  • I’ve become a bit of a wrench…

    I usually charge a bag of coffee beans…

  • Finally some long overdue bike content…

    The oldest boy and I spent some time this weekend setting up an older Cannondale V500 for a friend who’s daughter will use it as secondary transportation at college. The bike was apparently picked up at a pawn shop a few years ago, and then languished in the garage as a well intentioned attempt to […]

  • Carson

    This is the second time I’ve done this workout, the first time I skipped the coaching notes and did it all at 90+ rpm. Tonight I listened to ol Chad and did it at 75 with the standing drills. It was harder for sure, but still no where near as hard as some of the […]

  • 2018, not the year I wanted, but the year I deserved…

    I spent quite a few years (most of my adult life) not taking care of myself properly. That is not to say I didn’t exercise, actually quite the opposite, I drove myself harder than I should have, much harder. I pushed through numerous injuries, I didn’t listen to physical therapists, I blew off treatment. In […]

  • Saturday Night Funtime

    I have to say that I feel kinda bad about wearing my “Belgian the fuck up”socks for an indoor ride, but it is winter in Texas, so suck it. I also bought a heater for the pain cave. 🙂 It’s about 37 degrees here, which is cold enough to be legit cold, but not enough […]

  • Tallac

    I sagged right in the middle again, but I finished pretty strong. At one point I looked up and had a sudden fear that I had a whole other interval to go, but then I realized it was the history file rather than the workout file. I didn’t know if my legs were up to […]

  • Getting older but better

    Observations on age and improvement…like wine but less red… It wasn’t that long ago that I could ride 300 miles a week, drink hard on Friday and Saturday nights and still knock back a century on Sunday. Those days are over. Definitively, and for many reasons. I’ve had a few real and long lasting injuries […]

  • 284 TSS this week…

    I think that’s ok for now. That’s a few rides, one on the trainer, the rest in the heat, and I feel every bit of it right now (but in a good way). Training Peaks this morning says “based on your form, your body may need extra rest today”, no argument from me lady. I […]

  • In the eyes of others

    Ive been thinking lately about the need to get my riding back on track, if for no other reason than I’m turning into a large mammal. As significant as that is, it’s really secondary to my bigger concern, it’s mostly for my mental health. I’ve definitely felt the impact of not riding in my state […]

  • More than Zero

    I finally got back on the bike after the hip freak out a few weeks ago. I absolutely felt the weight of not riding for so long, but as the title says, it was more than zero. I took advantage of the chill training to sort my power meter and sync my new HRM. I […]
