Played Soccer Everyday for One Month

Sunday, May 16, 2010      1 comments

While I was in India and completely out of my cycling routine, I had hoped to do something to stay in shape but I wasn't sure what. That "something" ended up being that I played soccer with the kids from the orphanage for 1-2 hours everyday, and... Read more

Just Resting

Saturday, May 15, 2010      2 comments

I've been home from India since about 1:30 p.m. on Thursday and I scheduled a couple of days just to rest and try to get my clock turned around. The first part is working out okay, but not the second! Oh well, I'll get there at some point.... Read more

Back from India

Friday, May 14, 2010      1 comments

Well, I had hoped to keep up with SP while I was away in India over the last month but I was in a fairly remote area and my internet access was almost nil. Certainly not nearly enough speed to spark! I literally took anywhere from 5-20 minutes j... Read more

How to Exercise on a Trip to India

Tuesday, April 13, 2010      2 comments

1. Since I have to be to the airport early but will most likely get through with plenty of time to spare, I will walk around the airport as fast as I can with my 40 lb backpack on for as long as I can. 2. Ditto when I'm in Paris for three ... Read more

Final Ride before Going to India

Monday, April 12, 2010      2 comments

Well, today I will take an "leave it all on the field" kind of bike ride because tomorrow I head to India for one month. I won't be able to ride while I'm there but hopefully I'll be able to keep in shape! I will have access to the interne... Read more

Leaving for India in Two Days

Sunday, April 11, 2010      1 comments

Lord willing, two days from now I'll be departing for India where I will spend one month. I'm not looking forward to the immense heat, but I am looking forward to dropping some weight with the vegetable laden diet. I'm going to try to blog and s... Read more

Little Sore but Feeling Good

Saturday, April 10, 2010      0 comments

I took my first longer bike ride yesterday, about 60 miles. I had taken 30 and 40 mile rides in weeks past but that extra 20 miles does matter at this time of year! Later it will seem like nothing, for now it was a bit challenging. I came ... Read more

Endurance Ride Today

Friday, April 09, 2010      1 comments

So far this year the longest ride I've done was 40 miles. Today I plan to take that up to 60. It should take about 3.5 hours, I hope to come in at 16.5-17.0 mph average but we shall see. It's a bit early in the year for me to ride that fast for ... Read more

Rest Day Today

Thursday, April 08, 2010      0 comments

I'm off the bike today but then plan to go for about 60 miles tomorrow. Yesterday's ride went amazingly well and I can't wait to get back out there again! But for today, rest.... Read more

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
