Sometimes you have to hit the gym
You know how it is: You really want to ride your bike, but sometimes you can’t get out to ride, and, besides, off-bike training is good for you.
– Makes you more flexible.
– Makes you stronger.
– Makes you even more excited to ride.
That’s how I feel at work these days. I really want to finish my books and work on this site, but I can’t find the time and, besides, the other work is good for me.
The other work:
– Makes me more flexible. I’m learning a ton about business, software, design, writing, photography, working with a team — everything.
– Makes me smarter. And pays the bills.
– Makes me even more excited to write Mastering Mountain Bike Skills part 2, finish Pro BMX Skills, rock this site, teach bike skills and do all the other stuff I love to do.
OK, back to this monstrous Excel spreadsheet. Sometimes you have to hit the gym …
Hey Lee I hear you!
I went for my first ride in about 3 mos yesterday. (decided to descend below the snow line) I’ve only been working out on the treadmill and doing the DB Combo routine. Other than my bike skills being rusty, I felt great. In fact, I’d have to say that I was in better shape than my riding partner, who has been riding all that time. I’m sold on Gym time and James program. Though I’m not telling my friend 😉 Why give up my edge?
Right on Greg!
Lee, I appreciate all your effort.
Its not the weather here in NorCal that keeps me off the bike but a knee injury. So, reluctantly, off to the gym I go too…
… any minute now …
