Third day of the 10-week Fast Start program and all is well: Fat 22% and protein 28%. The ride was a bit long, but nice. Along the way I set a new 5 minute power number, 229 watts. Very happy with that. My Aussie did real well on all obstacles. ... Read more

It has been a beautiful day. Just the kind of day that begs a nice bike ride. And so it was, a nice bike ride through the countryside. Enjoyed the fall colors and the leaves falling. Will not enjoy having to rake those puppies later on. Tonight ... Read more

Yesterday was "Hills" day. It's not my favorite, but it's so good for you that I try to do it every other week. The area that I do the training is a rolling 8-mile course. I do that course twice and suffer through it. The goal is to climb the hi... Read more
