    I didn't make it to the gym at all last week. My new job tends to have a lot of last minute meetings so I need to go when I can rather than going at a specific time.

    Tues May 16, 2017

    Conditioning

    - C2 rower: 3 minute warm-up
    - 10 minutes each on treadmill, stairmill, elliptical

    My wife wanted a FitBit so I got both of us one for Mother's Day. So I can tell you that my average HR was 134 and peak HR was 148. A lot of the time was spent around 140 but the warm-up plus transitions brought it down a bit.

    Finn is doing great. He's been on solids for about a month now and getting the hang of eating finger foods. Rolling around like its going out of style but not crawling yet. My wife doesn't love the repetitiveness of being home all the time and right now is finding it to be a bit of a grind. She tends to be up and down depending on how well Finn is sleeping.

    I'm still navigating my new job but have realized it's fairly laid back so have started going to the gym more often. The one issue is that I tend to have more last-minute meetings so I just have to get to the gym when I can rather than trying to plan my weeks in advance. I still feel like I need to keep my trips to 1 hour total which only leaves about 35 minutes of gym time but it's better than nothing.

    Fri May 26, 2017

    Conditioning


    - Treadmill: 8 minutes (gym was so humid that a large vent was dripping on the treadmills so I jumped to ellipticals early)
    - Elliptical: 12 minutes
    - Stairmill: 13 minutes

    33 minutes total. Average HR was 134 but boy were my legs burning the entire time form yesterday's squats.

    I got the rest of my hockey schedule today and get to play 3 games in June and zero in August. I expected to get 4-5 regular season games so this is fine but I was hoping to get a couple in June and a couple in August. Oh well!

    My wife was the same. She got antsy with Charlotte and returned to work a little early, like 2 weeks.

    Those months when they're home all day drives them bonkers and I recommend doing whatever she wants no matter how insane it sounds. LOL

    Had some last minute stuff to do at work Friday afternoon so.missed the gym.

    Played hockey on Sunday and actually had a great game. Ended with 2 goals, 1 assist and +3 despite the team losing 9-6. We are short centers this season and it really showed. My line was the only line playing consistently well all game.

    My cardio felt good overall but I didn't have a lot of jump which kinda makes sense since I just been.doing LISS. Bette than gassing in the third period.

    I get to play two.more games in June before we have 3 late games to.end the short Summer season. Hopefully we have earlier games in the playoffs so I can.play a few.

    Hockey

    Played the first place team. We put up a good effort but ended up losing 6-3. They had one guy who was far too good to be in our division (13 points in 3 games) and he was the difference in the end. I had a good game, with 1 goal and 1 assist. Our top scorer was completely shut down and we were missing two of our better forwards so despite not being over-played we didn't really have many offensive chances.

    Wed June 14, 2017

    Conditioning


    Treadmill: 17 minutes
    Stairmill: 17 minutes

    Average HR: 132, Peak: 145.

    I went to a butter tart festival on Saturday and bought way too many tarts and thus have eaten way too many in the last 4 days. I feel like I put on the 2 lb that I'd lost since the beginning of May. Oh well, they are so good!

    Oh hey log, it's been a few weeks!

    Friday July 7, 2017

    Warmed up on the C2 and then did a circuit of bw squats, push-ups, and 60 lb barbell rows with an aerobics bar. Just wanted to get moving.

    Tues July 11, 2017

    C2 rower, dynamic stretching

    - Deadlifts
    45x10
    135x5
    165x3
    195x3
    225x3
    245x2
    255x2
    275x1
    275x1
    275x1

    So weak! Most noticeably my hands and my.forearms are sore tonight.

    - Bench
    45x10
    65x10
    75x10
    95x10
    105x10
    115x10

    That's all I had time for. In the Fall my GoodLife membership runs out and I'll probably join the gym in my office building. I expect it to kinda suck but it doesn't look that busy so as long as there is a squat rack and some free weights I'll be good.

    Took a few sets for my squats to feel okay. My legs are slightly sore today so I think this was a good amount to get started up with.
