The long cycle was an interesting education opportunity for me. I haven’t really done these before. The weight is easy, it’s the aerobics that are hard. When I hit my 225, I think I’m going to reduce the amount of rowing but take advantage of the pairs of kettlebells at the gym and work the long cycle. At some point I have to move up to 32K, that should bring the strength aspect more into play.

On my way to the gym I drove past a tire. Then I backed up to the tire. Then I threw it in the back. It looks like it belongs on one of the dump trucks that run around this area a lot. It’s probably three feet or more in diameter. It’s a little deeper than a regular car tire but it appears to be blown out on one side and very sturdy on the other. It’s large enough to be a challenge to store but it’s gonna be fun to play with.

    I have found very little carry over from the long cardio sessions to the 10 minute kettlebell sessions. I like the long cardio for peace of mind and burning calories.

    The tire sounds sweet.

    Oh, it’s definitely a very different beast. I was just frustrated ’cause i ran out of air really fast but felt like I had a lot left in me strength wise.
    I hope to get many hours of fun and stare of confusion out of the tire.
