    Dr. Paul Completes 150 Mile Single-Day Solo Ride...Again!

    Dr. Paul Rides In a performance that any "IronMan" would be proud of, Dr. Paul repeated his single day, solo ride, which he first executed back in August of '94, a single-day solo-ride from Saratoga Springs, New York to Simsbury, Connecticut. The ride terrain is particularly challenging as it includes foothills of the Adirondacks and part of the Berkshire mountains, both beautiful and treacherous. Leaving out at 6:35am from his home in Saratoga Springs, Paul averaged just over 15 miles per hour to complete the ride in less than 10 hours! He says afterwards, "100% of my training followed my own "Protocol For ALL"! "I simply applied the same eating and training regimen that I recommend to my students and members, and the results speak for themselves". "What I am most excited about is that my Protocol makes it easy to walk the walk and talk the talk..and, I was able to pick right up with my Protocol following just two days of rest. I want the same level of Peak Performance for you, so don't wait another day...Join my Protocol and I will enable you to pursue your next life adventure in Optimal Health!
