This morning my mp3 player served up Jimi Hendrix' Voodoo Chile - Slight Return. While this song may not be an obvious choice for a workout tune, I realized this morning why I put it there. No fast beat, no catchy rhythms, just RAW POWER, ... Read more

Pausing To Measure Progress

Thursday, February 18, 2010      10 comments

A couple days ago I managed to bang my knee and as it was too sore I was off the treadmill. Today I couldn't tolerate yet one MORE day off my 'mill so I decided to get on, but at 4 mph rather than my usual 5+ mph. Used the same incline of 10. ... Read more

Back again with more about my NYC / Dr. Oz experience! First of all, my "semi" big news: For a few short hours, before ever leaving for NYC I blew through 200 and weighed in at 198 the morning of SuperBowl Sunday! But then my home-made chil... Read more

Super Time Had By All!

Just a quickie here...we had a great time today on the Dr. Oz show and despite being there from 9 until noon time there were few, if any slack moments. Dr. Oz has a comedian / ringleader kinda guy who was doing a lot of wise-cracking and giving ... Read more

Weather Stress...!

Tuesday, February 09, 2010      10 comments

Does hyperventilating count as cardio...?!? Looks like we've found a place to stay that's close enough by. We'll probably head in as soon as I get off from work today to beat the worst of the snow and will probably stay Weds. night as well... Read more

Looks like Mother Nature is going to try and throw some monkey wrenches into my trip into NYC early Weds. a.m. in the form of some heavy snows. I *may* need to have a Plan B in which I leave early Tues. and stay overnight as close to Rocke... Read more
