Thread: Off season workout.

  1. #21
    Gary,

    The setting I use on the WC is in the middle, I'm on the road, so I can't look at the numbers. And unfortunately, I don't have the slope simulator - but I'm just about ready to spring for it - I've heard too many good things about it.

    summer training

    Glad to see life on this forum!

    Gary, you and Liz are to be commended for sticking to such a solid conditioning program. Biking is a wonderful exercise (no stress on my arthritic knee). I had a custom fit when I bought my road bike a few years ago. It was money well spent.

    And congratulations on your retirement, Gary! When did that happen? I've been forced into "retirement" since April 28th. My company was sold and most of us were voted off the island. You'd think I'd be at the gym taking advantage of my free time but the day isn't long enough to handle all the projects that need to be done at home and at our Vermont place. I've logged some miles on the unicyle and have gotten pretty good at freemounting the bigger one. I'm trying to learn to idle on the shorter one (very difficult). I have managed to get out on the course more. The last five rounds have been from the back tees on par 72 courses and my worst round was an 83 so I can't gripe too much.

    With the temps near 100 degress for the third straight day, maybe I should stay inside and focus on finding a job!

    Yes Indeed GARY!!!

    Gary,

    Dude, way to go! (Can a 55 year old, gray haired man say Dude!).

    You will definately like the effects of entering ski season fit.

    Just got back from 8 days of race training at Mt. Hood - absolutely friggin incredible. Will provide a full report here in a couple of weeks. (Gotta get my desk clean).

    If you can find me a 54-55cm to ride, I will be up in Park City 10-14 Aug. I'd like to ride a day with both you and liz. Otherwize, I will be doing the daily single track climb to jupiter starting at mid-mountain trail from the top of Pay Day.

    Reason

    The main reason for my visit to the Boston area was to see customers, of which the company at 9 Columbia Drive in Amherst is one.

    Also to look at the 06/07 models 8)
