2nd Semester Ending

Second semester is almost over!! Got one paper to write and then a final for stats and I am done. The bad news is I start Summer I the following week. That entails two classes a night on Tuesday and Thursday night! Dreading that with a passion.

Biking has been on and off, I went on the Muffin ride last Saturday. Hung on strong, hopefuly hit up a group ride tomorrow. Not doing too strong on it, been running more. I have felt great recently, just need to keep doing cardio and doing what I can.

Yard work will soon take up all of my time sadly. Time is of the essence!

Feelng Good

My wife and I have both been doing great in our workouts. Been making it work around school and my full time job. Weight room time is paying off huge, strength going up, cant wait to see how this translates onto the road when I am doing long saddle hours. My weight is still at 165, need to look at my intake of food. I eat mostly healthy goods, but snacks and junk food I beleive can be doing me in with wasted calories.

I have plenty of work with my MBA in the next few weeks, one class ends and another starts up. Hopefully have some good things coming up with mid terms and finals and possibly a new job search. We will see what happens!

Rejuvination

Feeling great. Gym and biking indoors, my body is accepting the new workout routine pretty well. Working on core strength now and building my cardio slowly. Do not want to over exert myself too early.

School is going ok for now. Mid term tomorrow night in Stats, been stressing about it, studying constantly and hoping to get into the 90s. Hoping all goes well.

Still no race plans except fr a 15k on Block Island in September, maybe the Norwell Road Race and the Jamestown classic. I want to be able to hang with A group guys by late Spring.

Have a great time training in this miserable cold of the Northeast/all over the USA.

Last week workout 1.3 hours cycling. 2 hours strength workouts.

Pats Lose

The Patriots lose. Brutal, nothing else to say.

On another note I finished my first semester of my MBA program with a 3.5! Feels great, aiming for a 3.7 this semester!

On a workout front it is hot and cold. So hard to stay on track there with so much else going on. Been to the gym last week and I hope to keep on going consistently.

My man cave is complete!! I will post some pictures soon once I upload some of them to my laptop.

I am also accepting applications for the 2014 cycling season for The Boston Road Club.

MBA Finals

Today is my finals for my first semester of MBA courses! Exciting times. Cycling/running/gym time has taken a hit. I laid down tile in my basement on Thanksgiving night and I still need to paint it and mount a TV and place molding. A lot to do and so close to Christmas.

Tour of the Battenkill might be on my radar, I just need to use my time better!

Stop being a putz! My mantra!

Doping

Sick and tired of hearing all this doping "news" in cycling. It's all we talk about. Vicious circle. Granted the riders caused this phenomenon and they can't be trusted but with no doping positives in the recent Vuelta we keep on accusing Horner of cheating and any other winner. It is getting ridiculous.

With that I'll continue to enjoy riding my bike! Dope free of course!

Reinvigoration

This past week has been great! MBA classes going well, finished a major project and got about halfway done with another one. Feeling good.

Ive been on my bike twice this past week and hit the gym twice. Working on my core and upper body. I hate the sensation of fading and numbness in arms due to a weak core. I'll continue to hit the gym 2-3 times a week and then I'll incorporate 2 rides that are long and slow and 1 intense pace ride.

Cannot wait for my basement to be completed. That will be awesome to have my pain cave ready to go for the winter.

Also, wanted to give a shout out to the Veterans of this great nation who made many sacrifices to keep us all free Your sacrifices will never be forgotten.
