Incredible Challenge
Saturday, January 27, 2018      2 comments

In Sep '17, I underwent surgery to re-attach my torn quadricep tendon. Unable to do but little exercise, my weight increased to 191.5, as of 1/118. I had enough of that so, I sat down and figured a challenge that very few could accomplish. I ph... Read more

So, do you want to cycle a bit faster? If so, what can you add to your bike that would make you go approximately 2 miles per hour faster? I did a test beginning last Saturday. I cycled a relatively flat, but windy course with my daily training w... Read more

Was on the tail end of my Sunday ride when suddenly gravel popped up and threw me hard on the ground. Eventually, had to pedal home with one leg. The other leg was useless. Will be out for a while.... Read more

It's the 8th of the month and I have logged more than half of what the Cycling Team has logged. While I realize that many of you are having weather challenges, many of you are able to cycle year-round, but choose not to or are just not posting i... Read more
The Month of August
Friday, September 02, 2016      2 comments

Overall, August was an awesome month for me. First off, my cycling was pretty active and culminated with the "Hotter than Hell 100" bike ride. I did the latter at a 17.2 MPH avg. Considering the heat, that's a pretty darned good time for an old ... Read more

Boy it's been a while since I wrote a blog. Life has been hectic, but exciting. Have maintained my cycling, in spite of the high South Texas temperatures. Have been able to orchestrate the training of two dogs in both obedience and agility. As a... Read more

Been awfully busy lately working out and fine tuning my dog's agility training in preparation for the past weekend's agility competition. I've hung tough with the exercise regimen and almost as well with the nutrition. The agility competition wa... Read more

All is going well. My dog training is paying off as my puppy is doing brilliantly while attending class. We were the new kids on the block when we joined back in November. Now we are almost leading the pack. My exercise routine continues and my ... Read more

All continues to be well on the home front. Did my 4+ hours of exercise, closely followed by a nap with my dogs. The nutrition was within the acceptable and I had a caloric deficit. So, all is good and I continue to stay focused on the target. H... Read more

All went as expected yesterday. Did the walking, lifting and cycling for 4+ hours of exercise. Of course, I did take in my afternoon nap. Boy, that does rejuvenate my body. I wake up feeling pretty darned good. On the nutrition side, I was "Spot... Read more

Saturdays and Sundays I give the lifting a break and concentrate on training/walking my dogs and doing a long bike ride. The plan for the latter was to do 40 miles. The doggie part went well, but the cycling was better than well. I felt really g... Read more

It was indeed an active day. Racked up over 5 hours of exercise (walking, cycling, lifting, dog training). In addition, was a real good boy on the nutritional side. The result: dropped one more pound to 167. Just going backwards in time, 25+ yea... Read more

Where there's a will, there is a way. In spite of the rain, we were able to do the outside activities. Just a matter of timing it just right and not minding a bit a wetness. So, we were back to our 3+ hours of exercise. Just love it when you can... Read more

The weather is just not cooperating. Lots of wind and rain is causing a halt to the cycling. Puppy training has been done indoors. The only daily exercise that hasn't suffered is the lifting. While we need the water, I just wish tat it would pou... Read more
