Coming from close to 3 decades of competing in strength sports it's very interesting to read what endurance athletes are doing. The PED's, the training, nutrition, etc. I did a couple of 700mi bike tours when I was in high school and a season of rowing in college but for the most part my interest has been in strength. My hat is off to you guys, you are nuts.

It's so vastly different than what is required for strength. Guys checking their blood work often. I can't even imagine what it costs to get that done every year. Each year I have 2 full physicals and have blood drawn 2 other times besides that. Again, very interesting. Maybe I will learn a few things here.

I compete in powerlifting and strongman. Event training day is usually 3 hours of hell. Your heart wants to explode while you vomit on the side of the driveway. I do have a Giant Sedona MTB that I ride. It has rigid forks and a chrome moly frame. I weigh around 310 and I have to make sure the thing won't crack into pieces, LOL.

I would like to get a zipocrit as my crit tends to run a bit high. So does my rbc and hb.
