Are you the one in black? :)

From rAtTLeTrAp on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 09:32:37 from 24.18.125.122

If you're the one in black, it doesn't look like you're winning :)

For your frustrations, I recommend finding a cardio machine that doesn't aggravate the hip and knocking out a 2-3 hour session while listening to the Word. Burn the stress off and feed the soul.

From I Just Run on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 09:58:27 from 67.79.11.242

Ha ha...The one in black pays the price and we wind the bucks :-)

RT,

Great advice. Today was about 80 minutes of just that then 15 minutes on the TM to see how the hip felt. I run the Elliptical at about 210-230 steps per minute and still it take almost 9 minutes to go a mile.

From rAtTLeTrAp on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 10:07:15 from 24.18.125.122

Don't worry about the actual "mileage" just get the heart rate up and put the time in as long as it doesn't hurt. I qualified on very little real running mileage after recovering from a fractured tibia. I spent a lot of hours on the machines at the YMCA and it paid off.

From I Just Run on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 10:16:53 from 67.79.11.242

I have so much trouble keeping my HR up to 150 or above in any exercise besides running. The elliptical and biking use such different muscles, those muscles wear out and I can't keep the HR up...Booo Hooo! I guess I'm just a wimp!

225 Steps per minute (Elliptical) = 125 BPM Avg.

19 MPH Biking 30 Miles (Road Bike) = 135 BPM Avg.

From JG on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 10:20:01 from 71.56.87.5

If I could ride 19 mph at any HR I would be thrilled ... maybe you should train for the Tour de France! :)

From rAtTLeTrAp on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 10:21:06 from 24.18.125.122

After a couple hours your HR should go up as you get tired. The miles you put in after you want to quit are the ones that do the most good :)

From I Just Run on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 10:26:37 from 67.79.11.242

I'm anxious to get back to biking a little more so I can get to 30+ miles @ 20+ MPH....Getting close :-)

From Rye on Tue, Mar 27, 2012 at 21:10:02 from 174.27.67.141

It will all work out. We can get so impatient (runners) Nice pic too! How do you fit all your hobbies in? It makes life fun though!!!

From I Just Run on Wed, Mar 28, 2012 at 08:35:21 from 67.79.11.242

Rye,

I don't spend near as much time with my roping as I used to. That's all I lived and breathed for years... But it's kinda like learning how to play golf early in life, once you've learned how to play, you always have the basic skills. You may loose some of the finesse but you never loose the basics. I'm not at the top of my game right now, but in the catagory I compete in, there's room for some mistakes.
