    Well, a couple of weeks ago, I quit the gym, that myself and my family had used for 19 yrs. We joined a nicer one, that cost less, offered much more, and was closer.

    Today's Workout
    15 minutes on the Rotating Stairs machine(this one I hate)
    45 minutes Elliptical machine
    Full Back workout

    Getting my Harley home in one piece after it threw the drive belt. One of the tensioners broke! I discovered the axle nut was loose too. First time I didn't get it tight enuff! That bike is a pain to push. Lucky I called a friend with a trailer who saved the day. Sat on roadside for over 2 hours! The belt was not loose!

    New parts ordered....the drive belt got chewed up so, new one costs $250. I am replacing both adjusters (tensioners)

    No lunch at the Italian restaurant (where I was heading).

    I am lucky the wheel didn't lock up. I was rolling at about 55mph.

    No riding for about 10 days or so....takes 10 days to get the parts.

    I tried pushing the bike a bit and it wiped me out! 600 pound bike.

    My workout is probably more extensive than most.
    I typed it out and it looked pretty long.
    I'll PM you with the routine.

    All the other bikes I have ever had used a castellated nut and a cotter pin on the axle. Harley uses an "E" ring that simply keeps the nut from falling off. Harleys vibrate so, not a good idea obviously.

    A friend and I met up for a bike ride. I was on my road bike, he was on his mountain bike. Turned out that my road bike is a pretty good "gravel" and off road cruiser. I rode about 17 miles and we enjoyed the scenery.

    Just an easy 4 mile walk, after work. Of course it was 93° and humid.

    Just did my regular workout. Elbow's healing, so was able to increase my curl weight to 35 lbs. 50 is still a ways off, I'm afraid... I don't heal as fast as I used to.

    Up at 3am, out the door at 3:40, 380 mile trip back to NJ after visiting Mom in Maine.
    Currently in Mass.

    Tell me a 7 hour drive thru/around Boston, NYC, and North Jersey isn't at least a MENTAL workout! :shocked029:

    I've commuted in Boston many years ago. Jamaica Plain out to Harvard area. Three traffic circles. Most insane drivers ANYWHERE! I learned that if you're crazy-aggressive, then it all actually works pretty well! Timid drivers cause accidents, and hesitation will get you rear-ended. You just have to remember to change your mentality when it's NOT commuting time. Once I cracked the code, the daily commute through Boston was fine. At least the driving gets calm and relaxed after you hit Topsfield/Danvers area and head North to NH and Maine...

    I take 495 around the city, so it isn't too bad.
    The Garden State Parkway and the Cuomo bridge, while still a madhouse, is better than 95 and up and over the G.W.

    Standard workout day for me. Same one I pm'd Itchy Whiskers about in detail... here's a summary in case other workout addicts are in the forum:
    - chinups (4 sets of 30, different grip each set)
    - delts (3 different exercises, flys to back, straight up, and forward, 3 sets of each, 25 lb dumbbells)
    - Bicep curls (35 lbs working back up to 50 after an injury, 10 reps, 3 sets)
    - Tricep pulldowns (3 sets 10 reps 50lbs)
    - 75 leg lifts with a kick
    - 125 situps (alternating straight, left twist, right twist, to hit the obliques)
    - And finish with a half hour on an elliptical machine (cardio program) while watching old westerns on TV... and sweating like an oldie.
