Yes I am still riding, well at least on the trainer, that way I can be much stronger and have better physical shape when I actually move outdoors. I have had two big workouts over the past week, setting two mini records for myself. One is the total distance covered, now realize I am riding in a 32 tooth front and 22 tooth rear just so that I can get a lot of turns on my cranks so I can get a better workout aerobically speaking. I have achieved my first 10 mile ride, this goes back over the past year, I have not ridden that far in 20+ years (back then I was commuting to and from work over 15 miles one way, 5 days a week, I was fit back then). I have also set another personal record, over the course of 8 miles, yes on the trainer, I averaged 16 miles per hour, so I made it 8 miles in 30 minutes. I am hoping that is a sign of how in shape I am and that it is a good one. Today I start to move up the gears, will give me much farther distances but should also work me out muscualrly. I will probably try just switching to the bigger front gear tonight and see how it goes, hopefully I can start to prepare for group rides soon and possibly join Chesapeake Spokes as well. We shall see.
Thanks for reading,
