Day 702 - Chest + Back + Balance

Right now my typical weekly flow has been to split this workout across two days while I'm ramping back up on workouts, but I'm heading off to Florida for a conference tomorrow, so I don't have that option.  So, instead I did 3/4 of the workout tonight.  I was also able to increase reps on a couple of the moves.  My arms feel pumped after that workout.  Love it.

Day 701 - 5k Run

I woke up this morning and planned to go out for a run right away until I was driving to the running trail and realized it was only 24 degrees outside, so I decided to wait and do the run later in the morning.I'm glad I did because even at 11:30 the trail was still pretty slick in spots.  I was happy that I was able to get through the run okay without having to stop.  I wasn't exactly setting a staggering pace, but I did work up a pretty good sweat.

Day 699 - X2 Plyocide

I decided to take my rest day yesterday, so I did Plyocide tonight.  Good workout and my back feels good, so I feeling pretty good about things.  I worked up quite a sweat tonight.  I weighed in this morning and was pretty happy to see that my weight is 141.

Day 697 - X2 Ab Ripper & Chect + Back + Balance (1/2)

I was off from work today because it's President's Day.  That allowed me to get an early start on the workout.  I started with Ab Ripper and then did the first half of Chest + Back + Balance.  I plan to finish up Chest + Back + Balance tomorrow.

Day 696 - X2 Yoga

I got to spend the day with Kristi and Stephen at the Philly auto show. We stopped at Reading Terminal market and we're able to try a "famous" pork sandwich from Dinic's. It was delicious.

When I got home it was snowing again and the driveway had a tick covering of ice. We all spent an hour chipping up the ice, so by the time that was done I wasn't all too energetic to workout. But I knew that I had worked hard on trying to get back into a routine of working out this week and I didn't want to diminish that by slacking off at this point. As usual, I'm glad I did the yoga workout.

Looking in the mirror I see a bit of improvement, but still have a way to go to get back to where I was 6 months ago. I'm just glad back back continues to feel better so that I'm able to do the workouts.

Day 695 - Plyocide

When I got home tonight I wasn't all too motivated to do Plyocide, but I realized that if I didn't do it tonight that it probably wouldn't happen this week and I knew that I really needed to get this workout in for some cardio conditioning.  So, I pushed my way through the lack of motivation and got it done.  I'm glad I did.  It went okay.  I had to throw in a couple of breaks, but overall it was only moderately more difficult than it used ot be when I was in top form.  Tomorrow I hopefully will be getting to a PT appt. (as long as the weather allows).  We're supposed to have yet another snow storm rolling in tomorrow with a chance for 8-10" of snow.  What a terrible ugly winter it's been.

Day 694 - Chest + Back + Balance (2/2) & Ab Ripper

I started off tonight by doing Ab Ripper and got through it fine without having to modify. I then completed the workout I had started yesterday. It went pretty well. I felt good by the time I was done.

Day 693 - Chest + Back + Balance (1/2)

Last week I took most of the week off from workouts because we had a major ice storm that knocked out all power to our home for three days.  It was down into the teens at night, so staying warm was a real challenge and I didn't get much sleep those nights, so by Saturday when the power was back I was really dragging my butt.  The ice also brought down a tree onto our driveway, so I had the fun of cutting up a 16" trunk with my chainsaw and haling all of that off the the driveway  Wow, has it been a brutal winter here in PA. 

Tonight I'm getting back to doing some workouts by getting in the first half or Chest + Back + Balance.  I plan to do the other half tomorrow night and then hopefully do Plyocide on Wednesday.  That's the plan at least.

Day 692 - P.A.P. Upper

I had my weekly physical therapy last night.  It continues to help some, but it's taking a long time to get my back and neck feeling better.  Tonight I got in a good workout of PAP Upper.  I'm hoping to get in at least three days of workouts this week.  Super Bowl was on Sunday and I ate a bit too much during that, but I've been trying to do better since then, so hopefully no damage done to the healthy eating.

Day 691 - 3 Mile run

I forgot to post this on Saturday.  I got out for a morning run.  The temperature got up to about the freezing mark when I got out, so it wasn't too bad for a run.  There was still snow everywhere, so thankfully the walking path on Struble Trail had been cleared so that I could safely run.  I didn't do any other workouts throughout the week, so I'm glad I got out to do this.
