My legs are leaden.

Excuses, excuses. No more.
Starting personal training again. Need to get back to it after a very unpredictable year and a half.
Finally, went jogging for the first time in months! ∞
First day back doing personal training. Going to be sore tomorrow. Feels great to be back at the gym though. ∞
Another 2 mile jog completed this morning. Felt easier physically, but a little more taxing mentally. Not sure why. ∞
Yesterday marked the last day of personal training. Now, to stay committed.
Fleetly is a free workout app that turns exercise into a game and is available in Apple’s IOS App Store. I’ve used it since early January and find it motivating and fun. If they can sort out their technical problems the app would be great. However, that’s not why I’m writing. I’m writing, because Fleetly needs librarians and here’s why.
My mountain bike, which I’ve used as a commuter bike for years, has worn out its welcome. Looking for a replacement, something light, durable, fast, and fun. That removes a lot of so-called commuter/city bikes, as the components seem cheap, and the geometry uninspiring. I tested the Kona Dew and the Giant Seek 2 tonight. The Dew was terrible. Shifting the bike it seemed like something would break a few months down the road. The Seek was better, but hydraulic disk brakes are overkill, and the SRAM shifters were really weird/uncomfortable.
I had thought about trying the Specialized Sirrus, but now am leaning toward a cyclocross bike instead.
People always have goals to get in shape or be healthy. I’m usually pretty good about exercising, but need to recommit to a plan. The MS150 was a great goal for 2009. I don’t have an activity to train for, but would like to keep riding my bike, go back to the boxing gym, start jogging and continue weight lifting.
