For the last two days (maybe even longer) I've been in "F* it" mode. I've not been able to talk myself out of bed when the alarm goes off. I've not been motivated enough to get to the gym in the morning. Yesterday evening, even though it was bea... Read more

I biked 18.88 miles on Saturday! W00t! The first half I felt fine. The 2nd half, that is, on the way back, I must've been looking pretty rough as I had not one but 2 people ask me if I was all right. I was fine. Tired, maybe not hydrat... Read more

This evening I got to take my granddaughter and her new bike up to the bike path that I've been riding. We had a pretty good time. Unfortunately I forgot to bring any bug spray. We both got chewed up! But now I have a bike riding buddy! ... Read more

T.M.I. warning - early to bed, early to rise... does what again?

Thursday, August 20, 2015      1 comments

Woke up this morning at 4:30 AM. My body seems to want to wake at that time regardless of when I go to bed. I guess I should go to bed earlier, to get enough sleep. Don't know why, couldn't go back to sleep, of course. So I got up and starting c... Read more

Yesterday morning I did my walk/shuffle for 2 miles. I can hold the shuffle for a 30 count now, and was able to do so in intervals for the first mile. The 2nd mile is all back up hill, and that rotten shin splint came back in my right shin, whic... Read more

Yesterday I went for my first open water swim. I met a good friend of mine at a local lake. My friend grew up swimming in lakes; she even used to be a life guard and a member of a synchronized swimming team! But given the amount of trepida... Read more
