November 01, 2017

Instagram Post: Its getting darker earlier every day. Tonight I had to get to the bank before it closed but I also wanted to bike. Not enough time for both. Then I realized, bike to the bank! So tonight's #biking adventure was practical not pleasurable but I still got some peddling in. In fact the 10 miles on my bike was more then my total commute in my car for work so it's always a good day when you bike more than you drive. I was some busy roads so know "scenery bike" picture. Instead a sunset picture. I've mentioned before I do dig a good sunset. It's peaceful. Oh and I was able to start November 1 off with a ride so win win. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #PushTo4000Miles

The Ride: When you have a purpose, you bike hard. I just had to get this ride done before dark so it was challenging. At any rate, a good 10 miles to begin the month.

Instagram Post: Beautiful day out there! Get out and do something. Did the old Blackwood circuit for 25 miles. I was in a mental funk this morning but the ride helped. Close to making it through another day. #TheStruggleIsReal #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #biking #PushTo4000Miles

The Ride: Great day, great temperature and a great ride. Tour of the town is always good. Hoping the weather continues to stay like this..

Instagram Post: Its #daylightsavings time so that miss daylight will be hard to come by for a few months. I made the most out of today by exploring an all new area. Covered a good portion of Pine Hill today and went past yet another high school (Overbrook) and think I'm somewhere around 10-12 high schools now. More importantly I did 51 miles of #biking today. My longest ride since #SeaGullCentury2017 made a big dent into the #PushFor4000Miles as well. Tired. Sore. Satisfied. I deserve that extra hour of sleep tonight. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: Great weather, rough rodes. Some of these roads just where hard on the bike. On the other hand, there was a lot of flat straight, long roads that really allowed me to open it up a little. Always cool to explore new places and this ride was nothing but them.

Instagram Post: Back at it this morning before work. 28 miles of #biking around the Grenloch Lake. Winter is coming my friends, it was cold today. Had to pedal hard to keep warm! #PushTo4000Miles #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: The morning rides are always good rides. They wake you up and get you going. The air is getting crisper and the daylight is getting shorter so I don't take this for granted.

Instagram Post: The #PushTo4000Miles #biking in 2017 continued today with a couple trips on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail It was cold but not terrible out there. I took out the #mountainbike #trekmarlin5 to change it up a bit. Some parts of the trail were smooth other parts had the fall foliage on the ground like the picture above. The scenery was quite nice at times. When I started today I only need 400 more miles to hit 4000. It's definitely in reach. I'm so focused on this right now. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: Riding the mountain bike is fun but it takes a lot more effort. That equals a better workout though. The trail was in bad shape, my hybrid would havehad a lot of issues.

Instagram Post: Those that have followed the blog for a while know I love my holiday collages. Unfortunately I'm a day late on this one but it's never really to late to honor those that serve. It was a cold morning as I snuck in a couple laps on the #gloucestertownshiphealthandfitnesstrail before work today. Yeah it's not even winter yet and I'm ready for summer. I do have a goal though of the #PushFor4000Miles of #biking before 2017 is over so I have to do it! #veteransday #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: Cold. Nothing special.

Instagram Post: It was wet, not really raining but I've biked in worse. Temperature was okay, no real wind which helped. Found a few new roads & neighborhoods on my journey today. Tried to find an inspirational quote picture for today's collage but realized, the best inspiration comes from within. I set goals this year and conquered them so I adjusted them. I've been inspiring myself all along. You can't find that epiphany on a google meme search. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #PushTo4000Miles #biking

The Ride: Wet but an inspiring ride. New areas. It wasn't as miserable as the weather would have made it seemed.

November 15, 2017

Instagram Post: Long day, but a good day. 30 miles of #biking I thought I went somewhere new, turns out it's just a couple places I've only been to once before and that was a while ago. It felt new. Then came a lot of driving to #salisburyuniversity for an Alumni Board of Directors Meeting. I walked around campus as I normally do for about 3.5 miles. In all a good fitness day, a good mental health day and a good me day. Now sleep. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #walking

The Ride: The bike ride was good. I felt like this was new but it turns out its just a neighborhood I went through a lomg time ago. I felt good on the road, a bit tired but overall it was a productive ride. My walk around campus is always enjoyable. I love this campus and just enjoy its beauty. Salisbury is a home away from home.

