Personal Best and other stuff.

Last update 11-14-2021: 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 do not really pay much attention to data by miles anymore, I use kilometers since the rest of the world using them for running and riding.

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

  • I don’t stop a constant run

Data Note 1: A note on my postings shows “Pushing: NO” this means that I’m not pushing for low numbers. I don’t cycle/run for speed, because consistency throughout the routine is more important.

Data Note 2: I began logging these times on 1-13-2021. I’m more focused on how well rather 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, even if I had better a time before this date.

Running: These are non-stop runs unless I get stuck at a crosswalk, but I do not like to stop. I have isolated an area of a local trail where crosswalks are not really a big deal anymore. 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. It is not much for hills where I do my weekly workout routine, so the hill assist is minor. I want consistent times for the entire way, but I’m not lazy about how I ride; it’s a very aggressive style that I maintain. I’m now using a felt hybrid because my Carbkn Fiber Super Six Cannondale was destroyed when I was rear-ended in Virginia in April 2021.

JT stuff I have been asked:

I have another Q&A area on my bio page … click here

  • Most steps in a single day 68,540 July 17th 2021 *65,706 were from a single workout session. 50k walk (Palm Coast Florida)
  • How much weight have you lost? This is not about weight loss and only checked the 1st of each month. 68 pounds. (30.8kg) or 4.8 stones. (August 1st 2021)
  • Longest workout duration 10:31:37 July 17th 2021 68k steps Florida (see above)
  • Most calories burned in a single day 4,404 July 17th 2021 Florida
  • Most floors in a single day 154 floors. July 27th 2021 Shenandoah National Park hiking session Virginia
  • Longest run? 12.5miles (20 km) June 17th 2021. Maryland
  • Longest cycling distance in a single day 105.39km December 29th 2020
  • Fastest Speed Cycling 68.39 kph (42.8mph) June 21st 2021 Georgia
  • Highest elevation gain Walking in one session 703m July 11th 2021
  • Highest Elevation gain Cycling in one session 625m June 21st 2021
  • Toughest Event(s): SDBA 2020 Crossville Tennessee, was working the event with a broken left collar bone. I broke it the week before the event. AHDRA June 2021 is a close second because I have jaw surgery two days before this event and battling pain and an infection all the weekend. XDA Virginia Motorsports park May 2021 was tough but for other reasons and will leave that right there.
  • Riding in groups? I usually don’t because “normal people” don’t cycle the way I do but enjoy them … 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 cycling ride? High Bridge Trail State Park, Rice, Virginia. 2020
  • Injury or Wrecked? YES, on my Felt Hybrid, I broke my left collar bone Oct-14-2020, but also went down a couple of times learning the damn clip-in peddles.
  • 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 many Calories do you Burn? month in review click here ->JT-Sessions 2k21
  • Longest Kayaking trip? Three 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 eight hours with a daily high of 25°F -3.89 °c
  • Favorite Trip: Tough choice but have to say Grand Canyon South Rim 2019. On day two when I went down into the canyon for about seven miles 14 plus counting the trip back up. I was a lot heavier back then, so I am hoping to get back at my new fitness level.
