    fergit the spa? (is that the same as a "gym"?)
    Yeah, same as the gym. Just don't like riding in rain, get filthy, can't go as fast, and it's more dangerous. Did go to the gym and was pleasently suprised. I went for the excercise bikes, which were all being used. Saw they had some new equipment, NordicTrack Incline Trainer http://www.nordictrack.com/cgi-bin/n...&rootcat=46525 , great piece of equipment. You can adjust the incline to 50 degrees. First time I tried this I was going to fast and almost fell off as I was holding on trying to decrease the incline So, bottom line would have prefered to be out on the bike, but got in a good workout.

    Today was a pat myself on the back kind of ride. I woke up at 6:30, saw it was cloudy out, checked weather.com, they predicted rain and thunderstorms. Sat around til about 8 trying to decide what to do, really wanted to get a long ride in but didn't want to do it in the rain. Between 6:30 and 8 no rain, damn, that's an hour and a half I wasted. Said screw it, got dressed, jumped on the bike and started riding, it immediately started drizzling, what to do. This is where I actually thaught of Bruno busting my chops, I decided to take a 10 mile ride and see how things look then. Got to the 10 mile mark, rain had stopped, so I kept on going. Along the way thought of Marc and his 60 milers, says to myself if that lil bastid can do it so can I! In the end wound up with 40 miles at a 17.2 mph avg. This is the best I have done in at least 10 years, and more important then just doing it, was the fact that I felt good all the way, Didn't get 60 miles in, didn't even try, but know that it's within reach. Marc, Bruno, thanks you guys inspired me.

    Two words I never thought I'd hear in a sentence together - Marc and inspired...

    It downpoured around here all weekend. Hoping to get in a ride tonight.
    Fear should be treated like fire - it's a good thing that can keep you warm but it can also burn down the house

    andy! you da man!!!! 40 at 17.2? duder, you inspire me!!! the rain wasn't all that bad!! and ridin' in the rain, ya really deserve your beers or your wine or your pizza or your pasta or whatever ya re-fuel and reward yourself with!!

    me? i was a slacker yesterday. just 18 miles all around town here in boston/somerville/cambridge doin' errands. so i didn't reward myself as much. no alcohol and vegetables all day. (but i like vegetables!!)

    but way to go andyzee!!!

    Actually, after about the first 10 miles, my avg. speed was as high as 18.3.
    After that I hit some decent hills. In the old days, I would have laughed at these stats, now at the age of 49, damn, I'm proud. Still got something in me and I hope to keep pushing myself throughout the summer. Maybe even get a century in.

    Bruno, Your enthusiasm is infectious! My daily commute is 40 miles round trip, and it has been great! I do have the luxury of having showers at work so that's good. I barely fill up the gas tank in the car at all.

    And then for fun I ride on the weekends?
