You're the inspiration for my wife. She is looking forward to her first pullup also. Anything you would have done differently to get where you are now?

Thanks! I'm glad that She's wanting to get to work, although there are people here who are TONS more inspirational than I could ever hope to be. :)

I don't think I would change anything about the way I work out. If I fail to outdo my previous session, i accept it without letting it get me down. I just do what I can and am satisfied with that. I'm not on any sort of time pressure after all.

If there's one thing I would like to do differently is to comment on everyone elses's workout logs more. Knowing that there's a crowd that will read and comment on your workouts makes you sort of accountable... I've been "enjoying" that sort of accountability, but I havne't been returning the favor.

It's a new (bad) record!

L2D2: 8:50. (3 pullups/7 pushups/13 squats)

I was doing my best to do dead hang pullups. Sometimes I succeeded, more often I had to put my foot on the doorknob or tap my toes against the floor for just a few extra pounds of oomph to get me started.

I also worked on my boat all day long, so I was worn out to start with.

And I STILL have tor read 30 pages for an 8:30 AM class.

Never mind the time! In my book, D2 is practice day, a workout to practice form and work om max strength. You've practiced proper dead-hang pull ups, it's going to help you a lot this next D3!

I appear to have injured my foot.

Late last week, i was hobbling around on Thur or Fri, and it hasn't gotten any better. Maybe it's a stone bruise or something... I don't SEE a problem, but it hurts like hell when I put weight on it.

I'm going to the doc after class today. Hooray for school clinics.

I guess I'll just work on pullups and pushups this week.

careful with the push-ups... take a rest, we all will or have needed a break due to a minor injury.

Started getting perilously close to falling off the front page.

Law school started, and I haven't worked out. But I started back again today.

W11L2D1 22 rounds.

I did pullups every single time. THey weren't QUITE dead-hang; I put myself in a bit of a body row position, and may have given a slight push with my feet. I also switched to girly pushups around 12 or 13 or so.

My weight, chest, and waist are all unchanged since a month ago. I want to change that for the NEXT time I check those numbers in a month.

Running.

5 klicks
4 laps
3 miles
48:34

I started out strong, running in the rain... I was imagining my own "Rocky"esque montage.

By the end, I was merely tired and soaking wet. Looks better in the movies than in real life.

I wound up walking the last couple of laps, just in an effort to still do 3 miles rather than give up.

W11 L2D2 3/8/13 pullups/pushups/squats

No cheating.

5:20

It was a struggle to get started. My inner child was whining about being tired and depressed blah blah blah.

Now I feel so good that I'm going to clean my fish tank and study for school tomorrow.
