Little Warmer Today, Going for 30 Miles on the Bike

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Well, today looks to be a little warmer, in the 50s, so I think I'll try to knock off half the miles I have left to reach my goal for the year. Yesterday I rode myself to within exactly 60 miles of 2708 (the amount of miles for this year that will bring me to an even 5,000 for the last two years) and so today I think I'll try for 30 miles. We'll see how it goes but with such nice weather, and with the temps set to dip tomorrow, I sure hope I can make the time!

Hope you have a great day!

Chilly Commute on the Bicycle Today--Again!

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

Wow, 30 degrees on a bicycle feels awfully chilly this time of year. Coming out of the winter it doesn't feel so bad but going into the winter I kept thinking to myself, "What are you thinking, bro!" I may commute one or two more days but this weather is just a bit too nippy for me. One way or the other, I only have about 60 miles left to reach my big goal for the year and I will get that done--just not so early in the morning!

    Your absolutely right...it is getting nippy, walking is beginning a bit uncomfortable let alone bicycling. emoticon
Good luck in reaching your goal before the much colder weather and snow falls emoticon emoticon

Season's Over but Still Going for Goal

Monday, November 01, 2010

My cycling season usually runs from January to October. I start off in Jan and Feb doing indoor, bike-trainer exercises and then hit the road in March as soon as the temps go above 35 and the snow and ice melts away. This year one of my goals for the season was to put in 2500 miles on the bike which I did. But then I got the itch to make up the 108 miles I came short of that goal last year so that I'd have an even 5000 for the last two years. I was hoping to get that done last week but weather and circumstances prevented me from doing it. It's now November and the season's over but I'm going to go for it and reach that goal. I only have about 80 miles left which I should be able to do very easily this week. I can't wait to hit 2708 on the odometer!

Hope you have a great day, it's a day off for me and I'm already enjoying it.

  


Teaching a Class Today

Saturday, October 30, 2010

I have the privilege of teaching a class today on what's called the intertestamental period, that is, the period between the close of the Old Testament and the opening of the New Testament. The period lasts for about 350 years and is one of the most important in all of history. Beginning with the conquests of Alexander and extending through the spread of the Roman Empire and the birth of Jesus Christ, this period shaped the world to this day and I do indeed count it a privilege to share what I know about it and, more importantly, to inspire others to look into it for themselves.

Hope you have a great day!

On the Road Again

Thursday, October 28, 2010

Well it's cold--about 35 degrees this morning--and the wind is still blowing--about a 20 mph WNW wind--but it's not raining and so I'm on the road again. I'll probably only get 15-20 miles in today but I'm so thankful for that and hoping that I can get 99 miles in by the end of the week.

We'll see how it goes, hope you have a great day.
