Pairing Endurance Films' RIDES Indoor Trainer Workout and Trainer Road

For anyone who uses Trainer Road for their indoor cycling tracking and/or uses the RIDES DVD series to keep motivated, the two can be paired.  I will warn you that using them together will hurt, since you then have the added pressure of holding a certain power number that equates to the effort prescribed by the DVD.  But you certainly get the benefit from the pain.  Or will next season anyway.  Yo...

My Kind of Offseason

The  offseason  is that time of the year that is associated with being lazy, putting on a few pounds,  and carrying on with your old life before triathlon took over the schedule. My offseason began full swing after the  Oilman triathlon as I boarded a plane to head to  Boulder, CO . I was lucky enough to have Tru Tri send me to  Retul  for my bike fit certification, and my friend Kelly decided to ... Read More

'ABC Quick Check' before every bike ride

Before most rides, I inflate my tires, pick the bike up, and give each wheel a quick spin. Today I did not. ( My apologies to friends and sponsors at Jack Kane Custom Racing Bicycles who have certainly taught me better .) Hmmm, can you guess where this story is headed? I left the house on "Ace" the road bike to do a short-ish ride with some quality tempo/recovery repeats. The bike was not shif... Read More

Reservoir Run Half Marathon- A successful training day

I decided to run this half marathon last minute while on my Saturday morning bike ride.  However, I hadn't fully committed to run it until I was up and ready to go on Sunday morning.  I figured I was going to run a 10 miler anyway, and since this was on roads that I routinely bike on and only a 15 minute drive from my house, what was another 3 miles?   I promised myself if I was going to run, I wa...

Time to learn this swimming thing

My goal this offseason is to bring my poor swim up to the level of my bike and run, which are at least mediocre!  I have been working on my form in the water and getting much more streamlined.  I had nowhere to go but up with my leg dragging position in the water.  It has been going well with a lot of focus/concentration and for the past few weeks I have been doing some in-water strength work with...

A glimpse into the start of one off-season

"Off season" can vary greatly from person to person and there's no single roadmap. I guess it depends on how beat up we are from racing, the other demands of life, and preference. Some people ( i.e. me ) want a little more structure, some prefer little to none. I really don't know how most people do their off season. I figured I'd share what mine looks like because I'm curious what it is for othe... Read More

My Road to London Part 1

It's been about 5 weeks since I started my prep for London 2013.  I took a complete week of downtime to let my body heal and by day 3 I was itching to get back on the road.  By the time I hit day 7 it was time to get back out there.  I've spent the last 5 weeks in a run/bike focus in an effort to raise my FTP and to bring my running pace down. Which seems to be working so far.  In addition I'm als... Read More
