Weight Training with Mikey V

I love the look on my face in this picture.  It really sums up my entire experience when I weight trained ‘for real’.  This wasn’t something I was planning on getting into, and it isn’t something that I have done over the years.  It just happened.  And it was an amazing experience in body, mind and soul.  Really.

It all started when I needed a place to shower so that I could ride my bike to work.  I found the gym that was closest to my office building, and walked in to inquire about membership.

An unexpected opportunity presented itself.  There was a package that I could buy that included some personal training sessions.  Something inside tugged at me to sign up.  So I did.  I didn’t think about it again until the winter months presented themselves.  I had been working out on my own during lunch hour, and was quickly getting bored.  I was really keen to stay in shape through the winter months so I could enjoy the short cycling season when it finally came again.

Cozy Cool Post Workout Gear

Cycling Ink 2

Post workout, I love to cozy up in something comfortable and warm.  I recently had the opportunity to try out this super cool hoodie from Cycling Ink.  It is definitely warm, and it is definitely cozy.  The inside is super soft.  And for those fellow cyclists out there, the logo is perfect for making sure the world knows that you ride bikes.

If my workout was a good one and I pushed hard, I might need a bit of time to cool down before transitioning to the warmer gear.  If I am smart, I will also take some time to stretch.  For this transition, I would choose something lighter.  I like something with a little room so I can move around and stretch.  Check out this super fun tank, also from Cycling Ink.

Blue T Cropped

Check it out!! With plenty of styles, colors and variations of the logo…there is something for everyone!!!  Tell the world you are a cyclist…make sure they know that you spent hours upon hours training inside on your bike just so you could be super fast when the weather changes!
