You have the free time so get on your bike and start putting some miles on. I use a stationary bike and an elliptical machine at home.

yeah I am gonna start this week and ride up as many inclines as possible to work me real hard. I snowboard a lot during the winter so u would think I would be in better shape.

You should just take your bike whenever you have an errand to run. I found that even riding a couple of miles here and there really helps your control and endurance on the trails. And it's not like you're "training" you're just doing what you'd usually do but without the car.

I'd try that if I didn't live like 20 miles from everything! LOL

Dude, I can't even make it 1 mile without dying. My legs feel like they will fall off.

BTW, are there any good beginner training plans? Or should I just keep trying to make it up my street? Jay and Carl know how much of a bitch my street is. I don't want to walk it up because that's gay.

Well, after talking to Carl I decided to go for making it up my street which is a huge incline. Admittedly I had to walk it for a few hundred feet but I made it. :D So I kept on going until I went about 1 mile one way. Then I turned around and coasted down the hill. :lol: But I made it which made me happy. I actually felt a big difference from my 1st day yesterday. Watch out Jay!

Hey Steve! Honestly I've been thinking about it but I dunno about that. I would like to do a race by the end of the summer just to see how I do but I'll let you know!

As I seem to have a daily update going I just wanted to say I did my 6 or 7 mile loop again. It's getting pretty easy so I think I may have to expand my route soon. I may even go for 10 miles this weekend so we'll see. I can't wait to go on a real mtn bike ride though.
