Still ticking

Yesterday's workout got cut short, but I did over half of it. I went to LAF after work (got there around 9:00). They close at 11:00 (bastards used to be open until 12:00!) so I knew I was not going to get it all in. I did the burpee/rowing workout first. 21 burpees, 500m row, 15 burpees, 500m row, 9 burpees, 500m row. Finished in 11:00 flat. I must say, I liked this workout.

I rested for a whole 90 seconds or so and got on the stationary bike. I immediately started in on the three miler as I figured I was already warmed up. I lacked power - perhaps from the workout I just did or perhaps because I am not getting enough rest. Rested my one minute and then did the six miler, rested 2 minutes, did the 9 miler and that was all I had time for. I finished just as they were turning the lights off.

I was planning on doing 12 miles on the indoor trainer tonight after my 400s but decided that rest is an important element. I am just going to have to let myself off the hook this one time and hope there aren't too many more misses in the next couple of weeks.


  1. Hello-

    My name is Frank, and I'm writing from Global Ride Productions ( We make virtual cycling training DVDs for indoor cycling. As a cycling blogger, we thought you might be interested in writing a review of our product. We are willing to send you one of our Italy DVDs, something we sell on our site for $30 plus shipping, in exchange for you writing a review. You don't have to send the DVD back – it’s our thank you for helping spread the word about a new approach to training.

    Our virtual cycling DVDs are different from any others you may have tried. We travel to a new country every year, have multiple coaching tracks on every DVD, licensed music, and bonus yoga, pilates or strength training sessions designed for cyclists at the end of every ride. They're a great product and we just want to spread the word.

    Also, If you are interested in coaching one of these for an upcoming project, please let us know as well. We are always looking for new voice/coaching talent – the main ingredients are cycling knowledge, enthusiasm and a decent microphone setup. In exchange for coaching, we give you super exposure on our website, in the credits, and even in the navigation menu of the DVD itself.

    If you'd like to do a review, or be considered for coaching, just shoot me back a message with a mailing address and we can discuss it.

    Please drop me a line if you want the DVD.

    Great job on your WOD in the middle of the night again. Looks like you also got a DVD cycling sponser as well!!!

  3. Frank,

    I am interested in reviewing the DVD. As you have probably noticed, I like to write so this would be fun for me. Not sure about the coaching part - can I let you know on that part upon reviewing the DVD? My email is I prefer not to post my address on the blog. Please send me an email and I will reply.
