Fitness Center Multi #1

[Tuesday, October 1, 2013]

I started following the Just Finish program in Don Fink's beIronfit book. I headed to the fitness center and completed a 1600 yd swim workout, 15 minute run workout and a strength training workout.

Bear Creek Lake Park - Jewell Loop

[Sunday, September 29, 2013]

I finally got out on the bike again. It is a gorgeous day today. I think the temperature was in the mid 60's. It was sunny, clear and calm.

I rode by the Carmody Rec Center to pick up one of the city's bike trail maps. Then I proceeded down to Morrison Road into Bear Creek Lake Park. I'm pretty sure I ended up on the Mt. Carbon Trail. I came out of the park, rode under C470 and then headed back up north to Alameda into Jewell.

There's really no such thing as a flat ride along the front range. I had a number of climbs and my legs are definitely feeling the workout.

3 Mile Kendrick Lake Loop

[Thursday, September 26, 2013]

I didn't feel ready to run again yesterday. I felt fine today, although not charged up to do the workout. The workout went fine, although I didn't feel light and fast like I did two days ago. I think it makes sense that I should still aim for three runs each week and see how I feel with increasing the distance.

3 Mile Kendrick Lake Loop

[Tuesday, September 24, 2013]

Yesterday when I wrote that I can't let so much time pass before my next workout I wasn't thinking that I was going to do another one today. But, last night I realized that I felt really good. I was also going to be early. So, I decided that I would do a nice early morning run today.

3 Mile Kendrick Lake Loop

[Monday, September 23, 2013]

I think it was right around 50 degrees and very windy this morning. It worked out okay for me to head out in my shorts and t-shirt. I was maybe just a little bit cool and probably would have been too warm if I wore a windbreaker.

Multi-tasking

[Wednesday, September 18, 2013]

I did another walk/run/walk workout today. Since I needed to make a deposit in our checking account, I turned it into my workout. Mapping it out, it looks like I walked for about .9 miles, ran for 1.1 miles, ran for 1.6 miles and finished up by walking .4 miles for a total workout of about 4 miles.

The weather was gorgeous: sunny, in the mid- to upper-70's.

Bike Adventure

[Sunday, September 15, 2013]

We have continued to have some amount of rain every day. I got out a couple of times with Zen earlier in the day and then did some programming work. So, later in the afternoon when we had what seemed to be a break from the rain I decided to get out for an easy bike ride just to get my legs under me again.

3 Mile Kendrick Lake Loop

[Thursday, September 12, 2013]

We have had a lot of rain this week and this morning was no exception. So, I put on my Performance IllumiNITE shell and a baseball cap and headed out the door. Right away I unzipped the pit vents as I started the walk portion of the workout. I still ended up getting pretty warm during the workout and figured I would have been better off just accepting that I was going to get soaked in my t-shirt.

Hello, again. It's been awhile hasn't it?

[Tuesday, September 10, 2013]

2013 has proved to continue to be a busy year. I guess that's just the way life is going to keep on being for me, though.

Eli is just over 20 months old and doing great. We are working on getting him to use two-word sentences. He has almost 90 words that he knows and is now always picking up new ones.

Lana's practice slowed down a bit over the summer months, but has otherwise been doing very well.

My web development business is doing well and I have been focusing on taking my expertise to the next level.

What a year it has been!

[Friday, December 28, 2012]

I'm not even going to try to recap the entire past year. I'll just say that it has been an amazing ride.

It's hard to believe that my son will be one year old in just five days from now. He is not going to be a baby forever. While there were moments with him this past year that felt like they would never end, overall the time has gone by so quickly.

My web development business did quite well.

My wife's private practice did well.

Life is good.
