Thanksgiving 5K

Went out today and completed my second annual Thanksgiving 5K. Gotta get those Apple Watch achievements. It was a great day to go for a run actually. In Kansas you never know what kind of weather you are going to get. Yesterday I woke up to cold in the teens. Today I ran while it […]

This past week I posted about the new bike trainer I purchased from Amazon and my first workout using a video I saw on YouTube. I looked around online for apps/videos that would compliment my indoor riding and came across an article that mentioned a few apps that work on iOS. I have a QuadLock […]

Indoor Trainer: YouTube Workout

I got my indoor bike trainer from Amazon today and tried it out with a workout I found on YouTube. It’s a bit loud but compared to having to go outside, especially in the cold this winter, I can live with it. It was very sturdy and easy to set up. I look forward to […]

Evening Run: 3.3 miles (9:24/mi)

Afternoon Ride: 26.8 miles (1:46:43)

Went out for another full trail ride today. Was doing great until about the last couple of miles when I crashed again. At this point Shane isn’t going to allow me on the bike again. I’m not even sure if I want to get back on the bike again. Two rides and two crashes with […]

Evening Run: 2.4 miles (10:28/mi)

Since my hand is still sore I decided to forgo weight training this evening and went for another run. I was also surprised with getting my new Apple Watch series 3 with cellular delivered today. Being the geek that I am I got it all set up and took it out for a spin with me […]
