Bike Riding Begins Now February 28, 2008

Posted by K in Biking, K's Perspective.

So, with just a little over a month to go before my metric century, I’ve decided to kick the cycling training up into high gear. From here on out I’ll be riding at least twice a week and riding my bike anywhere I go in the city. Going over the boyfriends house for the weekend? Riding my bike! Going out for drinks? Riding my bike! I figure if I just ride my bike like crazy and actually do some training rides (30 miles +) I should be OK when April rolls around. Or at least OK enough to make it from rest stop to rest stop where I’ll stock up on goodies.

The hard part is that I also need to keep running and start swimming because I need to get in shape for the triathlon. And, though I said no when asked, it’s possible that I could be convinced to do the Trans-Tahoe relay this year (no promises) which is at least three miles of swimming. All in all, this is going to be the summer of K getting into kick-ass shape!

One last thing, I have high hopes for losing weight as I move forward with my cycling training. When I go for a moderate paced, moderate climb 20 mile ride, I burn at least 1,000 calories! If I eat healthy and watch my caloric intake, I’ll be losing weight in no time! (oh how optimistic I am! 😉
