I am starting my second week of the 2015 Winter Miles Challenge. Last week my goal was 10 miles of walk/run/bike! I had 1mile walk, 3 miles walk/run and 22 miles of bike at the Peoria Bicycle Club. I did 26 miles. I set my goal at 10 miles again this week. I won't be able to ride this week as I will be out of town Thursday-Sunday. All of my miles will most likely be walking or running. I did 2.1 miles today with a walk with Sarah Pug! Only 7.9 miles to go. My training plan has been altered based on my life. I am getting the workouts in but not on the days scheduled!
I tried out the Peoria Bicycle Club's indoor trainer ride. I did it Tuesday and then went again Saturday. I did what they call a test ride on Saturday. 26 minutes of warm-up, which if you ask me it was a full workout. Then I had to do 20 minutes, all out, balls to the wall ride. Then I tested out at a 132 level. That establishes what level I will continue to ride at. And since I joined the club and paid for indoor training I will be continuing! Oh and then I bit the BIG BULLET! I bought clip less pedals, cleats and new clip less riding shoes!
Can't wait for my shoes to come in so I can get my pedals put on my bike. The new pedals/shoes should make my rides more effective and efficient. And with the rest of the indoor training season I can get used to getting in and out of the pedals.

My daughter Shelby got sick Thursday night/Friday morning. Since I was the clean up crew, it hit me all day yesterday and this morning. I had the Upper Respiratory Flu starting on Christmas Eve, then it turned into and Upper Respiratory Infection, Double Ear Infection and a Sinus Infection. Then I got the stomach bug. I am reading for all of this crud to be over. Spring can't come soon enough. I'm going to work hard to get my miles in this week. I have to be ready for my race on 2-1-15.
