Tired, Busy and Grateful

[Sunday, October 4, 2015]

I'm continuing to experience insomnia. So, I've been up since very early this morning. And, I've been extremely productive today. I spent the major part of my day defining and starting to build my personal branding website. I've decided that I need to take a different approach than I've been taking to build up passive income on the Internet. Instead of solely teaching people how to do Drupal I am going to branch out into producing an entire STEM curriculum. I will also be pursuing affiliate marketing opportunities. read more ...

Stationary Bike

[Saturday, October 3, 2015]

I had just a short time to do a bike workout today and headed to the fitness center in the afternoon. I did my first 10-20-30 type of workout. For minutes, I did 30 seconds at less than 100 watts, 20 seconds at around 150 watts and 10 seconds at an unknown wattage. The gears for the respective intervals were 5, 10 and 20. When I was in gear 20 the speed read in the range of 25 mph.

I think that 15 minutes was a good start for this workout. I think 30 minutes would have been too much.

Masters Swim

[Friday, October 2, 2015]

I completed 2100 of the scheduled 2400 workout today.

I was up again at around 1:30AM and just decided to get out of bed around 2:45 AM. It's getting pretty ridiculous how much this is happening. I was feeling tired when it was time to leave, but knew that I wanted to get something done to start my day; I hadn't been very productive to that point.

I feel so good having completed the swim workout and it definitely did give a kick start to my day.

Road Ride Zone 2

[Thursday, October 1, 2015]

I gave Eli a chariot ride to school and picked him up as well. It's nice to be able to get in a workout this way. I'm going to need to fix up the chariot though. It's falling apart.

Masters Swim

[Tuesday, September 29, 2015]

Today was another good hard workout. I missed just 100m on the 3X200 pull set. It was too hard for me to keep up with my lanemates who were using the paddles. On the 4X150 (50 kick/ 100 swim) I hung in the best I could on the first 2 and then I put on fins to catch up on the last two.

Road Ride Zone 2

[Saturday, September 26, 2015]

I got up this morning and was productive right away. Once I reached a good stopping point I headed out for my bike ride. I decided to ride the Morrison / C470 / Dinosaur Ridge / 93 / 40 / Rooney Road / Jewell route to make sure I finished in under two hours. I think I rode the route slightly faster than I have previously. I came in at under 1:40.

Masters Swim

[Friday, September 25, 2015]

This was the last Friday of the month, so I swam in a different lane with some different lane mates. As a result, I pretty much did the workout on my own while my lane mates did whatever they chose to do. I needed just a little extra time at the end to finish the 200m cooldown that brought to the workout total of 2250m. I did a fair amount of all four strokes during the course of the workout.

Road Ride Zone 2

[Thursday, September 24, 2015]

I ended up just picking Eli up in the chariot after school for my workout today. I didn't even workout at all yesterday. I'm a little anxious about how much fitness I'm losing, but also enjoying a little bit of a breather. I think I've still got a bit of time that I can relax before I need to get back to more structure and volume.

Happy New Year

[Thursday, September 24, 2015]

Yesterday was Yom Kippur. I went to services in the morning. Lana had decided to go for a hike and Eli was in school. So, I was able to take a spot in the back corner of the sanctuary and cover myself with my tallit. It got pretty uncomfortable standing for three hours. But, that was just part of I got to experience.

I fasted through the time that our guests arrived for the break the fast. The scene was quite chaotic and noisy with all the children running around and playing. It was wonderful.
