Everyone starting to get their bodies in order for the 2013 season?

MSC (TxRiver, Kyle, Tex) jumped out and started the season for us on Jan 1.

Koodos to those doing p-therapy on injuries and surgeries. 8 more weeks and the folks in the southern states - "Florida - don't count " will be running hopefully.

My calendar countdown is 57 days to my first outing. Hope we get some much needed rain. A good blizzard or 2 in the midwest would be good to get some water on the ground. Hopefully ongoing drought will cease and we'll all have good water.

What strength builders and flexibility exercises are y'all doing... couch curls don't count?

Trying to kill the tgiving and xmas gut before I start aerobic again but doing another round of p90x just sticking to the non aerobic exercises. Amazing what an extra 20lbs will do to your knees and ankles. Strict bs diet that sucks. Kicked sodas, fried, and sweets to the curb. 5 meals a day and 1800 cal max

190-183.5 so far in the past 6 weeks. Not huge but I'm hitting a lb a week which should get me to my prime 175 by riding time.

Yep, much colder and no snow to play in.

Muscle buildup would offset that however as the back increases in strength and holds the spinal column better.

I have no medical training and just an engineer talking out my backside.

Unless of course shoulders arms legs were worked and core was not worked...then not so much right?

I get my medical training from staying at a Holiday Inn...
