Back to Normal Today
I've been at a conference the last few days and it's so nice to be home and get back to normal in terms of exercise, food, sleep, etc. Thank God for the conference and thank God for being home again!... Read more
Conference Food Today
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!
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
Long day, I'm tired!
It has been a good, long day and I'm wiped out, but i want my SP points!... Read more
Speed Endurance Day Today
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.

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
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
