Iron Porcupine 1200k
About a month ago the RUSA Calendar for 2020 came out. And included in it was the list of 1200k events that are going to be offered in 2020. I was happy to see that there were going to be 8 such events offered. I looked through the offerings and stumbled across the Web site for the Iron Porcupine 1200k. I didn’t like what I learned when reading about that event. 1200k brevets that RUSA offer are supposed to be designed so riders can complete them unassisted within 90 hours at pretty much any pace the rider chooses. RUSA guidelines for route design indicate rest stops have a specific open and close time route designers MUST comply with, and those rest stops should not be spaced more than 100k apart. Click on the map below of the Iron Porcupine route to be able to see why this route doesn’t really comply with RUSA’s route requirements. Rest stops (along with business hours) are identified in the cue entries for each map.
Learn About Money
Riding a bike is great! Eating in a healthy way is great! Avoiding heart disease, Type II diabetes, fatty liver, and insulin resistance is great! And getting a formal education is OK. But don’t forget to learn about money!
Notice this guy talks about schooling as not so important. But he gets a lot of guidance from accountants and lawyers. And a formal education is needed to become a CPA and/or a lawyer. This should make you want to go to school to become a CPA or lawyer if you are going to go the formal education route for a bit.
“Healthy Keto” is THE DIET
Gotta get rid of insulin resistance and fatty liver. Then you can lose the weight using your now fixed metabolism that had been broken.
How to Swim Perfect Freestyle
Pretty good video on the subject.
Workout Variety – Swimming
Great video! It focuses on how to vary your swim workouts that last between 40 to 60 minutes each. But the concepts are equally applicable to running workouts on a treadmill, and cycling workouts on an indoor trainer. Both of which would last 40 to 60 minutes. Then do a long run one day on the weekend. And do a long bike ride on the other day on the weekend.

Winter Training Advice
Good advice for the competitive cyclist. But for hackers like me, I’m taking a couple of months off and will be back at it (“training”) come January 1.
