At the end of today's wheel spin I earned "100" Points. Never before had I earned that much. So, I go to my Spark Points page and guess what........it shows that I earned "3" points. Boy did I take a beating on that deal. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Chill

There's a chill in the air and I don't like it. Yesterday I rode my bike and it was 59 degrees outside. Not a fun ride for this Texan. Guess we're spoiled. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Sunday, September 26, 2010      2 comments

Last 3 weeks I've made it a point to try real hard to eliminate foods that are not very good for me. I love the little Hershey's chocolate and almonds candies. This coming week, they're off my plate. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Hammerfest Bike Ride

Saturday, September 18, 2010      1 comments

It started not so good. Left my bike computer home. No problem cause I live 5 miles from the starting point and I have 20 minutes before the start. I call Cuchi-Cuchi and ask her to bring me the computer (with a nice please, of course). Fifteen ... Read more

Doing Great

I think that I finally "got it". I'm doing all that I'm supposed to be doing and feeling good about it. Have done away with some of the foods that I love (Peanut butter, cookies, bread) with foods that are good for me (meats, poultry, fish, frui... Read more

Hotter than Hell 100

Saturday, August 28, 2010      3 comments

I trained very hard for this event. I did what I should have done and then some. My goal was to do the ride in under 5 hours. Unfortunately, I rode with a group that was much too fast and I paid the price. The first 2 hours I averaged 22+ miles ... Read more

Not Very Smart

Wednesday, August 18, 2010      3 comments

So, I enter one of Randolph AFB's rest rooms, just prior to the start of my tempo rides. The big dummy that last cleaned and mopped failed to leave a sign indicating that the floor was wet. Man did I go flying in the air. I was so mad. Anyway, I... Read more

A Challenging Ride

Friday, August 13, 2010      3 comments

Today I had scheduled a 5-hour ride as a last ride prior to August 28th's Hotter Than Hell 100 bike ride. The start was great, but the heart rate monitor was not functioning. That was bothersome, but not a ride killer. As I progressed on the rid... Read more

It's Amazing

Saturday, July 31, 2010      6 comments

Had you told me 10 years ago that I would be biking in 90 degree weather for 4.5 hours, I would have told you to see a shrink. It's truly amazing how the body adapts to tough physical requirements. When I began cycling I could barely do 10 miles... Read more
