Sounds like that's putting it lightly!

Nice week guys!  Ergo, congratulations on getting the genetic lottery.   I hope I'm able to go skiing when I'm about to turn 90, very impressive.

Nice week guys!  Ergo, congratulations on getting the genetic lottery.

Remains to be seen. My very fit and very athletic uncle on my mother's had a heart attack and died at 47. My mom showed the earliest signs of Alzheimer's in her 60s. So on that side, things ain't so rosy.

My dad will be 90 and still works in the garden and takes not a single pill of any kind - aspirin, vitamin, medicine. His brother was a chain smoker for 60 years, not into fitness at all, veteran of the Battle of the Bulge and died just this year at 93 and could crank out the NYT crossword puzzle until a few years ago. He quit not because of cognitive decline, but because he was bored - could do the Sunday puzzle in under and hour without a dictionary. One time told me, "Well I know all the rivers of Western Europe because I had to fight my way across them." So if I get those genes, I'm all set.

4/4 gym and 2 skateboard sessions

My local corner of world was getting to me today.  Stress turned to rage and I felt my fuses burning up.  I was very thankful that I had my conflict with the iron today -- putting it all into something really helps sometimes.

I'm on the Shovel Fit (tm) program for the foreseeable future.

Shoveled heavy consolidated snow for about three hours each of the last two days. Today has another few hours on tap. As many as I can stand to get things cleaned up before the next storm comes in... which will probably only drop 2 feet at our house, but they are saying 10 feet at higher elevations.

Also went skiing yesterday but took it easy.

Ain't that the truth. Sometimes before/after gym can be like a snickers commercial.

Hit 3 last week. Going to be shy this week b/c my gym is moving. Good enough?

Good enough for you is good enough for me!

This week's Shovel Fit program appears to be canceled due to rain (up to 9000 feet; we're only at 5500).

Well I put 3 in already anyway. Went Tues for round 2 since they were moving today. Went to help move for a while and got a solid workout doing so today for #3.

3 sessions, 2 weeks back. Last week, only 2 as Friday I was wiped out and took the day off of everything.

This week, I think I'm going to switch to 4 straight days M-Thurs. Off to a great, early start after the time change this morning. Will probably ratchet the time back to only 30 minutes until I adjust and am ready to add more.

4 straight sessions in the gym last week. Felt good man.

This week I've hit a couple snags with heavy early meetings on two days and primarily a quick skin cancer removal surgery has shut down any upper body workouts (or volleyball, etc) for 2 weeks. (Small basal cell carcinoma on my shoulder.)

I guess I'll pound legs a bit, but probably not 4x/week.

Hey Dras,  I am really glad you took care of that skin cancer!  Sorry that it is slowing you down this week, but it is a small price to pay for the peace of mind.  Last week was 4/4, this week I will probable not be able to go the full commitment.
