Weekly Bike/Workout Totals
Well I am embarrassed to get to share with the world that I have gained 14lbs over the past 3 weeks. I’ve been traveling, and have just plain fallen off the bandwagon. Not a good thing to do a month before I ride Fuji.
It is what it is and it’s given me a chance to think about why this is happening. It’s almost like I’ve turned into self-destruct mode. I’m not going to get stuck and beat myself up. Monday morning I will be starting to work out at the gym again, and continue with the bike riding.
This is a chance for me to forget the past, and make the next 3.5 weeks count. I think in the documentary I’m putting together, this is a good part of the story to examine. To look at what has happened just before I go to Japan. I can honestly say that I have lost interest in riding because it’s so blasted hot outside, or I have such a busy schedule. Well, let’s see what I can carve out for myself over the next 3.5 weeks. I get to focus on me for a bit, and get ready for the ride.
I’m too embarrassed to write what’s on my mind. What I need to do is report what I have done…and so next Saturday I will. BTW, I am climbing to Box Elder, a mountain next to Alpine, Utah. I think it’s about 11,000ft high. We’re at 4500ft, so it will be a good challenge and be similar to Fuji is elevation. I am considering getting up at 4am, riding from Salt Lake to Alpine, and then do the hike. I know it will be a physical struggle, but I’ve got to push a little to prepare.
Anyway, I will have better news next Saturday for you.
I promise to do better!
