Cool read though.
He had porn too?

Damn, I missed that.

Despite the fact that a blog called "drunk cyclist" would seem right up my alley, I could never get into that one.

Still big on the concept of fatbike touring. Got a couple of overnights planned biking along the lake superior shoreline on the ice for this winter. Looking at doing a good chunk of Cannonshot's UPAT next summer: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=627424

You still riding?



I was out today for about 1:10. Did a few 'cruise intervals' on the dirt roads around here. Didn't go play UW Hockey tho. Not 2-a-day for me!

Cruise intervals = let's go hammer somewhat on the dirt stretches and take it easy on the road.

As a matter of fact I have been... on the trainer. I am on week 4 of Time crunched cyclist and have logged around 400 miles in the last month. May have to enter a race or two later this year. Right now I'm just trying to make sure I'm in good enough shape for a rim to rim hike of the Grand Canyon the end of May first of June. If this weather holds I will get a couple of 2 hour rides outside this weekend.

Anyone need a Brooks B17? I've found it less that adequate while on the trainer. After trying an SMP I can't believe I liked the Brooks as well as I did.

I think Ducnut is running a few Brookses. Try PMing him.

Congrats on the riding. How's that book treating you? IOW are the workouts working for you?

I'm gonna ride to Warrenton and back here in a few hours. 2+ hours. Gotta go to the bank and I might as well get a ride in at the same time. Right?! Its already over 30, so I should be OK.

The workouts have been fun so far. At least I haven't puked yet. It is amazing how 97% LTH feels easy after some 101% even though it felt like I was gonna die at first. Yesterday was over/unders and that was the worst so far. Despite being sore most days now, I feel pretty good. Hopefully I will become a better climber and lose at least 50 lbs in the process. Here is a link to the last workout http://connect.garmin.com/activity/139199518. No mapping since it was indoors. I haven't lost much weight yet, but I am getting thinner. I guess I should take a before picture for later comparison.

This is sounding more and more like some kind of lame reality TV show:

At least there are some good posts from people who've actually ridden Hannebrinks. Short version: They had their day.

Its sunny
Its warm
I've got to run to the bank

I know! Let's go for a ride!

So I rode over to Warrenton from home (~1hr by bicycle) to the branch there and then back. I'm not one to head to a coffee shop and profile mid-ride so I'm gonna go back here in a few and THEN profile!

I was out for a total of about 2:30 riding the Crosshairs with some 28c Gatorskins on it 'cause there's still a bunch of salt all over the roads. Gotta love the knowledge that its gonna take a LOT to flat.

Supposed to meet Thor down at Pearson Ele tomorrow AM. *Supposed* to be a birthday ride but so far it sounds like everyone else is riding down in Culpeper. I refuse to drive for MY b-day ride, so eff em. Heck! I may end up riding solo. Won't be the first time.

Black B17. Been laced. Around 1500 miles on it so just starting to break in. Would include wrench and tin of Proofide. How does $60 shipped sound?

While I'm blessed with an ass that can ride pretty much anything (saddle-wise) there are some that work better.

For example: the Antares that I was riding today is good up to about 90min and then starts to get a little wonky.

The Romin is good for many hours.

The saddle that still fits best is a Flite. May have to replace the black and green Antares on the Crosshairs with my R/W/G Flite for the spring/summer as I'm riding the Crosshairs as a road bike.

Good to hear. I bought the book a while back and have read through about half of it...and that's about it.

I've been riding fairly regularly, but not with any real structure. Just getting in miles and having fun. Prolly time to stop horsing around and spend some quality time in the pain cave. Meanwhile, I'm planning to get in a 55 mi. loop Sat. morning.

Judging how I feel after a workout, and then how I feel after the rest day I think the ratios on the work are pretty spot on. There is also room to expand to more work if needed. I'm pretty pleased with it so far.

Is there a link anywhere to these workouts? Thanks!
