We walked back & forth between the car and the pre-game BBQ at noon in the Houston sun.

I think that counts as a double workout. I can't imagine what it's like in July...

3.5 mile jog, in just a shade over 35 minutes, with a 20 minute cool-down walk. The heat and humidity are finally beginning to fade a little. Trying to keep the heart-rate in the 75-80% of max range instead of pushing to 85%+ (based on 220-age=MaxHR...most of the time I use the Kervonian method instead, which gives me higher ranges). Trying to keep HR down while I get the high blood pressure spike figured out. (seems like stress is doing it...I'm fine at home but even while on the meds it goes way up by the time I get to w*rk and goes back down after being home a couple of hours). Did the same run on Saturday.

Last thursday I did a charity 6km run with some colleagues at work. We were going pretty fast, and would have finished in about 32:30-33:00, but one of our colleagues pooped out and we had to hang back and help her a bit. Ended up finishing the 6km in 35 min. All good fun.

Also did a 5KM charity walk on Saturday. Nasty, windy blustery conditions along the lake.
Sunday morning was 18KM run starting at 0545. Good, felt strong and somehow managed to shave 5m10s off of last weeks time. Not sure how but bodes well for the upcoming half marathon. Today is just chinups and pushups.

Took the mutt to the reservoir this morning. Nice 2 mile walk in a cool breeze. Just polished off a foot long Subway as the body needs plenty of nourishment after a vigorous workout.

I got plenty of exercise this weekend. Eight-mile walk, weight lifting, and some Wii Fit Boxing. Hurting everywhere this morning.

Lifted 15.8 tons today at the gym (weight lifting machines). My arm is feeling better and with any luck I can stop babying it next week.

Trail rode the mtn bike for 14 miles. Great substitute for running which has become problematic with plantar fasciitis. Also gives a bit of variety although I find running in the woods a great substitute for the neighborhood.

Generally walking or biking an hour and lifting weights every day, but missed my first day in 4 months on Tues. Been using runkeeper on my iphone to track hikes/bikes. Great app. Yesterday I forgot to stop activity and it tracked me all day long - 50 some miles. Thinking of getting P90X or something similar for the winter

Last month the elevators went out at work and I had to walk up 8 flights which I thought would be a piece of cake, wrong!

Maybe for your 75th you can plan to do it in full fireman's suit You are a stud!

Did I mention that I was carrying my wife while doing it?

(She did 70 repeats today....4,130 upward steps...approx 103 stories.....but the young thing can be excused...her 60th birthday isn't for 3 weeks yet. )

Terrific! That is simply amazing and quite impressive.

For me, today is a day off from lifting weights. So, I walked a mile outside this morning. That was all I could manage outdoors. Exercising inside is vastly preferable in the New Orleans summer heat and humidity. My home gym room is unusable right now due to hurricane damage, hence the attempt outside.

Dawn patrol. First time in three weeks. Good to be back.

I took off late on the lip of an eight-footer and made it all the way down to the bottom turn (and the rest of the ride). I'm pretty sure that if I'd flapped my arms a little going down that elevator then I could have flown all the way in to the beach.

The Saturday forecast: 10 feet and maybe a bit more. I'm there.

Does it count if you wiggle your butt while surfing this forum? Ok ok 33 minute walk (over my 30 min minimum) in the park - got passed by several hard core little old ladies.

Still in the yellow cholesterol wise and 120/65 BP.

heh heh heh - after 70 I'm gonna start taking this stuff serious.
