March 01, 2017

Instagram Post: Trying to beat the rain today, just finished my first #biking adventure of March. 15 miles around town. Roads were wet but the temperature was great. Nothing to spectacular on this ride. I did go past the lake though so here's a picture from a different perspective. Now to enjoy my day off. #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou

The Ride: A little wet out there so it wasn't really enjoyable at all but it is the first of the month and time to start over. Did areas that I know very well. Just wanted to beat the rain and put up a decent mileage number. There was a no frills kinda ride.

March 02, 2017

Instagram Post: It's Thursday and that usually means #swimming but change of plans. Instead I did my Friday #StrengthTraining tonight. Felt pretty good actually. I added a 20 minute #recumbentbike station to the workout. I even added weight tonight so improvement is happening. I then preceded to reorganize the #HomeGym but realized spacing was pretty good the way it was (it was a workout itself moving all that equipment). So it's strength equipment on one side, cardio on the other. I changed my routine because weather permitting, I have enough time to go #biking before work tomorrow. Speaking of work, #10000steps achieved today. Overall it's been a very successful day! I'm happy with my performance. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

 

 

March 03, 2017

Instagram Post: The day after #StrengthTraining I'm sore. Especially sore in the upper body. It took about 5 miles or so to get my legs going today. The heavy wind and crisp air didn't help much. At any rate, 25 miles of #biking this morning. Hit the #BlackwoodEstates circuit plus a little more. Not the best of rides but I'm still out there peddling and that's a wonderful thing. #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou

The Ride: Not much drama on the road. Pretty straight forward. Went through well known neighborhoods. A good ride

March 04, 2017

Instagram Post: Windy, cold, ugly kinda day. I still went #biking though. 20 miles today. No frills, no fun. I've definitely lost my mind. There was no enjoyment today but powering through days like this in February will make 70 mile rides in June better and more enjoyable #Goals #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: Character building! The Instagram post says it all. I suffered through this one. I have a goal this year and in order to hit that goal, I need to bike in temperatures and conditions like this. Thats all I have to say about this.

March 05, 2017

Instagram Post: Gave the #recumbentbike a spin after work. Just 10 miles, wanted to get the blood pumping a bit. #10000steps at work as well. A nice little Sunday #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou

 

 

March 06, 2017

Instagram Post: (1) At it earlier today before work. It's Monday and that's #StrengthTraining day. Normal routine. I also threw in some #recumbentbike work. It's also my #birthday I may be getting old in age and body, but I'm still a kid at heart and mind! Now working all day. #HomeGym #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou #happybirthdaytome (2) On my lunch break and decided to go to #TimberCreekPark and walk. I know I walk all day at work but hey it's nice outside today, it's my #birthday so let's do something different. Now unfortunately back to work for a few hours #YouVsYou #FitDontQuit #FightForIt #happybirthdaytome #walking

 

March 07, 2017

Instagram Post: Had a work meeting today. I got out in enough time to squeeze in a 15 mile #biking adventure tonight. I've done this ride many times before so nothing new to report. I feel like Johnny from #TheOutsiders because lately I've really been digging sunsets. Something peaceful and calming about them. Sometimes you just need to appreciate what's around you. It felt like a spring day with temperatures in the mid 60s. Shorts and 2 short sleeve shirts was the attire and I was comfortable. I even got a good sweat going. This is the type of winter weather I approve of. Until next time #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou

The Ride: Did not feel the best on the rode today. Felt great in stretches but overall very sluggish. It was a bad ride. I think it had more to do with mental health then physical health

March 08, 2017

Instagram Post: A day off. Weather is great so I went #biking Only went 2 miles away from home but hit the neighborhoods within that radius. That turned into a 31 mile ride. I should be feeling good about this today but I don't. Actually quite the opposite. Very depressed today for no apparent reason. Usually biking or exercise gets me out of this funk but not today. I'm sure it'll pass. Always does. #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou

The Ride: Did not feel any better today. My mind is heavy and I couldn't shake it. This ride was all muscle memory. I doubt I reaped any advantages from it.

March 09, 2017

Instagram Post: Its Thursday! On Thursday's we go #swimming The meme says it all. I hate running. Tonight's swim was not great. In fact the last couple days have not been great in the work out department. I may need rest. My head was better today but not my performance. I think it's a win that I still go out and do it. It would be easy to quit but I'm still trying #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou

 

 

 

 

March 12, 2017

Instagram Post: I needed a couple "me" days and I have to say that I actually felt good mentally and physically for the first time honestly in a couple weeks. The days off helped me focus. The rest is something my body needed as well. That said I got back on the #recumbentbike today for a 10 mile ride and felt good. Back to the normal routine tomorrow. It's #MarchMadness #DaylightSaving and you know I love incorporating holidays into my blog so I had to add it to the post #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

 

 

 

March 14, 2017

Instagram Post: Worked today. Played tonight. #WinterStormStella came through. Luckily my area did not get hit real hard. Dusted off the #mountainbike and hit the trail. This is my kind of obligatory snow picture. It was more ice and slush then snow. Tough to pedal through at times. Rode the trail twice which is a little over 12 miles. Great sky again, beautiful scenery (especially like the baseball field I played on as a kid covered in snow), always a good day when it can be a bike day #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou

