      • What do you do for upper body. This looks like a great lower body day I may have to steal it from you![SIGPIC]


        • Upper body is divided up into 4 days (sometimes 3), and rotates on a 4 week schedule. It'd be a very long post, but I'd be happy to send it as a message if you're interested.


          • If you don't mind the time that would be great! I'm feeling a bit lost with my workouts ATM!

                        • Climbing down a granite ledge 20' down to tie rope to deer taken with my bow, back up the ledge to haul up with a rope, cleaned the deer, then carted it out on friends cart hauler.
                          You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes


                          • Today was sprints/intervals on the bike. I've had a splitting headache all afternoon/evening, but today just sucked it up and completely and utterly killed the interval workout today. Not sure how/why, but I absolutely hammered it today. Still have the headache though.


                            • Today was gardening. 3 hours of mixed light and heavy work. I was cutting up, crashing up and carrying away an inch thick, more than human height dahlias - it was quite a year for dahlias and normally I wait for the first frost to soften them up, but the forcast looks like 'warm going into a sudden snow storm' so I started on them. Got about dozen of the plants, about half of them... Well, that, digging up the tubers and carrying the endless bags of the leaves and stems made a good enough moving slowly!

                              When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.


                              • 0-3, another loss, but our best game yet; dropped 5 points, 1 swat, some boards, good pick (i set good picks now that i've been squatting),

                                and a lot of running jumping, some sprints, some light jog; basketball is the best for overall the fitness, oh yea.
