Pizza Update 5.1.2014

(mushroom, green garlic & fontina and 5 cheese pizzas)

The last few weeks we’ve transitioned from the Peter Reinhardt dough recipe we’ve used for years to the recently publicized Roberta’s technique. It’s super easy to work up and the product is ridiculously silky. Give it a whirl and stay #pizzastrong,* peeps.

Below, and a hot oven, is all you need:

  • 153 grams 00 flour (1 cup plus 1 tablespoon)
  • 153 grams all-purpose flour (1 cup plus 1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons)
  • 8 grams fine sea salt (1 teaspoon)
  • 2 grams active dry yeast (3/4 teaspoon)
  • 4 grams extra-virgin olive oil (1 teaspoon)

*That reference is for ya’ll (you know who you are)

Base 3 Week 1: Rest Day Notes

imageimage

(Sun long ride and gratuitous daughter pic)

In no particular order some notes from week 1 of base 3 (17 weeks from A race):

  • Family, work and IM training leave little time for Tumblr (miss my peeps)
  • It’s the point in the season where I’m fit enough to look forward to long rides
  • Huge fan of skratch labs drank* (official name “hydration mix”?) and Feed Zone portables 
  • The new The Hold Steady album, Teeth Dreams, is awesome. Is anyone rolling guitar like this these days?
  • Most hilarious parenting “compliment” received (verbatim) so far: “You’re so amazing with your daughter given your personality.” Umm…, gracias? 

Train hard, amigos.

*that one is for you, Wifey

Clockwise:

  1. Kimchi, tomato, pine nut, provolone, buffalo moz w/ Field 43 egg pizza
  2. Beet green pesto, tomato, jalapeno & chevre pizza
  3. Valentines Day gift from Wifey
  4. Arms up if you had a rad Valentine’s Day! Those are Flamingos BTW

Don’t judge on the hipstery pizza toppings—they came together like the 2001 Patriots. Attempts to make the ‘zas heart shaped were unsuccessful.

Have an awesome weekend and train hard, Amigos.

In the final week of my first base period this tri season and looking forward to an upcoming “rest” week. Tomorrow I’m going to make Wifey a heart shaped pizza. Firstly, because that’s how we roll on Valentine’s Day. And secondly, because she’s been an absolute fucking rock star with our 3 week old. 
Workouts this week:
Mon:  Rest
Tue:  1hr swim & 1hr bike
Wed: 40min run (pick ups) & Strength (dead lift y burpee pull up fiesta)
Thur: 1.5hr bike
Fri: 1hr swim, 1hr run & maintenance strength
Sat: 1.5hr swim & 2.5 hr Bike
Sun: 1.25hr run & “turn it up to 11”

Thanks for asking! Wifey/Mom/BFF is doing awesome. She handles the big stuff effortlessly. One of the many reasons I love her.
