I’m excited to ride this week because it’s “feel week.” Usually I am a bit of a slave to my power meter data. I try to stay within the prescribed range. But this week my coach told me to put up a timer on my power meter and that’s it. Keep steady pressure on the … Continue reading Feel v data →
I did another gravel race today. I should be elated – I set a bunch of personal records on power and heart rate. But I’m not elated. I’m not a very patient person and I think I expected to see results faster. And I know I’m seeing results so … what is it? In the … Continue reading Earn it →
Got this from Seth Godin today: We change our mood as a result of how we act. Godin There is no right time to write, or sing, or act, or be kind. The right time is right now. Hemingway talked about showing up every morning before sunrise and writing. No matter how you feel. Just … Continue reading Attitude follows action →
Ryan Holiday’s post on not just letting things return to normal inspired this post. I’ll start by saying I feel very, very grateful to be alive today. COVID-19 has been horrible and not everyone has been so lucky. My uncle died, my neighbor died, millions died. Each day is a blessing. Today I went to … Continue reading I’m good with a new normal →
My parents bought a new place at Table Rock Lake. And I want to get good at fishing that lake. So far the fishing experience has been maddening. We went out on the lake for the first time in March or April. And boy did I get lucky right out of the gate. While he … Continue reading Fishing under docks →
I’m at the lake and I’ve been inside the whole time trying to figure out how to mix a podcast. It’s messy and hard and frustrating and I don’t sleep well or really do anything each day other than try to figure out how to use audacity software. Like anything, this will get easier with … Continue reading A messy, pretentious productivity post in which I cite Hemingway →
This post will be sort of nonsensical. I have lots of ideas. Everyone has lots of ideas. Ideas come in our brains; ideas fly out of our brains. For example, I have two substacks that I started and abandoned. The internet is just a big notebook. The most interesting ideas, though, are the ones that … Continue reading A spark of an idea →
I have a future post in me about “why do sports?” But today I just want to say: I crushed my gravel race yesterday. Major progress was made. There are a lot of lessons here. What you eat matters. I made some simple switches to what I eat during a ride and went from barely … Continue reading Crushing gravel →
I’m jinxed. Tomorrow is my second gravel race, this time in Smithville, Missouri. For the uninitiated, gravel races are on… unpaved roads. Like gravel, and mud and whatever else. Going into my last gravel ride, which was my first, I had one wish: don’t rain. So of course the night before it rained. The course … Continue reading Rain and gravel again →
