if you recently dropped carb intake low you may have dumped allot of retained water?

My carb intake has been reasonable, I think. I suspect you're right about dumping water weight, though, as I've had a few days recently of high-sodium junk food consumption, and I bloat up like an orca when I eat that stuff.

I just wanted to comment that I love love love the prairie dog looking suspicious.

And good work completing level one! Nicers!

Saturdays are my rest day ... no exercise, and diet is relaxed a bit.

Tonight, I was set to run 30 minutes in the p.m. I made the mistake of running while it was still very hot out, and stopped running after 26 minutes when I overheated and felt like I was going to throw up. My first busted run since I started back a month or so ago. Apparently my heat tolerance isn't what it used to be. :x

Until the summer heat passes, looks like I'll be running in the early morning. Lesson learned. :)

p.m. workout: L2D1, 29 rounds. 2 better than L1D1 last week, and with better form on the pullups, and I didn't have to switch grips at any point. :)

Also 4 sets of 10 on the grippers.

p.m. run: 30 minutes in a thunderstorm through sheets of rain. Yeah, yeah, I know, I'll take my chances. :) There's very little in the exercise realm that I find more fun than running in the rain. After beefing my Sunday run so badly, it felt good just to go run like hell and not have to worry about sweltering heat.

p.m. workout: Did L2D2 after a big dinner and long nap, so this was hard going. Finished in 5:48.

4x10 with grippers.

I miss heavy rain (from FL)... just not the same here in CO. I use to love washing my car in a torrential downpour. Good for you!

Here in N.Alabama we've been desperate for rain - finally got some. I love to do a good WO in it!

p.m. run: 30 min. Uneventful.

a.m. workout: L2D3. Would normally have done this on Friday, but got busy.

Completed in 3:30. Looks like my current max pullups with good form is 7, so had to take a couple breaks during pullups. Dropped immediately to floor and did pushups, and took a break in the middle. No breaks during hindu squats.

On Monday, I start Level 3. :)

Scott, just to make sure.. when you pause your pull-ups, you don't move on to your push-ups till you have completed ALL your pull-ups right?

Correct ... I do as many pullups as I can, take a break, then do more pullups, and don't go to pushups until all of the pullups are complete.

EDIT: I see what you're asking ... yeah, I do all 13 pullups before I go to pushups, all 26 pushups before going to squats. :)

My wife and I both have upcoming birthdays at the end of the month, but her marathon training starts this week, so we celebrated this weekend so as not to throw her off at the end of the month. Overindulged a little (lot), so I have to be extra good this week. Also, I'm getting a big chest tattoo started on the 28th, and I'd like to drop a little fat by then.

p.m. workout: L3D1. Evening workouts have been rough lately, felt hot and sick all through this one. Switching to mornings.

Did 25 rounds, switching to chinup grip after 14 rounds. The pushups and hindu squats are relatively easy, the pullups/chinups are the hard part.

a.m.: 30 min. run. Much better in the morning ... I think unless forecast calls for heavy evening rains, I'll be doing my workouts in the a.m.
