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

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

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 Two: Workout Four

Friday, March 01, 2013      2 comments

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

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

Wednesday, February 27, 2013      3 comments

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

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

Day One, Workout One

Tuesday, February 19, 2013      4 comments

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
