Mission: LBM

Lean Body Mass, that is! Now that I've had some down time I'm ready to go.

I've been working with a Personal Trainer but this week starts the true 12-week-training phase. Eddie and I did this on our own gym training last year but, unfortunately, I didn't keep up with any strength work so I lost it all once the season started :(

I'm still not doing anything structured on the bike, just having fun. Now I have a new fixie to figure out--that will provide some excitement in the meantime! This coming weekend is also the Halloween rides & party at Mulberry Gap. After that Cartecay Bikes will be putting on the weekly Chili Dawg rides which are 30+ miles of good ole' gravel road grinding followed by hot homemade chili...yum!

I started running yesterday, also. I'm starting small (i.e. 30 minutes) because normally I like to go from zero to 16 miles at Kennesaw Mountain (and then I don't run again for the rest of the year!). I'd like to keep it up this year so I have an option when it's too cold to ride. And, yes, I do think it gets too cold to ride in Georgia sometimes! :)

And, last but not least...I've worked out my "off-season" nutrition plan. It's more aggressive now that I'm done racing and not yet training long hours. I'm really excited about it! I've learned a ton of new stuff in the last 8 weeks from one of my classes this semester and looking forward to seeing how it works for me.

OK, it's time to go work on sponsorship, life, and....oh yeah....thesis.

If your thinking about racing geared next season, the fixie will help refine your spin. I heard Eddie is doing some spin refinement stuff and I cant wait to get him to look at mine. So, Ive been without the cane fo rtwo days, and I think I will go to the park with the kids and try a longish walk. You and Eddie are gonna have quite a headstart on me.

Cheers and beers
