Recovering from a bad cycling accident (that could have taken my life).

Monday, September 22, 2014      5 comments

I haven't been very active on SparkPeople and the blogs, because on July 18th of this year I was involved in something that all active cyclists dread - a high speed bike crash. How bad was it? Well, as soon as I hit pavement, I blacked ou... Read more

'60 for 60' - in the bag!

Sunday, June 01, 2014      2 comments

On Saturday, May 31, I turned 60 years old. In America, this is not a big deal, but here in Korea, it's a VERY big deal. So as I approached my 60th birthday, I wondered what to do to make it special. Then I hit on a great idea - why not ... Read more

Getting my cycling groove back on!

Wednesday, March 05, 2014      6 comments

Today is March 7th. I already have 16 rides logged in for the year. At an average of about 30 KM per ride, I have already logged in about 480 KM (about 250 miles) this year. The weather here has been incredibly co-operative here for F... Read more

Can't believe I got in a 25 KM ride on Jan 2, 2014!

Happy New Year everyone. Time to get re-sparked! I have been really slacking on both exercise and nutrition lately, and of course, that caused a serious relapse in conditioning and weight. But it's a new year and time to get re-energized ... Read more

Columbus Day.

Monday, October 14, 2013      6 comments

While I had to work today (not enough vacation time built up), I did manage to sneak one last warm weather ride in on the holiday. Tomorrow, the spandex is gone until next spring - no more bike shorts. Our local forecast predicts 49 degree... Read more

One more day closer to September!

Tuesday, August 06, 2013      4 comments

The good news - the rains are over. Now comes the intense heat - not as hot as California, but up in the upper 90's, with 80+ percent humidity. Hot by almost any standard. So the biking shifts to 5 - 6:30 AM - too hot to do it anytime... Read more

Back to a lifestyle of fitness - and Sparking!

Sunday, August 04, 2013      7 comments

Last month, I earned 1000 Spark Points, and I logged over 1500 fitness minutes. It has been a long, long time since I've posted a 'double 1000' month - probably at least two years. Anytime I can do both, I feel that I've made remarkable pr... Read more

The Joy of Cycling - The Pure Joy.

Saturday, July 27, 2013      11 comments

Now I know why some dogs just can't wait to go for a car ride and stick their head out the window. At least I kind of felt that way today. Today, I experienced what I can best describe as 'the pure joy of cycling'. For a change, I ... Read more

OK, I give up - but I'm not going all this rain ruin my exercise routine.

Wednesday, July 17, 2013      7 comments

Let's just say I gave in, but did't give up. With the rain here in Korea entering it's sixth straight day, I was having a real bad case of a 'bicycle jones' (you have to be pretty old to remember where that came from :-). I needed to ride... Read more

All this rain forces me to change my exercise routine - and that's a good thing.

Last week there was so much rain here in Seoul that I could only get out on my bike for two days. This week promises to be more of the same (sigh). But looking for the silver lining in the clouds, all this rain has forced me into alter... Read more

Been a Long time since the last blog.

Tuesday, July 09, 2013      8 comments

Gosh, how time flies - I realize that I haven't added a single blog in over two months. There are a lot of reasons (and excuses) for the lack of blogs - too many things to do, to much time spent on the bike, too lazy, etc. But anyway... Read more

Getting back to fitness.

Thursday, May 02, 2013      4 comments

I logged in over 1000 fitness minutes for the month of April. It has been almost 9 months since I have been able to work out this much. I've had many distractors on my fitness and weight loss journey. No more! Time to get back in shape! ... Read more

It's been a great cycling week!

Saturday, April 27, 2013      2 comments

170 KM (about 103 miles) of cycling. 546 Fitness Minutes on the bike (over 9 hours). 6 out of 7 days where the weather was good enough to get out and ride. All in all, a wonderful cycling week! Every week of the year should be so... Read more

Riding 4 days in a row!

Wednesday, April 24, 2013      2 comments

The weather has finally forced me off the bike for a day. Actually, it's kind of a relief - I have been riding really hard lately - which is a GREAT thing! With the short Wednesday evening ride yesterday, I have logged over 110 KM (about... Read more

Two 20 mile rides - back to back

Monday, April 22, 2013      3 comments

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday, with a real fierce headwind, I did 20 miles in 1 hour 50 minutes. Today, I took twenty minutes off my time - 20 miles in 90 minutes. It was really great to have time to be able to get in t... Read more
