Monday, May 25, 2015 - Welcome, guest user!


flag Memorial day thanks

While it’s nice to have a three day weekend, I think it’s important to not lose sight of what this day is for. I’m not going to talk fitness today, and instead would like to simply express my gratitude for all the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for my country. Regardless of our individual political leanings, I think we can all agree that would not enjoy the many freedoms we often… [Read more]

EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale 2015 maintenance progress report: Week #7

Week #7 of my 2015 maintenance program 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]

I'm so ready for fall. Feeling good; May, and already sick of the heat.

It felt good to tighten up my diet this week. I was really strict, and almost felt like I was in cutting mode. Well, I guess in a way I am cutting, but very slowly. The nice thing is I have a splurge meal meal to enjoy tonight, which is definitely something I would not be having on one of my usual cuts. I’ve been sleeping really well this week, and overall I’m feeling quite… [Read more]

oops 2015 cut and beyond: mistakes were made…

In the midst of yesterday’s blog, in which I discussed my diet and training plans for the Six Gap Century ride later this year, I wrote that I made some errors after completing an otherwise extremely successful 2015 cutting program. There’s not much to be gained by putting my head in the sand, so today I’d like to take a quick look at where I messed up. I believe my problems started before I even… [Read more]

Me and my buddy Mike doing Sugarloaf repeats on a rainy morning last year. I'll be seeing a lot of this hill and her sisters in the coming months... Six Gap diet and training plans…

I love training “just because”, but when I’m working towards a goal my passion ratchets up to an entirely new level. Now that I’ve committed to doing Six Gap at the end of September (see “Six Gap Century 2015!“), every workout and meal becomes an important component of how I will perform in that event. I’ve nailed down travel and lodging, and I’ve roughed out my training plan. As you might expect, my training between… [Read more]

972 Raleigh Super Course Fixie Frankenbike. I call her Bloodbear. Thinking of selling Bloodbear (1972 vintage Raleigh Super Course)

I am strongly considering selling my vintage 1972 Raleigh Super Course. The bike is not stock, and has been converted into a fixie. I bought this bike late last year, but it’s seen practically no action. I hate to see a great bike collect dust, and right now I would get a lot more use out of a Time Trial bike. Here’s a some information about her: Original Reynolds 531 steel frame Original Coffee paint… [Read more]

Six Gap: 3,000 cyclists, 104 miles, 11,200 feet of vertical climbing. Six Gap century 2015!

Last year I trained my ass off for the Six Gap Century, which is held in the mountains of Northern Georgia each year in late September. Six Gap is 104 miles in length, and contains more than 11,000 feet of vertical. The 11,000 feet of vertical is not mere “elevation”: we’re talking six sustained categorized mountain climbs, unlike anything found in Florida. The toughest climb on this ride is Hogpen Gap, which has an average… [Read more]
