muesli for breakfast! (new recipe from “The Feed Zone Cookbook”)
I have been making friends with the mail man lately as he has to bring me all these books lol!
The middle book is for me, the other two books are for me to learn how to feed my husband with….and there is another one coming.
I cant believe he claims I am his trainer…..what do I know about training and feeding a cyclist? o.0
Oh well time to learn, and that is good, I like learning :)
I have ordered 3 nutrition books for endurance athletes and one triathlon book…the triathlon book is for me (someday ill be good enough to do a sprint at least….darn running) the nutrition books are for me and my husband.
My husband has started a goal to try to become a professional cyclist by the year 2016. He has decided to ride 10000 miles (yes you read that right TEN THOUSAND MILES) in the year 2013 alone and has started a blog to document his entire journey. So Im going to promote him :)
Follow my husband at any one of these sites!
yes for all you cycling nerds out there, there is a giant bright yellow gary fisher poster hanging in my living room. ;P
The husbands race in pictures! (he was the darling of the race because of his mustache the announcer kept cheering for him and making the crowd cheer for him lol! They were calling him “Stache”) …he got pulled …aka lapped and out of the race….with one lap to go….not bad for his first race as a cat 4 and they were mixed in with the master A’s too.
He did better than last year as far as time goes…he did minutes faster on everything! But because he moved up a category he got about the same placement as last year.
All and all it was super fun!
Cycling has ruined me, I read this as beware of Leopard (as in the team)……
apparently its actually part of a quote from “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”.
Here’s a little secret the world’s pharmaceutical companies would just as soon you didn’t find out: Besides providing a litany of physical benefits — weight control, lowering of cholesterol, increased stamina — there’s growing anecdotal evidence that regular, intense exercise improves…
The second just before Andy realises he’s going to ride into a pole. :P
He dreamed that he was at a bike race and George Hincapie asked him to watch his kid until the race was over. My husband agreed.
After the race Thor Hushovd came up and said George had sent him to pick the kid up.So my husband let him go.
Just then George came up and asked to pick up his child. My husband told him Thor had said that he was supposed to pick the kid up. George looked very angry and said “Not again! He does this EVERY TIME there is a stage the next day that he wants to win! We have to get my child back!”
So my husband , George and he thinks Cadel Evans take off running in the direction Thor was going.
After about five min of running my husband suggested that they would move a lot faster if they were on their bikes. Cadel and George were like “Oh we didnt think of that! “
So they got on their bikes and started riding after Thor.
Soon they saw a cyclist they thought was Thor and raced to catch up to them, My husband got ahead of the cyclist and locked his brakes up coming to a sharp stop and the other two closed in from behind so the person had nowhere to go.
But it wasnt Thor it was a girl, so my husband asked her if she had seen a little kid. She looked confused and said no. Hincapie rolled his eyes and asked if she had seen Thor Hushovd. At that she got a goofy grin and pointed down the road (obviously a fan girl lol)
So they let the girl go and race down the road to find Thor. They finally catch him but the kid is no where in sight. Somehow they get him to give them clues to where he has hidden the child. After hours of searching they find the kid much to George’s great relief and Thors disappointment cause he was going to use it as blackmail…
Then my husband woke up. ;)
(I find this hilarious because in it George Hincapie thought is safer to leave his kid with some one who he didnt know rather than someone Thor might know and that Thor had obviously done this before on a quite regular basis and yet was not in trouble lol!)
The moral of the story do NOT park in the bike lane in Vilnius Lithuania or the mayor will crush your car with a tank. ;)
(personally I think all cities should adopt this method lol!)
