It doesn't take much biking to stay fit during the winter - as long as it happens many days/week.

5 miles (reasonably hard ridden) twice/day monday-friday works well to stay fit and be ready for hard riding next spring.

That's what I'm hoping. I'd like to do two or three days a week, maybe about 30 min of HIIT to get stronger and other times about an hour of steady pace "road riding" style just to keep them in shape endurance-wise. I've just recently switched to clipless too and although I've been told I have very good pedalling technique, especially for a new clipless guy, I know I have room to work on it and improve. Being on the bike over the winter is definitely going to help.

I had one year when I had zero time to train. But 8km (5 miles) to work. Did go quite hard very morning and very hard uphill home.

Thought I would be toast for Vätternrundan (300km) the following summer since I had so little actual training in the legs. Found out I was in absolute top shape.

But a hint was when I switched from the mountainbike to the new racer after the snow was finally gone. First "quick" tour just to check out the brand new bike was 100 km and averaging just under 40km/h. Then I moved - and switched work - and got too short distance to get to work. So now I'm always way out of shape when the snow and ice is finally gone. I don't get in shape until the season is already ending. This winter I just need to see if I can find the software CD and spend some quality time on a Tacx virtual reality turbo-trainer.

Excellent!

I'm still plugging away, weight's now between 158-162 pounds, still tweaking my exercise routine. Had to drop to one lap on my bridge to cut my legs some slack (arthritis in right hip, pulled something in my left leg), but since my weight's starting to rise again I'm going to have to go back to my 4.4 mile routine.

One year of lifting this month, maxed out my current set of dumbbells at 25 pounds and about to order a fixed set sometime before Christmas.

Onward, gentlemen!

Still at it. Got a clean bill of health from MD. He also told me that my goal of 179 was not going to be a natural weight for me. Told me to scale it up 10lbs or so. So, we'll see where I land. Right now the goal is to lose 10 more Lbs and get under 195.



Ain't nothin but a thing.

Note that it might not be a bad thing if the weight is going up a bit. It's just a question of if it is a constant weight increase or if the weight is stabilizing. And when you have no more fat to strip off but continue to build muscles then the natural direction is to increase in weight. Next is that you just might be a couple of pounds low because of water loss.

I bottomed out at 152 earlier this year, it's been a gradual rise since then; with 'binge' spikes a couple of times up to 165-168, I usually get it down within a week (and get the offending groceries out of my house!). I'm pretty sure a good deal of it is muscle mass increase, the other part is me breaking the 'eight-hour rule' (eat only within an 8-hour period, no food otherwise), especially when I finish my workout and walk and decide I have to have something...gotta stop that!:lol:

But 152 is very low - so are you very short? Like 1.60-1.65m?

The standard BMI chart for my height (5'9") says I should be at 162 (BMI=24). I wanted ten pounds of leeway so if I started building up muscle mass I wouldn't get too upset. 169 puts me overweight again (BMI=25), and I swore I wouldn't go there ever again.

I'd be satisfied to get back to 155-158 and hold it there.

Wow, did this thread drop out of sight or what?

I trust that everyone survived the holidays-or are attempting to survive the holidays-and get back on track to meeting their goals!

I've added a couple of exercises to my routine and dropped a couple, weight spiked to 172 during Christmas, managed to get it back down to the 163-165 range and pushing forward.

Stopped walking 4.4 miles and dropped back to 2.2 on my bridge, but now I've started jogging on the downhill portions (again), hopefully my left ankle won't start **** and let me know it doesn't like it!

OK folks, what's been going on?

not a good time for me. I am at 380 which is still below my starting weight, but not by much. Recently though, I developed a pinched nerve in my lower back and its affecting my leg and groin. So no exercising and even walking is tough. But I am trying. Diet is eh right now because of the holidays. I was planning on starting this week again but the pinched nerve really dinged it up for me. Frustrating.

You can do this, Chet! It's ugly, I know-and I DO know-but don't give up and don't give in!

I have no idea why this quote popped up, but the only thing I can think of is the Spectre in Crisis On Infinite Earths fighting the Anti-Monitor and shouting "We have not lost! Not yet! I need more power! MORE POWER!"

Bear down, Chet-you just need MORE POWER!:D
