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 toContinue reading “Tallac”
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 injuriesContinue reading “Getting older but better”
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. IContinue reading “284 TSS this week…”
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 stateContinue reading “In the eyes of others”
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. IContinue reading “More than Zero”
That title might lead you to believe that this will be some post about how much difference my newly lost weight has made in my riding, but that would be untrue, as to the best of my knowledge, I’ve not lost an ounce off my fat ass post surgery. I’ve been doing physical therapy andContinue reading “Power and Weight”
I’ve never cared before, but post surgery, I’m recovering very slowly, and I know it will be a long while before I’m that fast again. ☹️. But, I find it strangely motivating. I guess that’s why people get so worked up about it huh?
Kyle’s Fat Bottom Cosmic Stallion Road with Campagnolo Chorus 11 | The Radavist Go see it – it’s lovely.
I’ve been putting this off for months, actually for over a year, but I’ve finally gotten it scheduled and today is the day. It’s not a big procedure, but the injury itself and subsequent secondary injuries have had a huge impact on my core strength, to the point of having basically zero core specific trainingContinue reading “Surgery day”
My baby girl (actually my oldest daughter) got home from Germany last night, which put us all back here under the same roof for the first time in a while. It’s a great feeling, though everyone is still on different clocks, and since some of us are sick, it’s even more exacerbated. Myself and theContinue reading “Third day of the year (or day 3 of my slow death)”
