I'm struggling to keep my self-discipline on target. With so much food and so many other temptations. I will probably not do well. Guess the holidays are controlling me. HOOAAA!!... Read more

It's been a real slow day today. Woke up with some heavy raining outside. Decided to skip the biking and get my wheel looked at. It apparently needed an inner cleaning. My good spare Zipp 101 real wheel has developed some bad cracks. The latter ... Read more

Christmas Cards

Thursday, December 18, 2014      3 comments

Had to put it all (or almost all) to the back burner yesterday. Primary mission: do the Christmas cards. It took hours to address the envelopes by hand (Apple doesn't have a program that I can use to have labels), stuff the envelopes with the ca... Read more

It was indeed a beautiful day yesterday. Temperatures in the 70's and the sun was out. A great day for a bike ride. Am attempting to eliminate peanut butter from my diet. It's very habit forming, for me. I just can't seem to hold back my desires... Read more

Had a bike ride scheduled yesterday, but another flat spoiled the fun. Decided to switch wheels and put in some really heavy and longer lasting inner tubes. Discovered that what was causing some of the flats was a rear on the side of my almost n... Read more

It's Saturday morning and a very dreary day. There's fog in the air so, visibility is not too good. Dangerous for cyclists. Especially me cause I don't have lights in the front of the bike. So, I'll just have to wait until it clears up a bit. Bu... Read more

Christmas Shopping

Friday, December 12, 2014      4 comments

I detest shopping in crowded places. It is for that reason that I shop at nice stores and avoid the K-mart/Walmarts of the world. In our house, the shopping for presents is mostly done by the Boss Lady. While she dislikes shopping, she doesn't t... Read more

It's been an interestg December 2015, so far. While I haven't been real bad with my nutritional choices, it has not been real pretty. Thand God that the only thing that's on course, so far, is my cycling. If it weren't for that, I'd be in deep t... Read more

Have you had one of those where you just don't feel like doing it?? Today was my day. Just didn't want to get with the program. I persevered and did what I was supposed to do. Sure felt good. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Oh Christmas Tree

So, yesterday was the day to put up our Christmas tree. My wonderful wife has a thing about lights. She LOVES those little goodies. Every year we put oodles of lights on the tree. It's a major undertaking. This year I decided to count how many l... Read more

Pretty physically active day yesterday. Walked/trained the dogs; cycled for 2.5+ hours; and put up outside christmas lights. Would somebody please give me an AMEN?? HOOAAA!!... Read more

Two weeks ago while riding in West Texas (City of Alpine), on very rough roads, I noticed that my, rear tire was getting flat. Sure enough, a flat tire (#1). Today I took off for what would have been a challenging long hill repeat workout. As I ... Read more

I see it, I read it, I deplore it. So often we limit our performance simply because of our age. I hear such things as: "People my age just don't exercise that way"; "That's way too strenuous"; "At my age, I should be on the couch watching a good... Read more

This AM looks like a perfect day for a ride. Temperatures in the 50's and very little wind. Just love those days. Just got my power meter calibrated so, hope that a;; works out well with the data gathering. I find that power meters are the real ... Read more

It was indeed a chilly day. Wind chill brought temperatures into the mid-30's. The schedule called for 6 long hill climbs. The ride stopped before it began. I had a flat tire. Five minutes later, we were on the road. The climbs were challenging ... Read more
