Friday report and team update

Friday, November 09, 2012

Today is my 556th consecutive day of cardio.

It's been a busy week (what else is new!) but of course I got my workouts done.

The other day I got an email asking why I had joined a team for new members, specifically new members joining during the week of 11-11 to 11-17. I was asked to be one of the group moderators for those who join during the upcoming week and I said something like, "Sure, I'll be glad to do it." At the time I was multitasking, of course. I believe I was on the highway at 70+ mph, entering information into a Smartphone.

No need for concern, I wasn't driving. I wonder sometimes if a tablet wouldn't be more practical than a smartphone for doing work, as I hate re-typing all those mistakes from hitting the wrong keys on such a small touch board. (some of you may remember how much I really do not like laptops, but I'm starting to warm to the tablet idea).

Anyway, the new group starts Sunday and I've still got to come up with a picture or logo for the group. Any suggestions?

For the past week, my workouts looked like:

At least three days per week:

Bench Press - 6 sets of 15 to 20 reps
Crunches - 6 sets of 35 reps

Tricep Dips - 6 sets of 20 reps
Seated Leg extensions - 6 sets of 25 reps

Bicep curls - 6 sets of 20 reps
Squats - 6 sets of 20 reps

1 minute sprints (raise HR to approx 150), 12 sets
rest between sets
forward stretch one minute (touch the floor) , 6 sets
standing quad stretch 30 seconds each leg , 6 sets

The other days of the week I'm doing 3 sets of pushups, crunches, squats, and dips along with the 12 sets of sprints

The Jog/Walk Across America team stats (we're about 100 miles from completion of the journey and if a couple of team members enter the last few weeks' worth of activity, we'll find we're already there):
Team distance as of Friday 9Nov: 3950
100 + Miles Remain

    I've seen a few people at the NaNoWriMo write-ins who have tables and bluetooth keyboards to go with them. More portable than a laptop but the tactile feedback of a keyboard.

    Now they have these new laptops that convert to a tablet and vice versa -- they're called hybrids. I think the HP Envy line has one.

    Hi. Your blog caught my attention today. I'm one of the Across America team leaders.

    You shared the link http://goo.gl/maps/4s9u --- who/what is this team, how big is your team, and are they all on Spark?

    Did you know there is a progress thread on the group page? You are missing out on Goodie Prizes!

    I must say I'm glad you weren't driving with all that cell phone typing going on!!

    I don't know how you do it - but you always manage to get everything into the day. What an inspiration!!

    I have thought about replacing my computer with a tablet. Way to go on maintaining your workouts.
