Disc Golfing, Gym Updates, & The Boy Dog

I am quite pleased with how this video turned out and its well worth a watch until the end. The Dude & I were throwing some plastic and the wind was clearly out of the East Southeast. As I was riding the bike back to the casa, the wind was coming directly out of the east.

Our local NOAA site placed A Big Ol L right on the grand valley and my time lapse captures the circling low pressure gradient moving over us. Its Pretty Damn Cool

Been taking The Boy Dog to all of his favorite hikes and he sure does seem to enjoy himself these days. His instincts are sharp as ever, he still eats with enthusiasm, and spends the nights as close to me as humanly possible. Paws Of Love

Bench Press - Slow & Controlled - Moved up to the 40 pound dumbbells incline press
Back Days - Haven't made any really advances
Biceps - Added 25's on the Preacher Curls - 10's on the curl bar for the triple 8's
Triceps - Kick Backs w/20 pound dumbbells
Shoulders - At the end of my shoulder/tri day, I use the 10 pounders and complete side raises AND front raises as one set. Slow Burn
Legs - Lousy cramp during lunges - I could feel that exact spot for like three days

The Dude, Loki, Shadow Boy, & Myself went for a little "hike" Sunday and came across these massive rock crawling machines. As you can kind of see, this lip was taller than these vehicles. These crazy crawlers made it look so easy and the sound from their roaring motors were impressive as all get out. Oh, By The Way, That Is A Gal Driving This Beast Here

Our poor mighty Colorado River just isn't so mighty these days. I stood here with the Boy Dog for awhile, he dug himself a beautiful cool spot under a juniper tree, reminiscing about the Indian Commercial from way back. Not intending to be a Debby Downer here but I am still amazed by the stupidity of my fellow human.

Just yesterday, an old guy with his grandchild's watching, was hosing down his driveway. Like spraying the main crack in the middle of the driveway. Gallons of clean water gone. Some how that led me to believe that they have how many lights on inside, dragon plug ins, and you just know that the television is broadcasting to an empty room.

I then really get on myself for subscribing to those damn thoughts. Why do I waste my time?? Why do I dwell on that crap?? Why are you subjected to this??  Well G M Chrysler did I ever go sideways there

KAFM received a prestigious award from the arts foundation!! I am totally spacing out on the title at the moment. Its a yearly presentation in recognition for community supported arts and KAFM was honored to be this years recipient this year!!

1) Finish Out The Month Injury Free At The Gym - In General Really
2) Continue cleaning up the OM Property

5) Add some serious miles on the saddle

Mid Month & A Swift Kick

Small-A In The Cellar - Righteousness 

                                These photos pretty much sum up the first few weeks of April.

            Yes, been in the gym everyday and I am on day 106 of a mile a day & 100 push ups.

                           Enjoyed an amazing trip to Steamboat for the Cody's Cup Challenge.

Spring Clean Up around here has taken up my time as well. GJ has this beautiful program every spring were the city comes by and picks up trash, green waste, and old debris for free. Its the Boy Dogs favorite time of year!!!

I hosted the Superstitious Garage on Friday the 13th and opened the show with the trailer from 1980's The Shinning. Played title tracks from The Omen, Psycho, X-Files, while mixing in So Lonely by The Police, Sirens by The Cheese, and Witchy Woman off the Eagles LP and many more choice cuts. I received a number of phone calls and text messages throughout this two hour show. Here is the link:
This link is only good for two weeks. Starts with the entertainment calendar and then on to The Shinning. Its A Damn Good Show!!!

March Numbers And Photos

Cycling Numbers Were Still Solid BUT Running Miles Took A Digger This Past Month. However, lifting at the gym has produced some real results finally. Couldn't be happier with that outcome!!

Strava recorded 37 activities, 286 miles on the bike, ONE personal record, and only 49.1 miles on the feet. As for a reference here, March 2107 logged 20 hours, 158 miles on the bike, and No Running Miles.

A Mile A Day & 100 Push Ups totaled up 9,000 push ups on day 090 and that includes the double up 200 push ups in Vegas when I spaced the first day after traveling. I am pleased with my awareness of form and how quickly I am able to recognize my body alinement and adjust accordingly. Proprioception My Friends!!

Now the good news from the gym and bragging rights really. Sometime back in the early 90's I tore my corocord brachialis muscle and bench pressing is beyond uncomfortable. That means I have only lifted dumbbells for the past year and decided to try the bench press this week.

I laid down on the bench after completing my chest routine and felt pretty comfortably with just the bar. The 20 reps twice went rather well so I put 25 pound plates on the bar and easily performed a pain-free 12 rep set. Replaced the 25's with 35's and another 10 reps with ease. Shocked

The testosterone took over and I threw on the 45 plates. Told myself that I would ONLY try one rep and see where that lands me. Eight solid reps later, no spotter, I called that GREAT!! Then my endorphins got the best of me and I added 10's to the 45's and psyched myself up for one rep.

Just after laying down and finding my grip, thankfully came to my senses, " What the hell am I thinking?!?!?!?!" I quickly asked myself. I immediately took ALL the weight off the bar and cooled down with two sets of 20 with JUST the bar. Happily stayed PAIN-Free, Injury-Free, & hit the pool with the biggest smile ever.

RADIO SHOW: I am hosting ' Enjoy The Ride ' this Monday April the 2nd at 1pm Mountain Time Zone. My idea is Classic B-Side Rock and Classic Animated Movie Soundtracks during the 3 hour block. I will turn on the Web Cam when I arrive at the station.

I will be recapping Vegas Odd Sheets from Baseball, Hockey Pro/College, NCAA Final Four, World Cup 2018, The FUNd Drive, Weather, And My Usual Observations From Around The Valley. Totally looking forward to the show

Above is the Map of what I am thinking about this Sept or Oct. Started my research a few weeks ago after day dreaming about for awhile now. Crossed paths with a guy that has ridden this BOTH ways and nonchalantly painted a simple picture. That guy is a stud and I am so not in his caliber. I failed to mention to him that I enjoy pushing my bike. HA

And I was blown away by how many hits this blog recorded!! Seriously!! I am still reeling that 60 folks landed on the Vegas March Madness entry. The Wordless Wednesday went down in flames, end of the month numbers sees traffic, but Vegas takes the cake. Pretty Damn Cool

1) Love On The Boy Dog
2) Revisit My Exercise Log Card At The Gym & Update
3) Land Two New Clients This Month
4) Focus On Legs In April
5) Love On THAT Boy Dog

Have A Wonderful April & Be Amazing Out There!!
