Workout: Jan. 31, 2021

Last workout of January, and I went Trainer Road again. Another 90-minute session, like yesterday. Another day of long intervals, but without the spikes. It was 5×10, rather than 4×12, so a bit more time pushing, although each was a… Continue Reading →

Workout: Jan. 30, 2021

Another TrainerRoad day. The focus today was on “Over/Unders.” The idea is that during the intervals, you alternate between running just under your FTP and just over—by about 5% each time. The intervals were 4×12. I’m getting comfortable enough now… Continue Reading →

A Tale of Lust

I can resist everything except temptation. oscar wilde There you were, staring at me, naked invitation on your face. I innocently opened the freezer door, and you thrust yourself out in your full glory. You dared me to look away,… Continue Reading →

Of Writing and Cycling and the Internet

The mind thinks strange things when it wakes up, unprompted, at 5 a.m. Random things. Unconnected things. Starting with “Why on earth am I up at 5 a.m. when I don’t have to be up at 5 a.m.???” That’s why… Continue Reading →

Workout: Jan. 28, 2021

Only had time for a quick workout today. Given that, I wanted to work hard, so I did part of a Zwift race. It was in Watopia, and up into the volcano, including the volcano KOM (King Of the Mountain)…. Continue Reading →

Workout: Jan. 27, 2021

Today’s Zwift workout was all about cadence. I wanted to keep it as close to 95 rpm as possible, and keep up that rate for an hour (bad roads outside, so I’m sticking to my indoor trainer). Mission accomplished, as… Continue Reading →

Workout: Jan. 26, 2021

Today I did an hour-long TrainerRoad workout. It was another eye-opener. After a warm-up, I did leg isolations (i.e., pedaling with a single leg only, while the other dangles), and then the meat of the workout: cadence ladders. If that… Continue Reading →

Workout: Jan. 24, 2021

A mid-winter workout that was mostly working on form. Not trying to set any records. I wanted to keep my cadence high, focus on pedaling technique, and keep relaxed while pedaling. I didn’t want to go on this ride—at all…. Continue Reading →

Cold Weather Cycling Gear

As I mentioned in my last blog, my ride yesterday was cold. Like, really cold. And remember that cold on a bike ride isn’t like cold on a run or hike. That’s because you’re also creating your own wind as… Continue Reading →
