Personal Best and other stuff.

Last update 4-15-2021: I pulled this off my daily blogs for my routines, to reduce clutter on those pages. The photo above is from a 2019 kayaking trip, Cave Run Lake in Kentucky. Spent 8 hours on the north shore of the lake.

I’m refining this page and correcting some issues but it’s close enough to leave up. Dec through Feb is my off-season so once my events begin firing up, I will not get as many in, so I’m hammering away while I can.

62 miles done, I’m to the left and it was not a timed ride, but just a fun ride with good people.

Data Note 1: There is a note on the blogs and social media posts that show “Pushing: NO” this means that I’m not pushing for low numbers. I don’t cycle/run for speed, looking for consistency throughout the routine.

Data Note 2: I began logging times on this page on 1-13-2021. I’m more focused on how well I’m doing than how far or fast. I monitor my bio-metrics to make sure the sessions are effective. I don’t want this to be me just be running/riding my ass off and screwing up my body. I do not go out every day looking to hit a personal best but will still date each one as it happens moving forward. This begins 1-13-2021 moving forward, even if I had better times before this date.

Running: These are non-stop runs unless I get stuck at a crosswalk, I do not like to stop. I will drop a run routine from my weekly sessions if necessary for recovery. I would rather skip a run than push it and hurt myself, and not be able to run at all.

Bike ride: I’m a grinder; when it comes to my session, I do not stop pedaling. I drop into a lower gear for downhill portions but do my best to maintain my pacing without going too fast. There is not much for hills where I do my weekly workout routine. I want consistent times for the entire routine, but I’m not lazy about how I ride, it’s a very aggressive style that I maintain.



JT water cooler information:

I have a Q&A area on my bio page as well… click here

  • Longest ride to date? 65 miles (104km) Jan-2021
  • Riding in groups? I usually don’t because “normal people” don’t cycle the way I do my sessions. I do enjoy them but have not done many yet. See next billet.
  • Group rides? First-ever was 62 mile (99.7km) Pan Florida Cancer Ride in March 2021. I was paired up with a group, and we would trade off lead positions, so I got to learn a lot on how to group ride. I had been watching videos on how not to be a douchbag when riding in groups, which helped out a lot. When riding solo, I always pretend there is someone next to or behind me for safety reasons.
  • First official pre or post-event ride? High Bridge Trail, Rice, Virginia.
  • Injury or Wrecked? YES, On my Felt Hybrid, I broke my left collar bone. Oct-14-2020, and went down a couple of times learning these damn clip-in peddles.
  • Longest run? 11 miles (17 km) Jan-2021, but I don’t run for distance. I do 10 miles (16km) twice a week but have recently reduced this to (5-miles twice a week) to reduce my cardio.
  • Coldest Ride or Run? Run 24°F ( -4.44°C) Ride 26°F ( –3.33°C)
  • Coldest Hike? 9°F (-12°C) Colorado
  • Rain or shine? I go no matter what.
  • What is your favorite Pre-work drink or shake? Don’t use one; I drink water and control my energy needs through my diet. I don’t drink a lot of water right before a run session but do the day before.
  • How much weight have you lost? This is not about weight loss.
  • How many Calories do you Burn? Take a look; this will give you an idea. JT-Sessions 2k21
  • Longest Kayaking trip? Two days on the Wekiva River. From Kings Landing to St John’s River Debary via Public Boat ramp.
  • Coldest Kayaking trip? 15°F (-9.44 °C) for 8 hours with a daily high of 25°F -3.89 °C
  • Longest Hike? 2019 Grand Canyon South rim spent 3 days there. I went down into the canyon on day 2.
  • I will add some more later…
