LATEST BLOG ENTRIESHome stretch; A few thoughts on this cut vs the January cut
My scale weight this morning is 168.2 pounds, and that mean less than 5 pounds remain between me and my current weight goal of 163.x pounds. My body fat percentage (as measured by the 7-point FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat calipers) will probably wind up somewhere between 5-6% when I reach my goal weight. Even though I mention this in my blog every Sunday, I still get questions about the accuracy of body fat calipers…. [Read more]

Product review: DogEars Garmin Mounting Plate
If you own a Garmin cycling computer long enough, chances are good that eventually the thin and insufficient plastic tabs used to secure your expensive Garmin to its mount will break off. Sometimes the tabs sheer off if you’re unfortunate enough to wreck (both of the tabs on my old Garmin Edge 500 were broken off in a mountain bike crash), and sometimes normal use will, over time, cause the tabs to break (this was… [Read more]

Beautiful fall weather over the weekend; Solid solo training rides.
Central Florida was treated to an unseasonably pleasant and cool weekend, and I took full advantage! Morning temperatures were in the low 60s, and remained in the 60s for the entirety of my Saturday and Sunday rides. I believe that these temperatures are about 7° (F) lower than usual for early October. I love riding in groups, but sometimes when I’m in the mood for a hard training ride I prefer to roll solo. No… [Read more]

Fall 2015 cut progress report: Week #4
Week #4 of my Fall 2015 cut is complete, and it’s time for my weekly progress report. METHODS AND MINUTIA: A few words about my body fat test, scale weight and soft tape measurements My body fat, tape measurements and scale weight are all performed while fasted (first thing in the morning before eating or drinking). All measurements are taken “cold” (no pump), and flexed. A 7-point or 9-point body fat caliper pinch test is… [Read more]

Prediction: 2 more weeks
My scale weight this morning dipped down to 168.8 pounds, and that means less than 6 pounds stand between me and my goal of 163.x pounds. My progress on this cut is tracking virtually identically to my January 2015 cut; because of that, it’s not unreasonable to predict that I’m going to wrap this cut up in two weeks (I was 162.4 six weeks into my January cut, same starting weight). I hope that prediction… [Read more]

Back in the 160s, vascularity returning; Friday dog video
After my short ride yesterday I weighed in at 168.4 pounds. That post-ride weight was a little lower than my current fasted morning weight, but I’m definitely going to be 169.x, or lower, for my “official” weekly weigh-in on Sunday. It feels great to be back down into the 160s on the scale. My body fat calipers should indicate something in the low 8% range by Sunday (last Sunday I was at 8.8%). I can’t… [Read more]

My cycling month in review: September 2015
A new month is upon us and, as I always do at the beginning of a new month, this morning I’m going to review some of my cycling highlights, personal records and totals from the previous month. While September was not Earth-shattering from a PR standpoint, I trained hard and had some extremely fun, but tough, rides with my friends. I hit some new roads, battled the heat, humidity, fog and rain, and I also… [Read more]
