This was a depressing week, and it was a week where I dealt with some depression, and between the two, only four workouts were had.

Well, the whole COVID-19 situation sure escalated quickly during this week.  I'm still healthy, as far as I can tell, but the dour mood and public service closures around where I live put a damper on certain plans.  On the plus side, since my main workout area is my own...

I'm feeling full of piss and vinegar (by which I mean caffeine), I've got some hype music playing on the side as I get ready to head out for some D&D, and I just attacked a weekend of serious workouts.  You'll have to wait until next week for the recap of exactly what w...

I'm definitely making strides towards one-arm pull ups.  Though I'm not yet strong enough to do more than just negatives from an uneven pull up to get up on the bar, my resistance to gravity has improved markedly since even just a week ago.  It's an exciting development...

Opening with four straight days of workouts this week was a test for my recovery capabilities, even with the last one being on the lighter side.  I feel good about how my body handled it, but I'm not eager to repeat the experience.

Up front: I didn't do my usual monthly hundred burpee challenge this week.  A close friend has been going through a rough patch, and it was weighing on my mind heavily enough that I wasn't in the right headspace to give it a real go.  I'll try to make up for it next wee...

After a couple of lighter weeks to get other parts of my life under control, it was good to get back into the full swing of a five workout week.  Fortunately, it doesn't seem like I suffered too much for that slacking.  Since most performance is driven by a solid base t...

Well, I ended up preoccupied for the last few days, so I'm calling it in at only three workouts for this week.  Having back-to-back abbreviated weeks isn't something that I'd wanted to do, but some things take higher priority.
