B-Man was as sick as a grass eating dog lat night. Copious amounts of vomit. Poor kid was so scared. He's doing much better now. Wifey was up all night with him so I took off work today to let her sleep and watch B-Man. He was feeling pretty good so we spent the morning watching Sponge Bob.
Later, when it was nap time I was able to finish up my Bikeman.com review of the Panaracer Rampage 29er. It's a damn fine tire. I gave it 4 Bikeman heads out of 5. I would have gone with a 3.5, since I can't judge it's long term durability right now, but since I've always had good luck with Panaracer mountain tires (not road tires) I bumped it up to a 4. I also had to hold back a bit since they may be a little TOO much tire for many race courses, and performance oriented riding/training, so come race season they won't be a "mount and forget do everything kinda of tire" Check out the site for the full review.
I got 1:20 on the trainer this evening doing about 4 ten minute force intervals. Big gears, using big muscles, and a big 1,000 calorie burn.
Speaking of calorie burn, check this shit out...
Still not great (I still can NOT believe I gained that much weight, while burning 5,000 to 9,000 calories a week training. It is nice to see progress and I should be right on track for a Frank Schleckian fighting weight come spring time. Sooner if I catch what B-Man has (that would NOT be fun though).
UPDATE: Adam checked in and asked where I got the above graph from. It's from TrainingPeaks.com. When you enter your workouts, you have the option of entering your Daily Metrics. Weight is one of the selections. You can then graph the data etc.,.
I've also been hard core about tracking my calories, carbs, protein and fat. At first it was a bit time consuming, but now that I have all my favorite foods and meals organized it's super easy to keep track of all my calories consumed, burned, etc.,
Hope this helps. I use the "free" version of TraningPeaks.com. All you have to do is create an account and log in. There are training plans available for purchase from various coaches including Lynda Wallenfels (cool blogger, coach, mom, kick ass endurance racer, and teammate of Dave "The Titanium Bolt Shoulder" Harris.
