The best time of the week! Time to relax and recharge! Believe me, with the work I'm involved in now, and the new intense (far too intense) boss, I am glad I get two full days to recharge. Looking forward to the day (soon) when this ... Read more

Has it been almost two years? It doesn't seem like it - but sure enough, the last time I posted a Spark Blog was 693 days ago. I lot has transpired in my life since then. I totally (and I mean totally) walked away from worrying about fitn... Read more
Two 30+ minute workouts this week
Tuesday, January 17, 2017      3 comments

So far, it's been a great exercise week - three days of cardio workout, and two days of spinning for more than 30 minutes. My legs are a little sore from today's workout, but I will certainly take two 30 minute workout sessions - and it's only ... Read more

I am back up to 31 minutes on the bike trainer. It was a good way to start the week out right. I'm also back to tracking my food again - the Sparkpeople trackers make it so easy to do.... Read more

Here is a 2 1/2 year update since my pretty horrible bike accident in July 2014.. I am almost completely recovered - I have some lingering arm discomfort that doesn't want to go away, and have an arm that has become a very reliable weather... Read more
Time to Start Over

Having just returned from the United States, I got a scare that made me realize just how much I have let my Spark lifestyle 'slip'. I was so sick while I was in Colorado, I ended up in the Emergency Room (because I was not able to 'keep any... Read more
Recovering from a bad cycling accident (that could have taken my life).

I haven't been very active on SparkPeople and the blogs, because on July 18th of this year I was involved in something that all active cyclists dread - a high speed bike crash. How bad was it? Well, as soon as I hit pavement, I blacked ou... Read more
'60 for 60' - in the bag!
Sunday, June 01, 2014      2 comments

On Saturday, May 31, I turned 60 years old. In America, this is not a big deal, but here in Korea, it's a VERY big deal. So as I approached my 60th birthday, I wondered what to do to make it special. Then I hit on a great idea - why not ... Read more

Happy New Year everyone. Time to get re-sparked! I have been really slacking on both exercise and nutrition lately, and of course, that caused a serious relapse in conditioning and weight. But it's a new year and time to get re-energized ... Read more
Columbus Day.

While I had to work today (not enough vacation time built up), I did manage to sneak one last warm weather ride in on the holiday. Tomorrow, the spandex is gone until next spring - no more bike shorts. Our local forecast predicts 49 degree... Read more
One more day closer to September!
Tuesday, August 06, 2013      4 comments

The good news - the rains are over. Now comes the intense heat - not as hot as California, but up in the upper 90's, with 80+ percent humidity. Hot by almost any standard. So the biking shifts to 5 - 6:30 AM - too hot to do it anytime... Read more

Sunday, August 04, 2013      7 comments

Last month, I earned 1000 Spark Points, and I logged over 1500 fitness minutes. It has been a long, long time since I've posted a 'double 1000' month - probably at least two years. Anytime I can do both, I feel that I've made remarkable pr... Read more

Now I know why some dogs just can't wait to go for a car ride and stick their head out the window. At least I kind of felt that way today. Today, I experienced what I can best describe as 'the pure joy of cycling'. For a change, I ... Read more
