R7D68 – Resting. Reviewing. Reviving.

  I find it amusing, I suppose, that I suffered greatly on starting out with P90X. I have gone over my trials, tribulations and my entire journey in a previous post but going back over the last 2 years of home fitness I am amazed at how I blindly ignored my weight, choosing to focus […]

Tags: , , ,

Work gets in the way of life all the time, and when you have to work an 8 hour day, coach a 3 hour class and then go back to work for another 5 hours without so much as a nap break then work affects your workouts too. I am lazy, I admit it. But […]

Finally took a rest day since I was completely exhausted after work. Taking some time to take in the Crossfit games today, go to games.crossfit.com and check out the live feed.

R5D52/3 – Heavy Day and Coffee… And Other Rambling Tangents…

Sunday I did heavy day, including more with the 70lb KB. I took Monday off since it was the Mock Meet for my gymnasts and I was short on time. This week I have to try to stick to the schedule, adding an extra day off is messing me up. I am a little torn […]

So my wonderful wife surprised me with a trip to NYC for my birthday this past weekend so rather than sulk in the basement about my age and work out too hard, we ended up walking around NYC for the best part of 6 hours a day for 4 days. The weather was incredible 62 […]

R4 D63 – Rest Day and Ewwwwwwwwwww

Tags: , , ,

Took a day off, I guess you could have seen it coming after yesterday’s slanted entry. Was welcomed to work this morning by being sent to the single most distasteful piece of fitness dreck that I have seen since the old days when the pedestal girls used to do workouts on City TV while being […]

R4 D50 – Rest Week Part II

Tags: , ,

Since I am not strictly sticking to the 6 days on 1 off routine of P90X or Insanity, I am thinking that a whole week of rest is going to be a little excessive. So since a change is as good as a rest I am thinking that 4 days should suffice and of those […]
