Wednesday, November 26, 2014 - Welcome, guest user!


Taking a picture while riding no-hands in the rain with strong winds and 58mm wheels is a little sketchy. I’ve been doing my fair share of rain rides…

We sure have had a lot of rain over the past few days… When Hector, William and I rolled out at 7:00 AM for Saturday’s 105 kilometer/65 mile ride the wind-driven rain was pelting us. Getting caught in the rain is one thing, but actually starting a fairly long ride in those conditions requires a little extra fortitude. I snapped this picture about a mile into the ride. You can’t tell from the crappy picture,… [Read more]

A near record-high yesterday combined with almost 100% humidity made for a very uncomfortable morning in the hills. Tough hill ride yesterday; Weighted Average vs Normalized Power.

Yesterday morning I heard the hills calling. I decided to head over to Sugarloaf and do a couple grueling loops using a slightly revised version of a hill training loop that I love to hate. This revised loop is 20.8 miles (33.47 kilometers) in length, and it contains right at 1,650 feet of elevation. You must admit, for Central Florida that’s a decent amount of vertical packed into a 21 mile loop! This training loop… [Read more]

Myotape 2014 maintenance progress report: week #36

Week #36 of my 2014 maintenance program is complete, and it’s time for my weekly progress report. PLEASE NOTE: A few words about my methodologies and body fat percentage 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 the most accurate “at-home” method… [Read more]

The X9 Evolution Home Gym Missing my Titan, hope the X9 will be here soon.

Yesterday morning I hit the weights, and then went for a light 21 mile/34 kilometer recovery ride. Because I sold my Titan earlier this year in anticipation of receiving the new X9 Evolution Home Gym, I’ve been restricted mostly to dumbbells since then (I still have my barbells, too). While I can still get a great workout in using the stuff I have on-hand, I definitely miss having a full-featured home gym. After having so… [Read more]

Novembeard - Day 21. Novembeard: Day 21.

It’s Friday, and not just any old run-of-the-mill, relaxed-dress-code, cut-out-early-from-the-office Friday. No, this Friday is ridiculously noteworthy because it’s the third Friday in November, and each Friday this November I am taking a progress picture… of my facial hair. We like to get a little crazy around here at the holidays. Try to contain yourselves. November, of course, is the month during which manly men don’t shave in order to avoid cancer. I may have… [Read more]

KOMs are nice, but they are comparatively worthless to me next to power output PRs. Power PRs vs KOMs: all that glitters is not gold; New FTP established.

I have been a Strava user for a few years now, and I think it’s a great service. The interesting thing about that, though, is how drastically my reasons for liking Strava have changed since I first started using it in 2012. Like most competitive people–and I am most definitely that–I was first drawn to Strava for its timed segment “virtual competition” features. In those early days it was all about chasing down as many… [Read more]
