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?) […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
The month of January has absolutely flown by, and my primary goal of being consistent has been going well. This month I was mostly focused on getting back into the routine of working out. I wasn’t really focused on my times, mileage, or stats. As we head into February, consistency is still going to be […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
