Bike Fit

Aside from going to a bike shop to be fitted, can anyone give me any advice on my bike fit by watching this video?

Blog it, And it Will Be

So, my training is sucking to say the least.  You cannot even call it training.  Running 1.5 miles once a week.  What the hell is that??!!!

I typically work out at night after dinner.  The problem is that I am usually exhausted by the time dinner is finished.  So, I am going to make time during the day or before dinner to work out.  I am going to alternate between the treadmill and the bike trainer.  I am going to workout 6 days a week for 30 minutes at a time.  I am going log my miles on Daily Miles (Orange widget in right hand column of blog).

It seems to be extremely easy for me to blow off workouts and blame it on being tired and blaming it on my transplant.  That is bullshit.  I am just being lazy.  Anyone can do anything for 30 minutes,  I vow to all blog readers that I will work out 6 days this week.  I am writing this in hopes that it will force me to workout.

We got a new camcorder this week.  Playing with it the other day and came across a sure sign of Spring.

Going Back to Work

We finally got word from my doctor that I could return to work.  After being out for over 8 months, I am pshyched to say the least.

The plan is for me to gradually build up to 40 hours a week from home over the next couple of months..  I am still waiting on final approval, but it looks like I will start working 2 hours a day, 5 days a week from home on April 18th.  I will do that for 2 weeks and then go to 4 hours a day.  2 weeks and then 6 hours a day.  2 weeks and then 8 hours a day from home.  I am very fortunate to work for a company that has held my position for this long.  Thanks PWD!

As far as training goes, I am slowly making progress.  It is frustrating as hell to only be able to run 1.6 miles in 30 minutes.  I used to do close to 5 miles in 30 minutes.  My progress this week was 1.5 miles in 30 minutes to 1.6 miles in 30 minutes.  .10 mile improvement!!!  I have added a little widget in the right hand column of the blog where you can track my training if you are really bored.  Right now, the numbers are not to great.  They will improve.  I will run a 5K this year and I will finish in under 30 minutes. (maybe if I type it, it will happen)
