    We came from Branchburg, and to Branchburg we do return... I love living out here in Stewartsville except for being far from family and school. Our current residence is not in any proximity to safe roads for running (which I CAN do with daughter) but is great for road riding routes (maybe I'm...

    Right on as far as coffe is concerned. In fact, after a few days of drinking a few mugs in the morning, I feel more energized -- or maybe I'm just back in an old comfortable habit that makes me feel good, not necessarily energized. As far as the breakfast/lunch debacle of this past Sunday, I...

    Coffee Reversion, and what I've been doing wrong I have reverted to being a coffee drinker. Demon Brew keeps drawing me back in. It started with a need to perk up one morning when I had to awake at 4:30 am to get ready for work and was not fully functional until I had a good jolt. After that, I...

    You're right, Norm. I weighed in ~163 on Saturday morning, and on Sunday morning scale said I was ~169, hence the six pounds. I did eat too much on Saturday at the birthday party - spanish rice with salty chorizo sausage, birthday cake, and a pint of Yeungling (and only one, it was pancake flat...

    Training has consisted mostly of running or using the elliptical trainer lately. I've had to work every weeknight for the past two weeks, leaving me no time to ride. Weekends have been dedicated to family and house-moving obligations. I'm itching to get on the bike. I'm supposed to tonight, soon...

    Husband had an unexpected half-day yesterday so I got to put in 25 miles before work yesterday. Very high quality ride. I aimed for high cadence and to push myself a little harder on the rolling hills. I averaged just under one mph faster than I had on my previous rides. Felt fantastic. My...

    Weigh Every Day? Another lovely Sunday morning ride. Short but definitely worthwhile: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=2996865. About 25 miles all told, a few little hills, mostly flat and easy but I felt great the whole way. I don't get to ride often during the week, so I run instead. I think...

    Two Weeks Coffee-Free Two weeks free of coffee. My food has never tasted better and I since I don't find myself lingering over the morning coffee ritual I feel more productive during the day. Haven't had much time to ride lately, weather, job and home responsibilities are stacked against me...

    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=2959190 Rode on Saturday. Not particularly long, and definitely very slow. It was not a quality ride. My legs felts like lead, butt bone was sore and it took me a while to find my rhythm. I took advantage of most downhill sections and coasted, kept my gearing...

    North tends to mean hills out here, but I'm hoping to get out that way when I feel a bit stronger. Ron has explored the northern territory near our home and he says the roads are in great condition and make for a good ride. Perhaps I'll brave it on Saturday since I want to do a longer ride. I...

    Rode last night: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=2950947. I felt OK. Forgot the HRM so I don't know what zone I was in but it felt like a good effort. I tried to push myself a bit more than usual now that I feel like I have my legs back to some degree. It was all I could do to keep the...

    Coffee-Free Me Well, I broke the coffee habit. It's been eight days since I've had a cup of coffee. I feel ok, no shakes at all and no cravings either. It started when we ran out of coffee one day and couldn't make a pot for the following morning. We are sort of coffee snobs and will only...

    Grrrlll Ride at Jungle Habitat

    I'm in Stewartsville, which is near Phillipsburg/Easton. JH is far easier for me to get to than Allaire, but Allaire is a great beginner park. When I lived in Princeton I would ride there and Clayton fairly regularly. My husband can watch the baby on weekends, but we're moving to Branchburg...
