Personal Best and other stuff.

Last update 1-22-2022: I pulled this off my chapter postings, to reduce clutter on those pages. The photo above is from a 2019 kayaking trip, Cave Run Lake in Kentucky. I spent 8hrs on the North shore of the lake back in 2019, would like to go back again was a great location.

2021 62 miles done, I’m to the left and it was not a timed ride, but just a fun ride with good people.
1-2-22 a great day with good people my 1st ever event 😃

Event One : 1-2-2022 My first official Timed event: New Year New Me 5k Orlando Florida 4801 W. Colonial Dr. Orlando, FL 32808: These are the official numbers as per the event website. 21st overall in a field of 270 runners, 17th in the men’s group of 113, and 4th in the master’s group of 64 and took the number #1 spot in my age group. I have only been running one year, and this was my very official timed event of any kind. Finished the event at 22:04 for the 5k, I’m very happy with my day! Three personal best 2mile/1mile/ Half-mile. Got a second-best 400m and 1k. Shoes are worn for the event Hoka One One Carbon x2

Event Two: 1-22-2022 My 2nd official Timed event: Florida fastest 5k Presented by Kroger. Jan 22, 7:30 AM EST Lake Louisa State Park, 7305 US 27 Clermont, FL US 34714 Shoes worn for this event Saucony Endorphin Pro 2

Data Note 1: On my postings “Pushing: NO” this means that I’m not pushing the session for low numbers, working for consistency.

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 began on 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, and do not stop pedaling. I drop into a lower gear for downhill portions doing my best to maintain my pacing without going too fast. There is not much for hills where I do my weekly workout routine, so the hill assist is minor. Wanting consistent times for the entire way, and not casual about how I ride; it’s an aggressive riding style. I’m now using a Specialized Tri Bike starting out in 2022. The Felt Hybrid dominated 2021 after my Carbon Fiber Super Six Cannondale was destroyed after being rear-ended coming out of Virginia 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.
  • 60k walk 7-17-21 (Palm Coast Florida)
  • How much weight have you lost? – This is not about weight loss and it only gets checked on the 1st of month. 74 pounds. (33.5kg) or 5.2 stones. (January 1st 2022)
  • Longest workout duration 10:31:37 July 17th 2021 68k step walking session Florida (see walk story)
  • 60K Walk Story
  • 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 (25.05km)Dec 29th 2021, Florida I do a 20k once a month🆕
  • Longest cycling distance in a single day 119.33km December 25th 2021🆕
  • Fastest Speed Cycling 68.39 kph (42.8mph) June 21st 2021 Atlanta Georgia
  • Highest elevation gain Walking in one session 703m July 11th 2021 Shenandoah National park 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 I 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 whne 1st learning clip-in peddles. On 12-25-21 when I over corrected, hit some leaves and went down – right shoulder torn muscle.
  • 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? go no matter what.
  • What is your favorite pre-work drink or shake? Don’t use them, drink water and control my energy needs through my diet.
  • How many Calories do you Burn? It varies, but 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. My mom dropped me off and picked me up.
  • 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, 14miles plus counting the trip back up. I was a lot heavier back then, so I’m hoping to get back at my new fitness level. Zion national Park Angels Landing is right there with it because both amazing places.
