    This morning’s run was peak-to-peak, rinse and repeat. There are two hills in the hood we run in, we run from the top of one to the top of the other, turn around and keep repeating until time to go. I got 4.5 miles in 41 minutes and some change.

    Then this evening I got my 100 pushups in.

    Today's workout was tough. Couple of people puked :lol:.

    The strength/metcon was BAD.

    7x3min rounds of: 10 cal sprint on the assault bike, followed by 5 deadlifts at 70-80% of your max. I hit 275 for all 7 rounds and got off the bike in about 12-20 secs each round. It got bad.

    The workout was 40-30-20-10 of barbell lateral lunges(45/35) and pushups, time cap 12:00. I finished in 8:38 or so. Arms and chest are gonna be sore tomorrow.

    Yesterdays workout was a real arm burner but it was fun.

    Strength/Metcon: 5 rounds of 10 unbroken push press(heavy) and 1 min max calorie row(target 20 for guys). I went from 95lbs up to 135lbs over the 5 rounds and held 20, 20, 19, 20, 21 on the calorie row.

    The workout was 3 rounds of 200m medball run(25lbs), "21 set" of hammer curls, and 10 unbroken hang power cleans at 115. I finished in 9:49.

    Cash out was 100 reps with a partner of barbell curls. These got really bad.

    Today's workout looks fun. You can either choose a day to make up from this week or the workout is:

    4x20 heavy walking lunges with a partner

    then:

    10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 of handstand pushups and burpee box jumps with 1 rope climb between each "round"

    I did something I've never done before, went on vacation and actually lost weight. 2 weeks in the Florida heat, toting kids around, playing/running in the sand. I've turned that corner (I think), where I don't eat to get full, but for energy...so I wasn't stuffing my face at every meal. I was kinda worried I'd revert back on vacation, but held steady.

    We went somewhere new today. My wife, son, nephew, myself, and MIL all went for an easy bike ride on the Nuese River Trail. We rode for about 3 hours.

    Well with continued strict lunch plan I'm down to 233. 30 down 30 to go. 5 months progress isn't too bad I think. Now if I could throw in some training I'm sure it would fly off.

    I’ve been eating like crap the past couple weeks and other than the push up challenge I haven’t gotten my exercise in. Today brings the tail end of a week long cold and the motivation to get back to business. Luckily I haven’t gained any weight during this time.

    Ive been hitting the stationary bike every morning this week.
    5 minute warm up then 30 minute blast. Some intemittent hill program and hardest difficulty my cheap ex bike will manage. According to the on board computliar Ive been averaging around 8.8 miles a day.

    Im not going to jinx myself but the weight trend is really nice this week as well.

    I'm pretty sure I've ridden around WWC a few times with the guy in the middle of the blue shirt brigade. Also, that guy 2nd from the left needs a bigger bike!:lol:

    Ha. That's Clint on the left. His bike is an XL which he just got last week. It doesn't come any larger. It was funny to see him catching tree limbs with his helmet. :)

    The guy in the middle is Andy. He rides MX as well. Really nice guy and was the first to buy a bike from us last fall.

    First run in a couple weeks due to plantar fasciitis pain.
    I’ll get my 100 pushups in after work.
