Fitness Update

Well, I haven’t lost any weight. But I’m not particularly concerned about it just yet. The reason is that I feel like I have been taking care of myself physically. Peter-man and I have been doing daily push-ups, and we had a contest on Sunday to see who could do the most in one day. […]

Early Motivation

After my monster workout a couple of days ago, I am finding it hard to muster up motivation to work out. I think I need two things to succeed: – no hangovers. Hard to avoid on New Year’s Day, even though I didn’t drink much on NYE. – early to bed, early to rise. Mags […]

Cliche Fitness in the New Year

Our honeymoon is over and so is the holiday visit to the East Coast. In between the two I got some form of the flu that was one of the worst illnesses I have had. It lasted about a week. With all of this comes a few extra pounds and also some restlessness – the […]

Project Tuxedo!

So as y’all probably know via word-of-mouth, email, Twitter, Facebook, or otherwise, Mags and I are getting married. I’ve decided to buy a tuxedo for the occasion rather than rent one. And I’d like to lose some weight for the wedding. So if I want to buy the tuxedo sooner rather than later, I’d better […]

Time for Another Turbo Diet and Exercise Program!

So I officially gained about ten pounds in maybe a little over a month. Unacceptable. It’s time for another turbo diet and exercise program! This one is for serious. By the end of it I want to be “carved out of wood,” as señor Peter so aptly put it (as also heard in Fight Club). […]

What I’ve Been Up To

I’ve been neglecting this blog a bit lately. I’ve basically been busy as hell lately, and I suppose the blog has taken a back seat. So this post will be a rambling one bordering on stream of consciousness. So grab a cup of your favorite hot, cold or lukewarm beverage, get someone to rub your […]

Took a Nasty Spill

I was having a great bike ride this morning from my apartment to SFSU and back. It looks like it will take about 40 minutes each way. On the way back, I was going eastbound on Market Street, wanting to go left onto 7th St. So I started to get over. I tried to go […]

What Time to Go Running

Recently I have changed my routine a bit and done short runs in the morning and long runs after work. I have noticed that I run much better in the later parts of the day, hence the short runs in the morning. One other thing I noticed is that when I run in the morning, […]

As Running Relates

One of the great things about running is that the further out you go, the further you have to come back. It is a commitment you can’t get out of. I have realized this for a while but it hit home yesterday when I did a 10-miler, the longest run I have ever done. I […]
