    Did my second kettlebell marathon doing long cycle. Managed to do 35 minutes at 12kg and then dropped to 8kg for the rest when I felt my hands ripping.

    Please elaborate on your kettlebell marathon cycle. I'm guessing that you are doing various kettlebell movements nonstop - is that correct? Thank you.

    My 2021 resolutions. I have one each for body, heart and mind.

    Body: Workout 120 times in 2021 (only got 97 last year)
    Heart: Have 12 date nights with my wife (in addition to Valentine's, Anniversary and her birthday)
    Mind: Finish edits on second novel and submit to a publisher

    To date, my progress:

    Day: 76/365
    Body: 32/120
    Heart: 3/15
    Mind: 5% complete

    Over the weekend did two hours of shoveling heavy, wet snow, that's enough workout for anybody! lol

    Tonight I surprised my wife by taking her out on a Wednesday night, was very pleasant, less of a wait at the restaurant. (Though they did overcook my ribs...)

    Thank you This! This marathon is non-stop long cycle, so swing to clean and jerk. I switched hands every 30 sec.

    That is a killer workout, @3furballs. 👍 I need to put this in my exercise rotation. I'm thinking I will start around 10 minutes and work up from there.

    I am making no progress. Trying to hold on and not lose more muscle. Six weeks now without a weight workout. I did a fifteen minute squats-sh press-lunges circuit two days ago and amstill stiff and sore, lol. I have to push on.

    Well back into lockdown. No cardio kickboxing. Hitting the bag is a major stress reliever. No weights at my friends place and I was making progress. So weights with what I have at home, zoom cardio workouts and kettlebell workouts. Might try jogging again, really not a fan, but don't want to lose my conditioning!

    Toronto never really left lockdown...even hair salons (...nevermind gyms...) have been shuttered since November!

    I am glad the days are longer, and warmer, because I can get outside for walks. My hip is grumbling about LONG walks, tho, which is directly related to me not lifting weights for seven weeks....I am missing all my glute work and my hips are suffering.

    Hubby should have in-home gym constructed in a month or two and I’ll start lifting again. I am very,very sad about losing strength.
