Last Night's workout and other thoughts

So here I am again, back to where I was in 2006. Just before Christmas and weighing 265lbs. Unlike the last time which was a slow road from 170 in 2003 to 265 in 2006, this one was shorter. Probably because 245 is the lightest I've been i the last couple of years.

I've ran 2 Tough Mudders. 1 in 2012, and one in 2013. I didn't run any this year. I haven't done much training in anything other than my mind in the last 2 years. Thanks to taking 9+ credits at term, and working full time. In fact I've gone to school year round (at least 1 class every term) for the last 2 years. I have my Bachelor of Science now, well... maybe / kind of. Graduation is Thursday, commencement Saturday, Final Grades next Tuesday. No idea when the actual paper will arrive.

But the not training has taken it's toll. I've tried. I had a small gym set up in my garage,  but lost it due to the basement flooding. I have no where else to put my power tower, or my heavy bag right now.

Last night was the first workout I've done in a while.

3 sets of 5:
5 push ups
1 arm rows, R/L @16kg kettlebell
goblet squats @16kg. kettlebell

10 2hand kettlebell swigns @ 16kg. The floor didn't like that.
10 R/L slow front kicks, toes above eye level. again, floor didn't like that.

I might grab some mats or something on the way home tonight.

Tonight's plan:
couch to 5k (even though used to be able to run 5k)
5-4-3-2-1 per side Turkish Get-ups (if I can find a stable spot in the house with a high enough ceiling).


If you're looking for my Computer / Information Security / Physcial Security stuff, you can go to www.rattis.net. That's where I'm writing that stuff at. Not that I've been writing as much as I'd like.

This site is going to be more more a workout and food journal.
