Strength Training on the Bike Today
Wednesday, April 07, 2010      0 comments

Today I took a 28-mile ride that included 7 climbs of various lengths and difficulties. I stayed in the saddle 98% of the time and tried to push as hard as I could. I came in at 16.2 mph which is great for me on a course that like at this time o... Read more
Condition: Buttocks di Saurass
Tuesday, April 06, 2010      1 comments

I normally ramp my riding up slowly in the beginning of the year, mostly to let my backside catch up to my passion for riding! But since I'm going to India for one month (one week from today) I've been putting in lots of extra miles. This ... Read more
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

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
