Tues Dec 21

Today was a better one - more time to just hang. Watched my wife try on a CuddlyWrap with my newborn. Dang, I am so glad I didn't take pics. I had to leave the room, I was chuckling to myself. Had I continued to watch, I might have ended up being single... I'll see if I can't get the thing around my shoulders and get a pic of my with it on here.

I got up and went for a run .. I'm talking a RUN. 8kms of joy. I finished it in 38 minutes, which I thought was good. I also recorded the best 5k run I've ever done: 23:50. If I run that at the end of the month while on a chip, I'll be impressed.

At the end of the day, I didn't want to go for another run. I'm almost done this rather idiotic attempt to "turn blue". So, I did what I should have been doing for the last little bit:

25 minutes of this routine:

10 40 KB swings
6-8 deadlifts 120 lbs
10 TRX bodyweight rows
10 incline pushups
10 BW squats
10 bicep curls (sorry, had to)

I had wanted to to some other things (SB OH lunges, sledge hammer the tire, tire flip and the like) but lacked space and time to move the vehicles. So, I dealt with what I had. Felt pretty good after.

I ate this today:

breakfast: coffee and juice

Lunch Roast beef wraps; roast beef, green peppers, onion, hot peppers, salad fixins. It was unreal how delicious it was. Water to drink. Just don't let me breathe on you.

Dinner was beef and veggies on rice. Water to drink. Pretty good meal, actually.

I made it out of the local Chapters without hurting anyone. It might have been the fact that I was holding my boy in his carrier, but no one got hurt. Which is good.


  1. Why do you not like doing bicep curls?

  2. Sort of a girly man exercise - really doesn't do anything other than make your arms big ... and not very flexible. Not very good for conditioning/ fitness level idea that I want .... ;) but they sure do look good when asking for the time ... ;0

  3. Anatoli always did bicep curls. Maybe it was just to look good for the ladies.

  4. I recall Anatoli looking good for the ladies at a few tournaments....
