The Challenge: To complete a 3 month indoor bicycle training program starting Monday, November 7, 2011. I have chosen this program. It will not be easy. My goal is to stick to this program as closely as I am able. This is going to be extra challenging for me to maintain this program through the Christmas and holiday season. I should finish just before Super Bowl.
What I will use to train: This is my $99 Zellers special. Not pretty but she will get me through this.
Why? This is a seasons worth of cheap entertainment, with purpose, and I suspect that my experience here will be rich in material for my blog.
Second reason of why: my parents are buying me snow shoes for Christmas (Shhh! Don't tell me!) and I want to be fit enough to be able to use them without the need of a standby Emergency Medial Technician complete with defibrillator. There's a lofty goal. No cardiac arrest!
Fair Warning to all: I will likely complain- even if I am enjoying myself. I try to be all Miss Mary Sunshine but my inner snark is a monstrous beast that could eat Miss Mary for a snack and still eat a truckers lunch afterwards.
Executive Summary- for those of you pressed for time:
- I'm going to be spending a lot of quality time with my rusty old bike over the next 3 months.
- Ultimate goal- no cardiac arrest. Ever.
- If I happen to lose a few pounds while doing this it won't hurt my feelings.
- I'll tell you how I am doing. Expect some sass. :)
Wish me luck!
