Congrats on the win! This is a great video, my hands were literally sweating by the time you got to the sprint, great effort. This is the next best thing to racing with a team/partner/friend. Unfortunately I don't have anyone to race with to learn racing strategies (club rides aren't the same) so this is the next best thing.

Thanks, sorry for not replying earlier. I'm sharing the better clips to show other's it's possible to race without being super fit. It pains me to hear riders say "I'm waiting until next year because I'm not in shape yet". Racing is the pretty much the best way to learn racing, at least for the most part. I hope to have another video or two up but this year hasn't been good for me.

This was a really fun show, I was over by the sound board. Great band, thanks for posting.

Average Heart Rate for February, both running and spinning (excluding today because I'm running this afternoon) 135 bpm.

Good stuff Mike. That'll likely be my target number too.

Its amazing how much harder you have to work on the bike (perceived effort) to maintain a HR similar to running.

Yep. Much more suffering to get positive progress. That's why trainers rock. No distractions just WORK

Ah, I see. Egad. I've become a dinosaur. Thanks Mike.

Went to an amateur chefs night the other night and among other things I had some spicy tomato soup with roasted red peppers that was so powerfully spicy I couldn't eat the whole (small) portion. There were some cool apps like candied, peppered bacon on a stick, bacon wrapped dates and more. Can't wait till next year to see what people make.

Thanks for posting this one too. This was a great show, the 3 song encore was amazing.

My son and I caught their soundcheck with about 20 other people and got our pictures taken with them - I came back later for the show, one of the best I've seen, they have such good songs

I just organized my runs from the the last 3 months in order of ascending average HR to compare average pace and its actually showing a speed increase of over 1 minute/mile, closer to 1.5min/mile. Its hard to see this trend on a daily basis, but when I zoomed out and compared the same HR with similar distances, the increase in speed is plain as day.

I still have a lot of base miles to go to increase my endurance, but there's really no rush, I'm just very happy to see the improvement.

That is a good way of analyzing the details.  Some people get caught up in the daily numbers and see no progress, but if they take a step back (and be patient), they might actually identify some real improvement.

Thanks, I just joined a gym near my job. Going to put the lifting to use. I was looking for a reason to do some power lifting again.

A Great Freeze Over the Great Lakes | NASA Aqua
February 21, 2014: Ice cover on North America’s Great Lakes reached 88 percent in mid-February 2014—levels not observed since 1994. The average maximum ice extent since 1973 is just over 50 percent. It has surpassed 80 percent just five times in four decades. The lowest average ice extent occurred in 2002, when only 9.5 percent of the lakes froze.

The images above were acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite on February 19, 2014. The first image shows the Great Lakes in natural color in the early afternoon, when ice covered 80.3 percent of the lakes, according to NOAA’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory.

“Persistently low temperatures across the Great Lakes region are responsible for the increased areal coverage of the ice," said Nathan Kurtz, cryospheric scientist NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Cold air and winds remove heat from the fresh water until it reaches the freezing point, at which point ice begins to form on the surface. “Low temperatures are the dominant mechanism for thickening the ice, but secondary factors like clouds, snow, and wind also play a role.”

“We had an early ice season this year, owing to cold temperatures in the fall and early winter,” added George Leshkevich of NOAA’s Great Lakes lab. “Ice was reported on bays and harbors of the Great Lakes as early as the end of November, as opposed to the normal timing of mid-December.”

The frozen lakes have implications well beyond the water surface and the winter. Extensive ice cover on the Great Lakes can change the patterns and amounts of the famous “lake effect” snowfall in the region, explained Walt Meier, a cryospheric scientist at NASA Goddard. When the lakes are mostly ice free, cold west or north winds blow over the warmer water, pick up moisture, and then drop snow on the lee side of the lakes (usually eastern and southern shores). When the lakes freeze, the effect generally shuts down. However, the region is still receiving a fair amount of snow this winter due to other weather patterns, Meier noted.

Lake levels could be affected in the summer. Winter ice cover generally reduces evaporation during winter months. If that turns out to be the case in 2014, it would be “good news for local water supplies, as well as for shipping and recreational use,” Meier said.

A 2012 study published in the Journal of Climate by scientists from NOAA’s Great Lakes lab found that winter ice cover on Lake Superior decreased 79 percent from 1973 to 2010. The study also showed that ice cover on the lakes is highly variable and difficult to predict.

Heading out for a #MAF (slow) 10 miler. It's been a while. Should be interesting with all the fresh snow. Plows haven't come out yet. #running

No, your max speed on the trainer this morning was not 47mph, which means your avg pace was also slower. I think you need new/accurate equipment. #cycling
