On to the Winter Months
Friday, November 08, 2019      3 comments

After my "mind shift" this summer, I got on the train to make things happen. I started getting my workouts in, and started getting back to tracking my eating. It's been a few months now, and my fitness has taken leaps and bounds (obviously still... Read more
Mind Shift
Wednesday, July 24, 2019      3 comments

A couple weeks ago I was watching the pro motorcycle races (MotoAmerica) at my favorite "(old) home" track they race at, Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca. I was looking at the times for what would be the class I would race in if I were to try the... Read more
Back to the Midwest
Friday, June 21, 2019      2 comments

Life never quite follows our plans, does it? Moving back to the midwest was certainly not in my plans. I grew up in Wisconsin, spent about a year in Texas with the military, back to WI, then out to California where I lived for 13 years. I l... Read more

Wednesday, May 23, 2018      2 comments

The 2018 Spring into Summer season is rolling in with a vengeance, leaving me little opportunity to breath or relax. First, there's work: my main job is turning into three people's jobs. This is coming along with a promotion and a raise, s... Read more
Oh That's Intense!
Friday, February 02, 2018      4 comments

Started the new workout plan and just wrapped up my first full week. Oh, it's intense. Totally kicking my butt, I'm pretty glad it's finally the weekend! ST days are a bit easier, since I start them with my 30 minutes of cardio then go lift... Read more
Updated Workout Plan
Wednesday, January 24, 2018      2 comments

Monday night I got my updated training plan from my trainer - i asked, he delivered. This is going to whup my behind! Time to get fit again, no more "working up to it" now. The plan basically breaks down to this, and most workouts are about... Read more
Staying the Course
Friday, January 12, 2018      0 comments

I made it through the holidays sticking with my workout plans. My leg has been holding up to the workouts, and while being on my feet on pavement most of a day is still an unpleasant experience, most days things are slowly improving. I've ... Read more
When Enough is Just Right
Monday, December 18, 2017      3 comments

It's happened in the past, it's happening again. I'm working out regularly, and my body is responding. I'm feeling stronger, and already can go longer and harder than just a month ago. My weights have increased, and overall it's feeling good. ... Read more
Break-versary: One Year Since Pilon Fracture
Monday, December 04, 2017      3 comments

Well, yesterday was the one year mark since that fateful day when I broke my leg. At that time I was unaware what I was really in for - I knew my winter would kind of suck, but was under the impression that I'd be back at things come spring, no ... Read more
Finding Balance
Tuesday, November 28, 2017      1 comments

As I've returned to the gym and "regular" workouts, it's been great to feel things coming back. Doing what I could this past year is making this process a bit easier than I expected - while I still have a lot of lost ground to make up for, on th... Read more
Oh the Gainz...Embrace the Suck!
Monday, November 20, 2017      4 comments

A couple years ago, after several years of yo-yo fitness routines, I realized something about my body. If I started working out, or suddenly had a dramatic increase to my intensity, I was going to gain weight. Not for a day or two, but for sever... Read more

I can't lie. 2017 has been a very tough year for me. Of course, it could be worse (what couldn't be worse), but it's still been tough. It was a year of being hurt, scared, stressed, broke, frustrated...the list goes on. It began on Dec 3, ... Read more
BLC 35 Fall Round
Monday, September 11, 2017      8 comments

I was really looking forward to this round kicking off. My leg is finally to a point where I could start working out again, but after the better part of 9 months of no "normal" workouts, I was really struggling to get back into the routine, and ... Read more
Oh the Ouch LOL
Tuesday, August 22, 2017      5 comments

Recovering from a lay-up is tough, and anyone who's been laid up can testify to just how long of a process that is. They say if you have been off of a limb/body part/etc and unable to use it, that you are looking at a MINIMUM of 3 weeks of recov... Read more
Finally Working Out Again
Monday, August 07, 2017      7 comments

I've finally made the transition from considering walking a workout to actually doing workouts like I've been missing for the past 8 months. I've gone to a couple cross-fit ST type classes, been out riding bicycle on hilly (paved) trails, and ha... Read more
