2014 Ride #25 (HOW Endurance Cruise)

Some people say that if it isn’t on Strava, it didn’t happen. But thankfully, it’s on Training Peaks. Rolled over the 500 mile mark for the year. Last year, it was June. Current weight: 208.8 lbs (94.7 kg). 2014 mileage: 500.1 miles (804.77 km).


2014 Ride #24 (HOW High Cadence)

When I saw the workout tonight, I thought, “Hey, that’s not too bad”; especially since based on what Dave said last week, I was anticipating a power test on Wednesday. Well, no power test on Wednesday … most likely because of all the racing going on this weekend, between the first ICUP race and the […]


2014 Ride #23 (Emigration+Sheffield Loop)

First Emigration climb of the year … that was kind of painful, but it’s only February; I still have 4 1/2 months to get ready for the Col du Crush. It’s kind of funny … I feel like I’m putting in more of an effort during my (whopping 3 so far) outdoor rides than I […]


2014 Ride #22 (Plug Pulled)

Double checked the planned workout. Didn’t see migraine or the dry heaves listed, so pulled the plug and came home. Current weight: 208.0 lbs (94.3 kg). 2014 mileage: 429.7 miles (691.54 km).

The Return of Poetry Friday?

O Me! O Life! Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring, Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish, Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?) Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the […]


2014 Ride #21 (HOW Tempo+Surge)

I should have never wound my cadence up to 189 during the Rockefeller Skank … but I couldn’t resist; and I definitely paid the price afterwards. But it’s about enduring pain and getting stronger, right? Current weight: 208.8 lbs (94.7 kg). 2014 mileage: 423.5 miles (681.48 km).
