Last ride

of 2007 was on the road Saturday for 1 1/2 hours,it felt good just to get some kind of ride in outside.I really don't want to spend to much time in the dungeon so when I can put up with the weather I'm going outside.

My ride I had planned yesterday didn't happen,I needed to get the rest of the wood cut up and brought up to the house.I still got a pretty good workout in before I went in to see the last regular season of football.

Two truck loads and I was spent

I'll lay out what my goals are for 2008 tomorrow,I hope I feel good enough to go for a walk at Jubilee.

Happy New Year !

See ya !

Time to get on the spinner

When ever I can't get outside,I need to kick up the time on the bike inside or outside.I have gained 15 pounds in the off season and I would like to get down to 160lbs by the T/4 race.That would mean I need to lose 25 pounds WTF ! I'm starting a 10 week cutting diet that should get most of the weight off.

It starts with some time on the spinner !

I did an hour tonight with some recovery yoga,I'll get outside for a road ride on the Mnt bike,then home to get some more wood cut up.I lost a good size Oak tree last week that fell over my bike trails so it's going to tribute to heating the house.

I'm also having some problems with my left ankle after rolling it at work a couple weeks ago.I thought I could work through it but it getting worse so I went to get it x-rayed and I do have some kind of a hairline crack or torn tendon.I can walk fine but I can't run at all...It feels ok on the bike !

See ya !

Hitting the weights

Plus sitting on the spinner will be my main workouts this week and If the weather breaks from this Ice I'll get a ride on the R.I.T. again Saturday.I've been looking at some 29R's at Bushwhackers for a new Trans Iowa bike,but I need to do some more research and some test rides.The Gary Fisher Cobia is what I'm looking at it's the lower end hardtail they have and I would make some modification for the TI4 race.

A little shoulder work

A whole Lotta reps here

I took today off and I hope to get a quick workout in after work tomorrow

See ya !

Ever start a project at

Home and it takes way longer to finish it than you were planing ? Thats what I have been doing for the last 3 1/2 weeks and work has been crazy at the milk plant with me working 55 to 60 hrs in the truck.I finally had a Saturday that I didn't have any where to go that night or get called in to work so I made some good progress on the wall and was able to finish up the grouting a couple of days later.

Putting the stone up

I was glad to get this done

I hit the R.I.T. for some much needed time on the bike.

I hope to get back on track with some winter rides and the spinner down in the dungeon.Yoga,Cyclo Core and weights will be my main focus this winter.

The race in January up north is on my radar,I need some more time in the saddle before I make up my mine.I still have trouble with keeping my feet warm in this cold weather,I'm good for about 1 1/2 hrs then my feet give out.

Congrat's to James for becoming a Peoria county Police officer,he graduated Thursday and will start on the job this week I think,much respect for what he's doing !

See ya !
