Monday Maintenance: 7/18

I am still not up to snuff, but in an attempt to get back on track I went to the gym on Monday to do some maintenance work with my legs, which have been getting tight over the last few weeks.  I rode my bike to work and to the gym after work and could still feel my chest constricting.  I tried to run on the dread mill but could only get in a mile after the two mile bike ride.  I then did some abs and some exercises to strengthen my legs and hips.  I tried not to leave the gym discouraged, but the timing of this illness has coincided with some personal disappointments, so it has been a bit of a tough patch.  However, I am hopeful that things are getting better.



  1. Good job even trying to go to the gym when you didn't really feel up to it.
    Sorry you are going through a low physically and emotionally, there will be a light at the end of the tunnel.
    PS. You and your lovely wife are welcome at our house in the Butte if you ever plan a trip out : )

  2. Jessie,

    That sounds wonderful. I would love to take a trip out there! No idea when I could fit it in our travel plans already extend into summer of next year! We can never get to all the place we want to go! Also, my work is busy in the spring and summer while Hiroko's is during fall and winter. Ha! Ha! Isn't that just a kick in the pants! But, I really would love to make a trip out there, maybe we can find a race!?!
