Breakfast...


That looks like a nice mid morning "snack". I need more protien than though, I'd be starving in an hour. Kashi go lean is breakfast this morning .
if I only had a pair, I could actually ride this thing

And lo, I did loft the front wheel and carried it forth to the unbelievers, and cast it down before them and said unto them ''look now upon the might of my throttle control ye pitiful cretinous ones''
And the unbelievers did quake in their boots....

Preseason to riding I tend to just wake up eat something good and healthy and head straight for a jog. Depending on the day I like to do about 4 to 5 miles. Then hopefully hit the gym and try and work those good ol' forearm muscles to relieve arm pump. But never really be lazy about it or else I loose it quick!

P90X is a great work out.
I have a couple of buddies that are iron men after doing that for about a year.
I'm training for a Tough Mudder run in September.
Don't know what Tough Mudder is?
Check it out:

Can't wait.
Hope my knees, hernia, herniated disc, recovering shoulder and ribs hold out  :-D

Just a rehash.
I'm now up to 2 hour work outs 5 days a week.
1 hour of weights, 1/2 hour tread mill and 1/2 hour swimming.
I can't wait for this spring for some good riding weather.
I'm gonna tear up some sand :-)

Since I'm turning 50 in a few months I even thought about running in some MX old man classes :-)
That just doesn't sound right...

If you keep it up now.... it will be easier to maintain as you get older.
Jacking up my shoulder a couple of years ago almost ended my riding.... not really  :-D
All my friends were asking me if I was going to give it up.
NO WAY MAN!
I was riding again before I got the plates, pin, springs, and exhaust valves out  :-o
