Day 20 – Back in the Saddle

Day 20 April 2 Heck Yeah!  15 miles round trip from home to NP & back home.  Felt good to get back in the saddle again.  I didn’t break any land speed records today (the yellow jersey was purchased, not earned!), but was very pleased with my performance.  We passed out Chromebooks to families from our

Day 19 – Prepping for a New Adventure

Day 19 April 1 I had planned to ride my bike to work today, but forgot to pull it out yesterday.   Had a horrid night’s sleep last night.  Was pretty grumpy most of the day, and decided not to work out today.  However, I prepared my bike for my ride to work tomorrow.  It’s been several years

Day 18 – Why practice?

Day 18 March 31  As usual, I jogged the flats and uphills, walk the downhills 2.64  miles.  11.45 pace.  Surprised my pace was that fast.  I felt like I was really struggling today.  The struggle was real!  But I persevered through it all, thus the smile on my face in the picture to the left.

Day 16 – Setbacks Bring Possibilities

Day 16 March 29 Went on a 4 mile brisk walk with the wifey this afternoon.  I knew my legs wouldn’t have much pep in them for a good run due to the 2 days of previous “hill work” I had done.  Just like yesterday, time to diversify and do something a little different.  It was

Day 15 – Diversify Your Portfolio (of Experiences)

Day 15 March 28 Hike 1.4 miles.  Hundreds of times I’ve driven by that trail on Hillcrest between Westlake and Skyline that goes straight up the side of a hill in the Hillcrest Open Space Reserve.  I woke up before sunrise and thought that would be a great morning hike for some crazy reason, and tackled that beast!  I
