It's Monday and you all know what that means! I missed last week as I took a little hiatus from training, writing, reading and the such. I'm sure no one noticed.

Books I'm Listening to/Reading

The Conquest of Happiness by Burtrand Russell

The Girls by Emma Cline

Article of the Week

How Long Until You Lose Your Fitness? We all think about it. How long can I stop training and still expect to maintain the conditioning of all those hours of work?  This article provides a little insight into those questions.

Words that Caught My Eye

"Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air" ~ John Quincy Adams

Gear that is Cool

These Pinarello bikes are pretty sweet. The $14,500 Bolide TT is especially beautiful. Not really in my wheel house, but one can dream can't they?

Stretches of the Week

A triathlete's calves take a beating everyday. A good video on how to assess and tackle some of those tightness issues.


Happy Training!
