Weekly Wednesday Update #18

Goal Update
Its been a productive but busy month. Lots of rain this past week kept me inside as I didn't want to catch a cold with all the travel I'll be doing in the next few weeks. Now that I have joined the runyourbq team, I should be increasing my mileage a bit… because 100 a month isn't enough.

April Totals
Miles Swam: 1.25 [2.89]
Miles Run: 103.66 [385.81]
Tacos Ate: 81 [349]
Miles Biked: 200.35 [865.75]

Things I worked on

Unfortunately, I underestimated the time it would take to complete some projects, but hey I got some work done. Check it out.
Well the table isn't flat...
Skins to start

Add 0.5" MDF to top 
Add weight to glue flat

Time to make it flat...


Fun Picture

The right most strip was from 0.75" MDF; gives me a straight edge to clamp against

And some fidget spinner fun

Favorite Podcasts of the Week

Another great podcast on the importance of diet, more data points to help me fuel my goals.
I am really becoming a fan of the strength running podcast. The information I'm learning on here I have never heard of before even though I've been running competitively for 20 years and I'm only 27. Very interesting podcast on injury prevention, athleticism and running healthier and faster.

Random of the Week

This past week I have spent a lot of time looking back at what I have accomplished, my future goals and what I am doing to accomplish those goals. The reason this post is late is because I stopped thinking about my next steps, I overcame my fear and I started making major steps towards those goals.

In the past week, I got approval from the board of directors of my company to procure and install the equipment for the major project I was working on for the past two years.

More to come... What have you done lately to try and accomplish your goals?

Time to write post: 4 days.... :(


  1. Hows the Stac Zero worked out for you any downsides quirks?

    1. Love the Stac Zero. There are two minor quirks I have found. 1. Sometimes you have to adjust the magnets a little bit to get the correct resistance; this takes only a few seconds and there is a little gauge to help. 2. It seems like sometimes the power meter is overestimating my output; either I have improved more than I thought, but some rides I can put out 250W at 26mph... Haven't done that outside yet, so I take the power meter readings with a grain of salt.
