OK. While I firmly believe that cycling is the greatest sport in the universe, it is widely known that it's not a total body workout. Since I'm starting to creep into middle age I've been confronted with the depressing knowledge that I'm not as fast as I used to be nd the only way I can even stay close is through core training and (shudder) strength training. I hate lifting weights. I cannot even begin to describe how much I hate lifting weights. Mon-Sat, I drag my lazy butt out of bed at 5 in the morning for either core or strength workouts. My dog loves this, it means an extra walk, not to mention me layng in the middle of the florr which is prime posistion for her to jump me. Anyway, I have mentioned how much I hate lifting weights right? Well, I hate to admit this, this stuff does work. I feel so much stronger on the bike. Maybe I should've done this earlier(well, I definitely should've) and I would've done better at my first few attempts in the world of ultramtb races, Better late than never. Also, I have to give major kudos to power yoga and pilates. This stuff is also amazing. Also, as long as I'm giving props...if you haven't tried FRS Plus yet..give it a try if you can amazing stuff. Works great. Anyway, thats enough for the day. Yall have fun today.
