Training For the Cache Gran Fondo

August 12, 2015

I have a confession to make. When it comes to exercise, I am not the most motivated to keep it up for any length of time, so I decided I need a real purpose to keep me going. I needed to come up with something to train for, and it had to be something I could get excited about.

After much reflection, and consideration of my nonexistent athletic past, I ruled out football, baseball, and basketball; besides, I think 49 is a little too old to start with these. Then it hit me. There is one sport I have always been good at, and I can still do at my age. To this end I have decided to enter the Cache Gran Fondo, in Utah.

For those who have never heard of the Gran Fondo, it is a 100 mile bike race, and in the case of the Cache Gran Fondo, it helps women get breast cancer screenings, so it’s a great cause.

This will take training, sponsors, and a bike, which I have chosen to get a Scott Addict CX, which I don’t have at the moment. Until I do get a bike, I am training at Anytime Fitness. I am thinking of starting an Indiegogo campaign to cover costs, and the entry fee; any amount extra will go directly to the cause of breast cancer.

Anyone wishing to help, let me know in the comments, or by e-mail to allenpbradford@yahoo.com

I will provide a notice when the campaign has started.

This video is an update video on how my fitness levels are changing.  On my videos, I will now start doing more videos with writing and photography, and I will still do fitness videos.  This is all part of complete health training, and reaching full creative potential.

In this video, I discuss the fact that men and women should have different types of workouts.

I also bought 10 pound weights, and a jump rope for the days I exercise at home.
