and wattage for that stuff. I think that I am pretty darn aero in my road and TT positions as well as I seem to be able to roll turns with riders above my pay grade. Over/under efforts and physiology are also more of a strength of mine than raw aerobic FTP.

I'm trying to get myself in to a routine when I've never had one before. Starting off with 20 or so pushups in the morning and then some stretching later in the day. Have been having some frustrations with feeling comfortable on my bike and I'm sure my office job isn't helping my core and posterior chain strength. I've been looking at lots of different bike frames that are a bit larger than what I'm currently riding but I figure that it's a lot cheaper to try adapting my body to the bike than the other way around

A very reasonable offer from the seller on a ratty old Circuit frameset on eBay has been a bit tough to resist. Not sure if I'm quite willing to go back to quill stem life for my main roadie, but man do I have a soft spot for those late 80s Columbus Schwinns

All this talk of strength training gives me the uneasy feeling it's time to start doing it for real this time.

My Medicare Advantage plan includes monthly credits towards a gym membership. The local Y accepts those credits, and it's only a 10-minute walk from home.

An almost free membership to a gym that's super close to home? Gee, I don't know.

I basically don't go to the mountains outside of warm weather months because it's too cold there. It can be chilly even in the summer.

One measure of a whole note should be sufficient.

Like most things, it depends. Its a good start and way better than cycling or swimming. I would say that if you are at low risk for osteoporosis its probably good enough. But may not be enough for those at higher risk.

The Appalachian Mountains, the oldest mountain range on earth, are real mountains.

Years ago I went up Mount Evans and it was ~40F of "toastyness" in August. No thanks.

Acclimation has a lot to do with perceived comfort. A friend of a friend was stationed in Greenland and came to visit here on what we felt was a chilly day. He was amused that we felt cold. He said there was a "heat wave" in Greenland before he left and the daytime high was about 40f. He said the guys were playing volleyball in shorts and shortsleeves,
