  1. Workout 08/26/12:

    by , August 26th, 2012 at 11:00 PM (Maple Syrup with a Side of Chlorine)
    Some more drylands for your viewing pleasure ...


    - Rowing machine: 15:06, 3746 meters (highest total yet)
    -Seated leg press w/ calf point: 3 x 10 (170, 190, 210)
    - Back extenstions: 3 x 10 (did the last two sets holding 5# plate)
    - Dips: did 6 sets of 3
    -- 1 + 2: -50#
    -- 2 + 4: -40#
    -- 5 + 6: Unassited (first time ever)

    Got home, mowed the lawn and cooked on the grill. I have 3 x5 sets pullups and 3 x 5 sets of chinups before hitting the hot tub. Now for the tennis ball torture before bed!

    I have two more chances to swim at the Hoosick Falls outdoor pool before they close on Friday. The Rec Center looks to be coming along on schedule - should open after Labor Day. Wonder if I can get some cold water swimming in after they fill it up (and before they heat it)?

    I also am thinking of that great Plymouth to P-Town swim that some of our brethren completed last week. Hmmm ...

    This was bitter-sweet because it is the last time I will get to workout with my daughter for a while - she leaves for college early tomorrow morning. Hard to believe that my little girl is heading off to start the next phase of her life! It is cliche but it really does seem like only yesterday that she actually was a little girl.
