    I'll join you. I've read this book several times but in all fairness, haven't followed her plan. I'll have to adapt it to the trainer soon though, as the weather is turning lots colder here.

    I'll join. I think I'll have to do just about all of the weekday rides on the trainer -- there are quite a few one hour rides and with an hour long commute each way, I leave the house for work before dark and get home after dark and I just don't feel comfortable riding in the dark that long. I'm game to try it though! I'll have to stock up on videos or something since I find just 30 minutes on the trainer painful!

    I read this book on my ipad while recovering from an injury (when I couldn't ride). I'll break it out this weekend and skim it again so I'll be ready on Monday.

    OK , first day. Liking the rest day! LOL, my weight in is 320lbs. My bike is ready and I picked up a trainer off of CL for $30. I have a gym membership so bring on tomorrow.

    Just to clarify, the name of the book is Ride Your Way Lean. Focus on *lean* and fit instead of *thin*. Semantics to some but an important distinction for many of us, including, I would guess, Ms. Yeager.

    It's a good book and a very doable program. I tried the century schedule but got side tracked. I wish you much success!

    I ignored the total rest day and did a leisurely two-hour ride this afternoon. It got up to 77 today, and we won't have many more days like this in ND until spring! My starting weight is 143 (ten pounds more than I was just a year ago) so I'm doing the "Lose a dress size or more" routine.

    I'm enjoying that today is a rest day ....because my bike is in the shop :-) Here's hoping they finish it today (they think they might) or I'm likely in the gym on a spin bike tomorrow.

    It is a book that has a set of plans to help you get lean. Also In top riding shape! it does not have a set food plan but helps you under stand what and when to eat to get the most out of your work outs.You can get the book in soft cover or a ebook.

    I'd like to try this too, though am too overwhelmed with life right now. First I will start with deciding if I want to buy the book, or start down the electronic reader path. I'll be following along with this thread though. Thanks for starting it!

    Selene is my fav inspirational athlete- she is amazing- down to earth and "real"...her blog is online and in bicycling magazine:

    Good luck to all you ladies with this! If I remember correctly, the best part of this book (and all her writing) is the focus on having fun!

    I love to have the book in hand and a highlighter ready. I have already highlighted some of the best parts and important info.
