About Me

I started this to chronicle our first tandem bike tour. Not sure where it will go from here. I do know that where I go I hope Deborah goes. "Life is not just a destination but a journey. While the expedition can be long and arduous, it can be full of beauty and pleasure as well"

Found myself in a slump

We finished the San Diego Half Marathon on March 11th.  It was a really nice weekend.  We got some time with Jackie Bob and Cori on Friday night then checked into our hotel on Saturday.  We got a room on the 12th floor of the San Diego Hilton Bayfront with a bay view.  We walked across the foot bridge to Petco Park and checked into the race, got our numbers and our tee shirts then walked around.  We met Gary for dinner at a great little tapas place.  It was nice because we have been acquainted with him for years but never met in person.  We had a great time.  The next day was the run.  It was better running with both arms.  Deborah had a calf problem and we were worried she wasn't going to make it but she really stepped up her game.  We knocked 9 minutes off our Big Sur time.  We went back to the hotel, got hot showers, cleaned up and walked over to Dick's for Guinness and food.  We also met Diane, another friend we had never met in person.  She was a lot of fun and it was so nice to meet her face to face.  Dinner was tapas again then back to the room for a bottle of celebratory wine then off to sleep.  Next day we got our free breakfast buffet the drove home.

Now I find myself floating along with no direction and no motivation.  I have things I would like to accomplish but I have not managed to get myself organized.  I need to get in the gym and get my upper body strength back to par.  I want to fly my glider again.  I need to get my garage cleaned, a shed built and my garage door fixed.  Short term, I would really like to get the taxes finished but I am waiting for D to get done organizing her stuff.  I have a turnaround coming up the end of next month and will be out of commission for at least three weeks for that one.

So here is my plan:
Create a list and put on paper what my goals are.
Create another list and put on paper what my desires are.
Create a calender to include a work out program the includes bike, run, and weights.

I'll keep you all posted.
