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

A pretty complete day yesterday. Substituted in an elementary school, did my speed intervals, did some grocery shopping, and hugged my Honey several times. Life just doesn't get much better. HOOAAA!!... 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

Valentine's Day this year was very special. My wife and I decided to renew our wedding vows at church. What an incredible private ceremony. Although the ceremony was opened to all members of the church, we were the only ones present so, it turne... Read more

To say that yesterday was a disaster would be a gross under-statement. Things just didn't go according to plans. I had my breakfast and headed out to my Time Trial location nice and early in the morning. I set up the newly built-up time-trial bi... Read more

So farm this week has been super. I did my hill repeats and my speed intervals. My bike mechanic transformed my old bike into a TT bike for $275. Tried it yesterday and it worked just fine. Can't wait until Saturday's time trials to see if it he... Read more

A really successful day yesterday. Did my weekly 5k, 10k, 20k, and 40k time trials and dropped my overall time more than 15 minutes. I attribute the improvement to the speed intervals and hill repeats that I'm doing during the week. Of course th... Read more

Feel very strange. My new plan calls for today (Friday) being a rest day in preparation for tomorrow's very demanding 5K, 10K, 20K, and 40K time trials. I'm just not used to scheduled rest days and am lost at the sight of not being on my bike fo... Read more

Yesterday was perhaps the best day, so far this year. I was cleaning out my closet and was trying out some of the trousers that I have not worn for years. Would you believe that I fit into all of them. I even had to throw out some of the trouse... Read more

Nutritional intake was good yesterday. Did some gut-wrenching hill repeats and boy was I beat when I finished. But, it's all worth it and part of the big plan. I'm motivated, focused, and very happy with myself. HOOAAA!!... Read more

I'm truly blown away by what you can accomplish with a bit of focus and self-discipline. I started January with a long-term goal of eating and exercising smarter. My weight was at a hefty 195 and I hoped to make it to 185. Yesterday's weigh-in s... Read more

Nutrition and exercise was good yesterday. The ride was particularly challenging because of the high winds. Normally I would have ridden on the trainer, but I'm so focused on my goals that I must do it on the bike unless it's impossible. Lookin... Read more
