This morning I had an earlier time with the coach. He relies on my being able to change what time I come in based on cancellations... so normally I'm his last client of the morning, but this particular morning, that last appointment was at 9:15... Read more
I swear the cats shrink in the Summer temperatures

Retirement does this to me. Particularly as I get a semi-regular schedule with the coach and the workouts... I get to thinking that my strength training *should* be Tuesday and Thursday and when it's not, as it wasn't this week... the in betwee... Read more

Going to write this before I go off to read other blogs, to make sure I get 'er done! STRONGDAWG asked if I was back on the training plan. Well, as most of my answers start out, "that depends". THE training plan, or A training plan? I ha... Read more

Ahhhh! Now is when retirement is starting to shine! When I get up, step out on the deck, hear the cacophony of birdsong, breathe in the smell of overnight rain... observe the weeds that have doubled in size overnight with that rain, etc... and... Read more
