I’m in a fantasy football league! Surprised? Me too… Am I going to start looking like this? If so, I may need proper scratching instructions.

Winter “miles”

And I thought that the pic of J on the path was homoerotic!

We talked ad nauseam about serious winter training and such. I don’t think that I’m going to be able to train hard on bike this winter. Unlike Chicago, where there is a relatively mild winter with a clear Lake Shore Path, the snow and salt in Madison are a bit prohibitive to speed (one can get miles, but the pace really is much slower) and seriously prohibitive to steel frames (oh how I’d love a carbon winter bike 😉 ). I’ll still have a base commute milage of 65 Miles/Week on a MTB (basically running 48-16 as the drivetrain seizes as soon as the slush gets nasty). I assume that I’ll do 25 mile snow rides once a week. But I need to start thinking seriously about Cross Training. Once a week racquetball is a lock. I think that when the snow hits that I’ll be putting in a fair amount of CX skiing (but classic not skate). I’m thinking about taking up laps at the pool (to this end I did buy goggles and a pink/purple cap). I need thoughts about this. Please, what will the four of us do to make sure that the instant that roads have lost their salt rime, we can effortlessly crank out a mid tempo 100K. I hate the idea of building base milage all spring. I’d like to be in 600K form by late April.


Not as Homoerotic as the above

I guess the 800lbs gorilla in the room is, “why not rollers?” That feels like contracting my word not expanding it. A. what are your thoughts? I know that you’re considering training hard next year. I’m pretty curious about knocking out a sprint tri next year, but running will have to be undertrained or I’ll have no knees to even start. But, I’ve done a 5K at a decent clip with no prep, surely I can do a 10 and pay for it after.

666 NES games in your browser–and very quick emulation too. This is one of those links I kinda wish I hadn’t found.

Most beautiful FPS ever?
