Tues: walk around downtown half hour at lunch. Walk around local college trail after work in higher low level range ~45 min.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

Wall Ball -- 10 times with a 15-pound medicine ball
Do 10 sets each, alternating. No rest.
Take a break then:
Box Jumps -- 10 times
Medicine Ball Slams -- 10 times
10 sets each, alternating. No rest.
Will need to sub out box jumps fora different exercise. While box jumping, something behind my right knee popped and it's stiff and sore. Iced it down. Having trouble walking DOWN stairs. Googled Box Jump Injuries and found out that at my age, I shouldn't be doing 'em. Would rather sprint anyway. Anyone have similar problems? I jump up and step down gently.
Finished off with a:
30-Seconds Kettlebell Swing Left
30-Seconds Kettlebell Swing Right
Rest One Minute
30-Seconds Kettlebell Snatch Left
30-Seconds Kettlebell Snatch Right
Rest One Minute
Then Do It All Again and Again . . . for 20 Minutes.
One other very important thing that I forgot to mention is I train with VFFs, and for a workout involving jumps, I should not have used them. This may not sound primal but shoe cushioning matters in jumping exercises and basketball. I blame bad judgment on my part. Perhaps I can prevent others from suffering these kinds of injuries.
I do all my jumping/plyometric training barefoot or in my FiveFingers as well... I think it gives me a much better bounce.

Phew! I forgot how good it felt to do a workout..Haven't done one in a week! I'm always nervous to do them in a fasted state (CW says you will pass out, etc), but I don't find that my performance suffers much at all.
