Grinnell Glacier hike 2019.

Rain check please.

Yesterday’s 30-mile Disney bicycle ride was cancelled.

We (Orlando) needed an all-day rain.

More rain this afternoon.

The early bird gets the worm.

Sunrise is 6:50 AM.

Hoping to be in the saddle by then.

Skip a day, like a broken record

No exercise yesterday.

Skip a day and it makes skipping the next day easier.

Like a broken record.

When daybreak hits in two hours, a long bike ride is planned.

Looking forward to this morning’s 40k

Red Carpet for Cast Members only
Red Carpet treatment for Cast Members and their Guests to celebrate their years of Disney Service. Fall 2014.

 

Took last Friday (three days ago) off from working out to do a college visit.

We walked roughly 15 miles in 24 hours, so there’s that.

And we ate well too.

How Much Is Enough?

Progress requires motivation after the honeymoon phase

Masters Track digital running log
Aim was six minutes or faster.

 

Progress requires motivation after the honeymoon phase. “Get healthy” honeymoons last a few weeks to a few months. This applies to exercise routines too.

Yesterday ran nine miles, including a four-mile warmup with the fourth mile at seven minutes flat. Aimed for seven flat, delivered seven exactly.

Walked mile five and then began another four mile workout, photo above.

Aim for the first mile in the second set was six minutes flat, or faster.

At 800 meters, was a bit behind at 3:08.

Second 800 was 2:59.

Will take 6:07.

That second 800 really felt amazing.

Find a million ways to stay motivated.
