  1. Wow, you look great, and it seems like you're having fun! So cool!
  2. It seemed like an infomercial to me, the way she kept holding up the product and saying the name... weirdness!
  3. Do you know of any good out of the way hikes close by? I wish your PMs were turned on. We need to talk
  4. "There is no doubt riding long hours on your bike consistently for months straight will strike a righteous fitness profit in your legs. But, let us not forget: training is not only about your legs. Training must primarily be about the mental connection between you and your legs. " - dan harm working on it. it's gonna be a good summer.
  5. saturday: repeated a ride that killed me last year. no problem sunday: rest day, super fun hike monday: 30 miles tuesday: 1 hr trainer ride, chill with a few intervals. bench press sucked, i was weak, probably lack of iron. happy with myself for not pushing past where i should have pushed. i loaded up the bar, asked for a spot, and could not put it up. next time for sure!
  6. hey mary! hope you are healing up! monday:35 miles tuesday: extra rest day, due to 7 days of sore quads in a row wednesday: 35 miles quads still sore thursday: 2 mile run, commute around town, quads better friday: 35 mile ride, starting to feel my legs again
  7. sunday 30 mile ride, 3 mile walk. i thought i was just being really tired but apparently i did a fair amount of climbing so that's good!
  8. aha! squatting, i see! very nice. yes, john, i'll take it easy for sure! not going for upper body muscles at this point, mostly core strength, but it's nice to know i could get past a sticking point i've had for a long time! well i learned a lot this week. my main lesson: a rest week is supposed to be an actual week of rest, not an excuse to work hard in different ways. i learned that the hard way. thursday i went for a short 2 mile run, and by the end of it, was really really feeling it in my quads, which were still sore from tuesday's workout. by the time thursday night rolled around, i could barely sit. went for a consult with coachiepoo on friday and caught shit for it but i didn;t need to. i already learned my lesson. so i will take this next week relatively easy i also am probably done with serious weight training legs for now. only very light and plyo if i can manage it. i also need a rest day, because the bike fit i had yesterday saw me pedaling a fair bit, not for long though, but my quads are still sore, so i do need some recovery time. thursday: 2 mile run commute friday: random trainer stuff saturday: 2 hour ride
  9. fifty c&p on both sides per set? that's a lot but i guess it's alternating, so not as much as it sounds? i'm very curious about if you end up sore tonight or tomorrow. and how much weight you used? is your injury all better? also!!! no stair stepper?!?!?! wtf?!?!?!
  10. ooh, stair stepper, that's new eh? how do you like it?
  11. 2/29 1/4 cup oatmeal/9 raisins/hemp 1/4 cup oatmeal/11 raisins, celery, lunabar, protein/water cookie, larabar WORKOUT protein//water beans, lettuce, 1 tbs olive oil raisins workout: 85 min trainer ride, mostly spin ups lats, bench, balance, stability so today i was able to increase weights on lats for the first time since my injury. big day!!!
