See this post to learn more about the Start Walking program in which I’m participating.
August 14-20, 2006. My goals this week included to complete cleaning the carport at our old place, join a gym, start Turbulence Training (interval training for cardio/aerobics + lower-rep/higher weight supersets for weight training), while returning to a 10,000+ steps (or equivalent) average. Here’s how I did; for details, go to the post of that title. (Titles in bold are to posts that are especially significant — discussion of technique, philosophy, etc. related to bettering my health.)
- Mon: The Colt gets a new home. 10,034 steps.
- Tue: The return of routine. 10,141 steps.
- Wed: Slacking off. 4,550 steps.
- Thu: Sort out. 4,175 steps.
- Fri: Soddenday. 10,338 steps (or equivalent).
- Sat: Return of Soddenday. 3,079 steps.
- Sun: Pt. Woronzof. 10,023 (or equivalent).
Summary: Finished the carport, including but Rozz needs to finish the garden. Joined the gym, not yet training, but I did get four days of just over 10,000 steps (or equivalent). And it looks like I may be down another couple of pounds, which would make it 20 lbs. lost since late December.
In non-Start Walking news: In prepartion for optimizing my diet with Precision Nutrition & my exercise program with Turbulence Training, it seemed useful to review how I got to where I am now, & where it seems I might need to go:
- Starting points (15 Aug 2006). This amounts to being another “State of my art” post.
- Tweaking my diet with Precision Nutrition (15 Aug 2006). There are fewer changes to make than I thought to adhere to PN’s 10 Habits: PN & Schwarzbein are pretty good matches.
And I also pointed to more info from Craig Ballantyne on interval training:
- An interval training primer (16 Aug 2006).
Blogger.com came out with a beta version which adds some cool functionality to blogs — for example, the use of labels to categorize posts into different subject categories. I upgraded immediately, & began adding labels to all my posts. I’m still not done with this, but I’ve gotten the past couple of months done. Makes it a lot easier to find related older posts, I think, & also helps anyone who chances across this blog to get a better idea of the topics I cover here.
