Thursday, January 17, 2019 - Welcome, guest user!

Upcoming cutting phase date & plans; Weekend plans; Trail video improvements.

As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m focusing my weight training on strength building right now. So for yesterday’s delts/chest/triceps workout I stuck with compound exercises, low reps and heavy weights. It was a very good workout, but my strength is still not what it was a few months ago. I may be sort of coasting along for the next couple of months from a dietary standpoint, but I’m going to keep training hard in… [Read more]

Fun morning at some brand new dirt trails (pictures and video).

So yesterday after I finished writing my blog I loaded up the car and drove to Mt. Dora to check out some brand new trails there. As I was arriving a very light rain was falling, and this rain made the leaves on the ground very slick. Also, because this is a new trail and we’ve not had any rain for over a month, the trail is still pretty sandy in spots. The light rain… [Read more]

I’ve got to get out of here; Winter diet and training plans.

I’m feeling very unmotivated this morning. Not unmotivated as in lazy, unmotivated as in I don’t feel like sitting in front of a damn computer all day long. Today’s a cardio day, and I really want to get outside and do some real trail riding. I have so much to do that I don’t think that’s going to be possible, but I’m going to see if I can shift my schedule around so I can… [Read more]

I accidentally got up early today; November 2010 Transformation Spotlight!

I woke up this morning, looked over at the clock and thought I saw 6:10 AM. I got up, put my contacts in, fed Loki and as I walked by the kitchen clock I saw that is was actually just past 5:00 AM. Oh well, if I’m going to accidentally get up an hour early then the first day of the month is a great day to do it; I’ve always got a lot to… [Read more]

GoPro mount rant; Found some awesome new video editing software.

I love my GoPro HD camera, but the mounts available for it (at least from a mountain biking standpoint) mostly suck. The vented helmet mount that comes with the camera is OK, but I don’t like riding around with a giant camera sitting on top of my head. So I bought the handlebar/seatpost mount kit, and that’s what I’ve been using for the past few months. The problem is the handlebar mount is not that… [Read more]

Deads this morning; GoPro mount and 60 FPS experiments.

Yesterday wound up being another fairly long and stressful day. I want to apologize for the unplanned outage that impacted the JSF family of web sites for most of yesterday morning. A quick reboot of the web server after a kernel upgrade wound up requiring a trip to the datacenter to correct. Once I got things running again (on the old kernel), I still had to figure out what went wrong. I tracked down and… [Read more]

Cateye Micro Wireless 10-Function Bicycle Computer

I love my Cateye CC-MC100W Micro Wireless 10-Function Bicycle Computer. If you do any biking at all, it’s well worth the 50 bucks!

Unexpected JSF web server downtime this morning; Bunny hops hurting shoulder.

I had to reboot the JSF web server this morning (ending a very respectable 638 day uptime!) This reboot resulted in some expected downtime while the filesystem was forced-checked, but also some unexpected downtime which required me to drive down town to correct. Sorry about that! I never did go for a bike ride yesterday morning. I made what I thought was going to be a quick phone call to resolve a VMWare licensing issue,… [Read more]

I woke up facing a difficult morning, instead I get to hit the trails!

I sure am glad I got my workout done first thing in the morning yesterday. Yesterday afternoon there was a computer/network emergency at work that required my full attention. I would have had no choice but to skip my afternoon workout (or, at best, postpone it). I’m definitely feeling the new AM workout schedule. It’s here to stay. That computer issue at work had me pretty frustrated last night, and I woke up this morning… [Read more]

A few new pictures; New AM workout time is staying.

I didn’t do much of a real bike ride yesterday, but I did get out in the driveway for a little over an hour to work on basics like bunny hops, track stands, riding skinnies, stoppies and balance. Much like when I was first learning proper form for weight training exercises, I always record my bike skill practice sessions. I find it invaluable to go back and review the video footage so I can watch… [Read more]
