Log those milesa! What are you, some kind of purist?

OK Steve. I'm now recording my cross training miles. I will crush everyone on the mileage board this week.

Probably not Jake...

bike miles are tough because you get really inflated miles if you count them 1 for 1. In terms of time it is probably a 2.5 to 1 ratio but effort can vary from .5 to 1 to 10 to 1.

That's the idea Fritz - to inflate my mileage.

Tomorrow I'll be swimming for about an hour so it will even out.
