Managed 4 workouts over the last 2 weeks I was absent from this blog (3 at the gym and 1 at home). 2 of the gym workouts were at my new gym and focused on metabolic conditioning centered primarily around the crossfit box. The third gym workout was at my old gym and centered around heavier compound lifting with H.I.I.T. sets between lifting sets. The home workout was body weight focused with some cardio intervals and a lot of stretching and active recovery. Also was able to get in some walking and body weight work while on vacation.
Spent 3.5 days at Emerald Isle on Memorial Day vacation with the family and with the in laws. Perfect, albeit hot, and sunny beach weather and nice water conditions for three days. Did have a real scare with my older English Bulldog on the way to the beach with the 3 hour drive. He managed to get severely overheated despite the AC conditions in our vehicle to the point where we had to make an emergency landing and cool him off and narrowly missed a fatal outcome. He recovered and we took precautionary measures on the trip back and he is doing fine now. The heavy rain on the way back helped and that rain has continued daily since Monday, 5/28/18, with today being Thursday the 31st!
In this time I was able to watch some sports, MMA and the NBA playoffs. Most of these events were lackluster so I may not bother to write about them individually.
I was able to listen to great podcasts like Onnit with Paul Check part 2 and JRE with GSP, as well as great music like the new albums by Beachhouse and Pusha T. I will probably write about those soon.
