Out of Shape

It's been over two months since my last ride, and even that was more about trail clearing than riding. I've got a lot of excuses: busy with work and home, wet weather, cold weather, wet trails, leafy trails, snowy trails, less daylight, and the bigger the gap between rides, the more I know the next ride is going to be hard.

Just as in previous years, I'm looking for some motivation to get exercising and back in shape.  The Singlespeed-a-Palooza is it.  This year the bikes are doing 32 miles and the unicycles will still do 24.  Plenty for most of us, and we'll start at the same time, instead of an hour early.  There's no way I could ride that now, but I've got just over 3 months to get in shape.

Tonight I started exercising.  I did Fitness Blender's Comprehensive Total Body HIIT Cardio and Core Workout.  I assumed it would be too much but I could slow down and take longer breaks.  But it's hard not to push and I ended up close to using a bucket.  I'll be feeling it in the morning. Actually I'm feeling it now. lol

I'm also going to start eating better.
