Short Month & Tall Numbers From February 2018


I hit the gym today, but I just drove away since I don't have car insurance .... HA


February's numbers were pretty damn impressive considering my current state of mind. I say that because death landed in my lap a couple of times in February.


February 2017 posted a total of 32 hours and 267 miles. Thats when I was just doing my thing and not really grasping the fact that I would go over 3,000 miles on the commuter bike for the 2107 calendar year.


February 2018 recorded 331.6 miles on the bike and another 71.7 miles in my shoes. Strava always captured 42 hours and 4 new personal records. That simply blows my mind. And to think what those numbers would have been if my MAC trackpad hadn't gone out in Crested Butte. Thats another 4 days of missed numbers, including the demo day on the Fat Bikes riding the ski slopes of CB.


But without getting lost in numbers and BS, what a month. Ideal conditions weather wise, I have seriously enjoyed riding my bike, and its hard to wrap my mind around the fact that its Phuc-N March!! On the flip side, I leave for Vegas in about a week, Oh Baby


I am currently still participating in the Mile A Day & 100 Push Ups and added pretty much all new weights in the gym. Back on Monday, hadn't looked in awhile, pulled out my "chart card" and updated my weights. Tooting My Own Horn Here: 50 pound dumbbell one arm rows and thats up 10 pounds, 40 pound DB military press up from 27.5 pounds, and 45 pound DB incline chest press up from 30 pounds.



  **** Only Watch This Time Lapse If You Like The String Cheese Incident *****

I still focus on full ROM and concentrate on slow and controlled movements. And thats kinds difficult for me sometimes. Like some days I want to rush through or while I am in mid rep I will start to drift off about work or something. But I seem to be managing well and STILL injury free after  2,831 push ups, workouts at the gym almost 6 days a week, and playing in the snow with the Boy Dog.


Speak Your Truth, Consider Ours Feelings Before Be Reactionary, & Pound That H20,
Cheers
