Recumbent bike 15 minutes, got sweaty, elliptical 25 minutes slower than I would have liked so I didn't engage the calf muscle much. 25 lb curls x 20, 50 lb presses & dips x 15, 30 pushups, 60 seconds plank. I'm not sure why the weight dropped, but hopefully it continues a downward trajectory.

Boot Camp. 5 minutes bike to warm up, then beat the crap out of myself for the next 45 minutes. I'll be sore!

15 minutes recumbent bike, 10 minutes elliptical, 30 lb x 15 curls, 50 lb x 15 presses, 50 lb x 15 tricep dips, 30 pushups. Good workout. Sore from Wednesday - especially hip flexors from the side kick flutters. Yowzers.

Lots of walking around in Twin Falls, Idaho. Woke up earlier than planned, went for a walk, then during the tournament walked a lot, then at night went for a walk with my wife. About 9 miles total according to my iPhone. Not sure how accurate that is, but seems decently accurate.

Noon Boot Camp. My shoulders (and other body parts) will be sore tomorrow. I think Chantelle is evil but she's always smiling and laughing. I bet she tortures puppies.

Did Boot Camp for 25 minutes then tapped out. I was getting dizzy after 10 reps or so, and it wasn't getting any better. After getting back to the office I drank a couple non-diet sodas, ate sandwich and soup, and a small bag of potato chips. Not sure if I was sodium deficient or what, but it felt odd. Friday I wasn't struggling like this and the exercises weren't all that different.

I need to stop eating so much. Can't wait to run again so I can keep eating but still shed pounds. Or not.

35 minutes on the recumbent bike, worked up a decent sweat. Then some weights - 25 curls x 30 lbs; 15 presses x 50 lbs; 15 tricep dips x 50 lbs. 30 pushups, 60 second planks, 5 pullups.

25 minutes recumbent bike at a 13-14 resistance, 3:00 pace. Good amount of sweat from a low impact exercise. Then did some weights. Then showered and hurried back to a meeting.

Noon Boot Camp. I realized last night that I could likely run if I went slowly and didn't extend my calf, so for the first time in nearly 2 months I slowly jogged during the warmup and in between each station. It felt good to jog and I felt no ill effects.

3 slow miles from home this morning. Favoring my left calf, so putting extra pressure on the ball of my right foot. Hopefully it won’t cause any problems. AP:  10:16

3 slow miles from the Y at Noon. AP: 10:12

No left calf pain niggles at all, so that’s a good sign.

Noon Boot Camp. It was a brutal leg fest with oodles and oodles of sweat. An hour later I've finally stopped sweating.

I'm not sore from yesterday's double runs. I know part of it is the slow pace, but I should've been somewhat sore and I really wasn't at all. I think the cross training I've done on the bike, elliptical, and Boot Camp have helped my body tremendously. I'm glad I realized the right recipe for success, and I hope I can get back into running 30+ miles per week along with Boot Camp as that's when I feel the best.

I can't figure out how my weight is 2 lbs different from yesterday. I was busy all day yesterday and only had a granola bar for dinner. I did drink a lot of water during Boot Camp, and didn't drink any water on my Noon run yesterday. Hmm...
