        • Yesterday was supposed to be a rest day, but I wound up at the gym anyway through a series of serendipitous events. I didn't want to interfere with my recovery from my Stronglifts workout from the day before, so I kinda goofed off and did whatever I felt like doing since I was already there and had the energy, and I ended up getting a pretty good workout. I did tire flips up and down the gym floor (I pretended I was helping to build a shelter), pushed the sled that the football players used (helping to drag a deer back to camp), did a few sprints (running from a bear!), some reverse crunches, sit ups, planks, and lat pulldowns. Today my body's screaming "that hurt so good! Do it again!"

            • I just bought a new Trek Mtn Bike over the weekend! I am enjoying riding it all around on local trails & tackling big hills. Am outfitting it w/ my own customization gear, which I've done for all my other bikes (this is my 3rd, yes I know...) Just got a cool training book, The Power Meter Handbook (for cyclists) & website Free Training Log, Training Plans and Food Diary | TrainingPeaks, to prepare myself for my 6 week Alaska-Canada-Calif Bike Tour this June & July, in which I'll fly one way to Glacier National Park (Gustavus is the town), then bike, & take the occasional ferry boat south til I get back home to NorCal. Am riding almost daily for local commutes & after-work sprints & tackling local hills too, gotta get IN SHAPE for this Alaska trip in 100 days. Still doing my pre-breakfast walks 5-6 mornings a week + Mon,Tues,Thurs,Fri weightlifting & floor exercises.

              • My goal is to do 100 pushups by my birthday in May. I have set up mini-workouts during the day to try to fool my body into thinking I am an active person, rather than a sedentary person who works out. So I do a little workout each hour on the hour.

                6:00 am: 22 pushups, 1 chinup/hang, 3 empty bar squats, 30 jumping jacks, stretch
                7:00 am: 18 pushups, 1 chinup/hang, 3 empty bar squats, 30 jumping jacks, stretch
                8:00 am: 16 pushups, 1 chinup/hang, 3 empty bar squats, 30 jumping jacks, stretch

                So far so good.

                • Burpee ladder. Starting with 10 then 9 then 8... Set a new record time for myself today. I am building up to starting rep of 20 instead of 10.

                  • BW exercises for 25 mins followed by a nice walk for +1 hour in the sun. Glad to get outside during this long winter and enjoy the spectacular weather.

                    • I have a pull-up bar set so I can reach up to it while standing flat on the floor in my bare feet.

                      I had been working on chin-ups by chinning up as high as I can, then holding, followed by pulling up from a progressive series of platforms beyond floor level, created by stacking a series of eight 2x10" blocks. Today I found I am now able to do a full chin-up from every height except standing on the floor. They felt almost easy, but now I am sore. Perhaps I will be able to do that last little bit to reach my goal in the next workout.

                      Then: pull-ups!

                      • Bench press and dead lift, neither of which I have done for 3 weeks. Improved on both.

                          • Did 30 pushups to failure, 12 pullups to failure on a machine that I stand on to compensate for part of my weight (at the exercise facility at work which is a luxury), 16 squats to failure on Smith machine with 50 lbs, and standard plank to failure 1:17, then side planks to failure at 52 seconds each side. Just read an article on the Forum about the efficiency of doing exercise to failure, one set, once to twice a week, and am giving it a shot. Feel pretty uh relaxed right now! Getting ready to stir fry some Bok Choy.

                                My hometown of Scarborough maine, in its ever great concern for my fitness, presented me with this #200 ice boulder at the end of my driveway. It was not alone, but surrounded By 20 satelites.small-ice.jpg
