“Placing your family and career ahead of your cycling goals is a wise choice for pretty much anyone who has either a real career or a family, and pretty much the only choice if you have both.”
Some of the family were skeptical but this frittata was nutritious and delicious. Peel, seed and cut half a butternut squash. Cut into about 3/4in cubes. Cover the pumpkin in olive oil, salt and pepper. Cook in a 425F oven for 25 minutes. Reduce the oven to 400F. In the meantime, dice and cook a[…]
Updated based on data from New York Times tabulation. November 16th. These visualizations represent PE-OTUS Trumps current Cabinet Nominee diversity breakout. If a person was nominated in two cabinet posts, they were counted twice (a nomination). Data considering Ben Carson were removed as he has publicly stated he will not be considered for the cabinet.
I wish this was my idea but it came from the twitterverse. You should take action by putting your money where your mouth is – donate to organizations that will be vigilant around issues that are important – but this one was even better. You can donate to Planned Parenthood in honor of someone else.[…]
These suggestions are curated from Emily Ellsworth’s twitter feed. I thought they were good, experience based practical suggestions so I’m sharing them. I worked for Congress for 6 years, and here’s what I learned about how they listen to constituents. First, tweeting or writing on Facebook is largely ineffective. I never looked at those comments[…]
REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE are the three ‘R’s for helping the planet. This BLOG post is an example of REDUCE as it would have been a great way not to use poster board and paper. Here are some examples of each from my own life! Examples of Reduce Shorter Showers Buy in Bulk Turn Off[…]
I think Chris Carmichael wrote the seminal commentary on this. Essentially, you can always find a reason not to go on a ride or a run – too hot, too cold, too dark, raining, too tired etc. Its only through the choice of enduring these things is toughness built. For me, with chronic obstructive asthma, every[…]
I learned this in riding in Austin, TX for the first time. A lot of traffic and intimidating roads. Okay, where do you go for 50 miles of cycling? Pull out Strava, do a local search for local athletes and start there. Or take a short ride, look at the flyby’s and see what those[…]
Its just a measurement. It can and will change over time and while its a good relative indicator of how well you can perform over time, its not a goal itself. FTP is a process measure, not an outcome measure. It should be used as a means to tell you your training is working, and[…]
Key Lesson: Be aware for anything. Pop Quiz: Heading down a narrow causeway at 20MPH and a hawk, carrying a still writhing snake heads straight at your helmet. What do you do? What do you do? Brake. Swerve and Curse. Worked for me. Be ready for anything – note the car coming in the oncoming[…]
Key Lesson: Hydrate well for 24hrs before a hot ride This week I had three sets of tempo intervals to complete and then two endurance-miles sessions to complete. Friday afternoon when I went out, I was not well hydrated and the heat (of the air, not from the road) was 95F. I finished the intervals[…]
