Hike - Railroad Track @ Asti with Katie (out and back)
I have had a couple of strong workout the last couple of days, so I took it easy today with a hike along the old railroad tracks at Asti, Ca.

I hadn't been down there for a long time, but in the past it was always a fun (but short) hike in the Fall because of the changing colors in the vineyards, oaks, walnuts and cottonwood trees. It's still a little early for the Fall colors, but Katie had a good time jumping deer and flushing quail and I came upon plenty of interesting stuff.

Time: 00:42:00

At the crossing at Old School House Road.

The farm workers got their own little cacti/squash garden going.

Well, a pretty lame month as far as work-outs goes. With my father's health challenges, Summer temps over 100 degrees (which means too much cold beer), and too many work hours, I bailed on fitness this month.

I've enjoyed the break, but back to it Sept. 1.

Cycling/Road Bike - Dry Creek Valley Loop
From Yoakim Bridge Stop sign on Dry Creek Road, to West Side Road, to Mill St. in Healdsburg, along the frontage road to Dry Creek Road, back to truck.

When I got to Mill St. off West Side Road, I merged into a bike race. No problem, I was riding faster then most of the racers, so I just join the race. When we got to Canyon Road, the race course turned right onto Canyon Road, I stayed on Dry Creek Road and headed back to my truck.

This was a fun ride. I'll start from home next time which will add about 15 miles to the ride.

Sandbag Construction
I used 2 nylon weave sandbag that one can buy at Home Depot filled with 25# of play sand. I double bagged them and put both inside this medium size generic duffel bag. The pig ears are just wraps taking up the extra space and makes the bag tighter. I can fit another 25# bag, maybe two, in the duffel when I want. The handles are taped together to keep them from flapping around.

Slosh Pipe
I put together a Slosh Pipe today.
It cost about $40.00, which is about $20.00 more then it should have, but our local ACE
Hardware didn't carry 4" PVC so I used ABS pipe and fittings. After gathering all the materials, it took about 15 minutes to put the whole thing together.
This, plus some PVC cement and water is about all you need


At 34 lbs., getting it overhead isn't the issue

About the time you think it's stable, the water sloshes and it takes everything you have to keep it from going to the ground

Ab Wheel
About a month ago I saw this Ab Wheel at a reduced price on the internet. I'd been considering giving one of these a try for awhile, so I bought it.


When it arrived, it was a lot smaller then it had appeared on the web-site. For $10.00, I wasn't going to sent it back, so I started using it.

It works OK, but I wanted something more burly. Enter the Wheel Barrow tire!
This thing has been kicking around the yard for a few years. I didn't want to throw it away thinking I would use it someday for something. I cleaned it up, put a new rod through it and put on some handles. I made the handles a little long because someday I might want to put stirrups on them to use this thing with my feet.


DISCLAIMER: I have never had any formal workout or fitness training instruction. Everything I have learned has been self taught, self motivated, learned from trial and error, or picked up from books or the internet. Because of this, some of the words or phrases I use might not be the correct terms used by "professionals".
The logs listed on this site are workouts I have put together for myself. They are not meant as examples to teach others, but only as a way for me to track my own progression.

Thanks for viewing.
