    Hahaha - Zach, I bet you never thought that going on a sugar crusade on MDA would eventuate in pretty girls pm-ing you body shots! The meanders of life.

      Are you kidding? It was his plan all along. All this sugar has got me pretty riled up.
      Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

          Why do you have to turn? If you're standing in front of a camera, you should be able to set up the shot and walk into the frame. If you're holding a camera in front of a mirror, you can turn to look, hold the camera in place, turn back, and take the shot.

            Thursday, May 16

            Warm-Up:
            1 mile sprint, 5:25. Pull-Ups: 2 unassisted, 1 cheated! Did a handstand, supported by the wall and did 3 baby push-ups on my hands.
            That's a fast mile!

              Oops, you live in Washington, not Oregon. Beautiful pictures, by the way. I won't really have any spectacular pictures either. It would just be my crossfit box and the globo gym I go to. *Sigh* Maybe I'll take some pictures of the park I play at (a very lame one, the only good thing is the swing set) halfway through my long runs.

                  Agreed - and I'm very impressed with your chin up improvements, plus your handstand push ups!!! You would kick my ass girl

                    Yeah, Ci, you are crazy athletic. Making me feel bad!

                    Just kidding. I don't feel bad.

                    Today was.... uneventful. In the world of exercise. I was so busy that all I could do was drop and do a couple sets of pushups throughout the day. And I'm too tired now to do anything else. I walked a bit and did walk to the store to buy my ice cream, but I smoked a Nat Sherman while I was doing it and ate the ice cream while I walked back so I hesitate to call that exercise.

                      Outdoor play / exercise is great! It gives it a real world (ish) application. More than just rote movements, which I find boring and an unsustainable way to keep up the work, at least for me. I wouldn't last very long in a gym.

                      Excellent point. I agree.

                        I took a walk around our local obstacle course/dog park. You guys inspired me to do some outside play! I got on the swingset, did the monkey bars, some pull-ups, jumpy things, balancing beams, and general climbing. The park is also just shy of 1 mile. It was nice to go outdoors and play, although the children were giving me funny looks and "telling me how to do stuff right" lol! I sorta wanna go out there when the sun is setting and there are less children, so that I can romp around as I please!

                        I also heard that they've recently opened up a zip-line obstacle course dealy at a different park near my house. It takes about 2 hours to complete it on average, and seems like a blast, but I've never been! Gonna try to find a friend who'll be down for that!
                        Awesome - pics please!!

                        We should start an adult playground movement - why should those pesky kids have all the fun?

                          Took yesterday off (unless standing on my feet in front of a room of people all day counts?)

                          Fitness 3

                          Play, ABWE,

                          Play
                          Decided to do my warm up / gentle exercise in the park closest to me. This baby is only a 20 sec jog away.



                          Doesn't look like much, but there are hidden treasures...



                          It's a rebounder! (and a death trap). Bounced for two mins.

                          Next up was the tightrope. This is surprisingly tough to do! But today I actually managed to get 3/4s of the way across: further than ever before.



                          And here was where I did my pull-ups.



                          Correction: tried to do my pull-ups.

                          ABWE: Pullups/lever/leg raise

                          Practice:
                          N/a

                          Strength:
                          Jumping pull-ups with reverses. Five w/ hands tucked under, five w/hands tucked over.

                          Accessory:
                          Hanging knee raises: 3 sets: 10; 8; 5.

                          Then for the cool down...




                          About five mins of swinging. Man, I had no idea how much it worked the backs of the legs! You're basically swinging your whole body weight back and forth. Screw those machines at the gym!!

                          Then went home and did pistols; sitting onto low coffee table, 7 each side.

                          SPeaking of the gym: I'm going to cancel my membership. I was holding onto it so I could swim, but the reality is that even if I swim twice a week it's still not worth it.... and I don't like how the chlorine dries out my skin and hair.

                          PLUS, there's actually a free outdoor gym just around the corner from me! I forgot about it. Maybe I'll go there tomorrow...

                            Wowie! I might come to England just for the playgrounds!

                            Yea swimming in Chlorinated pools is pretty gross and the chlorine is bad for your thyroid as well. So wish i lived by an ocean! I do live on the biggest freshwater lake but its unswimmable for like 8 months a year. . Not into polar plunging.

                              I need to crash at your place for a while, Zach, I love ice skating and polar plunging. Nothing like that sudden adrenaline rush and thyroid stimulation from diving into an icy lake.

                                Come on over, baby! Jumping in that lake any time of the year is polar plunging. The water never gets above 50 degrees. Super refreshing in the summer. And yes to ice skating! The harber side of the lake freezes and you can skate for miles.
