Tough Ride

Sunday, June 06, 2010      3 comments

Saturday was the week's long bike ride. I wanted to do 102 miles, in spite of the hot and humid weather. The plan was to bike a route and finish off at the Air Force Base and my Cuchi-Cuchi would meet me at the pool. The weather was really hot ... Read more

Today I biked 95 miles in 6 + hours with 95-degree weather. But it pales in comparison to what many of our vets gave up. I dedicate my ride to those that have made our yesterday and todays possible. I will never forget!!... Read more

Better Days Ahead

Was not a very disciplined individual last week. My wife normally does the cooking and holds me in check. Unfortunately, she had a 7-day business trip and I was left to do my own thing. And doing it I did. It was not a pretty sight. Luckily, I m... Read more

As I woke up, I took my resting heart beat and fitness calculator from my Polar Heart Rate Monitor. My resting heart rate is at 53. That's a decrease of 4 beats since last reading. My fitness calculator has me at the "Elite' category at the 65 a... Read more

A Challenging Ride

Tuesday, May 04, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday's weekly long ride started off nicely. The weather was cooperating and the body was willing. After 2 hours on the bike, the weather turned very, very hot. In spite of it, I kept pedaling. By the time I reached the 76-mile mark, the bik... Read more

This real nutty Spark Buddy and I have established a weekly challenge. Every Monday we weigh-in and give each other Spark Goodies for weight lost. No weight loss, no goodies. So far, it appears to be working. As for myself, I find that I'm looki... Read more

Life is good. Am recovered from last week's Senior Games and am now getting ready for the Hottern' Hell 100 in August. My goal is to do the 100 miles in less than 5 hours. It'll take some weight loss and smart/dedicated training. I'm motivated a... Read more

Disappointment

Woke up this morning and I can barely walk. My knee is killing me and the lower back is aching. My hard day yesterday has almost paralyzed me. I think I'm gonna have to skip today's Senior Games. So disappointing. Just another reason to better p... Read more

Senior Games Day #1

Saturday, April 10, 2010      0 comments

Today we had the cycling 10K time trial and 20K road race. Now, mind you, it's my first time racing. The advice given to me by CT-Snowbird's Cuchi-Cuchi came in real handy. While I did not medal (4th place in each race), I gained great experienc... Read more

All is going well. Began my part-time experience working at a bike shop. Quickly realized how much I don't know about the intricacies of selling bike stuff. Will have to listen and ask many questions. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Will be heading for Pflugerville today in preparation for the year's first ride, the Rosedale 100K. I have a certain sense of loyalty for the ride because it was my very first organized ride five years ago. I'll be staying with my son and enjoyi... Read more

This past week was both sad and exhausting, but it finally ended yesterday with the funeral and burial of a super lady. My poor wife barely made it, but I'm so very proud of her. This week, we must get back on the fitness trail so as to make up ... Read more

The bad news was received. MIL passed away on Wednesday very early in the morning. Unfortunately, my wife was flying when the word filtered down. What a downer for her. Luckily our son was with her to try and calm her down a bit. I left Orlando ... Read more
