Last Update: 12-20-2021: ** My 45min morning home routine, calories burn numbers are NOT calculated into the ones to show below, since I don’t track them for my morning sessions.
I do not use energy drinks or energy supplements and don’t see the need since I’m not competing in races. I want to hit my numbers naturally. I may consider it if I start competing regularly but would only do so for the event itself.
September and October 2020 – was not using the fitness watch for these months.

🗒 March is when my events begin, so to see my numbers drop is normal. The larger drop begins in May when the season really gets going and I’m traveling a lot more.
NOTE: Due to reaching Part One of my fitness goal, I’m redefining the weekly workout beginning April 5th, 2021. My old routine was classified as over-training, but it was intentional. This approach will not work for the next level of my journey and long-term sustainability. As of 4-5-2021: my weekly routine is listed below, but it may get bumped around as our events come into play. My day starts at 4:45 am … The following is a general rule of thumb but can change depending on my event scheduling and what rest my body needs to recover.
Saturday Sunday: Complete Rest day fun day – Walk, fishing, kayaking, yard sales or working on art (stay off computer)
Monday Through Friday 45 minutes workout at home before doing 3 cycling session two Run sessions then swap 3/2 week to week. Events do impact my ability to do my sessions.
Cycling Goals: all km-splits 00:02:10 or less and keep the 30k under 1hr. 36km minimum (12-20-21)
Run Goals: 30 minutes Minimum, all km-splits 00:04:59 or less, and the 6k portion under 30 minutes
Daily Walk: cool down walks rang from 30 minutes to minimum of 6k steps
I’m doing this solely for myself and started with a cheap 2008 Boulder Giant mountain bike. I got it just to take to my events, but it morphed into all this. I enjoy cycling the most, so everything is being used to support cycling and my overall health. This is not about weight loss for me; it’s about making myself stronger for the life that is still in front of me.
To see my personal best, 👈 click here. I sometimes get behind updating it. For the record, before starting all this, I never worked out or exercised. I’m proud of myself for the progress I’ve made since October 2020. I officially started in September but got serious in October when I also changed my diet but for those that are curious, I have lost 74 lbs, 134.4kg, or 4.57 stones, as of 12-1-2021. For the record, I only weigh myself once a month.
Cycling 36k Each session is made up of 36 Kilometer Splits (km-split). I want each one below 00:02:20 with the heart in the 145 to 155 range. I also want to drive as many km-splits as low as possible. That number is 00:1:59 or less, but I want to do it throughout the routine. I don’t want low times on the first half then crap times on the back half. I would rather have a consistent full session than just a couple of fast km-splits. Speed will come as I get stronger and better at routine management. Metric data is how to save, compare, and evaluate my progress.
Running 6k: I need to reduce my cardio levels, so in March 2021, the run distance was lowered from 16km to 6k per session. I did not start running until after I broke my collarbone in October of 2020. I have some issues that come with my age/life that prevent me from truly going all out. So I’m making sure my form is right and that I’m strengthening up properly, and the speed does not really matter because it is more about fitness than some SELF-EGO prize. The new goal is that I want each kilometer split to be less than 00:04:59 and the session to be under 30 minutes.
Here is a sample of what it was like during a month with JT. There is a reasoning for all this and it is to hit a personal goal. The goal is set in two parts getting healthy is the first part of the goal. On 3-4-2021 I achieved part one, now it is time to move to part two. I’m not counting any cool-down rides and walks, but the (DAB) Daily Activity Burn will include burn data because my watch saves it activity calories. I do not datalog my morning exercise session.
