LATEST BLOG ENTRIESMy cycling month in review: August 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. After a record-breaking July (PRs for distance, time, elevation) I eased off a bit in August. Despite slightly less saddle time than usual, August was still an eventful month: a mechanical far from home, a weird cold, a… [Read more]

Product Review: Jaybird Freedom Sprint wireless sport earbuds
Last week I did something I’ve never had to do before: I removed an item from my Favorite Things list. The item I removed was the MEElectronics Sport-Fi M6 Noise Isolating In-Ear Headphones with Memory Wire due to multiple speaker failures when exposed to sweat. If you’re going to market your product specifically towards athletes, it better be able to handle sweat. For the full story, check out this blog. A few weeks ago a… [Read more]

2015 maintenance progress report: Week #21
Week #21 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]

Loving these new earbuds, review Monday
The new earbuds I’ve been using are awesome! These things are a huge improvement over the MEElectronic Sport-Fi M6 earbuds in every respect (see “This is a first: I’m removing an item from my Favorite Things list“). I was going to review the new earbuds this morning, but I want to get a couple more days of hard riding in and perform a few more tests before I give my thoughts. Look for the review… [Read more]

Overslept (alarm fail), feeling a little better
My alarm failed to sound this morning, and I slept until 5:30 AM. I’m not sure why my phone’s alarm didn’t go off, as it was set properly. I hope it’s a one-off, as I need to be able to rely on the alarm. The funny thing is I was actually dreaming that my alarm didn’t go off! In my dream I slept until 11:00 AM, and I felt like I’d wasted the entire day…. [Read more]

I am feeling a little under the weather…
Not too long after Tuesday’s aggressive ride with a couple of friends I started feeling a little tired and weak. I went to bed extra early that night, but all day yesterday that tired/weak feeling persisted, and I noticed a touch of chest congestion as well. There’s been some stuff going around, and it looks like I may have picked up cold or whatever. I went fairly easy on yesterday’s short 20 mile ride, with… [Read more]

A positive cyclist/motorist story!
I had a fantastic ride yesterday morning with my friends Sebastian and Christopher. I can always count on a fast, fun and challenging ride when I get to roll with those two crazy dudes. School started back up on Monday, and the traffic, for most of the ride, was extremely heavy. We definitely experienced some close passes, a horn or two and the usual sense that we were not welcome on the roads. One notable… [Read more]
