Time, Money… there is never enough of either.

Posted in Philosphy and Life on August 28, 2009 by joeyfit

So I haven’t logged a workout of any kind in over a week. Time has been in very short supply. I made a decision to go back to college and get a piece of paper that says I know how to do the job I’ve been doing the last 9 years.

Mind you, it doesn’t mean I’ll get a better job or even get to keep the one I have, but perhaps this will open the doors for a better job or secure the one I have. The VA is paying for it all due to my service connected disability, so why not take advantage of a free education?

Anyway, I started school this week, and it’s been good, but packed. I honestly have more spare time at work than I do the rest of the hours of the week. Pretty sad when you can’t wait to get to work, so you can have a break!

Sobeit, once I get settled back in to a routine I will squeeze in a workout schedule and post as they come up!

Peace out!

Time was at a premium. Got a mile run in with the dog before work.

Went for a run with the dog. Not sure how far, but it was around a mile or so. Trying to teach him how to stay on lead and heel, so it was a strange kind of workout/run, in that I not only had to focus on my running, but the dog’s inexperience with running on a leash.

Fight Gone Bad!

Three rounds of:
Wall-ball, 20 pound ball, 10 ft target (Reps)
Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75 pounds (Reps)
Box Jump, 20″ box (Reps)
Push-press, 75 pounds (Reps)
Row (Calories)

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.

Had planned on doing this last night, but we had a home visit from the doberman rescue inspector that went through most of the evening. Back on track tonight.

As I’ve said before, this is perhaps one of my favorite workouts. I didn’t beat my PR, but it went well, and felt good. Previous PR is 228.

Scored 212
