new beginnings

I'm a little bit sick of Facebook. It used to be that a lot of cool people I respected would come here and read my stuff and leave comments.. I miss that. Facebook has sort of hijacked the blogging world, but I'd like to keep trying to contribute here. Thanks for not giving up on me, even though I've obviously been quite the slacker. Some extremely exciting things are happening in my life, and I'd rather share them here than on Facebook. Please stay tuned..

Balance Bike Buyer's Guide

You could buy an unsafe low end knock-off, or you can show the same care and concern about safety and quality as you do for your own bikes. If a Fizik Arione saddle is worth $150, then so is a top quality balance bike for a 2-5 year old kid.

Well I just reopened the blog to readers. Sometimes I like to shut it down- like during periods when I'm interviewing for a job opportunity. Sorry about that! I now have a new gig in Avon CT, so if you all have any good pointers for where/when to train in that area, I'm all ears. Aside from a Wed and a Sunday road ride, I am teaching two SPINNING classes a week at the Kent County YMCA.

Training Camp

Been down here in south Florida all week, and having a great time riding my ass off. Five days of riding so far and 231 miles. I'm very pleased because I've banked enough base miles in the basement back in New England that I can go out and do lots of FT work without any overuse issues. It's been great. The bike I rented fits like a glove, luckily- the seat is at it's highest point- it's a LOOK 595 and I've really connected with this bike. Brought my Powertap wheel down with me and the workouts have been successful and free of structural pain. I even did a 60 miler the other day in less than 3 hours. Of course the roads are pancake flat, but my rides are all out and back and it's very windy down here. I am expecting to top off 300 + miles in the next couple of days, but it's okay if I fall short by a little bit. I'll be going into February ready to do some more specific LT work and start on some zone 5 stuff too. looking forward to a really awesome 2012 racing season!
