After work work-outs...

Yesterday was my first attempt at documenting my after work work-outs. I am planning on doing a serious of short little webisodes that documents my attempts at including fitness in my now hectic life. The filming actually went really well and I was surprised that everything went smoothly. The only hang up is I filmed everything on my iPhone vertically, so those two black bars show up on the sides of the video. Kind of a bummer, but I think I will still put it together and show it in a while, every first attempt at something isn't always perfect right?

I was able to piece together a nice bike ride. It did feel rushed and I was not really feeling it after the long commute home from work. But once I got out on the trail it felt great! I put in about 12 miles and I am starting to get more comfortable on my bike. Who knows maybe a triathlon may be in my future...but I am not signing up for anything quite just yet!

Last Monday I had the pleasure of having Eric visit me in Seattle on his way up to Alaska. He rented a bike and we hopped on the Burke-Gilman trail and headed north to the Red Hook Brewery in Woodinville. It was a great ride on a sunny day!

Once we got to the brewery we were ready to eat. The food was tasty and I enjoyed my latest discovery, sparkling water! Yeah I know not that exciting but it has been really enjoyable for me as an alternative to soda.

Eric had a pint of Red Hooks finest and we loaded up and headed back. Overall a great visit and a great bike ride. On a side note we did run into some issues with the rental bike. The chain kept popping off! I tell ya it would of made for a great drinking game if we had some booze cause it seemed to pop off every time we thought that it was the end though it was great for a laugh and we had a amazing time!

So it has been a while since we have posted. I recently bought a house and started a new job in Seattle. Eric had some time off work and now has returned to Alaska. This video sums up my intentions for the blog, lets hope Eric continues to contribute (and be able to stream the video in Alaska)! Ed
