Re: Post your daily exercise routine

It is a fine thing go come across an interesting person who left a lasting mark, so I thank you for the introduction to Capability Brown. Hopefully I'll be able to enjoy his labors one day! He is not unlike our Fredrick Law Olmsted a few generations after Brown, designed Central Park, but I digress...

I am sure all of outdoor Yorkshire was pleased to have you back home, and I am sure you were just as happy. Not a bad way to start back! There's always a few intrepid athletes on cruises who have to have their "fix" . I'll heed your advice and start early, but no too early...this is vacation, after all .

We had a cold-ish front come through this morning that opened the skies and left us puddle-flooded, but by this afternoon the skies were crystal clear and the humidity had actually dropped. That tells you something when the moisture in the air is lower after a rain than before it!

My daughter joined me today, and as it is Sunday, we had the forest trails to ourselves. With only the cicadas, a few lizards, and squirrel or two to encourage us with their songs and rustling of leave, we ran a light four miles with a really fast time. With that little victory, we rewarded ourselves with a pitcher or lemonade tea on the dock. Fun day!

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Being on a guilt trip I thought I'd better make an appearance in the thread. It's very interesting reading about your exploits, new trainers and continuing sterling efforts with your running and gym training, respectively. Well done all

The part I don't actually feel so guilty about is not actually training myself. I have done nothing for over a week and I'm not even bothered about it. I work hard, I'm enjoying the sunny weather outdoors and that is essential for my wellbeing due to my nocturnal working hours, so be it. I'll be back at the gym when the weather gets cooler like I always do.

Because I'm not rying to fit everything in to my three hour slot of freedom time per day, I'm feeling much more content with life as I'm relaxed, and that is such a great feeling.
My wife is doing well too, I have been starting to make inquiries about possible employment changes and it's now less than three months until I can clear my 20-year old debt problem.
Life is looking sweet at long last.

Keep it going folks, I'm sure I'll be joining you all again in here within a week or so

Floydy! I am actually proud of you for taking a break. Even Olympic athletes take lengthy breaks for physical and mental recovery. If part of that mental break is stepping away from the fitness threads for a while - good for you .

I am delighted to hear your wife is doing better and it it's been hard and dedicated work to get yourself to the place in which you had options on where and when you wanted to work.

Enjoy the summer and recuperate away!

The weights aren't going anywhere .

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

It's good to hear from you Floydy.....And I'm glad things are finally working out for you and Mrs Floydysaurus.....

I looked old Freddy up Surfermom, and he did some outstanding stuff during his life, not least of which was Central Park which has probably set the standard for all future cities....
'A pitcher of lemonade tea on the dock'......Sounds like something out of a Tom Sawyer story...... Idyllic....'Miss Daisy's Lemonade Tea' and a slice of 'Key Lime Pie'.....

Oh yes!....back to today's effort......Five hot dusty miles under a blazing sun!.....and afterwards......Sitting under the pigeon loft with a mug of Sweet Yorkshire tea and a Bakewell Tart.....

PS:- I hope Mrs Fox doesn't mind me calling her a 'Tart'......runs for cover!

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

A nice gym session yesterday, not as good as the best one I had recently, but even with the air-con on the gym is pretty humid. I found it quite energy-sapping! How you amazing runners do it I'll never know.

Even feeling drained a bit I mnaged a score of 90/100, burnt 1024 calories and lifted 67,790kg, with the leg workout continuing to surpass the arm and body workout totals combined, being 51% of the workout. I'm sure the datakey system missed out some crunches and back extensions, though, as other people were noticing the key system was a bit glitchy. Still, as long as the leg workouts are at 120kg on the leg sled I'm happy anyway.

Take care all and watch out for those heat levels!

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Glad to see you all fighting the heat and humidity Florida style! Well done!

It's actually cooler today as showers in the night knocked down the heat.

This is a short entry as I am off on vacation. You can bet that I will remain true to the cause (and honestly so I can enjoy the pizza, pasta, and wine), and will report in when I can.

Wishing you all well!
