2019 in review

Here is my 2019 in review. I posted photos that are meaningful to me. The first one is collage of “friend” photos.

Here is the “where” (many of the “wheres” anyway)










The TBK Bank Quad Cities Marathon




Embarrassed but still trying

To the Riverplex via a 2.5 mile segment and 7.6 home. It was windy going out. On the way back a young person smiled at me and said “great job”…I think that I was losing steam. And I KNOW I looked terrible. But I smiled and said “thank you.” My yoga teacher upped the ante in class…gave us a flowing, high energy, lots of plank/side plank movements. And my knees…side block is easy..not *quite* to sitting on one flat yoga block.

Weight: 186…getting there.

Moving right along

Just a workout catch up: Monday: weights only. rotator cuff, pull ups (5 sets of 10, one of 5), bench: 10 x 135, 3 x 185, 7 x 165, military: 8 x 50 standing, 15 x 50 seated (supported), 10 x 90 machine, rows: 3 sets of 10 x 50 each arm, goblet squats (sets of 6: free, 25, 50, 62 to the sill), planks, knee stretches, etc. Knee: start with the 4 lb. ball.

I ran to and from yoga class, taking the long way home.

I am calling this 10, as I did a couple of unintentional out and backs (on Cooper, and again in upper Glenn Oak Park).  Yeah, it was slow; 1:30 on the way back or something to that effect.  the 2.5 miles there took about 30 minutes.
I was able to knee on the yoga blocks which were stacked on their side.
