3.31.12 Now where was I...?

Joe Strummer's picture

I just stumbled across my last blog post. Dated 2.13.11 and titled "Step 4," it described my steps towards returning to fitness after an ankle injury about six months earlier.

Now, it's a year later. I've ridden almost 10,000 mils since then. My numbers for 2012 look like this:

January: 556
February: 580
March: 825

I already plan to ride 60 miles tomorrow. I figure I may as well add 15 to make it an even 75, 900 for the month.

I have been riding a lot of miles.

I also have been trying to return to running. Since the first of this year, I have slowly, gradually been increasing the distance and pace at which I run. So far, I'm up to 2.5 mile at about an 8:45 pace.

Today, I biked down to O'Fallon, Ill. to watch the Edwardsville Tigers compete at the O'Fallon Relays. On the way home, I witnessed a two-car action at the intersection of Seven Hills Road and O'Fallon-Troy Road. Fortunately, neither driver was injured. Shaken up, yes. Injured, no. This delayed my return trip. As a result, I found myself riding for about an hour at night. Thank goodness for low-traffic Madison County roads and a strong headlamp.

There's a lot more I could say about the day -- and about the past 13 months, during which I rode a lot but wrote very little. But not now. It's late, and tomorrow I'm biking over to KDHX

Getting your bike and yourself in shape.

I always believe that exercise helps with reducing stress and motivating yourself at the same time. Well, i used to make this comment to my friends and acquaintances. You know the saying, "some people love to talk the talk but not walk the walk". I was one of those person.

About 2 years ago I purchase a road bike to help me take my own advise, as i would give others, which I wasn't doing. At the time I was looking for a comfortable way to get into shape - lose some weight. I must say, get a good bike could be costly, that is, if you get one of those top class bikes :) In any case, I found out that taking care of your bike requires a clear mind and a pinch of patience :)And, if you don't have those two key things, your bike life could be painful. Now, i believe I have somewhat conquer that challenge and actually increase my knowledge about getting your bike and yourself in shape in some easy steps. You could check out my site Bike-Maintenance to better understand what I'm talking about.

Cycling is good for health.

Cycling is good for health. It is totally depends upon your stamina that how long you can ride a bicycle. But now a days most of the people avoiding these practices due to lack of time. They are preferring to use cars and highly luxurious vehicles. They would not understand that these type of vehicles only give them luxury but not the physical strength. The use of luxurious vehicles need lots of care or service for the vehicles otherwise it will affect the life span of the vehicles.
