LATEST BLOG ENTRIESMy cycling month in review: March 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. My 2015 cut ended early in March, and my caloric intake returned to maintenance levels. I began to ramp up my training in March, and the increased calories helped make it a solid month in the saddle. I… [Read more]

When it rains it really pours. It’s been one thing after another this week, all computer and network-related. I worked right up until dinner last night, and then went back to work until bedtime. I hit the pillow tired, but satisfied because I’d solved the problems I’d been working on. This morning I woke up to more problems, completely unrelated to the other stuff. It’s so strange how months can go by without anything major… [Read more]

Long weekend working, BTC article delayed.
Well folks, it was one of those weekends. I got some great rides in–and for those I’m very thankful–but apart from that not much else went according to plan. Various network issues at work kept me tied to the keyboard for large swaths of time on both Saturday and on Sunday. In fact, you may have noticed that JSF and the JSF Forums went dark for an hour or so yesterday afternoon. The JSF issue… [Read more]

Between cut and maintenance; Excellent training ride yesterday!
This is the first time I’ve written a free-form blog on Sunday in many years. As most of you know, every Sunday I take stock of my progress along whatever path I happen to be on at that time (usually cutting or maintenance). Right now I’m sort of between stages… In my March 27, 2015 blog, I announced that I’ve decided to maintain at around 165 pounds instead of my initial target of 160 pounds…. [Read more]

Bike Torture Chamber revisions completed, article coming soon!
Last night after work I finally finished the modifications to my Bike Torture Chamber that I’ve been working on for the past couple of weeks (here is the old version)! Most of you who have been visiting JSF for any length of time know how I am: nothing is ever good enough, and I spend way too much time tweaking and adjusting stupid little details that no one but me will ever notice. Well, all… [Read more]

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]

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]
