    we have a rectangular (long and narrow) 2 acre grassy field (with a cluster of oak trees in the middle) right next to our office parking lot.

    Started off with an easy 15 minutes on the stationary bike, and then since it's a beautiful sunny and cool (67 degrees at the time) day, I took my 24kg kettle bell that I keep in our office fitness center outside to the field (along with a 50 lb dumb bell) and carried both weights (Farmer's Walk) around the perimeter of the field 4x. I stopped every quarter lap and did 15 reps of an exercise: KB swings at station 1, push ups at station 2, KB clean and press at station 3, and then KB sumo dead lift high pulls at the last station (thus in total I did 60 reps of each exercise, in between carrying the weights around the fields).
    Striving to live a life extraordinary.

    In the gym today because kid1 in dance, was merely planning a treadmill jog but they were all taken. Instead I kicked my own ass. Made most of it up on the fly. Ive never done the riser sprints before but I liked a LOT. Hard to find a good gym sprint where the machines dont either assist or detract - even the self driven ones get momentum going.

    3 sets alternating pushups and bodyups

    Medicine ball series x4
    10x oblique woodchopper circuits
    10x shovels
    10 slams (3rd set 15 rapid slams)
    walking lunges across room with ball overhead
    standing long jumps back with arrested throw (push away from the chest but dont release)
    5 seconds rest

    Riser sprints. This was fun and hard and moderate impact which I need still . I havent been able to get adequate sprinting on the xtrainer and dont trust my hip to running sprints yet.

    Aerobics step with 2 risers (more if you are tall or fit). Have a large stack of risers near by. up-up-down-down is 1
    On the 1 minute, 20 reps as fast as possible. This means the faster you go the longer you rest.
    Every 3 sets add a riser
    Keep going until you can no longer finish under 30 seconds.

    I actually dont know if I made that last criteria for sure or not. I lost the ability to count to 20 my last 2 sets. That kind of mental confusion HAS to be good!

    Go swimming with child. Sprint up "mountain". Rockclimbing. All my bits are jelly-like now.

    Decided to drop structured training on Wednesday in favor of playing...
    Walked to my 11 year old sons school, walked home and stopped at the park. Ran around aimlessly, climbed a tree, did a bunch of pull ups on the monkey bars, followed by strait bar dips, failed several times at trying muscle ups and settled with jump ups with slow negatives. Then we both practiced ukemi (Judo break falls) in the grass. Apparently we goofed off close to an hour because my 16 year old seen us when he was walking home - got into a "who can swing the highest contest" with both boys then raced home (teenager won - but he wasn't worn out from playing)

    Walked and did some sprints in the local park. Four miles all together in about a hour and 10 minutes. When I got to the parcourse tried a few jumping pullups. Looked for something to try Australian pullups on but nothing fit the bill. Then got back in the car very gingerly because TRX literally kicked my ass yesterday. Rather stiff in the glutes.

    A random assortment...

    With a weight plate:
    Presses, squats, swings, and rows
    Then:
    Pull-ups, chin-ups, lunges
    Romanian deadlift
    and some elliptical action! Pyramid sprints.

    One of my friends (a runner) said to me today, as I was heaving a weight plate around, that I must have strong arms, which I appreciated.
    Than, she went on to say that she goes "more for endurance than..." and trailed off. I wanted to supply "strength" for her, but decided that that would be rude. I felt bad for her cardio queeness, but knew that I'd never be able to convince her that lifting heavy was good.
