Thank you all for the links and suggestions that you posted in the comments section of my last entry. Shortly after I posted it I found the following cycling instructional video posted over at With Leather. I'm going to do my best to copy the techniques in the video.
Pretty awesome huh? Does it make me a bad person for laughing to the point of tears at some of those wrecks? I sure hope not. Speaking of wrecks, I found the following picture over at Speedwork, he finds the best pictures – Speedwork is also where I found the picture of the wooden tandem bike.
I think that most of you probably read Lawsons do Dallas already, but in the event that you do not, Amy had a great story involving her husband and a treadmill this past week. I keep telling myself that I'm not going to just keep linking to her blog in the weekend splits, but every week she has at least one post that has me rolling in fits of laughter and I just have to share it. Plus it takes a lot of effort each week to find links for the weekend splits, and it's pretty easy to just keep going back to the same well.
I've recently been visiting a new blog called Crash Fistfight written by Crash who is a triathlete. For those of you who like to learn from other's mistakes, he has some good advice on what not to do before you run a half marathon: Don't get drunk. Crap. I guess I'll have to amend my plans for my upcoming half.
As I was perusing the Runners Lounge blog I came across a post written by Amy that included advice on running fashion tips. It's definitely worth a read, and be sure to follow the link on there to the Fat Triathlete's guide to the Irresponsible use of Spandex. Good stuff.
Finally, the cookie diet gets a review (highly recommended - the article is highly recommended, not the cookie diet.) from a guest blogger over at Cranky Fitness. I had never heard about the cookie diet until I mentioned it here and now I keep seeing it everywhere.
Moon – Moon is busy working towards a Mickey Medal.
Amy at Runners Lounge.
Marcy who is always an entertaining read.
That crazy girl who's running everyday. Someone told me she was smart and pretty too. While that may be true it's unfortunately offset by the fact that she's Canadian, eh.
I'm off to get my long run in. Have a great weekend!
