I've been off for a month.

I have an olympic coming up in October and I really need to ride.

For accountability purposes, I will chime in...I have been off the bike for 9 months and have a long Oly with a hilly course in October. After a 50K in early June I had some issues with an infected toe/nail and couldn't get shoes on for weeks. But now the nail is gone, shoes are fine, and there are no more excuses!

I've been off the bike since my last race on June 2nd.  It's still in race trim with the disk cover on the rear wheel, now flat tires and all.  I want to do a Tough Metric mid November and need to get back on too.  Race ya to it!

I did ride an hour today.

I used to ride 3500-5000 miles a year. Since IML 2011 I have maybe ridden 300 miles mostly due to injury, family stuff and a lingering infection. Now I can train again, I just don't have mojo. I ride I like it but my motivation isn't there.

I just got a tri-bike at Christmas for my first 70.3. I loved riding it... But after the race i just kind petered out.. I feel kind of bad having this nice bike and not riding it like I'd like to.. 

Tomorrow will be a good early morning ride.

I'm just as guilty here! Thankfully my work schedule is about to drastically shift and in my favor! I've pretty much scrapped this season and will just start building a SERIOUS base of fitness for next year!

We are often asked the question, "What size frame should I buy" and the answer is “it depends”. I know that’s not the answer you want to hear, but hopefully the following will shed some more light.

Soon after I got married, I decided I needed to get motivated to work out and focus on getting back into shape. I could barely jog a quarter-mile without needing a walk break.
