Get out of the way cause I'm on a roll. Added a mild 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill before the lifting. It really loosened me up. As a result, the pull-ups were easier. Overall, the lifting went well. The 40-minute ab workout continued t... Read more

It was a very productive week. My biking went well. However, today I planned on an 80-miler but had to stop at 65 miles. The temperatures kept climbing into the 90's and my body was not reacting well to it. I thought that perhaps I should listen... Read more
