Although this time it isn't even mine. My wife (as I may have mentioned before) also has a history of back pain. She went so far as to have back surgery to remove a ruptured disc. Unfortunately, this does not cure all of the pain that the back can be in so she still has … Continue reading Day 171… Stupid Back Pain
Not really, but it sure seems to be getting that way. My friend from work whom I walk with decided to not show up for work today so I had to go it alone. Instead of throwing on my coat and hat, I decided to just go outside. Probably not the best idea. My first … Continue reading Day 170… Too Cold to Walk!
I never really thought about having to do races or exercising outside. But we got the opportunity to practice that on Monday. While it wasn't snowing or raining or anything like that, the wind was blowing about a thousand miles an hour... give or take. It was cold, it was windy, it wasn't fun. But … Continue reading Day 169… Weathering the Storm
This weekend was full of them. I wish I had a way to know exactly how many miles I have traveled lately as it sure seems to be a lot. This weekend in particular my wife and I did a 5K on top of all the exercise we are doing. We walked 3.2 miles on … Continue reading Day 166, 167 & 168… So Many Miles Traveled
Ah, another day in the gym. Another day surrounded by meatheads who flex in the mirror every 28.2 seconds and teenagers who think that swinging a dumbbell like a pendulum will actually help them build muscle. That's right, dude, use your back, hips, thighs and every other part and it will build your biceps. You're … Continue reading Day 165… Pumpin’ Iron
Why does it seem that every sport is out to get me? I hate the Miami Heat and who wins the championship this year? King Lebron and his big head. I hate basketball (watching and cheering for a team, not playing it) but it is still on TV. And I hate the Red Sox and … Continue reading Day 164… Stupid Red Sox
See, it's even annoying here on the internet. It's even worse when your neighbor has a dog that won't shut up. Granted it is only a little after 8 PM, and all I am doing is trying to watch a TV show that has lots of "quiet" parts between talking. So it's not like I'm … Continue reading Day 163… Woof Woof Woof!
My wife and I have already done the Dirty Dash and we've both already competed in our first 5K. I've also done it many times in my workouts and have now exceeded that quite a bit. But I've decided to go back and help my wife train the same way I did so she can … Continue reading Day 162… C25K again??
What a busy weekend that gets ruined by the Denver Broncos first loss. Okay, it didn't really ruin anything, but it wasn't how I wanted to spend my Sunday evening. But I'm orange and blue for life, so I certainly am not going to jump to another team like many do. They didn't play well … Continue reading Day 159, 160 & 161… Noooo!
Well, a personal record. But isn't that what records are? Yeah, someone can juggle longer than I can, someone can swallow more glass than I can, but does it really matter in the end? Maybe. They are all in record books to be immortalized while I'm just me. But anyway... I made it 5 miles … Continue reading Day 158… Another Record!
