      Today is day 99.
      I rode my bike 1.77 miles to the trainstation today. Weather permitting, I will ride it back that distance tonight.
      Core control day 30. 200 side leg lifts. This challenge is done.
      chest and arms day 14: 20 renegade rows, 5 sets. Began with attempt at 20.5 lbs per arm as I did not feel like changing plates. Was able to do all 5 sets at this weight.
      Total abs day 18: the plankening. Level 2.
      3 sets of 10-second isometric punches against the wall, ten per arm, for a total of 60. I am working up to 3 sets of 15 per arm.

          Today is day 100.

          Total abs day 19. Level 2.
          power up day 1. Harder than anticipated, but that's a good thing.
          1 set of 10 isometric punches per arm, 10 sec each; it's a recovery day after yesterday's increase.

          I'm going to go update my streak milestone now.

                Thank you!

                After some consideration I think I may drop the Chest and Arms challenge. I like the renegade rows aspect, and I normally like pushups, but I don't enjoy the 'to failure- now do it AGAIN- and AGAIN- etc' part. I understand that it's probably a better route to pectoral strength than arbitrary numbers; I just don't want to deal with 'okay, was that your max? Seriously, that was the best you could do? Thirty seconds then DO IT AGAIN' any more.

                Fortunately there is a new monthly challenge for June that looks promising.

                Anyway. Started today, day 101, with:

                Classic warm-up
                Epic Arms, 15 lbs per arm because that is what I have at home
                Punch Out! challenge day 1: 80 punches
                total abs day 20: lower back level 3
                power up day 2

                Will probably do bicycle riding later, we'll see

                    Thank you!

                    Today is day 102.

                    classic warm-up
                    Punch-Out! Day 2: 80 overhead punches
                    Power Up day 3
                    Started leg day workout. Got some protest from the top edge of the knee joint during early squats. Called up Knee Saver to be on the safe side. Did that.

                    Interruption for some time due to loud insistent cat. Also incoming message from Etsy buyer. But mostly cat.

                    total abs day 21, level 1. Interrupted by cat again but got to the end. Opted to stop here rather than do isometric punches.

                    ETA: bicycle ride. 9.79 miles, pause to buy cat food, 3.23 miles home.

                        Today is day 104. Mildly peeved with my innards today. If I ever meet anyone who wrote those reassuring 'your cycle will be irregular when you first start menstruating, but don't worry, it'll eventually settle into a regular four weeks' spiels in my health classes back in grade school I will punch them in the face.

                        Classic warm up.

                        Punch Out! Day 4: 120 overhead punches.
                        Was going to do Power 20 but I am not quite up to it right now so Epic Arms it is. Bonus: more punching. 20.5 lbs (9.2ish kg) per arm.
                        Power Up day 5. Knee pushups are very weird after doing regular and wide grip regular pushups for ages.
                        Total abs day 23, level 3. Moar plankening. Side plank holds a problem due to feet sliding on mat/stretching mat, but I managed.
                        1 set of 10 10-second isometric punches per arm.

                          Today is day 105.

                          punch Out! Day 5, 140 punches. Did this at one go, are we supposed to break these up?
                          total abs day 24 level 3
                          Started power up day 7. Left knee protested the bouncing micro squats. Will stretch and attempt again tomorrow.

                            Unless it says β€œin one go,” I think its okay to break up the punches into sets if you need to.

                              Great, thanks.

                              Today is day 106. I am not feeling the greatest today- the cycle thing- so I only did

                              Power Up Day 6. Not sure why I said 7 yesterday. I'm only up to day 6.
                              punch out! Day 6. 140 overhead punches.
                              total abs day 25.

                                Today is day 107.

                                Classic warm up.
                                power up day 7.
                                punch out! Day 7, 160 punches.
                                Power 20, 22 5 lbs (10.2 kg) per arm with 10 lbs (4.5 kg) for deltoid raises. Did ten tricep extensions per arm, not sure if that's right. Added 3 sets 10 each of deadlifts and calf raises too. Need to add more weight for those. Also need to adjust where plates are, the 10 lb plate got awkward during upright rows.
                                I have no desire to deal with active planks today. Total abs can wait until tomorrow.
