So I made a sort of resolution back at the end of November when I talked about biking. Ok, not really a resolution so much (after all it was not new years, and who actually keeps a new years resolution past January 14th anyway) as a committment to try to be in better physical shape. So I set a goal of putting in 62 miles in the month of January either biking or walking or some sort of activity.
We bought a new Elipitcal machine in November also so that along with the bike and the treadmill gives me no excuse for variety and weather. Plus I got a new GPS unit (a Garmin Nuvi 205) that helps track both Biking and Walking as well as the normal Driving mode. So combining all of that I figured I better keep to my commitment and post some results to help keep me honest.
Oh and I made my 'dec-anual' appointment with the doctor as well for late in January so by the end of this month I should really know what sort of run down jungle overgrown temple my body has become. Not that there is anything wrong with a over grown temple hidden in the jungle. King Louie did quite well there, and I know the secret of man's red flower.

For the rest of the tracking I will use the 2009Log.
One thing I am trying hard to do is have my ride times home the same length of time as my ride times to work. If I can keep that up after a full 8 hour day I think I am in decent shape.
Notice that big lag there in the middle of the month? 13 days in between rides did a number on my knees today (27th) this is the first time I have really felt the effects of riding. Closing in on the end of the month and I have 1 more day planed to ride to work and meet my goal. Not sure if I have a goal for February yet.
