So, Dad's going to be home tomorrow and the day after and the day after.
Never underestimate time spent with your kids.
So men a hundred years from now know who he is.
Black, black black.
My third position at the worlds last year was a very good result for me. And yes I was thinking for a moment to prepare for only cyclo-cross this year because there was a good chance for me to try to be the world champion. But, I realise that for a non-Belgian rider it isn't possible to focus only on the cyclo-cross season because if you want to make some money you need to race in both seasons. So I do my best knowing I can't focus 100 percent in 'cross.
Watching what I eat and when. With the cross racing, I have only gained 3 pds. since July. Usually, I gain about 8 pds. over the winter. My problem is that I am always hungry, so even though my activity decreases in the winter, I still eat as much as I would during the summer. Now, though, if I can keep my weight where it is now, I'll have less to lose later. Didn't they always say that Jan's biggest problem was that he gained too much weight during the off season, thereby inhibiting his training in the spring?
Looking at my week's workouts, they are longer and harder than I have come up with on my own. That can only be a good thing.
I can't wait to get the power meter, then I should be able to do some real targeted training.
Nope. See ya. Gone. So be it. I'll go out and buy that company and do my own wheels. I'll make my own wheels. I don't need your wheels. I'll make better wheels. I'll make cooler wheels, that's for sure.
We just got another phone call from another sponsor who is wavering. And go! See ya. I don't care. I'll buy all the equipment. I'll make my own. Next! And guess what? I'll make it better, cooler, and I'll take your market share. Next! If that's the way you really feel about this sport, and it's just an opportunity, then you shouldn't be in the sport. There's more to it than the opportunity. Absolutely I'm in it for the opportunity, but there is more to it. There are people, there are lives. So no, you can go and disappear, HED, but guess what? Tyler is still racing for me.
He makes $200 or $300+ jeans now and people buy them. Scary thing is that he might just have enough money to actually carry through on his threat and buy some of these companies.
A New Level by Pantera is on there because the song pounds for just over 3 minutes with a chorus of "A new level of confidence and power." It is also strategically placed at the end of the effort because the last minute was supposed to balls to the walls, everything left.
Times Like These by the Foo Fighters was the first cool down song:
it's times like these you learn to live again
it's times like these you give and give again
it's times like these you learn to love again
it's times like these time and time again
Result: 169 avg. and 187 high.
The test will begin with Hit the Lights and end with Pantera. My HR during the 2 races that I wore the monitor during was around 165 bpm average with highs at 189.
