    Been very busy with work this week and that's my excuse but today I did something different. Some quality resistance bands arrived and I'm keeping them at work. I broke them into today doing the following with various resistance tensions:

    Double overhead press 5x5
    Double bent-over rows 5x5
    Double curls - 3x5
    Single tricep overhead extension with each arm - 3x5

    This is not how I typically train. I don't prefer the hypertrophy feeling that this and barbells/dumbells provide. But, I will play around with resistance band training while at work because it's easier to bang out some training that with kettlebells which require that I mentally warm-up to the work to be done.

    Overall, pretty well-rested after having three consecutive rest days so I have no excuse to not returning to my pedal to the metal training.

    Today I was supposed to be running 16 miles, but I've been nursing a cold for the last few days and ran out of energy. Forced myself to do 8.5 hilly miles, so it wasn't a compete washout. And did have some pretty views at the top of some of the hills. dythw3joftj4.jpg

    Recovering from a cold today, so just a 35 minutes walk/run on the treadmill. Burned about 350 calories.

    Hard interval day on the Air Dyne Pro (Assault style bike). 16 X 90 seconds/1 minute active recovery. Roughly 560 calories in 40 total minutes. 250ish Watts on the interval part maybe a bit higher.

    Throughout the day I'll add in 200 more pushups, around 150 single arm military presses and weight squats.

    Went to the gym and did 35 minutes on bike. Did not do weights or anything else today because I am helping my daughter move this afternoon and figure that will be an additional work-out.
