    I think we could put together a pretty nice cheering squad for Tobin.

    The more the merrier. I'm going to need help feeding the crazy man. Especially if I don't get there in time since I'll already be back in school.

    CapnWTF was my training partner this past Saturday. We rode a bunch and also rescued a baby goat.

    I joined a gym back in November and have been there MWFs exercising. After the running deal was over, I wanted to include some lower body weight lifting per Joe Friel, so Jennifer signed up to tortur.... I mean train me. She has me doing things that bring me to the verge of tears and other things the bring me to the verge of throwing up. She's been awesome at making me stick to proper form and ensuring I do the correct number of reps, and take enough time between each set.

    Love is... throwing a medicine ball at your husband.

    Good thinking on Jen's part, nothing gets you ready for a stem into the gentlemens sausage like a medicine ball to the pork sword! Hope you were wearing a cup!

    The basement (Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop). The guy that is facing sideways at his computer is MellowRonnie (Ted Arnold). He's a super good guy, and when he's not wearing one of the hundread different hats that he wears around the bikeshop, he is a freelance writer for various cycling periodicals. And if you're a regular reader of various cycling journals, mags, ect... you've very likely read some of his handiwork. The other guy who is blurry is David Mider a.k.a Blueplate Media. He is an incredibly talented graphic artist who does most if not all of MJ's graphic work as well as other variously related entities (Team Radioshack's website for example).

    I'm hear at the shop this evening for a meeting... a race meeting specifically for the Mellow Johnny's Classic which is a big UCI mountain bike race coming up in less than two weeks. A few years back Lance Armstrong decided to hold a mountain bike race at his ranch in Dripping Springs, TX and I was called to help out and have been playing the role of "Ring Master" of the race events ever since. Lately Jen's & my life has been full of lots of preparations for that event.
    The MJ's team is incredible to work with, very talented people with a passion to get people onto bicycles and ensure that they have a really good time. It's been an honor and pleasure for us to work with them on events the past few years.

    I've been able to talk to lots of folks who've done LV100 and am getting lots of different advice.

    One person I'm paying especially close attention to is my friend SuperDave... he was the primary support person for a guy who's gone to the event twice one time winning and the other time 2nd place. Dave knows his stuff.

    The first thing Dave told me: "learn to eat on the bike" Luckily I've got that down, but I'll keep practicing.
    The next thing: "dial in what you're going to eat and drink, and start practicing with it during long rides"

    So I've been experimenting with different things to eat. I'll be burning between 7-10k calories during the event and although I won't be able to consume that much, I need to figure out quickly what I'm going to eat, how much of it and at what intervals.

    I picked up one of these from a corner store in Austin and thought it might be perfect. I remember eating these when I worked over in Europe. I think "Haselnuss-Schnitte" directly translates to "life changingly delicious" or something similar. If you like Nutella, you'll love these things, it's essentially nutella spread between two waffle-waffers. I'm a big sucker for Nutella. The only problem I had with this particular snack is the waffer part got crumbly in the wrapper while in my pocket when I was riding. I really like the concept, so perhaps I'll figure something out with Nutella in it.

    This past weekend I had the good fortune to be able to ride one of my favorite trail, Pace Bend, a whole bunch.
    My Saturday riding partners were CalvinBike (he was too fast to snap a photo of)

    toobin if it makes any difference when i was going the long stuff i stuck strictly to easily soluble carbs/cals. The hammer gel flask and Cytomax (never tried hammer products but should have.)
    Anyhoo don’t cross simple carbs with complex carbs. Matlodextrin is your friend – cain sugar or corn syrup is the devil. For every hour I did 2 servings of hammer gel 1 16.9oz of cytomax (extra water bottle of water if necessary.)
    this is a great article on what not to do
    http://www.hammernutrition.com/knowl...wledge-section
    they used to have a super awesome PDF about fueling and could adapt it for nonhammer sources but i'm having a hard time finging it right now. this is a good place to start
    http://www.hammernutrition.com/knowl...ced-knowledge/
    the main thing i have realized is that i was lacking electrolites probably the whole time no matter what i was taking even although i accidently got it right most of the time.

    Saturday 4/23/11
    75 miles. 3 counties. 2 Rivers. 6 River Crossings, one wet river crossing. 3 deer, 1 fox, 1 rat, 1 racoon.
    It was a fantastic day to be on a bike!

    My training partners for the day: Marco, George, Hi-Me, Dan, Lee, Charlie, Audrey, Keith, Crozier.
    I am very thankful to have had these folks along pedaling with me.

    Hi-Me encouraging George up "Col du Madre Santa".
    Very nice climb. Allegedly 18% avg, kicking up to 23% in spots.


    Crozier trying his best to stay dry.


    Tadem riding is one crazy thing. Tandem riding on a centimeter of algae and water is a display of big time guts. Hats off to Charlie & Audrey.


    Dan the man, Crozier, Hi-Me & Lee cruzing down River Rd (Guadalupe) a.k.a. Reefer Rd.


    These guys made Col du Madre Santa look easy.


    Lee, George & Crozier crusing across the Dam.

    More tweeking food intake.

    SuperDave feeds the racer he works with Nutella, honey & Peanut Butter stuffed along with banana slices inside a King's Hawaiian Sweet roll.
    I tried it but with a begian waffle.


    I also tried mashed potato(e)s & grilled chicken spread on a belgian waffle.


    I ate them during the entire ride and they both settled very well, better than I expected. I felt fresh all the way through the ride. I'm going to try a thinner waffle next time.

    Might I suggest something along the lines of a crepe? Being able to roll it up might make things a lot easier.
    It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a mojo.

    That may be very good. I'll check to see if Kellog's® Eggo® Brand will consider puttting a crepe product on the market.
