      The heat index caused me to dehydrate pretty bad during my ride. Severe case of muscle spasms kept me in bed for over an hour. Even though I drank three electrolyte drinks, ate about six bananas and drank lots of fluids I couldn't keep from cramping every time I tried to get up. Finally used some ice packs just so I could get out of bed. Afraid I'm going to have to skip my power yoga class tonight.

      I wouldn't mind having one of these in my home gym but since there are two L.A. Fitness centers close to my home, one 7-8 miles away and one 3 miles away with a third opening soon approx 1 mile away I don't see the need to order one just yet.

      Wore cycling gloves this time because I still have a blood blister on my thumb from Monday nights class. Paced myself a little better but still had to start my cool down a little earlier than the rest of the class. I'm LOVING it though!!!

      It has become obvious to my why these classes are so popular. The instructors do a great job of both motivating you and fitting you properly. They also don't push to what they think you can handle but encourage you to push yourself. They use the Keiser M3 bikes and if the day ever comes to get an indoor bike this will be the one.

    Had to get 4 miles for 500 monthly miles. Felt good to loosen up from yesterday's spin class.

    In a word...damn! Next time I won't forget my water.

      A word to recumbent riders joining a spin class. There are a lot of large muscles that are used in both upright cycling and recumbent cycling. There are a few different muscle groups used in one or the other. A spin class bike resembles an upright time trial road bike and the different muscles quickly come out of hiding. Unfortunately since the bent legs are strong in some areas you can get an impressive cadence and really get a good pace but before long the lesser used muscles begin to rebel.

      At one hour I was at 28.8 miles. My pace quickly dropped just before the cool down. I think dehydration played a part but the discovery of overtaxed muscle groups played a bigger part.

      For the first time we crossed Rouse street to see what was over there. It was interesting but probably not enough to make a habit out of it.

      Short ride today. Started earlier but noticed 2 broken spokes on rear tire. Called around and ended up driving to VCS in Cocoa and came home and swapped the tire for the 1.75 Travel Contact I had laying around since wheel was off.

      The Travel Contact 1.75 is a slightly smaller version of the tire I had before the Durano. The other contact was 2" wide and was a great ride but proved too wide on turns as it would get chain slap. The 1.75 is better. The Durano is more of a racing tire and works better with Duranos up front. It is still in good shape and I will get two more in 20" so I can swap from tour to speed.

    More stretching than cardio. Figured out that I'm about as limber as a rock.

      Yoga class tonight was the "relaxing" style rather than Power Yoga. Slower pace but the stretching is more intense. Must be what I needed because I was sure wishing it was the Power Yoga class.

      Was cloudy throughout the ride and some thunder shortly after I got home. Cleared up and sunny later so Rita and I went for a nice 10 miler to get a little sun and fresh air.

      Actually later when the sun came out the humidity went down so it's often a crap shoot. As in getting ready for a ride and the clouds open up and it rains really hard, thunder & lightning and your left inside mumbling, "crap....shoot."
