More Exercise

My available free time continues to be compressed. Yesterday I walked three miles. Today I did the following:

Warm Up - Run 3 Miles
Jump Practice - 5 x Low, Low, Med, Med, Max, Max

KB Box Squats - 5 x BW, 24k, 32k
One Arm Press - 5/5 x 12k, 16k, 20k
Knee Raises - 5, 5, 5
Renegade Rows - 5/5 x 16k, 16k, 16k

This workout was extremely demanding for me to finish, likely due to the energy expended running. My workouts over the next month or so are likely to mirror this style. Work is offering growth opportunities that require me to put a lot in. I enjoy the time spent and am learning daily, but it definitely does not help my training. The running is necessary for my mental health and well being.

This morning I setup the new over the range microwave - on the counter. My wife is going to arrange for installation, eventually... My new MP3 player arrived and is charging now. I picked up a 4GB Sansa Click. A coworkers just got the new iPod touch. It's cool, but I cannot justify $300 for a music player. I did decide to order an Asus Eee PC 901. I expect it will be excellent for traveling and is likely to replace my laptop for daily web browsing.

I may do some grip work tomorrow. I do not anticipate any hard training until Tuesday.
