I was told today by my g/f that she is getting me the SparkPeople Cookbook for my upcoming birthday. She is also getting herself a copy. Then she mentioned that she used a coupon and is paying $5 for both of them. I say that means she's buying ... Read more

Last night was my team's winter meeting. The main focus was our road squad. There's some serious talent there and this year could be quite exciting. The outlook for the other squads (multisport, mtb, and cyclocross) is quite interesting. The mtb... Read more

I had my day pretty well planned out this morning. Get out of bed. Do laundry. Eat. Eat some more. Clean (still working on Spring Cleaning, '08), see a movie with my g/f, go to my teams winter meeting, and then hit the gym on the way home. Then,... Read more

I've taken it easy today. Didn't get out of bed until noonish. Got some chili going, made some coffee, and plopped on the couch. I don't have tv, so I just listened to the radio and screwed around on my smartphone. I managed to get in some stren... Read more

Kids can be expensive. Take today. 10:30 sharp I get a call from Thing 2. This what she said, verbatim. Ready? It's deep. Put your thinking caps on. Here it is: "FEED ME!!!". Short and to the point. So I go pick her up only to find Thing 1 is co... Read more

I took a vacation day to ride in the Bock Fest Parade downtown. It didn't quite work out. I'll ride in the rain. I've been known to ride in thunderstorms. One of my favorite races ever (that don't include racing with Thing 2) is the 2007 OVCX Br... Read more

I made some chili this weekend. I made one small, teensy error. I substituted (accidently) 4 tablespoons of cayenne pepper (fine ground) for 4 tablespoons of chili pepper. I had some at 6pm break. Flames are still coming off my lips. Tasty flame... Read more

Can't go into a lot of detail. The dosed Jerry Springer show (with more white trash--and not the Edgar Winter kind) where I work has slipped into the land of Salvador Dali. I work here, and I can't believe it....... Read more

Monday, February 27, 2012      4 comments

First off, I think I'm going to be very happy certain people don't read blogs unless I harrass them into it. I know people who are incredibly regimented. They plan every aspect of their life way in advance. One person I know has a budget ma... Read more
2/26/12---When Not To Eat...
Sunday, February 26, 2012      4 comments

I taught myself a lesson today. A lesson I learned and relearned many times. Don't eat when you're hungry. At first blush, that might not make sense. Hear me out. Something I've been told, and have proven true to myself, is when during ride... Read more

I don't want to jinx it, but today might be my first day this month to come in under the max sodium allowance. There are 12 minutes left, and barring any last minute run to the vending machine for some wheat flavored salt (aka: pretzels), I will... Read more

I crab about this from time to time. This is one of those times. A while back I read an article on cycling by a respected coach. He crabbed about people putting garbage miles on their bikes. he said every ride should have a purpose. By that defi... Read more

Last night (1:30am this morning to be accurate), I made myself some fresh spinach with garlic and lemon juice and olive oil, and a tomato sandwich, and crawled into bed to listen to some loonies on the radio talk about aliens and to read a magaz... Read more

Third time charm, I hope. Twice now, I have written a blog with some of the most amazing, Pulitzer worthy (if not Nobel worthy) prose to ever grace the english language, only to fat finger my keyboard and erase said written genius. So, what foll... Read more

Most of my cardio for the last few months has been low intensity runs, commutes around town on a bike, and elliptical fun at the gym. Yesterday, was short duration, high intensity, turn yourself inside out, try not to barf, enjoy the taste of la... Read more
