  1. Hey Ben, cool video! sorry to hear about the split, but glad you're eating again! yeah..my body had a fit when we started eating cooked again. everything tastes so different once you've been raw. i didn't go back to raw fully, but have kept up with tons of fruits/veg in the diet and my energy levels are actually higher than they've ever been

  6. Thanks! We went vegetarian together, then vegan - so we are good at supporting each other Bad at updating this week, here's the cycling mileage Tues 4.21 Wed 18.99 Thurs 19.21 Fri 19.21 Sat 21.23
  7. Glad to see you posting! Plant Fusion is good stuff!
  8. Yeah it was really fun, definitely something we both needed. Lots of talking and laughing and watching the sunset. I did a short 4.21 ride tonight after I got home from work, my legs were too tired today to cycle commute today. Nice night time ride, barely any cars, hit all green lights. Starting to get faster for sure, 14.1 average mph tonight! I may work on my road bike tomorrow, I had a set back this weekend and had to re-do the entire bottom bracket, so I'm basically where I left off a few weeks ago. Oh well, I'll have it soon enough! Andrea
  9. just finished a 21 mile road ride with my husband! it was nice, because the farther we got out of the city, the cooler the weather! took 1:38:54, so right around 13mph.
  10. started running again today! trying to slim down my upper thighs and mid section. i haven't run in a few months, but my pace is faster than where i left off... 1.42 miles in 15:13
  11. tested out the clipless pedals on some light trails today. just over 9 miles of riding. we left the house too late so it started to get pretty hot out. had only a small fall on a tight corner. i didnt land on a cactus, but somehow still ended up covered in tons of spines...
  12. rode 9.45 miles in 43 minutes and 9.55 miles in 44 minutes or so. rode to work to buy a floor pump. clipless pedals rock! my speeds up to 13mph, which is still slow, but not bad for a mtb with super knobby tires
  13. 12 miles today. a little more than half was dirt canals. it was during sunset too, very pretty! new shoes/pedals are for sure improving my speed/climbing. my dad also rode 10 miles today
  14. Rode about 20 miles total yesterday. I got clipless pedals and shoes for my mtn bike so I went on a 16 mile road ride to test them out. Definitely improved my speed for sure, and it was only the first day using them. Hopefully I'll be able to ride some light trails today to test them off road. So far for May I've got 125 miles in. I'd really like to break 400 so I gotta step it up a bit the next few weeks.
  15. It was actually from the Veganomicon cookbook. Wicked good!
  16. I made some chickpea cutlets for him a few years ago, and the recipe used vital wheat gluten to hold them together. He forgot the chickpea part and thought he could just use the VWG. he rode over 7 miles on his mtb yesterday at a pace of like 10mph. i'm so proud! I rode 9.45 yesterday in 50 mins. I had a flat on my bike so I had to take the 7 speed comfort bike...she's not built for speed.. Rode 2.78 or so part way home in like 15 mins. Taking a rest day today, since I've been riding my bike for like days straight
  17. Thanks, Kareno! He just called me this morning all excited about his first pair of bike shorts. And that he bought a box of vital wheat gluten and needs me to tell him how to use it Made it 9.45 miles to work in 44 minutes yesterday! On the way home I totally bonked, and I had a slow leak that I had to stop and fix so that took like 55 minutes.
  18. Since May 1st, I've logged 73.5 road miles commuting! I joined the National Bike Challenge on Endomondo.com, so that's kind of been motivating me to ride as much as possible. We even rode our bikes to dinner the other night I've got 20 more miles of commuting today, and for the next 5 days. I also worked on my commuter road bike on Thursday night after work. It's an 80s Schwinn that I'm converting into a single speed. It's almost finished! Once it is, I won't have to commute on my heavy ass mtb. Andrea
  19. On Saturday I did 9.45 miles in 50 min, and 9.75 miles in 50min. Not bad after just getting over the flu. Rode only like 2 miles yesterday nice and easy to the post office. I rode a short 3 mile sport loop mtb track yesterday. I'm going to start training today for next years mountain biking season! I really want to move out of Cat 3 into Cat 2 so I have a lot of work to do. The courses in Cat 3 are kind of insulting, more like the junior courses, so I want a challenge next season.
  20. Speaking of my pops, he just got a bike today! He's gonna try biking to work I've been down and out with the flu, so no riding the past few days. I did just get in an easy 4 miles or so to get some fresh air Andrea
  21. Karen, It makes me so happy! I think he had some meat on Greek Easter (this past Sunday), but when he called me today when he was eating lunch it was a nice healthy salad! I'm just happy that he's starting to actually read labels and try and eat more whole fruits and veg! Today's commute times: 9.45 mile road ride in 45 min 9.75 mile road ride in 49 min
  22. Yesterday's commute was 9.45 miles in 42 minutes and 9.75 miles in 42 minutes. My legs are still tight from my race, but the ride helped for sure. I also checked the pressure on my tires and I have been riding at like 5 under the minimum psi so now she cruises like a dream on the road Andrea
  23. 28 mile road race today! Finished in 2:21:46!
  24. Dude...my dad is STILL eating vegan. I guess he lost 7 pounds just this week so he's pretty pumped up. He sends me texts of his food and tells me what he has for dinner, etc. its wicked cute I've been riding everywhere lately, but I get home late so I never remember to post just from the past few days: Saturday 7th: 9.45 miles in 44min, 9.75 miles in 47 Sunday 8th: 6.76 mi in 30 min, 6.76 mi in 30 min Monday 9th: 9.45 mi in 42.5 min (yay!), 9.75 mi in 48.5min I got a free road race entry to El Tour de Mesa this Saturday, I'm doing the 28 mile one!
