So are you saying that you run faster with like, no music? That's different. I have literally grown somewhat dependent on my playlists to capitalize on my output. But then again, it's mostly for my more extreme training.


Could just be habit, too.

Yeah - I do the same... the problem is that I seem to settle in to a play list. So, when I forget it, I have more urgency or something - I push harder in fear that I am going slower. It is psychological... and kind of weird. Usually, after one of those, I need to adjust my playlist.

Best thing about being in Chicago is that I know the cops in all the towns I frequent.

That's a sad gym when you have to COLLECT all the weights to get 112....

You're better off doing machines and body weight right?

1MOREMOD walks into a gym, sees that the Dumbbells only go up to 120lbs, grunts, calls the gym Curves, turns around and walks out. Never to return again.

Must have gym with Dumbbells over 200+.

Yeah, well for the lat pull downs and chest press, that's actually a decent amount of weight for moderate reps and pump. Like I said, I don't have much time in there in the mornings lol. about 10 minutes of my 30 minutes is warm-up/cool down.

1MOREMOD is indeed an alien. Fueled by #beerforgains.

Yeah, haha. The perception of hard work is usually quantified appropriately when we aren't monitoring as we go along. But that's remarkable, nonetheless!
I supposed i should clarify. My pedals measure power independently and i only had one with a dead battery. That's the one that talks to my garmin which meant my garmin was displaying no power readings. I have an app on my phone (for back up) that takes to my pedals independently. In using that, the power output shown on the display was only from one pedal. Power figures for one pedal typically = 50% of actual power.

Maybe it was the psychological effect of seeing such a low number when i'm using to seeing double that made me work harder? I mean i was doubling the number in my head while riding but when reading power from only one pedal, it only moves in 5 watt increments. In trying to stay above 100 watts i was trying to see 105 more often than 100. By doubling my best 20 min power average, i was at 217. The best 20 min average I've put down (outside of that TT race) was 209 watts. 8 watts doesn't sound like much but just a hand full of watts when you're over 200 can make a significant difference.

On the note of 8 watts making a significant difference, i've read that by shaving my legs i can reduce my drag coefficient by what equals a 7 - 12 watt gain over 40k, depending on my Chewbacca factor. On the Chewy scale, i think i'll probably gain about 10 watts, which is huge. So far though, i'm not jonesing bad enough for extra wattage to justify shave my legs.

I thought that my comprehension of this post was completely lost until I was saved by the last paragraph.

Can you hook up a couple leads to your legs and a capacitor to store the electricity generated by the static coming from your Chewbacca legs? Then feed that energy back into a small electric motor attached to your bicycle wheel.

A lot of the hotels we started ended up cleaning up the areas around them, so we established relationships with the the police departments way back. When I started shadowing my dad and working in the hotels, I always talked with the cops when they'd stop by. Nice guys, some of the most genuine people I know.

Also, a few of the GMs for our regions are married to higher tier cops in the towns. I also provide them with free coffee, donuts, and lunch from the cafes in the hotels. And I occasionally give them rides in the whips.

I lived/worked in a small town back in the day for about 10 years.

The town had a very small gym I'd use.

One of my professional COI's was an attorney and he just also happened to be a former BYU and pro O-lineman.

When he walked into the gym - every 45 and 35 lb plate was used for the next 1.5 hours.
