Greg Johnson – Personal Update 201705


Personal Update 201705 | 21 May 2017 | Sunday


I hope you’re doing well. Thanks for taking a moment to read my latest update.

Fitness Program

Over the past 30 days, I’ve lifted a cumulative total of over 140,000 pounds with my weight lifting and strength training program. In the coming month I hope to improve on that by increasing the weights, reps, and sets. In the same period of time, I’ve ridden my bicycle over 180 miles on trails in the Iowa City area as part of the trails project I’m working on.

Cycling, Trails, and Scenic Tour Project

Over the past month I’ve been working on the scenic tour and bike ride of the Iowa City, Coralville, and North Liberty area that will emphasize a variety of themes including: local trails, parks, photography, bike shops, coffee houses, restaurants, local craft breweries, architecture, neighborhood restaurants, walkable communities, health and fitness, housing centers, area art, and more.

The tour will include the most beautiful scenic trails in the area, connected up with stops along the way to support local businesses. I’m combining my trail riding project with the technology consulting I do. So, each day I get a good bike ride in, while enjoying local trails, and visiting my various tech support customers in the area. I’ll post more on this in the future, but wanted to share this initial announcement to solicit any suggestions you have for what the local ride should include.


Each week I post some of my favorite photos from the week in a series of weekly Featured Photos. In recent weeks, these photos have all been taken with my iPhone 7 Plus. I still have some recent photos that need posting, but I’m getting caught up.


Many thanks to all of you who keep in touch and provide support for the work I do.
