8 Days to Go. Yikes!

August 28, 2012

Okay, I just realized that I only have 8 more days. So I wrote out a schedule of rides and runs to get my mileage completed. It’s going to be a busy next 8 days for the most part. I might be able to make some of the early rides and runs a bit bigger […]

Day 36 of my 46th Birthday Challenge

August 27, 2012

I’ve had a good week since my last update. I’ve been pretty consistent on the bike, got 3 runs in, done all my pull-ups, done another 46 mile bike ride and added another vegeterian day. I’ve also seen one venomous snake and another non-venomous snake as well as one snake that was food for a […]

46th Birthday Challenge. Day 29

August 19, 2012

So today is Day 29 of my challenge and a clear pattern has developed. I’m totally committed to the riding and the running and the pull-ups but am a bit behind on both the bike and the running. I’ve done almost all the pull-ups but I had one day I didn’t do any and another […]

Birthday Challenge, Day 16

August 6, 2012

Okay, I guess I’m 1/3rd through my challenge, although I probably have more than 2/3rds left to do. So it goes I guess. For the record I’ve ridden 108 miles and should be at 160 miles. I’ve run 10 miles and should be at 16. I’ve done a 46 mile ride on my road bike […]

46th Birthday Challenge

July 21, 2012

In 46 Days I’ll be 46. So this year my challenge is going to be 46 days of challenges. Some will or course be bigger than others. I’m still working on some of the details, so consider this a work in progress, but the gist should be pretty close. I will ride my bike 460 […]

Why Exercise?

March 21, 2012

I exercise to do sports, to be outside and use my body as best as I can. Given the opportunity I’d much rather just do the things I want to do outside as my main source of training. But that’s not the path I’ve gone down. I’ve got a job and a family and I […]

March Update- 6 months down, 6 to go.

March 20, 2012

Back in September I did a pretty good Birthday Challenge and then challenged myself to lose 45 pounds during the course of the year. Since then I’ve been trying pretty hard, working out a lot and trying to eat better. I’m definitely way more fit than I was then, but I still have a long […]

Winter, New Years and a New Baby

January 24, 2012

It’s been a real mild winter and I’ve been enjoying the warmer than normal days. With the addition of Haven to the family I haven’t gotten out as much because she has taken some of our sleep and some of our extra time. I did get a good collection of rides in right around New […]

Photo Fitness Update

December 30, 2011

I have been training pretty consistently since September of this year. It’s now almost 4 months later and I’ve lost about 12 pounds and some inches here and there off my body. The other day I was bouldering with some friends and took some photos to try to compare what I looked like then with […]

Fall Fitness Update

December 11, 2011

My last post was about my Birthday Challenge. That was a couple of good days of exercise and a lot of fun. Since then I’ve had a number of good days on the bike and done a couple of runs. But almost all of my exercise has been a couple of Beachbody programs. I’m using these […]
