A look at a week of rides (and a run) in Boulder, Washington DC

It’s been a busy week thus far (and seemingly only getting busier, despite being Sunday). So I figured I’d catch folks up on where I am, and in doing so I have a post that isn’t about power meters (since … Read More Here

Riding along in a fog

Before we get to my foggy ride, we’ll start with my trail run.  Coach and I made a last second change of venue to Prince William Forest National Park, instead of Fountainhead.  The reason was that he came up with … Read More Here

A Weekend of Trail Running and Mountain Riding

While I spent quite a bit of time myself working out, I started the weekend watching others work out.  Or, more accurately, watching them race. The Carpenters Shelter 10K race was held on the street in front of our place, … Read More Here

An awesome training weekend here in DC

This past weekend has been both crazy busy – but also amazingly productive!  While it’s not over here in the US (we get three days!), I’m going to recap two thirds of it, and save you from hearing about my … Read More Here

Power Meters and Pop-Tarts

While the summer may be winding down, my training certainly isn’t.  I’ve still got three races (well, technically four) before the end of my tri season.  And that’s before I end up figuring out what I’m doing running wise for … Read More Here

A return to Skyline!

(Quick Administrative Note: If you don’t normally read the Weekly Mailbag – I’m looking for some feedback on whether or not you’re interested in having integrated ANT+ sensor technology in Smart Phones, particularly Android ones.   This would allow you to … Read More Here

Weekend Part II – Just hanging around

Following a few days of triathlon related goodness in Luray, the Girl and I bailed back up into Shenandoah National Park to our mountainous hideaway for a few days away from it all.  We stayed at Skyland (within the park) … Read More Here

Weekend Part I – Luray Triathlon

For all three of you who may have noticed, I haven’t posted since last Thursday (almost a week ago!).   That’s been due to a lack of internet, land telephone or even cell phone coverage where I’ve been staying since Friday.  … Read More Here

Yogi, more Yogi, and Boo-boo

It’s been quite busy over the last week, with being just on the edge of full taper for Ironman, you think you have more spare time to do other random things than you really do.  I think mentally I’m expecting … Read More Here

The Almost Half-Iron

Just a quick training update (see, I can be quick on occasion). Yesterday I did a nice brick in the mountains, starting from Luray.  Luray is a town in the shadow of Skyline drive, where I usually do my long … Read More Here

One way ticket

Typically my weekly long ride involves a long out segment…and a long back segment – all on Skyline Drive up in da mountains.  However, this week…I’d be purchasing a one-way ticket.  Instead of normally turning around at the 50ish mile … Read More Here

It’s cheaper than a night out…century rides.

After attending a wedding Saturday evening, the girl and I were mixing up our nutrition for our long ride the next day when I realized that I had just gone through an ENTIRE CONTAINER of my sports drink (EFS) for … Read More Here

Two rocks and a chain

Now normally after a weekend I would talk about my typical Skyline drive bike ride, for example, we’d start with the night before with mixing up drinks… …using a KitchenAid blender of course.  How else am I supposed to mix … Read More Here

Goin’ compact on Skyline

One of the biggest benefits of having a coach is when he or she can look back at months of data and finds a way to assist you in getting better. In my case, it was almost a year’s worth … Read More Here

Skyline, Pork and Penguins

Today was (and still is) a busy day.  We were on the road shortly after 6AM for the first Skyline Ride of the season.  For those not familiar, Skyline Drive is a long 100 mile road that rides along the … Read More Here
