    Damn I'm out of shape

    I stopped doing cardio about 6 months ago (shoe leather express 3 times a week on a 5 mile circuit around the neighborhood) because my knees have just gotten too bad. Stepped on the scale yesterday and found I've gained around 20-25lbs.

    Dusted off the old Cannondale and filled up the tires. I was surprised the tubes didn't burst. Went for a ride, I'm still coughing like I'm going to die. Was able to keep my 20mph average speed but only went 1/4 of the distance that I would normally go on a leisurely run.. Damn I'm out of shape.

    Heh, I just pulled my Bianchi out of storage last night, and went for the first ride on it in about two years. Same thing, went a short distance, and felt like I was going to die I'm going to try to get in at least a mile or two every night for a while to see if it changes how I'm feeling.

    Welcome to my world......now what are we going to do about it?

    I quit chewing and put on 20 lbs. So I'm going to live longer from quiting chewing but I will die from being overweight.
    I need to find more time to do more hiking plain and simple.

    Re: Damn I'm out of shape

    I thought I was in great shape too, and I am--I average about 20 minutes for a 5k--which my squadron does once a week. But.... I found out again (been about 4 years since I was on a bike) that a bike uses different muscles. I was out riding last night--on flat ground near 83rd ave thunderbird trail. I was passed 3 times by guys on XC bikes---my only comfort was that I'm on a Dual Suspension All Mountain/Free ride bike thing must weigh 40 lbs ...

    Dropped my truck off at Hoppers Automotive the other day for some work. Rode my bike to work(about 3 miles into the wind). Feels like my lungs are full of steel wool now. It sucks getting old.

    Re: Damn I'm out of shape

    I enjoyed to many goodies during the holidays, then slacked off going to gym. Ended up going hiking, thought I was going to kill over the 1st time. 3 mile hike @ Tbird Park. Going up mountain was not fun. I did go hiking 4 days last week. Went to gym yesterday & made my arms sore. Went again this AM & now my arms & legs are sore. You don't realize how much exercising helps until you stop. Gotta get the tummy toned again. Never had fatty tummy before & is sucks..........

    Oh yeah, smoking doesn't help...........
    Yeah I know, not bike related
