Today I started my upper body workout to train for bike racing. Then I ran again for the 4th time this week. Now I'm tired. tomorrow I'm going for a 40 mile bike ride since it will be nice out. This is one of the critical moments when starting something new. I'm starting to see how hard my commitment really is. This is gong to be a lot of fun, but also my body willl be going through a lot of changes. I'm going to stay on this workout schedule for the next seven weeks: Bike, Run, Upper body workout daily with one day off per week. then I'll try to change it.
Now I'm off to bed. Exhausted. haha. And why am I doing this?

Wow. You are really committed to this racing idea. I actually didn't think you were altogether serious. Anyway, what you're doing sounds great, and I'm looking forward to reading about your progress. If you're getting studded tires just for the icebike races, you're more than welcome to borrow mine for the day if you have a bike that can fit a 700x45. That'll save you a few bucks. On the downside, mine aren't the super aggressive ice racing tires, but they worked pretty darned good for me the other day.
