Rest Day Today

Monday, April 05, 2010      0 comments

It's a perfect day for riding but I'm going to have to take a day off today! My body needs to recover from pushing the pace a bit this week and putting in more miles than I have in a while--96 miles, to be exact, which is not much for some but q... Read more

Easy Spin Today

Sunday, April 04, 2010      0 comments

Yesterday I pushed the pace a bit and so today I took an easy spin with my wife. We went about 22 miles at 13.8 mph: just what the doctor ordered. I'm going to try to get 100-150 miles in this week before I leave for India for one month, but we ... Read more

Not Feeling Well Today

Saturday, April 03, 2010      0 comments

For whatever reason I woke up feeling out of sorts and a little nauseated. Don't really know what's up but I'll take a little something and hope for the best. I was planning to take a bike ride later today, I may have to walk instead. We'll see.... Read more

Another Easy Spin Today

Friday, April 02, 2010      0 comments

Yesterday my wife and I took an easy 10 mile spin and I'll probably do the same ride again today. I plan to do a longer ride tomorrow or Sunday so I don't want to push it too hard. I have 11 days to get as many miles in as possible before I leav... Read more

Great 40-Miler Yesterday

Thursday, April 01, 2010      0 comments

I was able to get 40 miles in yesterday and it sure felt good. There was a fair WNW wind and so I rode straight into for the first 15 miles and then turned around and had it at my back--that was awesome! Then I did 5 more straight into it and en... Read more

Going for a Longer Ride Today

Wednesday, March 31, 2010      1 comments

As I was unable to ride yesterday, I hope to go for about 40 miles today. We'll see how it goes, but one way or the other I will certainly take advantage of this awesome Minnesota weather!... Read more

Didn't Get to Ride Today

It was a perfect day for riding today but alas some days are just too busy! Oh well, I hope to be able to make time for a long one tomorrow, maybe about 40 miles.... Read more

Body Position/Endurance Ride Today

Monday, March 29, 2010      0 comments

Today's normally my day off but since I'm going to India in a couple of weeks I've decided to get some things done. And of course, I also have to sneak a bike ride in somewhere! The plan is to work on body position today and bump up the mi... Read more

Rest Day Today

Sunday, March 28, 2010      1 comments

Taking a day off the bike today. Honestly, it's hard for me to do that this time of year because I've been off the bike for quite a while and I'm excited to be back in the swing of things. I want to ride! But rest is such an important part of gr... Read more

Recovery Ride Today

Saturday, March 27, 2010      0 comments

Normally today would be a day off the bike for me, but since I'm leaving for a month in India in two weeks I'm trying to get some extra miles in. So I took an easy 22 mile spin today. It was 45 degrees and a little drizzly but I really enjoyed t... Read more

Strength Training on the Bike Today

Friday, March 26, 2010      0 comments

Today is "strength day" so I'll be heading out on a 17.5 mile, fairly hilly course. After 15 minutes or so of warm-up I'll stick the chain in the big ring and ride in the largest gear I can possibly push. I don't care about cadence or speed at a... Read more

Cadence Day

Thursday, March 25, 2010      0 comments

The 2010 cycling season is in full swing now and today I plan to work on cadence. Normally this would be a day off but due to unforeseen circumstances earlier in the week, I had to shift things around a bit. So here's the plan: Warm up for... Read more

The Cycling Plan for this Time of Year

Wednesday, March 24, 2010      0 comments

Spring is here for real in MN, although we could always get snow or what have you this time of year. Be that as it may, I'm back to a four-ride per week rhythm, focused on three things: body position, cadence, and strength. So here's how a typic... Read more

Gained a Few Pounds

Monday, March 22, 2010      2 comments

Unfortunately, I have lost a little discipline over the last couple of months and I've put on 5-7 lbs. But things are turning around this week, I hope. Cycling season has started in earnest which has re-motivated me to be more careful with my ca... Read more

Buca di Beppo's

Saturday, March 06, 2010      0 comments

My wife's grandpa died this week and so we gathered with family last night at Buca Di Beppo's--I don't even want to think about how much I had to eat! I sure enjoyed it, but I think I'll have a "low-cal" day today.... Read more
