Running

With the winter upon us, I’ve taken to either ride my bike on the indoor trainer, or to hit the fitness center and run the tread mill. Yesterday it was the tread mill. I expect it to be the tread mill again tomorrow. Unfortunately, I have a membership with a fitness center that is half an hour away. Not that that’s all bad, since I’m in Pine City for shopping and laundry often enough to make using the fitness center worthwhile.

2014 Tour De Rook – Winter Leg 1

Okay, I’ve got the bike on the indoor trainer. I also rigged my odometer to the back tire so that I can get miles, speed, etc., etc., etc. So, without further todo:

To the stats;

  • Miles: 6.89Tour_Rook
  • Time: 0:28:40
  • Max Speed: 61%
  • Average Speed: 14.4

So, I am watching my Blu-Ray Battlestar Galactica set. I’m on Season Three, where I left off when I stopped indoor training last winter. I haven’t ridden for a while, so I just didn’t have the leg strength for more than the 28 minutes. Plus I did exercises before riding. I am back up to 60 push ups and 30 4 count crunches. However, I’m hoping to increase my time on the bike.

Also, I’m planning on running again soon. I just need an orange vest so some hunter doesn’t mistake me for a deer.