 

 

March 15, 2017

Instagram Post: #BewareTheIdesOfMarch it was a cold one today. It's also #biking day but I chose to do it #recumbentbike style. 30 miles just pumping the blood through the body! Also a collage of some step pics from when I was taking that "me break" #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

 

 

March 16, 2017

Instagram Post: Having a good #MentalHealth day today. In a good mood. Hit the pool for some #swimming after work. 4000 yards tonight at the Y. Good performance. Over 10,500 steps at work on the day as well. A nice little Thursday. #10000steps #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

 

 

March 17, 2017

Instagram Post: #happystpatricksday?? it's Friday & thats #StrengthTraining day. The coldness outside is ideal for indoor workouts. This 90 minute circuit always kicks my ass but I feel so good when I'm done. Now onto work. Have a great day my friends #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou

Instagram Post: The long and winding (and uphill) road. It has felt like forever since I've been on my bike (and I struggled at times). 15 miles around Grenloch and Grenloch Lake tonight. The weather was perfect. A big step day at work as I covered #10000steps. I'm off so let's see if you can do an epic #biking activity. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: Just felt good to get out and ride. Its been a long time. Didn't feel great but I've been in worse shape. The long uphill battle here is a good barometer for where I'm at. I made it up the hill so that a good sign.

March 22, 2017

Instagram Post: I had a productive day off. I went #swimming this morning. I then did a bunch of errands which included booking a room for #SeaGullCentury2017 & registering for this years #RideOfSilence (that's my official season kick off event for #biking events. Also it was moved to my town this year. The starting point is literally a half mile from my house.) Later in the day I did my #StrengthTraining routine. My days are a little messed up this week and while I wanted to bike today, the wind was to much. Tomorrow looks better and I'm off again so I'll get out there! #YouVsYou #FitDontQuit #FightForIt

 

 

March 23, 2017

Instagram Post: mwmoweryTwo (I said two), #biking activities today. The temperature was better but it was still windy AF out there. My first ride this morning was just over 45 miles. I basically took Fries Mill Road until it merged into Delsea Drive. I didn't realize I would pass Delsea High School, so once on Delsea Drive, I knew I'd bike over to Glassboro High School. Directly across the street from Glassboro High School is Rowan University so I pedaled around there a bit. Basically stayed on main roads until I got home after that. I didn't really explore much but I was in Clayton, Delsea, Franklinville, Glassboro & Pitman on my bike today so that was pretty good. After a couple errands I hit the #gloucestertownshiphealthandwellnesstrail twice for 13 more miles today. About 50 total miles on the day. I nice day of riding. #YouVsYou #FitDontQuit #FitDontQuit

 

The Ride: Very windy for both rides. Long straight roads. This journey took me into more townships in South Jersey. It was straight forward, just hit the road and go. An effective day all things considered.

March 25, 2017

Instagram Post: It's Saturday, I worked (usually off). I planned on #biking after work but it was raining so I hit the #recumbentbike instead for an hour. 26 miles & 8300 steps at work. Not a bad little Saturday. Until tomorrow #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

 

 

March 26, 2017

Instagram Post: After work #swimming activity tonight. About an hour, 3000 yards. Wasn't terrible but not great either. I haven't been in the pool a lot recently but still trying to do something every day. My weekly routine has been off, hoping to get back on track this week. Until next time #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou

 

 

March 27, 2017

Instagram Post: It was kinda of a long rough day at work. 15,000 steps gives you an idea of just how rough it was. Nothing a little #biking adventure couldn't cure though. I rode the #gloucestertownshiphealthandwellnesstrail twice then hit #grenlochleasheddogpark / #grenlochlake for a little off roaring. 17 hard miles, but fun miles. I truly found an activity that I enjoy and want to do all the time (that just happens to be exercise) go figure. Overall it was a good day. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: First ride on the new 2017 Trek Marlin 5 Mountain Bike. Halfway through the trail I realized I could hit the Off Road trails at the lake so this truly was a good ride to break in the bike. I actually felt comfortable riding off road so that right there sold the bike for me. If the trails are a reasonable distance away, I could bike there, if further, I'd have to drive to the trail. The fat tires on this thing are great off road but really make you work on the road surface. That said, its so much better then the WalMart bike I used for years.

March 29, 2017

Instagram Post: After an extra half day at work I jumped on my bike and hit the trail. Then I biked a lot more. #biking clears my mind and this has been an overly stressful week. Some people think it's crazy to go on a couple hour ride but it's pure bliss to me. 32 miles on the day. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: Beautiful day, solid ride. The post says it all. A good head clearing kinda day. Sometimes I just need to be alone on my bike.

March 30, 2017

Instagram Post: Out of work and snuck in a couple laps on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandwellnesstrail before the rain hit (yes I got a few drops on me before I was done.) Wish I could have done more but hey it's 12 miles of #biking for the day and towards the 3000 mile goal for 2017. Busy ass day at work (not in a good way either) #10000steps obtained as I clocked in 12+. A decent overall day.

The Ride: Overcast skies and a little rain but besides that the ride was decent. A couple times on the trail was good for the day.
