July 01, 2017

Instagram Post: It's July 1. It's also #CanadaDay so for all my Canadian friends out there, thank you for the continued support. This morning before work I got in 18 miles on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail and surrounding neighborhoods. A good start to the month. Now just finishing up the work day #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: A very typical ride. No suprises to report. Felt good.

Instagram Post: Today really was an epic #biking adventure and another bucket list item. I've hung out with one of my best friends Friday & Saturday night and decided to bike to his house today for lunch. He lives about 12 miles away. He also lives right next to Thompson Family Park in East Greenwhich which I've biked many times. I always drove there and biked. Today I biked there. Great sense of accomplishment. After the ride there, a quick rest, I made the trek home. About 25 miles in all and a really fun ride. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: Something I've wanted to do for a while and finally got a chance to do it. There were sections of this ride that were very challenging with a string of hills in consecutive order. A few narrow bike lanes created another concern. Overall I felt good and this was a decent ride.

July 03, 2017

Instagram Post: 17 miles of #biking before work this morning on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail and surrounding neighborhoods. I then had a big step day at work. The ride was good, had good legs today. Early morning #biking is very calming for me most likely it's before the stress of the day begins. A great day all together #10000steps #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: Getting up to ride was easier at the beach. Maybe I got better sleep there. This was an exact duplicate of the July 1 ride. There was differnces in strength and speed but overall I still felt pretty good.

Instagram Post: Happy #4thofjuly this mornings #biking adventure was 28 miles. I biked through every neighborhood on the south side of the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail and then used the trail to get home. It took about 10 miles just to get my legs going. This wasn't the best ride but I had a plan of what I wanted to accomplish and I did it. Attached is a picture of the #blackwoodfirehouse and a little throw back to July 2, 2016 when I was biking in historic #philly and stopped by #indepencehall (seems appropriate for today) #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: I feel like absolute crap. My legs hurt. My legs really hurt. Maybe this riding in higher gears is not the best approach. I did do what I wanted to do today so at the end of the it was a win. Today I feel my joints yelling at me.

July 06, 2017

Instagram Post: It's been raining all day and looks to continue all night. So today I did something I haven't done in a while, I went #swimming 3000 yards over at the Y today and although the time was slow my joints really appreciated the low impact of lap Swimming compared to cycling. It was good mentally as well doing a different form of exercise. Now just enjoying the rest of my day off #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

 

 

July 08, 2017

Instagram Post: Back at it tonight. 17 miles on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail Home course, familiar ride. Legs felt great after a couple days off #seagullcenturytraining #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou

The Ride: Just a quick ride. Nothing spectacular here. Just good being on the road

Instagram Post: Spent the day with the nephews. Saw one in passing, took another to a movie & saw the other win his championship game in a baseball tournament. A good day. I then came home and biked around town. 25 miles of #biking tonight on this HOT night was a perfect end to a good day. Until tomorrow #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: It was just hot by the time I started. The Blackwood Estates tour is a good way to build mileage and stay close to home. Legs were tired by the end but overall I felt great. This is a good ride with a lot of long straight aways which is good for working on speed.

Instagram Post: A couple trips up and down the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail this morning before work. It's already hot and humid out there. Any #biking day is a good day. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: I like morning rides. I'm not tired from the work day grind at this point. A couple quick trips with no real issues or achievements to report.

Instagram Post: Today's #biking adventure was highly educational. I was out with a friend and we were near #washingtoncrossingpark so naturally I saw this as an opportunity to visit an important historical landmark in our nation and of course bike around it. The museum was very cool. I learned a lot about our countries fight for independence today and got in 10 miles. It was so hot outside today. I think I dislike humidity more than the wind. All in all a rich full day. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: I wouldn't call this a workout but more of an educational ride. I did this because I now shared the same land as Washington's troops took during our nations battle for Independence. It was an opportunity I couldn't pass up. The trails I rode were all flat and paved which was nice. It was a casual ride soaking up the atmosphere.

July 13, 2017

Instagram Post: With thunderstorms rolling in, I went #swimming tonight instead of #biking. I also had a rough mental day so Swimming clears my head better. 3000 yards in just over an hour. Felt good being in the pool. Until tomorrow #YouVsYou #FitDontQuit #FightForIt #seagullcenturytraining

 

July 14, 2017

Instagram Post: It's still wet and nasty outside. I have the closing shift at work so I dusted off the #recumbentbike and did a quick workout this morning. 15 miles basically to keep the muscle memory of peddling going. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytrainingining

 

 

July 16, 2017

Instagram Post: It was wet and nasty when I got up so I went to the pool. Upped the yardage to 4000. Great swim. Then I worked all day. It actually got really nice out but I was pretty tired when I got home. I decided to take care of the yard tonight and leave a biking adventure for tomorrow on the day off. It was a 14,000 step day! Until tomorrow. #swimming #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

 

 

July 17, 2017

Instagram Post: It was hot out there today. 28 miles of #biking activity on the day. I started on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail and then worked my way over to #GlenOaks #VeteransMemorialPark & #valleybrookcountryclub These are bigger neighborhoods and places I haven't been in a while. I started strong. Finished sweaty, dehydrated and tired. I guess that equals a good ride. Now to be lazy the rest of my day off #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: Long Ride. Started on the trail and wanted to go somewhere new. Not exactly new but I hadn't been through Glen Oaks and Valleybrook in a while so thats where I went. Two large neighborhoods made for a lot of mileage and tired legs. It was a good workout. Need to do this again.

