Bane, I was doing the same thing... I was thinking of doing it for the rest of the week. Pushups on Sunday, Pullups on Monday, rested for traveling, probably will do shoulder presses tomorrow. Better than nothing, right? ;-)
Gini (do you pronounce that Gee-Nee?) I was around southern Maine, close to Brunswick/Bath/Portland...
Today was ~60min of trail riding back in Fla... I miss Maine :-(
Was wondering about the shoulder press BW exercise... Are the elbows severely flared? Like you're doing a bench press, just, upside-down? I tried it against the wall and it was very difficult. Awesome :-)
This evening I dragged two horses down the road to my mailbox and back up: 3 miles of up and down hills.
Yes, I actually did; instead of a regular evening walk (as I'm just starting to go Primal), I added in intervals of running and forced my 2 geldings to run with me. I actually think they go into it by the 5th or 6th interval and I didn't have to drag them quite so much (course one or two spanks with the end of my lead rope convinced Mr Pokey to speed up and that was that). Now I'm no runner (can't stand the impact) but these actually felt good. I'm sure my hamstrings will be talking to me tomorrow but that's OK - the whole neighborhood thinks I'm a fitness god now.
Thursday: biking + Climbing

750 meter swim. It took just under 30 minutes. Next week I'll do 800.
I think I've found what I'm looking for. A good workout that I enjoy. This will also improve with synaptics.
Genie.... Cute :-)

Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!
For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.
