    Good job! New personal best

    Well for me at least. I been on the trainer everyother day. Usually only for 20 minutes. Tonight, i put in a good cd, Avenged Sevenfold, and set my goal. I went beyond it and ended up at 30 minutes. For me that is a big deal. I would turn up the resistance on the heavy parts of a song, and lower it when it melowed out. So from now on it will be for 30 minutes, till i push it higher. I read on here people doing it for 45+ One day Ill be there. I would defantly would rather be on the trail

    Oh and on a side note, I lost 4 lbs in about 1.5 weeks

    congrats on the weight loss--usu I only do 50 minutes at a time --but occasionally do 90 minutes. In Iraq I frequently got between 2 and 4 hours in on a trainer session.

    Did you take your bike/trainer to Iraq? If so, how'd you get it there? I may be needing some advice for this.

    As for the trainer question.....Good job on the workouts, as you stick to it, you will find that your time on the trainer will increase. I have a couple training DVD's I watch. Those keep me on the trainer for an hour each, then for the lower HR rides, I will watch a few of my MTB DVD's, such as Roam, Red Bull Rampage, or Off Road to Athens. Those usually keep me on the bike for no less than 45 minutes but up to 90 minutes. I can stand no longer than that.

    no--although I've heard of some that pack their bikes up in a unit connex. I should have clarified--it was on spinning and stationary and stationary recumbant bikes. All 3 gyms on Kirkuk Airbase had a nice selection.

    Yea, listen to Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Aerosmith, or something?
    I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

    In case no one has told you this week, thanks for all that you did for us overseas. My family appreciates it.

    Well its either that or some slipknot. But its in my Jeep, it mellows me out after a bad day at work. While Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Aerosmith are good, they tend to put me asleep.


    Ill defantly keep at it. Thanks for the good words.


    ArmySlowRdr, Thanks for all you done while in Iraq
