  • I just finished a 100 km running week. I’m not sure if I have ever run that much in one week previously, but I didn’t find it that tough. I think the most difficult part was running INSIDE around a track for two, 2-hour runs and one, 3-hour run. The weather here is still cold […]

  • Hey everyone. Not much to report aside from my training is going fairly well – just plugging away at the training program my coach Jason Yanota made up for me. The riding is all inside on the mag trainer which, for shorter-harder workouts, isn’t so bad. I’ve been in dental hell since getting a pile […]

  • It looks like Jason Yanota’s most excellent training program is paying off. I hit 270 watts today for my 20 minute test. That’s not all that outstanding compared to the world of what is possible, but considering that I started at a wimpy 250 watts about 6 weeks ago, that’s not bad. As you might […]

    Man, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged… I’ve been busy and I guess there just hasn’t been much news of interest to report. Until just now. It seems that the 24 hour human powered vehicle record from 2006 in Eureka, CA was picked up by the editors of the 2009 edition of the Guinness […]

  • 24 hour HPB record report

    Wow… “this is one of those moments that I will never, ever forget” I thought. My senses were being overloaded. It was nothing less than absolutely spectacular.
