P90X-17 Shoulders Arms AbX

Absolutely senselessness at work today, and utterly frustrating, so there was plenty of stress to burn.  I was totally wiped out as well, but I knew I would feel better after a workout.   I just didn’t know that once I got going I would be up to actually "Bringing it!" for a change.  Upped the weight on a bunch of sets and smoked a couple of the max rep exercises as swell.  Syndie was working out with me on Face time.  At first it was more like family night, introducing my wife and granddaughter.  Syndie’s family was shooting back and fourth and saying "Hello!" and "Hi!" as they went about their business.  After that we buckled down. Syndie must have been on a mission to make me turn in my man card because she was slinging weight like crazy.  I had too increase the weight!  Really good workout and I’m glad Syndie was there to push me.  Thanks Syndie!  :D

P90X-15 (on day 16) Chest back AbX

Hit is good and hard tonight.   Third week and I am starting to get the numbers dialed in again.   This means I hit muscle failure by the end.  whew!   Good to have Syndie, my partner in pain there.  Misery loves company.

Riding with Chris G.

It’s fun to have sweat365 friends stop by for a ride. I think it helps give a little perspective to what the "other guy" is talking about sometimes. These aren’t the hardest, prettiest, or longest rides by a long shot.  The hills aren’t the longest, or the steepest, but they do have their moments and over the course of the ride can take their toll a rider.   I think Chris did pretty darn well for having only been on a trainer all winter.

P90X-12 Legs back AbX

A tad warm in Georgia today.  Syndie asked to do the workout early as she had a concert date with her daughter.  I didn’t want to do it tomorrow as I have plans for a ride with Chris Garvey when he rolls into town tomorrow.  A ride and leg workout in P90X in the same day would be excess I think.   At any rate, we did it, and I was a soupy mess at the end.  Did OK on the pullups, but I didn’t do anything heroic otherwise.   We both gave Tony "feedback" throughout the DVD, but he didn’t seem very affected.  :)  It was a good partnership workout.

Small group after work

Really nice day. About 8 miles into the ride one of the guys instigated adding an extra ten miles by doing the backside loop as well. Some good riding and lots of sharing on the pulls. Worked out well.

P90x-10 Shoulders Arms AbX

Very good workout today with Syndie on Face Time. I had gone out to eat at a buffet and was a tad gassy at the beginning, but it settled down after a bit.   We both went after it pretty hard today and I know I upped weight on a few getting right back to where I left off from the last go around.  Syndie is no slouch and slings a fair amount of weight around herself.  She works hard and I she is a great workout partner and motivator.  I suffered a wifi outage during AbX.  Reset my cable modem and it all came back.  I only missed a couple sets and just picked up wherever Syndie was at.

P90X-8 on day 9 Chest Back

Syndie and I had to put off this workout from yesterday but pulled it off today.   Still somethings I have to watch out for… diamond pushups is one of those things.  Modified with hands further apart to lessen strain on the shoulder.   In the end of it all it felt good to have pumped out the reps I did.  Sweaty mess at the end.

P90X-5 Legs Back AbX

Syndie went out of town, but she still was able to hook up for a round of P90X this morning.   Legs…. yikes… after two days of riding, yesterdays being a pretty hard ride, … yeah… legs were shot.   Still a good workout… when I wasn’t stumbling.   AbX went fairly well.   50 masons with a 5 lb dumbbell.

Small group chase ride.

Whew! Six of us altogether, with two taking off ahead and the rest playing catch up. Now we aren’t an experienced race team or anything, but we did sort of maintain a pace line. I stopped to sign everyone in while the other three kept on. They didn’t quite understand the concept of oh, and lets drop it back a notch and let Mike catch back up without blowing a gasket. Although they weren’t going all out, they were sharing their load amongst them so I didn’t gain as much ground as fast as I had hoped. Three miles or so into it one guy rolled back while the other two eased back a little and we finally reassembled. We had some fairly good segments but the wind was brutal. Good hard ride.

Modified for smoke 2

Same as Tuesday… more smoke than I cared to contend with. Not exactly the same route, though some of the same ground and much the same beat down. On a good note it is a change up from the normal route, or perhaps rut. Plenty breezy and hot 86°
