2-0-large Revised maintenance weight target

When I finished my recent cut, I decided that I was going to maintain this year at 160 pounds. I’ve changed my mind, and I’ve got good reasons for doing so. During my cut I was, of course, eating well below maintenance. As expected, my performance on the bike suffered somewhat–although not as much as one might have expected. Once I hit 157 pounds and returned to a maintenance level (+) caloric intake, my cycling… [Read more]

A little over halfway. Reaching level 7 in Zwift unlocks the Zipp 404 carbon wheels, which I was happy to add to my bike since those are the wheels I ride in real life. I rode 100 miles on the indoor trainer yesterday. It was not fun.

One of the downsides of my job is that I’m on call 24/7. Yeah, that’s even during my vacations. While never truly being “off” is not always ideal, it’s a tradeoff I willingly make: I enjoy some flexibility with my schedule, and I get to work from home. Anyway, during my recent two week vacation I had to do a few hours of work nearly every day and, as such, I amassed some comp time…. [Read more]

My friends Hector Cabrera (leading) and Kyle Markel (owner of Kyle's Bike Shop) at the 2015 Chain Of Lakes Crit. Photo credit: Hawkdancer Photography. Bike racing : various musings.

I’ve been putting a lot of thought into bike racing lately, specifically road racing. A big part of me wants to put on a number and line up, but every time I start to get excited about it I’m treated to a video of fresh carnage. I’m not talking about random bike crash videos from around the world, I’m talking about local races–the races that my friends are doing, and the ones I would be… [Read more]

man_maintenance Overview of maintenance diet, plans to post complete logs.

Now that my cut is over, I’ve received some requests to post a week or two of my maintenance diet on MyFitnessPal. I think that’s a good idea, and I’m planning to do that. This week I’m eating extra clean, and I’m even reducing my calories a bit. I’ll still be eating right around maintenance level, but a little less than my usual maintenance caloric intake. So I don’t think this is a good representative… [Read more]

Still unavailable for comment. Post-vacation report: the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Greetings! I’m back from my 2-week holiday break and, as I always do after a vacation, this morning I’m going to break down the Good, the Bad and the Ugly. The Good. I had an absolutely fantastic holiday! I really enjoyed my time off, especially with my mom here (along with many other family and friends, some with fur). After nine weeks of very strict dieting, being able to relax my diet and enjoy some… [Read more]

2015 cut: End weight. 2015 cut progress report: week #9 (FINISHED!)

Week #9 of my 2015 cut is complete, and this wraps up my 2015 cut! Here’s my final 2015 cutting 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… [Read more]

Out of office Final day of 2015 cut; On vacation!

Whew. This has been a toughie. The past nine weeks have been a mixed bag for me. I always enjoy the process of being strict while I cut, and this year was no different in that respect, but this cut seemed tougher than most. I’ve been extremely hungry pretty much non-stop, I’ve experienced quite a few days (especially these past couple of weeks) during which my energy levels have been sub-par, and I’ve been cranky… [Read more]
