Week 104 - 2 YEARS!
    Wednesday, March 25, 2010
    D1L6:
      Skipped. (-21 cf. previous D1L6, -29 cf. previous PR)

      Really, last Saturday's workout (L6D1) was the start of this cycle, so I didn't really skip it.

      Really.
    Wednesday, March 25, 2010
    D2L6:
      Untimed.

      Why have I dodged Day for so long?

      BECAUSE IT'S HARD, THAT'S WHY!

    D3L6:
      Skipped

Week 105
    Tuesday, March 30, 2010
    D1L6:
      25 (+4 cf. previous D1L6, -4 cf. previous PR)

      Whhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeew.


      Pull-ups got crappy.
      Push-ups got hard.

      The 25th set was started with only 12 seconds left on the clock, and finished about 45 seconds later. But I am counting it.

      Pictures.
    Wednesday, April 1, 2010
    D2L6:
      6'24"

      I did it for time. First time doing so in ages.
      I thought I should time it, because I have been finding the big sets on Day 3 very challenging.

      A timed Day 2 is good transition between the smaller (but more numerous) sets of Day 1 and the huge (and solitary) sets of Day 3.
    Saturday, April 4, 2010
    D3L6:
      8'09" (-0'43" cf. previous D3L6, +3'52" cf. previous PR)
      Pull-ups: 32 (16-6-3-3-2-2)
      Push-ups: 64 (20-10-10-4-4-4-4-4-4)
      Squats: 64 (36-20-8)

      Ea-a-a-rrrrrrrrr-ly in the m-o-O-o-r-ning!

      Weak on push-ups,
      To beat Day 3, I've got to be able to do half or more of the prescribed push-ups in my first set.

      On the plus side, this is my first week with all three workouts in a long time.

Planned for tomorrow morning, but I'll have to get a good night's sleep tonight if it is going to happen as we need to hit the Farmer's Market before leaving for wife's hockey game at 9:00.

6:30: D3L6
7:00: Market
8:00: return home, eat breakfast and pack for trip to Valley
9:00 depart

Week 106

Week 106
    Wednesday, April 7, 2010
    D1L6:
      29 (+4 cf. previous D1L6, ±0 cf. previous PR)

      That was pretty awesome!
      Doubly so because I did it with gout in my right big toe and a bruised left knee.

      I was only aiming to beat last week's count by 1 or 2 sets.
      Beating it by 4 and tying my PR was a delightful surprise!


      The Gout

      I have had it before, but only had it diagnosed about a year ago. Typically it was fairly mild and struck my right (?) ankle, but the last two flare-ups have been in my big toe.

      I felt a twinge on Sunday night and sensed the incipient attack, but, as I was cozy in my bed, I forgot about it by morning. Monday night was different. I was up half the night with my throbbing toe. I was annoyed because I had a hockey game at 6:30 Tuesday morning and didn't want to miss it.

      When my alarm went off at 5:30, I got up, got dressed, and wondered what to do.

      Gout is the accumulation of uric acid crystals in the tiny blood vessels of the extremities. Since it sounds like a circulatory issue, I decided to try to walk it off. I called the dog and went out to try to walk it off.

      The first 100 yards were brutal. I was clenching and unclenching my fists and teeth, sometimes moaning, and I felt like crying. I considered turning back. But it got a little better. After fifteen minutes I was doing OK! I could wiggle my toe a bit and my limp was much reduced. Once I got home, I loaded my gear into the car and headed out to hockey.

      I arrived just a few minutes late, changed, and stepped onto the ice. I had a fall in the first few minutes, and I had to skate more "gently" than usual, but I had a gooood time.


      The Knee

      No, it wasn't hockey.
      It was something much, much stupider.

      I was building a fire in our woodstove. I had a couple of pieces of 1×8 pine about 8" or 10" long. I decided to break them in two for use as kindling. I took the first and whacked it on my right knee...too gently. I tried again, a little harder, but still not hard enough. Third time. Harder yet. Success.

      I still had one piece left and my right knee was now fully tenderized, so I decided to give it a go with my left. And I wasn't going to fool around with half-assed attempts. I was going to drive my knee THROUGH THAT BOARD!

      Instead, I wound up hopping around the living room, intact board in hand.

      I got it burned anyway.

      Shaved nearly two minutes off last week's time.
      Quite pleased.

    D1L6:
      31 (+2 cf. previous D1L6, +2 cf. previous PR)

      Another great workout. :)
      I don't know why working out has gotten easier.
      I feel more energetic.
      It could because it is spring and the days are longer and sunnier.
      It could be because I am eating a little less and am cutting out most carbs and limiting sweets.

Week 108

Postby cheapo » Mon Apr 19, 2010 3:46 pm

Week 108
    Monday, April 19, 2010
    D1L7:
      21+1 (+3 cf. previous D1L6, +3 cf. previous PR)

      The problem with beating Level 6 is that one must then do the Level 7 workouts!

      I was aiming for 24 rounds, because that would give me a total of 96 pull-ups, just over the number of pull-ups I did on my last D1L6 (93). (23 rounds would put me just under).

      In any event I managed only 22.
      (21 complete rounds and 1 completed after the buzzer.)

      Still, a good number and 3 better than my previous PR from last summer!

    D3L7:
      8'47" (+0'54" cf. previous D3L7, +0'27" cf. previous PR)
      Pull-ups: 40 (12-10-6-5-1-3-2-1)
      Push-ups: 80 (20-16-4-10-10-10-5-5)
      Squats: 80 (44-24-12)

      I had trouble getting my kip going which resulted in a low rep count for the first set of pull-ups.

      ...and 80 of anything is hard!

The white text in my logs is for workouts scheduled for a given week.
I haven't done them yet.
I edit the white text and turn it black once the workout has been done.

Bernie's Gentlemen's Hockey Tournament

Postby cheapo » Fri Apr 23, 2010 3:26 am

I played the first game of my first ever hockey tournament last night.

Of the 15 guys on our roster, I had only played with 4 or 5 before, so, when I entered the changing room, I was sizing everyone up, nervously anticipating meeting the gaze of the guy who would know I had no place there...

But it didn't go like that. The team's organizer/coach asked me to be assistant manager which meant I was charged with collecting $50 from each player and with filling out the game sheet. That was cool, because it gave me the chance to meet a lot of the guys, which put me at ease.

The game was fast. We were outpaced and outclassed. The clock was left running once we were down by 5 points and the score wasn't updated after we were down by 6 or 7. After the game there was beer in the change room and upstairs in the rink's clubhouse. Two beer and a slice of pizza put me well over my Lose It! calorie budget for the day, but it was worth it.

I do it all again tonight.
