It was a very productive week. My biking went well. However, today I planned on an 80-miler but had to stop at 65 miles. The temperatures kept climbing into the 90's and my body was not reacting well to it. I thought that perhaps I should listen... Read more

So far, the month has not been kind. The weight has not moved and the nutrition needs a bit of help. So, for May we're gonna shake up the "bod" a bit by changing the workout routine. We're gonna bike 4X weekly and do strength training 3X weekly,... Read more
