    Is there any new challenges on the horizon just now (since the kb 10,000 swings is finishing)?

    It would be great if there was a different challenge each month.

    Kettle bell 300 for time, 100 swings with 25kg bell then 5 Turkish getups (each side) with the 12 kg bell - done 3 times (300 swings hence the name). Did it in 25 mins took 5mins off my last time done three weeks ago.

    Followed up with 5 mins of 10 mountain climbers, 5 pushups, 5 pull ups per minute, tried for ten minutes but I am smashed after big week of training.

    Last night I did 1/2 hour of flowing yoga, warmups and 100 reps as per my mad methods site. That was after a fun 2.5hr surf.

    Coming an hour after a dinner including a big piece of salmon (protein), new potatoes (carbs) and sauerkraut.

    12kg kettlebell snatches - five with each hand.

    30 Hindu squats, three sets of ten with 60 secs rest in between.

    16kg kettlebell clean & presses, five with each hand.

    100 20kg two-handed kettlebell swings in four sets of 25, 60 secs rest in between.

    60 secs rest in between each exercise.

    This is a relatively big workout for me, so I'm trying to ease into things. If it works, I may combine some of the exercises into supersets.

    Comments welcome from those with an experienced eye.

    4.3 mi. of fast pace walk on a 2.5% grade incline. This, as an effort to cut back on cardio

    Alright, this was a rough day, but some of the most fun I've had...

    Got up at 7am and "competed" in a 5k on a whim. Did it in 25m flat. Not bad for not running for over a year (just BBS and some swim sprints)

    Walked 5 miles ...bout 3 of them was pushing 70 pounds worth of worn out kiddos in the stroller.

    Spent an hour teaching my five year old how to skip a rock on a lake. Dad is the king....world records may have fallen with the number of skips I made after about 50 or 60 warm up throws.

    All in all it was a good day

    Only one comment.....the more intense my workout the less likely I would be to eat within the vicinity of 4 hours prior to it. Then again I have a long history of working out fasted.

    Another run, another bike ride. Running does not come easy....
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    Good point. I was influenced more than anything by Tim's notes in The 4 Hour Body where he says that protein takes around an hour to get into the bloodstream and if he was to take a protein shake, he'd need to drink it an hour before exercise.

    It didn't feel uncomfortable at the time apart from not being used to the 20kg bell. My legs were aching after and still are today, which isn't unpleasant.
