I've fallen out with a regular update again...
I kept my workouts light after 10/2 due to a trip I was taking for re-enacting.
Thursday night before heading to bed I went to the hotel's mini gym and did a half hour of cardio work:
light stretching/yoga then onto treadmill.
I jacked up the treadmill to a dead sprint and went for 5 minutes, it ended up that I ran for a mile.
deeper stretching and some more yoga.
seated core press, flys, bench, curls, dips, at 100 pounds x 10 each.
there was a station for leg press or something similar did 5 presses at 100, 110 and 120 pounds.
The workout was fantastic for what I had available.
I took a trip to indiana for a battle re-enactment. Woke up at 7am friday-sunday to the sound of drums...
Each morning I did a set of 50 standing crunches pre breakfast and 50 more after. At breakfast had 3 bowls of steel cut oatmeal some rasins, dark rye bread, and bacon. Had 3 cups of coffee as well.
Friday morning around noon hour-long battle, had to take one of my green-tea pills to settle my stomach.
6 tin-cup fulls of water already at this point.
Lunch had two pork chops and some bread in the village and 2 large cups of lemonade.
the rest of friday was at leizure.
Saturday was the same as friday except there were two hour-long battles. Lunch had two bowls of tea, (I have a wooden bowl that probably has a capacity of 24oz at least)soup for this meal. Had a crossaint and roast beef sandwhich, some veggies and dip for dinner prior to a dance.
Sunday same as above two more hour long battles.
Over the last 6 weeks, I've been going about half an hour away with friends to an outdoor basketball court for 2-3 hours of games. I don't realize it but I am sprinting nearly the whole time so I figure my cardio is improving.
I found out at church today that men's basketball is starting again so I plan on adding that in as well. I will do basketball (cardio) mondays/tuesdays for some time now.
A friend from church offered to work with me on my weight conditioning. He says he has around a thousand pounds of free weights, a squat rack, bench,etc...He mentioned something about an old gas tank filled with cement that weighs around 100+ pounds that he has a cable attached to for a sled. I'll have to start waking early in the mornings if I want to work with him.
Throughout life there are bumps along the way some may be painful...others not...who gives a damn in the end you'll still die
