Pedal Pedal Pedal

I'm back up to 20 miles every other night on my bicycle trainer for the first time since I ate the giant pizza and went into surgery. Took a while. Can't say it's completely comfortable, but at least I'm up and running at the rate I like to be at if I'm going to hit the spring pedaling so I'm ready for RAGBRAI. And particularly if I want to try and do the 60+ mile route at the Ironman.

This should serve as fair warning to my father. Get on your bike. Pedal. And make sure you hit some hills. There's a bike group down there that bikes almost 365 days a year. I guess TCBC bikes almost 365 days a year too, but that's what trainers are for, so I ignore that craziness, despite my brother-in-law being proud of his mid-winter riding.

I have the tredmill set up and also my trainer. I have started 30 minutes a day on the tredmill and 30 on the trainer. It is a little difficult to get back into the swing of things. I would swim a few laps in the pool but it is only 43 degrees.

John realizes this isn't a triathalon, right? Kidding aside, the treadmill (and swimming) will do you good!

It was last time I rode it. Bike all day, walk afternoon finding food and shower, Sleep in a puddle of water (due to leaky tent). All three events.
