I love hiking & cycling & Nordic skiing. Lift year round, more in the winter. Figure I'm banged up, but feeling good about being alive and still at it. Careers in the Marines and in law enforcement. Stayed reasonably fit, but it's a slow slide downhill. Trying to hang in there to do the things I enjoy.

Hiking (on snowshoes too), Nordic skiing, cycling, camping, fishing, hunting... Love all that. Finally I'm freed up from the 40 - 60 hour a week grind and I have the time to enjoy more of the outdoors, but it's a struggle to keep the ol' body on track with that plan. Too many old injuries. So - I'm not at all sophisticated about my workouts, I just try to stay active year 'round.

Spine problems have kept me from backpacking in recent years, but... I think I'm recovered enough to give it a try again this year. Perhaps even backpack in for a mountain mulie hunt like I used to do. I'd like that.

Hope everyone here achieves their goals and enjoys. I find myself a bit envious of MtWarden - he seems to be doing the stuff I can't quite manage anymore. Well, not at the level he's doing anyway.

Regards, Guy


Guy,

Of course they're not necessary by any means but the technology you get from them is pretty cool and incredibly accurate.

The last one I bought was the FitBit Alta HR and it was on sale for $80. It does a helluva lot for $80.

3 hrs running a chain saw, dragging/carrying the poles and rounds to a staging point, etc. About to head back out there. Too wet to get my truck back in there still. One section of my woods took a real beating. There's a black oak (we only have a few of those, mostly white oak here) I'm gonna have to make a tough call on... leaning pretty good. Also one large white oak split up high and is going to a dangerous mofo to take down and then apart. Got my work cut out for me. Have not said so much as a PEEP to my other customers about availability and don't intend to... haha.

What is your resting heart rate?

If you don't mind my asking.

60-65 would be normal. Right now after just getting up 67-74.

Snapshot from yesterday. Why the watch used these times I don't know. I have a funky heart with a little mitro valve prolapse and it skips around on occasion. Some extra KCl and it calms down. Doc I have now says keep doing what you are doing. At 75 I wouldn't be surprised if it does a major hiccup anytime. Today my Vo2 max sucks compared to the best of times.

That's pretty good.

That's where mine's at when I'm drinking. When I dry out it goes to the low 50's and working out is much easier. Grin...

If I was still drinking, I probably wouldn’t have to be torturing myself today.

In addition, getting on the stairmaster yesterday, some guy comes up and says are you Butch xxxx. I know the face from decades ago, but the name is gone. He gives it and it comes back. Big time basketball player from our younger days. A few years older. Went on to play well in college. Still mentally sharp, more than rough around the edges physically.

It appears, golf isn’t all that great for exercise.

Haha.

It is if you walk and carry a bag!

We went to the Marlin's/Cubs game last night.

I am feeling... not good.

Gym this morning, with an hour of cardio split between the "arc trainer" and the very nice exercise bike, as well as lifting and too danged many pullups for a 62 year old...

I feel a long ride coming on tomorrow. Wish me luck! smile Probably looking at 65+ miles 'cause my riding partner is crazy, and I'm silly enough to go along.

Sigh...

Your workout today sounds similar to mine.

I used to wonder when my riding partner would tell me to piss up a rope; it always cracks me up when he bitches but he doesn't quit. After too many rainy days I'm going to try to pedal up to the rockslide tomorrow afternoon.

Firewood day, 6 hours. Cut, haul, burn debris. Haven't started splitting it yet. Really a spectacular time of year to be out in the woods working all day and I'm very grateful the timing is working out like this.

Southern part of Lost Coast is firming up.... I guess the elevation gain/loss is the equivalent of hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back, over a span of about 18 miles. Redwoods. Surf perch. Pig hunting with a 9mm. Cool!

nice day here- low 40's, overcast with just a light precipitation- perfect! 7 miles for Tiny E and I, he found this (coyote kill of yearling fawn) about 50' below the trail- of course he got a big mouthful of nasty deer hair before I could stop him! :rolleyes:

Hit the gym with the trainer today. He reminded me of the best reason to hire a trainer, a good one will push you and have you doiong things you wouldn't do on your own. He got me back into doing box jumps, hadn't done those in over a year. He has a program that seems good, selects a major muscle group to focus on each session and then has a sequence of stuff to go through in a circuit 4X. We'll see if it works.