July 18, 2017

Instagram Post: After work #biking activity took me down the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail and then through adjacent neighborhoods before a quick spin around Grenloch Lake. The temperature drop almost 20 degrees while I was on this ride. A good sweat kinda ride tonight! #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining This photo definitely makes this Lake look prettier than it is haha

The Ride: A typical ride these days. At points felt really good and others not so much. I actually biked around all the buildings at Lakeview tonight and that was a first. It added mileage and that is what this is all about. Happy with the ride and I felt decent. The heat was definitely a factor.

July 19, 2017

Instagram Post: It was HOT outside today, breaking 100 degrees and humid so my dumb ass says hey sounds like perfect conditions for a #biking adventure. This was tough today I'm not gonna lie. 3 times up & back on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail for 21 miles. So dehydrated right now. Time for water, shower and air conditioning. I should have gone Swimming :) #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: So hot outside. This ride was a struggle. I guess this was one of those building character rides but it sure wasn't fun.

July 21, 2017

Instagram Post: I got in 20 miles of #biking tonight. One of those rides without an agenda. I simply went where my gut told me to. I was on some new roads and some old roads. Even went to a park I haven't been to forever. Still the wrong bike for the park so I'll have to remember to bring my mountain bike back here. Interesting sky, steady ride, no frills just grinding out the mileage. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: I knew I wanted a change, I just didnt know what that would be. I just started peddling and when I felt like going right I did. Felt like going left I did. I eventually made a big loop and end at home. I've been through all these areas before just not in this way.

July 22, 2017

Instagram Post: A lot happening on this little #biking adventure. 1) tried to beat the thunderstorms (I did) but nervous about getting stuck out there with my hybrid so I took out the mountain bike. 2) Haven't road said mountain bike in a month so this was a little weird getting used to again. 3) since I was on the mountain bike I did a little off roading over at the Grenloch Lake Park. 4) leaving said park my Ornithophobia kicked in overdrive as I had to go past (in my mind) a thousand ducks (I think in reality it was 6). 5) I biked around Grenloch for 15 miles on paved roads while riding my mountain bike. At this point I'm praying for rain because this was a workout. That never happened so a shower at home will have to do instead. Until the next adventure #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: Good time tonight riding. I was nice using a different bike. Hard riding it at times but overall it was a blast. I beat the rain and managed to get through Grenloch which is something I haven't done in a while so overall this is a win.

July 23, 2017

Instagram Post: mwmoweryThere's been a lot of rain this month (not that I haven't biked a lot) so I've hit the pool a lot more. I have a love / hate relationship with #swimming and right now I'm loving it again. 4000 yards this morning. It's always good mixing up the routine a little. I felt pretty good today. Until the next adventure #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Swim: Actually pretty smooth. Probably because I have been hitting the pool on a more regular basis this month. A bit crowded but I just did my thing and it worked out well. A good workout.

 

 

July 24, 2017

Instagram Post: mwmowery26 miles of #biking after work tonight. I hit 6 neighborhoods I hadn't been through since the first week of June. Honestly didn't feel my best. Tired legs and the heat made it uncomfortable but I powered through it. It's always a good day when it can be a bike day #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: When you set out to bike neighborhoods, you bike until you are finished. Hot out there today and I felt it in the legs. A couple of these places have steep inclines so that is hard on the quads. That builds character however. Happy with the ride.

July 26, 2017

Instagram Post: I started today's #biking adventure on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail I then decided to explore a part of the township that I never have before. My township has three High Schools in it. I have been to the other two so today I went to the third. I biked around it and a couple neighborhoods (big neighborhoods) across the street from the school. In all I went 25 miles and explored new places. I even rocked my #LBI shirt today as I wish I was back at the beach for another week. I felt really good on the ride. Good leg stamina today and that's been my major issue of late. All things considered it was a really nice ride. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: Definetly on the radar for a while to bike out to Triton High School. There was just one small section that was tricky to navigate but otherwise it was a pretty easy ride. I had intended to bike to all three township high schools but daylight was an issue so I just navigated around Glendora which was good because I hd not biked around here before. Two more neighborhoods down. Good ride.

July 28, 2017

Instagram Post: Up early this morning for no apparent reason. I decided to get a ride in before work. 20 miles total - 2x on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail and a lap + around #Grenloch Cool temperature but humid. This was a good sweat kinda day. Legs felt good up until mile 18 then I got tough. Besides that I felt really good. Now off to work. #biking #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: Straight forward. Nothing special. A good ride..

July 29, 2017

Instagram Post: Almost didn't go out #biking tonight. The weather looks miserable and honestly I used that as an excuse. I then told my brain to shut the hell up and I went out. I did the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail 3x hard. Just shy of 20 miles. Considering all the cross streets on this trail I had decent split times. I feel fabulous #BodyOverMind #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FightForIt

The Ride: Worked on speed tonight. It was a good ride. Sweated a lot. Its good to push yourself from time to time

Instagram Post: Another after work #biking adventure. Tonight I did the #gloucestertownshipcommunitypark #camdencountycollege #gloucesterpremiumoutlets circuit It was a Sunday night and I knew there wouldn't be many if any cars at the college or the outlets so it gave me the opportunity to really go through these areas without interruption. The park was a different story, lots of people dodging. I've always liked the aesthetics of this building (even used it in one of my films). The other pictures are more detailed maps of the ride along with a picture of the outlets. 18.5 miles and I felt great out there. First time in a week or so that I didn't have some issue. I truly love riding my bike. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #seagullcenturytraining

The Ride: Parking lot biking is a blast. Nobody bothering me tonight so I actually went through the college. It got dark on me, lights on! Fun ride. I like doing this one once a month or so.
