Some Biking Pics and an Afternoon Workout

When I woke up this morning, both my feet ached.  The tops, the bottoms, and the back of my heels.  I guess I woke up those muscles yesterday at the driving range and then walking the golf course, carrying my bag, and hitting awesome drives!  Felt odd, though, that's for sure.

This afternoon we went for a bike ride. We rode hard for the first hour, heading up the trail almost all the way to our little marina town, 20 miles away.  On the way back, we stopped a couple of times to take pictures.  This trail passes throughs suburbs, woodlands and some farmlands, too, and today I just had to stop a couple of times.

After we got back I made us both peanut butter and banana smoothies ... ya gotta try it, and then I did some upper body work while The Captain puttered in the garden. 

I did 3 sets today of 10 of;
  • bicep curls
  • tricep kickbacks
  • lateral raises
  • delt raises
  • overhead presses
  • upright rows
  • pushups
Then I did standing abductor raises for my hips, 20 per leg.

No time to do core work as it was dinner time but I will do it tomorrow after we come back from our round of golf, promise!


  1. What beautiful pictures from your bike ride! I see deer a lot around here but I'm never quick enough to snap a picture!

  2. Those pics are so awesome! I love pumpkin patches, quintessential fall vision :) Also, so cool you spotted a deer and a warthog?
