My copy of "Training and Racing with a Power Meter", 2nd Edition. This book is a must-have for all power meter owners. Must-have book for power meter owners.

With power meters coming down in price, more and more cyclists are taking the plunge and diving into the power pool. I picked up my Stages Cycling power meter one month ago, and so far I’m completely thrilled with its performance, functionality and reliability. Over the past month I’ve penned quite a few articles discussing my experiences with the Stages Cycling power meter. If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a power meter, these articles may… [Read more]

At the end of yesterday's 72 mile ride. Nice dirt pants for a road ride! Intense 29.2 mile time trial on yesterday’s 72 mile ride.

My work schedule was packed last week, and I wasn’t able to get away for any rides longer than 36 miles. This past Sunday evening I was pleasantly surprised to see that my Monday morning plate was still nearly empty. So, after a week of short (but punchy!) rides, including a reevaluation of my FTP, a long Monday morning ride sounded good. Also–and this was likely a reaction to the dietary indulgences I enjoyed over… [Read more]

I finally got to have fajitas on Saturday! I've been craving these all year long... The taco was Lisa's, but everything else in the picture I devoured. Indulgent weekend.

We had family staying with us this past weekend, and I went a wee bit overboard with the dietary indulgences… We kicked things off with a trip to our favorite Mexican restaurant on Saturday. I ordered the steak fajitas, and I ate every last bite along with approximately 340 pounds of chips. I washed it all down with a margarita. The next day we all went up to the theater to watch a movie, which… [Read more]

A typical maintenance day of food for me (2014) A look at my maintenance nutrition.

A lot of you have inquired about my maintenance nutrition, but I couldn’t really address that question right away because my diet was ever-changing as I gradually transitioned from my cutting diet to my maintenance diet. Now that I’ve sort of settled into a maintenance caloric “sweet spot”, I thought it would be a good time to enter a typical maintenance day into MyFitnessPal and see what my calories and macros looked like. I need… [Read more]

Alcohol's effect on sleep patterns Alcohol consumption and quality of sleep.

I’ve been getting up very early lately–generally between 4:00 and 4:30 AM–but a couple of times this week I’ve found myself standing in front of the coffee pot as early as 3:30 in the morning. Given my current trajectory, I expect that by mid-summer I’ll be up and at ‘em shortly before midnight. I’m not going to bed any earlier than usual, either. I’m almost always in bed somewhere between 9:00 and 9:30 PM, and… [Read more]

Outside of the rear Pro4 Service Course Tire. The two circled areas are where I suffered two flats on yesterday's ride. Done with Pro4 Service Course tires; Good Samaritan helps me get home.

Back in February I’d put more than 5,000 100% trouble-free kilometers (3,124 miles) on my tires, and it was time to replace them. I was extremely pleased with the GP 4000S tires, but wanted to give the tires a shake, as I’d heard very good things about them. Life with the Pro4 tires started out very well: I loved the ride quality, the low rolling resistance, the way they handled/cornered and their simple, understated look…. [Read more]
