I'm at a conference all day today which means that it'll be hard to eat well but I'll do the best I can!... Read more

Another long day and I'm tired!

Friday, October 01, 2010      0 comments

I started my day today about 6:30, it's now 10 pm and I'm just wrapping it up. It's been so good--I had an hour-long conversation with a friend from India, hung out with other church planters for a few hours (and got a free lunch along the way),... Read more

Speed Endurance Day Today

Wednesday, September 29, 2010      1 comments

I'm going to do a workout on the bike today called "The Matchbook Maker." Here's how it goes: Find a stretch of road where you can do a handful of uninterrupted 3-5 minute efforts. Push the pace until itís uncomfortable and hang on for 3 m... Read more

Rode Around Town Today

Tuesday, September 28, 2010      0 comments

I don't normally do this, but today I just took my bike out and rode wherever I felt like riding. I pushed when I wanted to and didn't when I didn't, and just enjoyed being outside and exploring my town on a beautiful fall day. I think I will wo... Read more

Lazy Day Today

Monday, September 27, 2010      1 comments

I take only one day off per week, but I really take it off! I do a whole bunch of nothing. Today is that day and I'm so glad, I really need it this week. So the plan is to have a bite to eat, spend some time with the Lord, and then I'm going to ... Read more

Nothing to Blog about Blog

Sunday, September 26, 2010      1 comments

I'm sure I could think of something worthwhile to blog about but it's Sunday afternoon after worship and lunch, I'm tired, and I don't feel like going through the effort! However, I want my three points and thus the "nothing to blog about blog."... Read more

Getting Close to my Goal

Saturday, September 25, 2010      1 comments

This year I decided to try to get 2500 miles in on the bicycle which proved to be even more challenging then I expected. First of all, one can only ride outside in Minnesota for about 8 months (unless you're one of those crazy winter riders whic... Read more

Update on Yesterday, Wild Ride Today

Friday, September 24, 2010      0 comments

Well, I was going to try to do a "cadence ladder" workout on the road yesterday (see yesterday's blog for details) but it was cold and raining and so I didn't do it. Rather, I set the bike up on the indoor trainer and completed the workout, alon... Read more

Cadence Ladder Workout Today

Thursday, September 23, 2010      0 comments

Some cadence workouts are best done on the trainer because it's very hard to peg your cadence at a particular rpm and hold it on the road, unless you live in a particularly flat area. However, if you live in an area where the roads undulate, you... Read more

Riding my Bike to Work Today

Wednesday, September 22, 2010      2 comments

My daughter recently got her driver's license and since she doesn't have her own car, she and I have been sharing. Today I've decided to let her take the car which leaves me only with my bicycle. I have never taken my bike to work before but I'm... Read more

Unable to ride today

Tuesday, September 21, 2010      0 comments

I was supposed to take a 10-mile or so ride today and work on speed, but circumstances would not allow it so I'll have to take a little longer one tomorrow--oh well, it was a perfect day for riding but I'm sure tomorrow will be nice as well. ... Read more

Resting Today

Monday, September 20, 2010      0 comments

I take one day off per week and when I say day off I mean it! I'm going to do a bunch of nothing today, and then back to work and back to the bike tomorrow. Hope you have a good one!... Read more

Changing My Style of Riding

Sunday, September 19, 2010      0 comments

For most of my 11 years of cycling I've been more of a "masher" than a "grinder." That is, I tend to choose a bigger gear and push hard at a slow cadence (rpm) rather than choose a smaller gear and spin at a high cadence. But as this cycling yea... Read more

Training Plan for the End of Cycling Season

Saturday, September 18, 2010      0 comments

One thing about living in Minnesota is that cycling season has a definite beginning and end. To be sure, there are some crazies who ride all the way through the winter but I'm not one of them! So I participated in the Jesse James Bike Tour... Read more
