Good deal Gents!

I will look into how to get some challenges going.

I do know that I can make run and bike challenges separately.

Alright my tires finally came in and the bike's all set. I'll hopefully be starting to put some miles in Strava starting tomorrow!

We are counting on you.

I’m out for the week. Might try a long run tomorrow and Sunday.

Using this down time to start on the “Get this stuff done or no golf when it opens” list done...

The list is extremely long...

I'm in. Just be aware 99% of my activity will be on the bike, so my miles will look disproportionate to you runners. I do run every now and then, but that's mostly a winter activity for me, now past.

I hate running.  I do it.  But I'm not a fan :). But the bike...  I have a a serious N+1 problem :).

Looks like I'll have to manually add my distance each day. Fitbit can't export the type of file needed. Oh well, I put in last weeks walks.

IIRC, with Fitbit, you have to connect it manually on the Strava side.

Confirm that you are recording a GPS exercise if using Fitbit (only exercises with GPS on Fitbit will be sent to Strava).

I think this is what I forgot to do.... you have to turn on GPS on the fitbit app and tell it what type of exercise you're doing....

There's the rub, I use a treadmill with hill intervals, so GPS won't show anything.

Dude, you spelled that wrong.  It's DREADmill.  Not Treadmill.  I have no idea where the word treadmill came from but it is a bald faced  lie along the lines of the check is in the mail.\ and I'm from the government and I'm here to help

I actually like it because I'm not out in the cold and snow, plus I stick the TV on and it makes the miles go faster.

BTW, I AM with the government, but I'm not here to help!

I just get unbearably bored with treadmills. At the gym, all of the TVs are just on the news or nature shows but running makes it feel way more repetitive than it is. Somehow, my wife can watch a whole movie on the treadmill. She's an animal but I can't hold my attention that long and the loudness of the treadmill makes it hard to concentrate. It's just too easy to hit that one button and take a step off.

One thing I like about running outside is there's no "stop" button and you're done. Get sick of running outside? You've still gotta make your way home. The elements are a nice change of pace.

I did a 10k on a treadmill once. Last time I’ve stepped on one. The only reason I made it through is because The Open was live. Was at work, and wanted to watch it.... so in the gym on the treadmill I watched while burning some calories.

Ok, so I blew a tyre on my bike and can't get it fixed yet so walking it is. Also I am having my hip operation on May the 4th so that's me out for a couple of weeks. It's been fun so far but a couple of you guys are killing it!!

Tried a run yesterday. Made it 5 steps in, time to focus on yoga. I felt like my legs were in full leg casts. Not good.

I may not be able to keep up with @Siamese Moose and his huge mileage but I'm happy to be back into cycling gang with this purchase:

AC818E37-B935-49F1-8C8B-E29A8851C291.jpeg

 

It's not the fanciest or highest tech but it's perfectly fit to me and a great entry road bike so I'm looking forward to putting in some comfortable miles. The entire fitting process was awesome. As important as fitting is in golf equipment, it's just as or more important in bikes since an improper fit doesn't just lead to wipey fades but it can cause actual injury. 

Since many of you may not ever go through it, here's a quick rundown....

There's no way I could've done it myself that's for sure. Lots of technology and measurements. The beginning was mostly small talk while he measured me with all kinds of different tools and tested flexibility. 

After the fact finding and measurements taking,  he brought out a bike, made some minute adjustments, and put me up on it with a stationary lock. Then placed some sticker dots at my main joints (similar to the dots you'd use on your club face for trackman) and filmed while I rode. 

This video turned into a software output with lines connecting all of my joints. The lines figured angle measurements to see where my body positions measure up to ideal numbers, not unlike a trackman. Using that, he made more subtle tweaks that were actually noticeable. 

Fun fact: Through the body measurements he figured I could benefit from insoles too since the arch on my left foot collapses. That was an unexpected discovery but explains my knee pain. They don't sell insoles but he recommended some good ones that I ordered. 

There was more to it but I thought this provided a good overview. We tried 2 other bikes to get a feel for differences including some outside rides on their demo path but the first bike ended up being just right for me. I'm lucky that my unique dimensions fit one of the clearance bikes too.

It reminded me a lot of my first iron fitting. You get on the technology and learn things about yourself that you never considered while being evaluated by a competent professional. And in both cases, you get a shiny new thing at the end!

 

PS: the whole thing was done with great care and attention to COVID precautions. I came in before business hours, just the two of us, both wearing face masks, gloves for me, and regular disinfecting of touch points.

Don't let my mileage freak you out! I've been racing since I was 17, and am currently putting in my volunteer time as the President of the racing team. After having had three straight seasons cut short due to injury I'm finally getting to ride as much as I want. I'm lucky that cycling for exercise is an encouraged behavior during quarantine, and I'm focused on getting back a lot of the endurance I've lost. With no races currently I'm emphasizing base endurance over power work, so that means more miles. I hope that when races come back that I return to being competitive in my age group (60-64), as well as able to hang with the non-elite youngsters.

Great move to do the fit before picking a bike! With the tools available to fitters, it's amazing how efficient the modern process is.

I used to race in my 40’s......centuries, road races, criterium, even double centuries and Cross Florida(170 miles in one day). Shattered my left wrist on ice skates in 1998. Recently bough5 a couple recumbent trikes for my wife and myself. Slowly getting back into riding.

Gorgeous ride, and excellent review of the fitting process!

Very timely and helpful too - after 2 weeks of pretty solid rides on my Specialized Hardrock, I've got consistent low back pain and some numbness in my right arm after about 20 mins of riding. At first I chalked it up to not having had enough time on the bike, but a good friend who used to ride competitively and still bikes a few hundred miles per week had me send him a video of me riding. He immediately responded that it looked like the bike was too small for me. I bought it used 9 years ago and was never fitted, so it's not surprising. 

My wife wants me to go pick out a bike for Father's Day for myself as an early gift, however all the shops up here are pretty much curbside only so I'm going to have to wait to get fitted. I'm having a bit of sticker shock looking at some of the prices, to be honest. Fingers crossed I can find a closeout or gently used bike that will fit me. I'm leaning more toward hybrid than road bike at this point, however we'll see what the shop fitter says once I'm able to get there. Maybe later this month? We'll see how things go up here in MA.
