Weigh-In Wednesday January 23rd, 2019: 50 to 23 . . .

By |

As the title of this post is odd, I wanted to clarify. We literally gave up 50 goals in pond hockey last night. Woof. It is a 4 on 4 format, no goalies with short nets. Typically games are about 20 to 30 goals or so . . . so we got beat bad.

Anyway, Welcome […]

Back on Cross-Country Skis.

By |

Ever since my days at Garnet Hill as a kid, I’ve loved cross-country skiing. Perhaps it was the shuttle that drove you back to the lodge from the bottom, or the neatly groomed tracks, but whatever it was, I loved spending the day on my skis up in the Adirondacks. So, with snow in the […]

By |

Hello everyone for this weeks addition of Weigh-In Wednesday! Each week members are encouraged to submit their workouts, and weight for weekly accountability as we post the results for all the world to see. Let’s get right to it!

Overall, we had a mixed week. That’s okay, because one bad week never hurt anyone! Consistency […]

Zwift FTP Builder Week 3

By |

So far, so good on the Zwift front! I’m now entering week three of the FTP Builder plan, which is designed to increase my base functional threshold power. I thought now would be a good time to quickly recap the first two weeks back in the saddle, and talk about how things are going.

What I Like about Zwift

Weigh-In Wednesday January 9th, 2019: Go Go Go!

By |

Hello Everyone! Another Wednesday is here, and you know what that means, the dreaded weigh-in! Let’s just dive right in to the main event, weights over-time.

Not bad everyone! I know getting through the weekend stalled a lot of our efforts, but no one gained week-to-week! The hardest part for me personally is saying yes to […]

Ab Work? More Like Bleh Work.

In less than a few months’ time, I will be sitting with Ellie and our friend Jen in the hot springs of Iceland. While that sounds amazing, and I am looking forward to it, I have quite the beer belly going that promptly needs to be addressed. Aside from diet and exercise in general, the […]

Diving into Cycling with Zwift! What is FTP???

By |

A couple of months ago I started using an indoor cycling program called Zwift. For the full review of my setup and my initial impression, here’s the post. I took a little bit of break at the start of December, but since the New Year I am back in the saddle, literally.

Week 1 Success, on […]

Weigh-In Wednesday January 2nd, 2019: New Year, New Us!

By |

With the new year, my number one resolution is to put real time and energy into the blog again. To do this, it really starts with the Weigh-In Wednesday posts. The whole point of this blog was accountability from the very beginning, and not doing the weigh-in post is not a very good way to […]

Weigh-In Wednesday November 28th, 2018: Post-Turkey Day!

By |

I am going to be kind, and not post the aftermath of Thanksgiving for everyone who submitted this week. Happy Holidays!

Better get moving for next week though, because I’m going to put you all on blast 🙂

Baltimore City Turkey Trot 2018!

By |

On Thanksgiving, Ellie, Jeff, Adrienne and myself woke up to a brisk Baltimore morning and made our way over to the Waverly YMCA for a good ole’ fashioned turkey trot! None of us have been running, so expectations were low, but we had a blast!

Before the race, we did a quick tour of the inside […]
