- Post run functional strength work...this season I'm taking a more holistic view of my #swimbikerun & ensuring that strength work doesn't get skipped. . . . #triathlon #ironman #salmingrunning #IFB #triathlete #2020goals #running
- Impromptu Bowie Isolation Marathon
- Still reflecting on @gravel_worlds from this past weekend. 150miles of primo gravel in Lincoln NE with 10,000ft of climbing. It was hard but I went for it and utimately paid the price in the last hour when I cracked, really cracked. Crawled to the finish just over 9hrs after starting.....but yes it was fun! . . . . . #gravelworlds #gravelride #IFB #parvillacycles #cycling #vandessel #lincoln
- First cross race of the season at #AACX today....always a tough race when you are the race director as well but had a solid race for 4th in the Elite Masters. . . . . . #IFB #cyclocross #parvillacycles #vandessel #tifosioptics #pactimo #industrynine

Prognosticator of all Prognosticators.......2009
It's that time of year again when Punxsutawney Phil attempts to predict the remaining winter period for the year. I first wrote about this last year when Phil saw his shadow and therefore predicted six more weeks of winter.
Phil was back again today in Gobblers Knob and in front of 13,000 witnesses, he emerged to once again see his shadow and predict six more weeks of winter. Not that it came as much of a surprise really. Since 1887, Phil has seen his shadow 97 times, hasn't seen it 15 times, and there are no records for nine years, according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club.
So despite the balmy temperatures of yesterday I wouldn't be putting away the winter cycling tights and thermal jackets just yet!
