A Work Out Instead of Beer Drinking

Some of you all who follow my blog have given me some subtle hints that there seem to be more beer drinking than working out be posted to the blog. You are absolutely correct. I haven't hung up the running shoes yet, but since I cancelled the Prague Marathon I haven't been working out much more than some regular PT sessions. I've actually been pretty busy with the PT and we did our PT test the other day and I scored 259 points from 59 push ups (84 pts), 65 sit ups (87 pts), and 14:36 on the 2 mile run (88 pts), not exactly where I would like to be I should have been under 14 min on the run and between 65 and 70 for both the push ups and sit ups.  I'm chalking the run up to it being a chilly morning and never warming up and I just need to do more push ups and sit ups.

I did get out this morning and do a ride.  It ended up raining on me but I still had a good ride.  Here's the data.
