Thank you sir, may I have another?


January 2012


That’s one more ride in the book for the week that I could have skipped just as easily.  I’m beginning to believe that I don’t have the attention span for spinning – I never get bored riding but I’m at my wit’s end after ten minutes on a trainer.  I have to work on that.  In any event, this was my fastest spin yet.  I’ve really gotta get a computer so I can track the distance and my speed properly.

A funny thing happened when I hit 40-years-old that is pertinent…  I’ve been running for ten or eleven years now, I’m as fit as an ox (well, maybe something a touch smaller, but you get the point), I’ve passed every physical I’ve ever had with flying colors, my vitals are awesome and I’ve never felt better…  But I still get that little nagging voice in the back of my head that says:

“You know what, son?  You really shouldn’t be pushing this hard at your age”.

This is not one of those that I can brush off as usual, or at least I haven’t found the STFU that works yet.  I keep hoping that over time that little jerk will give up.

If any of you out there have any info on combating this, please leave a comment.
