Workout for Wednesday, 10 April






Up at 0430.  Knocked out pushups on the balcony and a 40-minute  trainer ride on the bike.  I snapped a screenshot of a different page of the pushup app because this one actually shows the rest intervals.

On this workout I used NO EXTRA REST TIME and I knocked out the final set of 60 without coming out of the front leaning rest.   Felt really good.  Breaking the lead in sets in half makes the fatigue much more manageable compared to the workout on Monday.

I also finally pulled my mountain bike out of the closet (covered in cobwebs and with two completely flat tires).  It’s all polished up, lubricated, pumped and ready to go.  Next week I’m going to start sneaking out after work and hitting the mountain bike track near my office on Thursdays. If I don’t post next Friday, send help.

Workout for Thursday, 31 January

Short, 30-minute jog today in the Five Fingers.  My feet and calves are feeling it.  I am not as used to running in those things as I was four months ago.

I really, really, REALLY can’t wait until I live somewhere that has more than one viable running route available from my place of residence.  I am getting extraordinarily tired of the scenery and traffic on my current route.

But, the more exciting note for today is this:


That’s right.  I did a pushup.  More precisely, I did 80 pushups in five sets, separated by a minute.  One of these days I’ll do a post just about the app that is shown above, but suffice it to say (for now) that today was the first day of my quest for 100 consecutive pushups.

Which is the first day of my renewed quest for the 375.  Pushups and pushup motivation are the big rock to be crushed in this equation (shhh, don’t think about the metaphor, just keep going, it’s okay) so for now, I’m going to start doing pushups.  Saturday, I’ll be doing 100 of them (not consecutively).
