Spinning with Seuss

A) That is GU Vanilla Flavor Gel that I am eating. The first gel was planned. The second gel was an afterthought, after realizing that it was living on my aerobar pad.

B) The background audio is "Horton Hears a Who".

C) I'm not sure what my phrase at the end of the video actually means. Turn the camera off, I guess.

Incidentally, I'm getting into fantastic shape for Pucon 70.3 coming up in mid-January 2009 - slamming down some mad indoor training rides and hill run repeats up the kazoo. I leave for Miami on Jan 7 for a week of acclimatization, then it's off to South America for a week-and-a-half.

Somehow, the knee is flawless, and each week I lay down more armor onto the knees and hips with fire hydrants, hip hikes, Gymstick leg swings, single leg deadlifts, single leg squats, and a host of other moves that you can see by clicking here.

Look out, Chile...

P.S. After this ride, I showered. The only towels in the bathroom were little River and Terran's ducky towels.

Hey Ben: Looks like you're focused on biking for the moment. When you think about swimming check out Garrett Weber-Gale's new freestyle DVD. It will make you go faster. See the trailer on his blog: For sale at swimroom:

Best of luck for you 2009 season.

I think that the ducky towels should be part of your race day tactic... it will certainly make your competitors wonder... and maybe even worry.
