Not Fun
Thursday, July 01, 2010      7 comments

So, here I was at 5:30AM, ready to start yesterday's bike ride. Suddenly, my chain disengaged and I was pedalling in the air. I fell on my knee with my shoe still in the pedal. My knee and ankle took a beating. Nothing broken, just unable to ri... Read more
Body or Mind

The goal today was to bike 100 miles. The mind kept telling the body to keep going, but when the temperature got beyond 100, the body just could not do what the mind was ordering and cautioned all to cool it or there would be a breakdown. So, af... Read more

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

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

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

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
