how long before you can run again? I'm love/hate with running, but even when I'm bored with my normal routes and unhappy with my times, I'd be really antsy if I was out of commission for a while.

yet you still smoke cigarettes...


And drink, a LOT. And smoke the occasional spliff(occasional because I'm stopping it altogether).

But it's not that hard to stay active, even with doing all that. you balance out the bad with the good, and you can do everything.

I'm torn between busting on you for saying "occasional" and stopping altogether since stopping means "not even occasionally" and praising you for your decision to stop. Hmmm, I'm going to go with praise. Good luck knocking the habit _.

I must be getting old - Mountain Dew is enough to make for a painful run/ride. An ice cold beer at the end is a nice reward, though.

I got into road biking last year, originally just to train for a ride for charity. I did the charity ride again this year, so I've stuck with biking since then. Just had the ride this weekend. 112 miles from Sturbridge to Bourne on Saturday, and 80 more from Bourne to Provincetown on Sunday. I didn't push myself hard at all this year because I didn't train nearly enough. I'm gonna try to keep riding to stay in shape now, even though I didn't do that after the big ride was over last year. I generally enjoy it once I'm actually on the bike, but I've just had too much shit going on lately to make the commitment to be on a bike for a few hours a day. Most of the training rides we do are in the 20-30 mile range, with a few up around 50 miles. Depending on how hilly of a ride we're doing, I average anywhere between 15 and 18 mph (usually right around 16, which was approximately my average for the 192 miles this weekend).

That's a solid average for 192 miles. I don't know how I'd do on a road bike, but averaging over 15 mph on my hybrid is a pretty good workout for me now. Definitely room for improvement, though. I haven't told my wife this yet, but I'm eventually going to need both a road and hybrid bike...and I know some people who hit the rough trails, so... :D

Unlike Dooze, I know I am physically capable of riding 12 miles a day without getting those cramps fat people get. But I don't do it everday, maybe 4 times a week, cuz my fuckin legs get tired. I work in a factory all day, I can't exactly be expected to ride 12 miles a day everyday.

See Dooze, that's telling the truth.

i've got some nice hills and trails nearby...been mountain biking since i lived in california (about 14 years now...yikes!)...unfortunately i lived in downtown philly for 8 years in between then and now and fell out of shape, so for the past 3 years i've been trying to work back...usually do 5-10 miles on trails after work every day...plus i'm a volunteer fireman, which can be a pretty sick workout at times

I'll definitely never accuse Bosux of being lazy.

I usually go surfing for an hour or two after work, but that's kind of hit or miss in the summertime. That's really good exercise.
