5 Mile Walk/Jog Today, Tomorrow...Who Knows, Minnesota Weather Strikes Again!
Just got back from a nice 5 mile walk/jog. Making good progress, and most importantly enjoying the time being outside, getting in shape, and singing to the Lord--yep, I don't care what people think, I sing out loud as I'm jogging!
I had pl... Read more

Had a nice 10 mile recovery ride this evening, no snow in Minnesota today! Day off tomorrow, and then a 5 mile run on Tuesday followed by a few of days of bike riding and then a 7 mile run on Friday or Saturday. Had a good week, looking forward ... Read more
Did a 10k today in my neighborhood. It was about 42 degrees out which I actually enjoy. Listened to some good worship music, tried out Map My Run's mobile app for the third day in a row and I love it! Mostly, I made a little more progress toward... Read more
Update on Marathon Training--Oh, and I Rode my Bike in the Snow Today!
Yes, it is Minnesota after all! Took a 10.5 mile ride today, and for about half the ride it was actually snowing. At one point I was cruising along at about 28 mph and the snow was driving hard into my face (it was that little pea like snow)--I ... Read more
Emergency Dental Surgery and Marathon Training
Wow, what a day. It started with a toothache at about 4:00 a.m. Thursday morning.
Well, it started with a bad tooth about 1.5 years ago, but unfortunately my wife and I were going through some serious financial difficulties and we simply c... Read more
Marathon Training Week 3: Workout 1
Had a good one today, 3.5 mile walk and a full-body workout. Day by day my body is getting stronger, my mood is getting better, and my energy is increasing. So thankful to be back in the saddle, and looking forward to a 5 mile jog-walk tomorrow... Read more
Marathon Training Two: Workout Four
Did a very mellow 3 mile walk today, took me a little over an hour. I had planned to take today as a day of rest but decided, for a couple of reasons to do this instead, and I'm glad I did. Tomorrow or Sunday I'm set to walk/jog for 5 miles, hop... Read more
Marathon Week Two--Workout Three
Great workout today. Started with a fairly mellow 1.5 walk, then completed a full-body workout (about 30 different exercises), and finished up with 30 min on the elliptical. Feels so good to be back in the groove!
Tomorrow I'm taking a day... Read more
Marathon Week Two--Workout Two
Last week I was scheduled to complete six workouts of various lengths and intensities, and bottom line, it was just too much too soon. So I completed five of them but then made the good decision to rest on that sixth day when my body was begging... Read more
Marathon Week One--Workout Five
Just got home from workout five--a quick 10 minutes on the elliptical, full-body workout, and then two miles walking. I was tired after a very long day of work, but I did it. I'm more tired now, but I'm glad I did! One more to go for week one, a... Read more
Marathon Week One--Workout Four
Easy one yesterday, simple 3.1 mile power walk. Since I'm just getting back into the swing, I decided not to jog at all to this point, and won't do so later today either, but rather just to walk at 3.5-4.0 mph and then save jogging for tomorrow ... Read more
Marathon Week One--Workout Three
Good workout today. Quick 10 minutes on the elliptical, full-body workout which includes around 30 sets on various machines plus free-weights (takes about 30 minutes to complete), then a brisk 2 mile walk.
The best part? I felt that "kille... Read more

Day One, Workout One
Had a good workout this evening, though it's a little deflating to be so out of shape. Last year I could have done the workout I just did three times and not feel as "worked out" as I do right now. But oh well, that was then, this is now. One do... Read more
