    In terms of the contest, the two half weeks add up to one at the end, so for the purposes of calculating goals met and cheats used it doesn't matter at the end. On the spreadsheet it looks a little odd, that's all.

    Friendly reminder: Any updates for last week need to be posted by the end of Wednesday; correspondingly, all contestants' updates and progress will be posted in summarised form either late Wednesday or early Thursday.
    OK, so for reporting & summarizing purposes, the first half week was Thurs - Sun (Sept 1-4), and the first full week is Mon - Sun (Sept 5-11), yes?

    wed - woke up at an ungodly hour
    and had a fabulous 60min yoga session.
    i've been practicing karandavasana
    i go can down to my arms but that is
    only half of it.

    i still have a lot of work to do.



    i'm also shopping around for a good trx instructor/class...
    the ones near my office are like too... super loud music
    blasting for me. no like.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    For deadlifts, I used 105 lbs
    Instead of toes to bar, I did my best version of knees to elbows, which means getting my knees up as high as I could.
    Finished the 5 rounds in 13:05.
    Beginning of first full week

    After going away for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary, although I went way off track from my diet (dessert and/or drinks 4 nights in a row), I am back on track for a full week of 3 CrossFit sessions. We got back this afternoon, so I went to the 5 pm CrossFit class.

    Today's WOD (Tues Sept 6):

    3 rounds for time:
    800 m run
    30 sit-ups
    20 kettle bell swings (I used a 25 lb kettle bell)

    Finished in 20:45. Wow, that sounds slow, but I was about in the middle of the finishers. Then again, we just watched the Track & Field World Championships, no wonder it sounds so slow. Those people are AMAZING.

    Week Oneish progress:
    Cardio 4/4. Pushups 60/70. Yoga/Pilates 0/0
    How does that affect my 'cheats' presently if I will be able to finish the pushups and yoga/pilates at the very end of the challenge?

    @_@ What a bummer of a week for me. My work schedule has tried to foil my plans, but fortunately I get my motivation from Team Rocket and keep trying anyways.

    I missed yesterday.. Working close every night is no bueno. :c But I think 12 hours a day and PT every day in training will make up for the wacky schedule right now.

    wow this is like chaos in here, I am going to post in my own blog then summarize and post only once a week here.

    k update from me:

    Thurs - Sun (Sept 1-4):
    Thurs: 5483 steps
    Fri: 6852 steps
    Sat: 4243 + one hour bike ride
    Sun: 6109 steps

    As I mentioned before, I am using the first week as a benchmark week. My goal is 10000 steps a day, exception of one day. Now, knowing I am averaging between 5000 - 6000 steps a day, I have to figure out how to double that, plus likely 1/3 of those steps are non-aerobic steps. I have bought a book on the topic to guide me, hope to get it this week (gotta love Amazon.com used books lol!)

    Also, to do stretching vids 3x a week to increase flexibility. And then, add appropriate goals as we go along.

    Nutrition, that is seldom my issue. I am eating a Nutritarian diet, with the exception of having meat twice a week, a small chocolate treat and a small amount of cheese occasionally for a little flava.

    I've been updating here cuz although it will be chaotic with all of us, I didn't want to annoy the other forum members with so many exercise threads floating around. I dunno which is better. <shrug>

    I figure I'll update here every time I work out, and then summarize the week's workouts (Mon-Sun) every Sunday or Monday to make it easier for @Zoom to keep track.
