Run Forest, Run!!

September 4, 2015

Run? Why would i run? Am I being chased? if so shouldn’t I just jump on my bike? It’s a faster way to escape!!

I’m a cyclist after all. Shouldn’t i cycle?

Well, yes we should be cycling. But over the years I’ve noticed that when i take a run in the middle of the week I seem to be stronger in the couple of days after the run. So then why don’t you run more?? Because I looooooove the bike! It’s just the best feeling ever to be moving along so fast. Even after all the years of riding, many times the exact same roads, I still can’t get over how great it feels.

But back to improving – I’m going to try and run at least once a week and see how it feels – I’m lucky enough to have a power meter that I can use to track the real data and not just by feel. I’ll try to keep eveyone up to date on the progress I make.

Ride safe my friends!


Excuses suck

September 1, 2015

Today I felt tired – I didn’t want to walk out the door at 5am in the dark to go train. Maybe it was cold or foggy…. excuses abound at 5am for sure. Don’t worry you’ll get it in later….. tomorrow you can ride more…. you know the drill I bet. We’ve all been there at times. But it’s what we do in those moments that make or break the forward progress.

Today I got my ass out the door and rode – not faster than ever but i rode and got some miles into the legs. They need them – I need them for my head to be good and clear. My bike, well it doesn’t say it needs miles but I hear the whispers it makes…. feed me – LOL

So get out and ride today – just get in a little bit if need be, but ride.

ride safe my friends.
