For the past six weeks, I’ve been following the Zwift FTP Builder plan. This program was designed as four workouts a week, with the goal of building up sustained power on the bike. With my FTP threshold set at 210 watts, I’ve been slowly building up my base. The primary goal for this 6 […]
I cracked myself up with the title of today’s post. I’ve been bicycling quite a bit on Zwift over the past six weeks, closing out my first full FTP Build program. With only two workouts to go, it is about that time that Ellie and I are switching gears (get it? like a bike gear?) […]
Woke up to incredibly icy streets and trees today! Be careful out there, everyone!
As per the norm here at 2 Fat Nerds, each Wednesday is a weigh-in day, where we publicly shame encourage our members to share their workouts and weight numbers for the past week. It’s all about accountability, and earning those sweet anti-fat […]
I came across an interesting tweet from Hal Higdon, a juggernaut in the sport of running. Famous for both his writing at Runners World, coaching, as well as racing in the sport himself. I thought i’d share it here, as well as my own experiences at the half-marathon distance.
Why do my training plans go no further than 20 miles for long runs. I consider the pavement between 20 & 26 as sacred ground: not for training, to be tread upon only with race number on your chest.

To summarize – he is a believer […]
Happy annual day of annoyance that follows a Patriots super bowl win.
On Saturday, Ellie and I watched the first episode of Tidying Up With Marie Kondo on Netflix. For those of you who are unaware of the latest sensation sweeping the nation, Marie Kondo is a professional organizer from Japan who encourages people to declutter […]
From Buffalo to Baltimore, over the course of the next 28 days, Ellie, Adrienne, Jeff and I are going to attempt to cover a collective 339 miles!
Whether be by walking, running, elliptical, biking, or skate-boarding, the four of us will attempt to cover 339 miles of activity in the next 28 days. This breaks down […]
Today is the last day of the first month of 2019. To recap what my theme for 2019 is, everybody say together, consistency. I’ve struggled with my fitness goals and keeping my weight where I want it to be for the past few years now. With the arrival of 2019, Ellie and I set our […]
Buffalo rarely shuts down from a snow storm, but today is one of those days. We got the message last night that the university was shutting down, and just like when I was a kid, I ran around the house screaming my head off.
Per-usual here at 2FNS, Wednesdays mean weigh-in days. Lets dive right into […]
I love Buffalo at the end of January. The Lake Erie monster knocks on our door step, making everyone rush home from work early and grab a six-pack of their favorite beer. Our local politicans even instruct our city’s residents on how much to buy, based on the late Mayor Jimmy Griffin.
Winter arrives tonight. Nothing […]
Over the weekend, hockey-mentor Julien called me up and said we were heading to the ponds for some pick up hockey. Who was I to disagree? I grabbed my gear, including my Garmin watch, and met up with him at Ives Park in Tonawanda. To my surprise, this is a rather popular spot for some […]
