    Nice. In my city of Saco, the public works department first plowed the sidewalk in front of my house, then sent a bulldozer up the street to push back the snowbanks and widen it, thus filling in the sidewalk with heavy slush.

    On my morning chin-up workout I was able to pull myself 3-1/2" higher off the floor than I did last workout. I did several complete partial chin-ups from a 1-1/2" platform with breaks in between. Success is close.

    Then ran a mile.

    • 6 quick sets of 30 pushups this morning. Can't beat an easy, quick workout in your own bedroom!

      • Took twenty minutes to get my 1rm Snatch/Clean and Jerk. I'm stuck on a 95# snatch because I seem to lose the courage to get under the bar right before I lift it... I'll get 100# someday. Then did 5x3 Front Squats at 150#. Good session overall.

          • Hill sprints in a snowstorm. I had to cut the workout short because the ankle deep snow in VFF made my feet a little cool. I walked to and from the hill for 6.5km.

              • Alright, after taking the week off again, the back is feeling better. I'm going to try to stay away from barbells for another week, and stick with circuits, kettlebells, and running. May even try to get another round of p90x in, really did get good results the last time I used it, and it gave my joints a well needed break.

                Today:

                3 mile run.

                Didn't time this one, although I'd have to say I was probably done under 30 minutes. Back feels pretty good.

                      • Well needed rest day. Some active and statistic stretching as my back and shoulders felt tight. Walked to and from work today in the snow. Uphill both ways!

                        • Putting out the recycling.

                          Today's a sick day, spent most of it in bed. Any little task, like the above, became a workout requiring a nap afterwards.