November 18, 2017

Instagram Post: Tonight after work I did something I haven't done since August, I went #Swimming! I've been so focused on #biking 4000 miles this calendar year that I've neglected other forms of exercise completely. So how did swimming go? IT SUCKED! At least the first couple hundred yards. I then regained my form. It's not like I haven't been doing cardo work, it's that this is a different kind of workout. I was tired but felt satisfied with the results. I need to do this more and I'm sure I will with the winter weather on the way. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

 

 

 

November 20, 2017

Instagram Post: Went #biking well tried to anyway. I could handle the temperature but combined with the 14mph wind made it really difficult. I did 10 miles as I'm still committed to my goal of 4000 miles this year. A little later today I went #swimming again. Trying to get back in the flow and also be productive on my day off. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

The Ride: Way to windy out there today. It was not enjoyable. I needed to do something exercise wise so since I recently got the swimming bug again, I hit the pool. Its been a while since I did both in the same day. It was a good day.

November 21, 2017

Instagram Post: The #PushTo4000Miles continued this morning. The temperature wasn't bad and the wind though horrible at times was not as constant as yesterday. No excuses, I simply need to get in the mileage. 20 miles mostly through Blackwood Estates (staying off the trail as there is still a lot of debris in certain places). Until the next adventure my friends #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #biking

The Ride: Not as cold as yesterday, windy at times. I just layered up and hot the road. All in all a good ride.

November 22, 2017

Instagram Post: This date in 1963, is one of the most famous dates in American history. I like to incorporate historical references and holidays into my blog. I've always found history fascinating. You've now learned something about me. My day, hours of positive energy, then a 20 minute meeting which completely ruined my mood. I went #swimming, it went well, but I'm still in a funk. Depressed. Seeking interaction but won't even reply to the texts and voicemails I received today. Too many mixed emotions. I'm rambling. Anyway, I did something for me today and I guess that's positive #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit and for @aubernutter #baddaysbuildbetterdays Let's hope tomorrow is better than today.

 

 

November 23, 2017

Instagram Post: Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Pretty cold out there this morning. I've also felt sick the past couple days. I felt good while #biking but now kinda bad again. Today's Thanksgiving adventure was simply staying local (meaning only a couple miles from home) I did mange 21 miles on the day just biking through neighborhoods, schools and parking lots. A good ride. Now to get cleaned up and spend the day with some family/friends and enjoy the day. Working a life in retail, I'm thankful my employer does realize some things are more important than starting your Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving Thursday. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #PushTo4000Miles

The Ride: I didn't feel my best. I pushed through it for a while but it wasn't one of my better rides. Cold. Cold. Cold. The weather bothered me today. The temperature was colder than earlier in the week but not as windy. I layered, but it was still tough. Maybe its because I am not feeling my best.

Instagram Post: It's Black Friday and being a retail manager it means one long ass day at work. That also means no time for the things I enjoy. Yes this is a silly post but hey at least I got some steps in. #CantReallyHashtagThis

 

 

November 25, 2017

Instagram Post: Saturday night #swimming at the Y! Faster time, more yardage, only one other person in the pool. A good stress relief after two crazy wok days. #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit

 

 

 

November 27, 2017

Instagram Post: The day started off fine, a couple trips on the trail. Then I did some #CyberMonday shopping before going to work where the day went completely downhill. Really down right now, that winter depression is starting early. The good mood and euphoria from #biking seems like years ago. Obligatory hashtags #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #YouVsYou

The Ride: Very familiar. No frills

November 29, 2017

Instagram Post: It's a beautiful day out there. I actually wore shorts on my #biking adventure today. Honestly I haven't been very inspired recently so today I put on the #SeaGullCentury2017 jersey and thought about all my achievements riding a bike since July 2015 and just how it really has changed my life. Maybe that's why today was so amazing weather wise for this time of year? I went 20 miles today and biked completely around Grenloch Lake. Just enjoying the scenery. As November is coming to a close, I've put myself in great position to achieve my goal of 4000 miles. Until tomorrow #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #PushTo4000Miles

The Ride: Good to be back out there. Beautiful day, tough ride. Felt a little out of shape on the hills but other then that it was fine.

Instagram Post: It's not every day that this area has an earthquake but today it happened! Yeah I didn't feel a thing. It makes for a good blog entry though. Last day of the month and I got in 12 miles of #biking before work. I don't have the final numbers yet but I'm within 200 miles of 4000 on the year. Bring on December! #YouVsYou #FightForIt #FitDontQuit #PushTo4000Miles

The Ride: Quality ride, good morning. No thrills.
