The following are the most recent posts in the weblog:
I started using the Bosu a while ago in the local gym and found it to be an excellent new tool, so much so that my wife bought me one for Christmas! Here are some links to exercises that might be worth trying.
Well, its been about 2.5 years since posting on this blog. A lot of things have changed since that last post, including the facts that I am now a father (hello Alex!), I am somewhat fit and also starting to spend time reading and researching on the web about fitness.
Todays stage in the 2006 Tour de France will be an epic one, and I'm looking forward to
riding watching the sufferfest.
Sometimes you need a little something to help you to dig a little deeper. Well, the sports world at the moment is not only offering the Tour de France, but the World Cup, and Fabian Grosso of Italy provides a moment of inspiration as he scores against Germany.
The idea behind the literature search on sleeping was to try and understand more about the topic so that I could come up with a sleeping strategy, one that included a knowledge of how to 'hack my sleep' in order to get more bang for my buck.
More inspirational footage from the TdF, this time the 2001 assault on the Alpe d'Huez. That's right, the stage with "The Look".

In general, triathletes are harassed by roadies for their poor bike handling skills; descending, for example, is one of them.
