2007 Summary and 2008 Beginnings

First let me start with a summary of 2007

Mountain: 1157.66 miles – 117:14:03 – Average Speed 9.9 mph (About 25 miles is missing because of GPS malfunctions)
Road: 132.18 miles – 7:16:15 – Average Speed 18.2 mph
Trainer: 648.52 miles – 43:35:45 – Average Speed 16.2 mph
Total: 1938.36 miles – 168:06:04 – Average Speed 11.8 mph

All in all it was a pretty good year since I spent very little time on the bike from September on.

Now looking forward, I have a lot of work to do. This morning I planned to go to the gym, but my pager went off one minute before my alarm clock. By the time I had the work stuff wrapped up, it was too late to go to the gym. So instead, I did a pre-bedtime ride on the trainer. This is when I realized how far out of shape I have gotten in three months. I rode for 43 minutes using the Carmichael Training System Mountain Bike Racing Video as a guide. I had to stop early because I was beginning to get light headed. Yikes! Oh well, tomorrow is a new day. Probably will sleep in an extra hour tomorrow and try to do a workout tomorrow night.
