Buzz Worthy? Glacier National Park

100% on the second workout

A typical hike in Glacier is 10 miles with 2,000′ gain and 2,000′ descent.

Not sure why i was able to do the same thing i did over five weeks ago.

You take a break that long and you have to lose something – maybe even a lot.

Not this time.

The only difference is that while i missed going to a gym, i did not miss staying vibrantly active outdoors.

In the past, missing two weeks at the gym and it was almost like starting over. From this historical experience, i created a “no more than 10 days without a gym workout” rule.

At 10 days or less away, i was able to pick up exactly where i left off.

Influence your workout conditions in your favor

lightweight mens vest
Forecast for Sept 22-29 has daytime temps mid-50’s and nighttime/morning in mid-30’s. This Summer’s first four trips didn’t involve a vest.

 

Mens long underwear
Ordered this yesterday for delivery tomorrow (Tuesday). We fly to Glacier Saturday.

 

Influence your workout conditions in your favor.

Forecast for Sept 22-29 has daytime temps mid-50’s and nighttime/morning in mid-30’s.

Be prepared.

For colder than normal weather.

For aging.

Exercise like you mean it.

(and of course, sleep, eat, stretch, and motivate yourself like you mean it too)

One Mail Box Challenge

At first glance, why not ease up today?

Knowing today is a workout day and that tomorrow (a Saturday) i arrive in Glacier National Park, today’s workout will be light normal.

The workout i do should have no bearing on the significant walking mileage the next seven days.

So the temptation to go light today has subsided.

Also, today marks the end of three-mailboxes-a-day.

Comeback 2015

We habitually do what comes naturally

Taking risks comes naturally when you consistently take risks.

Not taking risks comes naturally when you consistently refuse to take risks.

The gate was open even though school was in session. An open gate is an attractive nuisance.

i took it.

The first three 400 meter intervals were on the track before Roy, the groundskeeper/security host politely asked me to leave. We had a nice conversation and he understood that i was not offended.

With seven more 400’s to go, i simply jogged across Turkey Lake Road to the shady side – the Universal Studios side – to complete the track workout. Each interval started by the sign in the middle photo above and concluded 400 meters down the sidewalk. Recovery was the walk back to the sign to begin again.

It was a nice start. An official start to 2015 track season. Ten times 400 meters at 90-95 seconds each with a 400 meter recovery walk.
