I have been cycling the past few days to work and not running. The total calories burned since I started this quest on June 5th is 8000 colories. see the stats here http://runkeeper.com/user/GerryCarew/profile
I am entering a very tricky time in my training schedule as I am going out of province on vacation for two weeks in Manitoba and Saskatchewan to see some family and old friends. I am worried that it will be difficult to keep up a training routine. I encourage you to come back to see how I am dealing with this.
