Will be heading for Pflugerville today in preparation for the year's first ride, the Rosedale 100K. I have a certain sense of loyalty for the ride because it was my very first organized ride five years ago. I'll be staying with my son and enjoyi... Read more

This past week was both sad and exhausting, but it finally ended yesterday with the funeral and burial of a super lady. My poor wife barely made it, but I'm so very proud of her. This week, we must get back on the fitness trail so as to make up ... Read more

Picked 12 hills and climbed each an average of 3 times. Finished with 40 climbs. What a bear!! I'm so glad I only do that once weekly. Why do they have to hurt so much? I certainly hope that they make me better, handsomer, smarter, and richer. ... Read more

In Spite of not being able to Time Trial, the day was truly a happy one. Took off from biking to see my Cuchi-Cuchi and son compete in a 10K run. The course is really hilly so, they both knew that a challenge lay ahead. As they started, I couldn... Read more

Hill repeats are just not much fun. They just whoop me. But, they're good for you so, I have to keep doing them. 40 hill climbs is a bunch of climbing. My competition is just not gonna know what to do when I fly up those hills. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Yesterday's time trials were great. My times improved by over a total of 3 minutes, but more importantly, I overcame the desire to cut it short. As I finished doing the 5, 10, and 20K trials, I was pretty tired and all set to call it a day. Howe... Read more

Did the hill repeats and boy did that kick butt. I know they're good for you, but do they have to hurt so much? The rest of the day was a good one. My calorie intake was good and my energy level was equally good. The Doctor indicated that my phy... Read more

This past week was not the greatest. First off, I was off the bike Monday thru Thursday due to my New York trip. Secondly, while in NY, my sister made life difficult by fixing me some old-time favorite heart-stopping meals. And thirdly, I just d... Read more

I'm in New York visiting my Mom. Got up early and went for a nice walk with snow on the ground and temperatures in the 20's. Not bad at all. The movement kept me nice and warm. Different from Texas weather, but very doable. HOOAAA!!... Read more
