Strawberry Mike’s Mix Recovery Drink Smoothie. I will quickly lose interest in a recipe, either for smoothies or a dinner entree, if the process is too complicated, time consuming or I find that I would have to make a special trip to the grocery store to get half the ingredients. As such, my favorite recipes are […]

What does the Original Mike’s Mix Recovery Drink Flavor Taste like?

February 6th, 2012 (6 Comments)

The Original Mike’s Mix has no flavoring added. It is a testimony to the quality of the functional ingredients that they inherently taste good.

January 27th, 2012 (1 Comment)

  We are all getting older, how should we behave? I recently had a birthday.  For those of you who forgot shame on you!  As I rapidly approach 40, I, like many my age, are a bit melancholy about losing our youth.  I’m certainly still a kid at heart and feel like I’m in the best shape of […]

One week away!  Less than 7 days from now, at this moment, I’ll be swimming around Lake Mendota.  Hopefully on my second loop or I’m in trouble.  I love the word taper!  I never really needed it until now.  Last week, on my last long ride, I started out and within a few miles, I […]

Two weeks to go!

August 28th, 2011 (No Comments)

I’ve counted up the time left, 8 hours of training left before the big day!  Gotta love the taper weeks.  On my last long bike ride yesterday, I hit the proverbial mental wall, on the same location as last time, the long, boring Hwy G.  The difference?  I’d learned from past mistakes.  I knew that […]
