Finished off week #4 of Body for Life with an invigorating 70-mile bike ride. It was hot and windy, but doable. The lifting is progressing nicely. I'm still adjusting the amount weight in each of the exercises. As I progress, I increase the weig... Read more

So far, the month has not been kind. The weight has not moved and the nutrition needs a bit of help. So, for May we're gonna shake up the "bod" a bit by changing the workout routine. We're gonna bike 4X weekly and do strength training 3X weekly,... Read more

It was another super week. Biked over 300 miles and took part in my first Organized Ride of the Year, a 62-miler in Austin, Texas. In spite of winds and climbs, I averaged 17.8 MPH. Not too shabby for a beat up 67-yr old. Additionally, I dropped... Read more

It's been a while since my last blog and the reason is that I just haven't had much to write about. However, last week I challenged a Spark Buddy to some weight reduction. It seems that he likes challenges and I'm gonna have to hurt his feelings... Read more

I began my preparation for the Senior Games. That means that the mileage goes down and the intensity goes up. Worked it hard with some intervals, hills, threshold ride and time trial tests. On the nutritional side, not too good. Ate way too much... Read more
