    I'm pretty lucky I know - no movement at all below the knee on one leg and about 4/5 for hammie and gluts on that side. The BB issues don't really effect ability on a bike. I can walk with an AFO and a bad limp but not very far and not very fast. Since I was told that I was unlikely to recover much more and realised my other sports were no longer an option I have really thrown myself into the cycling scene and have amazed myself sometimes how far I have come. The race on the weekend I maintained a HR around 168-174 for over an hour (I am 41 yo female with a max HR of 180) - a year ago it would have been 145 if I was lucky.

    I am really jealous of your snow though - the forecast here is for 33-35C for the next week or so and the heat really knocks me around.
    right on! may i inform you that you totally kick ass! i raced bikes rabidly for 20yrs and miss it quite allot! not all just snow here. we can drop 4000ft in 25 miles. i got in a 4.5 hour ride in yesterday on my one-off handcycle in the beautiful red rock desert of sedona - it put me on the couch. i'll post some pics tonight here: www.coconinocycles.blogspot.com keep kicking ass - all of you! steve.

      Love your work Steve! I got sucked into the whole carbon fibre thing (I do love my Pinarello though - sweet bike) but starting to look at some of the custom made-to-measure steel road bikes out there and some of them really are beautiful bikes. Not that much heavier than the carbon fibre but the guys swear by them in terms of ride quality and they last forever. Maybe one day.....

        sunday
        1 hr tromp through the snow with the puppies.
        10 min elliptical
        20 min strength training
        10 min treadmill - speed 2.0 - first time I have had it that fast.
        harness on for treadmill and elliptical

        I tried the trekking poles for walking in the snow but didn't work out. I guess I put more weight on my right crutch than I thought because I kept falling over that way. Maybe next year.

          Alex - good work on increasing to '2.0' on the treadmill. Did you ever figure out if it were km or miles?
          I am sorry the trekking poles didn't work - YET - next year you will revisit them and who knows?
          T Bone - what do you do for cardio if you are not playing BBall?

          My report -

                  nothing - since Sunday. I have been feeling bad. It's so cold here and it just makes me tired. But I am going to try hard to go to the gym tomorrow.

                    Back tonight. Not sure if I'll try deads or not, my hip is sore and last week, even after warming up my lumbar was sore and left foot tingly.

                    But it's such a good strength builder i hate to give it up entirely.

                      Back to basics.... 20 mins glut/hip and core strengthening - kneeling using a swiss ball seems to work well. 20 mins stretching.

                      45km bunch ride (cycling)

                      Also raced in our state criterium championships a couple of days ago - in my masters age category I beat myself in the sprint for the gold medal (yep, no others in my cat. LOL)

                            I have not been checking in here daily but have been to the gym 5 days a week for the last couple of weeks now. Mostly upper body stuff. I want to get back on the handcycle soon.

                            I've been trying to lose some weight for many reasons, one of which is to try mono-skiing. I'm bulking up some from going to the gym. Gained 4lbs in two weeks.

                              Glad you are not slacking off My395. What is your plan to lose weight?
                              Alex - how well and what happens when you climb stairs. I have to hold on to a bannister and use a lot of upper body. I used to try to work out by doing stairs, but the next day, I had big time leg pain so I backed off. Gravity must be pretty strong here in Nevada

                              Today -
