Lower Body and PT excercises

Swim this morning and tonight I start an 8 week Vision Quest cycling class.  I think tonight will be a power test.  If I can make it through the test without puking I'll be happy.  I haven't been on my bike much as evident by my logs.

Not sure what I'm going to do today.  I have Cubs tickets for tonight. I may try and get a quick 3 mile run in before the game.  Otherwise it will be another day off. 
 

Sunday - July 26

Nothing today.  Was going to go ride, but woke up walked the dog and my wife and I decided to go get brunch instead.   I start a new bike class on Wednesday at Vision Quest.  They should kick my butt back into shape.
