I am going to try and ride every day in December. I plan on an hour for most of the rides because they will all be on the trainer. If it warms up on a given day, I might adventure out to a trail and ride....but I don't like the cold....so I am not counting on it. I missed the first, so I plan on making up that hour by riding 15 minutes extra on four days. I also know that Christmas day will be a no go so I will need to make up time there too.
I can go on the trainer with my ear buds in and my ipod loud as hell. It drowns out the rrrrrrrr of the tire against the trainer wheel. Some people cannot do this, but I hate cold...so I will do it. This spring I hardly rode over an hour. I had a few days over an hour and only two that reached the 1 1/2 hour mark. This year I plan to change that. Riding everyday for an hour should be easy. Not getting bored is another story. I have an interval workout to help with weight loss that I will do 3 days a week. This mixed in with one or two recovery rides per week should keep my sanity in check.
My goal is to lose this poundage I have found in recent months. All this time trying to get the weight off....and I gained.....a bunch. So....the only thing I need to do is work it off and eat better. On day 3, I am hanging in there. I am being more conscience of what I am stuffing down my gullet. I have until Christmas to lose the weight.......and I am off to a good start!
