March 30, 2017

Have you ever done an exercise video that takes you through a workout on a piece of cardio equipment? I hadn’t. I didn’t even know such videos existed! But then I learned about the Daily Burn Max Trainer program, and guess what? It’s pretty cool. Read the rest of this entry »

The Simple Walking Workout That Wore Me Out

March 18, 2017

I don’t give myself a break from exercise after a race. No resting on my laurels here! Instead, I take a rest day on the day before, so I’m ready to go on race morning. That meant I was due for a workout the day after my hour-long stair race in Springfield, and I couldn’t skip it. Yes, I was achy and sore, but I gotta do what I gotta do. I decided to keep it easy and light… until I stepped on a cardio machine that had other ideas. Read the rest of this entry »

July 11, 2016

I’m in Michigan, and I’m staying for a few weeks. I’m able to work remotely, so I’m staying with my parents in my childhood home, and I turned their kitchen table into a temporary office. The other day, I addressed a need I have when I travel: the need to exercise. So… I joined a gym. Read the rest of this entry »


Fun With Maps: I’m 2,000 Miles Away!

December 15, 2015

I’m not actually 2,000 miles away. I’m writing this post in the same room in Los Angeles where I write every other post. But, in my nerd mind, I’m 2,000 miles away! Let me explain.

I track all the miles I complete doing all kinds of cardio, both in the real world and on gym equipment: running, biking, hiking, elliptical, swimming, and so on. I started doing this in the summer of 2013, as a challenge to help me get back in shape after Read the rest of this entry »


A Terribly Awesome Trip Up Jacob’s Ladder

February 18, 2015

Remember the Jacob’s Ladder? Probably not. I’ve only mentioned in once before, in a blog post last May, but it’s a challenging cardio device that’s basically a never-ending ladder. It’s also a Bible story, but that’s a whole different blog post (on a completely different blog).
