I be crushin' it!
11.13 miles on my bike yesterday evening.
40 laps in 70 minutes in the pool this morning! I know that's not particularly fast, but it's under 2 minutes per lap, which is a vast improvement from where I started.
AND I lost another pound... Read more

Why do Mondays suck so much?

Life is Messy
Last week: health scare. Not quite over, follow-up with cardiologist in June and then maybe I can get back to normal exercise routine. Actually, any exercise routine would be great.

"Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth." John F. Kennedy
Quite a quote just for leg day, eh? But it speaks to me about challenging myself by doing what needs to be done. And today, what needs to be done is leg day.
I did all the exercises on my list today, so that's an improvement over last week'... Read more
