Old Guy Rec & Fitness

Coming soon - a page devoted to optimizing recreation and fitness to combat the effects of aging. I’ll cover strength, endurance, balance, speed and more. For the past year or so I’ve been very specific in my training and have been pleased with the results. I’ve mentioned this to several friends during rides and trail work days. I have now completed enough research and have enough material to share with my entire B2R audience.  (Image from "[Deux meres.] Uncle Chesterton's Heir ... Translated by Henry Frith.

3F79 ‘18

I modified 3F79 last year to try and accommodate my new schedule. 3F79 ‘17 was a dismal failure. So for 2018 I’m reverting to the original concept of 3F79: starting the first Friday in February (the 3F part) I’ll ride for 79 consecutive days (the 79 part, chosen to honor my father’s memory; he was 79 when he passed away), an hour on the bike each day. I welcome others on these rides, many of which will be HICK Rides because I really love riding my Fuji Jari gravel bike. I’ll also do plenty of road and MTB rides. I started doing 3F79 so I’d be in shape when the regular riding season begins. Points to keep in mind: I’ll post notes of upcoming rides and reviews of some rides on my Facebook page HICK is defined and trademark notice given on the Legal page Conditions riders must agree to accept are also on the Legal page Friends and acquaintances know I abandoned goal-setting in August of last year and am enjoying living in reactive rather than proactive mode. But an hour a day for 79 days feels like a goal so I guess I’m indulging myself with one. Unlike previous 3F79 sessions, however, I have no goals within the plan. No goals for mileage, number of states ridden, feet of climbing. Nothing. I could say “having fun” is a goal for 3F79, but that’s unnecessary. On these rides, fun just happens. (Photo from 3F79 ‘13.)
