This year I was signed up to do a few 5k's, but we signed up first and then found out the dates, times, and locations. Well, of course, each one would fall on a date when the local guys would get together. So I scratched on every race and really didn't do much running at all. Jogging, yes. I did quite a few 5k trail runs on my own. My first no excuse run-a-virtual-5k came up. I ran it on the treadmill. Finishing time was: 30:26 I was hoping to break the 30 minute mark but kicked up the speed a minute or two too late to make up the time. Three days later my legs still are sore! I…

A beautiful but windy day outside led me to lace up my running shoes and try out another trail run just as I did the other day. Call it impulsive, but the shoes went on, the Fenix watch, and the new addition of a heart rate monitor on my chest. After a slight walk warm up, I quickly shot my heart rate up to 160 as I climbed the slippery leaf covered hills. The wind was blowing like crazy, but I was well protected in the woods. I decided to take a left in the woods on a trail I don't usually go on. Figured I would try and stay off the road for as long as I could. As…

Decided it was time to step up my fitness game and get outside and do some trail running.  I've been eating well, but my weight loss has stalled and been stagnant for a month or two now.  I'm going to try and keep better track of my caloric intake but also add in some light cardio to go with my current weight lifting routine. Regretfully it has been getting darker earlier and earlier.  Might need to start bringing a head lamp?  Or maybe run early in the morning?  Yeah, probably not that.  I'm not exactly a morning person.  Clocks change soon...  Will make some decisions then.

The Mrs and I have been doing our best to get into shape as of late, and doing well I must add! The question was: How do we keep this motivation going? Well, we of course love Bermuda, and have been there a few times. The last two, we coincided our travels with a road race. We have always heard about the Bermuda Triangle Challenge that happens in mid January. Three races in three days. Friday is the Mile Run held on Main Street Saturday is the 10K Sunday is your choice of the Half-Marathon or Full Marathon. The person with the three combined lowest times is how the overall scoring works. Here is the thing. I'm not a runner.…

So I starting running again.  I've always hated it.  It's just not for me, yet I do it as it's the most efficient way to get exercise for me where I live.  The roads and hills are not conducive to biking.  There are no side walks, no shoulders on the road, nothing but hills everywhere you look.  You take your life in your own hands biking.  I do own a mountain bike and keep it up north at my house by the lake.  I'm hoping to do more activities with it up there, but back home I'm relegating to weightlifting and jogging. Saturday I ran a couple miles on the treadmill.  I could have done more, but thankfully didn't.  Legs…
