        September 28 was day 971. 100 punches. Too much rain and thunderstorm activity to ride a bike. Also it was my annual mammogram screening day which takes a certain amount of desire to do physical things out of the picture.
        sept 29 was day 972. 120 punches.
        Sept 30 was day 973. Walked .6 of a mile as part of birdwatching, 150 punches.
        Yesterday was day 974. 100 punches.

          October 2 was day 975 of the streak. 24 minutes/4.15 miles, ran into the store, then 3 minutes/0.34 miles on the bike.
          October 3 was day 976. 30 minutes, 5.9 miles.
          Today, October 4th, is day 977.
          Classic warm up
          Strong and Beautiful workout, 10 lbs per hand, level 1- had to stop there because I could not keep the ten second hold with these weights and I do not have lighter ones
          Captain On Deck workout, level 3, 30 sec rest between sets
          1 minute nonstop punches for a total of 21 minutes 3 seconds heavy breathing/sweat inducing exercise; this is 3 for the week

              Yesterday was day 980. 150 punches before bed.
              Today is day 981. I am hoping to get out on my bike later, but no guarantees, so in the meantime:
              Classic warm up
              Epic Arms, 17 lbs per hand, but (20 alternating bicep curls + 40 punches) x5 rather than 10+20... so EC, I guess
              Not yet at 20 minutes for survey purposes but if I can get out on the bike it'll count
              ETA: 26 minutes, 4.49 miles, so 4 days of 20+ minutes hard breathing or sweat for the week

                October 9 was day 982, just barely; 160 punches before bed
                Today is day 983.
                classic warm up
                Peach workout, 2 sets 40 reps of everything except glute flexes (2 sets 10 of those) and V extensions (2 sets 20 of those), plus 2 sets 40 of lying-down leg lifts, so... EC. And 14 minutes for survey purposes.
                epic arms, 19 lbs pet hand- I upped the weight today- in sets of (20 alternating bicep curls + 40 punches). This brought the time up to 21:35 for survey purposes. One for the week so far.
                also, neck mobility workout

                      Today, October 15, was day 988. I had to work through all of midday on a vpn configuration instead of getting ro exercise or even sew. All I have exercise wise is 3 sets 12 calf raises, followed by 3 sets 12 wall pushups. Call it a rest day. I'll lift tomorrow.

                        Today is day 989.
                        Classic warm up
                        19 lbs, one arm dumbbell rows, 4 sets 8 reps per arm
                        15 lbs per hand, standing Arnold presses, 4 sets 8 reps
                        19 lbs per hand, close grip dumbbell bench presses (aka crush presses), 3 sets 8 reps
                        19 lbs per hand, bent over dumbbell rows, 3 sets 8 reps
                        19 lbs per hand, standing simultaneous hammer curls, 2 sets 8 reps
                        19 lbs per hand, dumbbell floor presses, 2 sets 8 reps
                        19 lbs per hand, dumbbell shrugs, 2 sets 12 reps
                        this is 22 minutes 3 seconds and since I have not yet done my survey for the week, and will probably be doing my exercises before the survey for a while now that we're moving into pre-6-PM sunsets, I am going to count this as four days of 20+ minutes sweat/hard breathing inducing exercise for the week

                          Today is day 990.

                          19 lbs in one hand, dumbbell rear lunges, 4 sets 5 reps per rear leg

                            Today is day 991.
                            Classic warm up
                            Lots of things were stiff from yesterday's weights, so in keeping with the idea that the best thing for DOMS is to get the stiff muscles moving again, I did the Peach workout today. 3 sets of 20 reps per leg (40 reps total) each on the leg extensions, swings, and side leg extensions. 2 sets 10 of the glute flexes, because I have no idea if I'm doing them right despite my best efforts. 3 sets 20 reps per leg (40 reps total) of lying-on-my-side leg lifts and clamshells. 3 sets 20 reps of V leg extensions.
                            21:11, so that's 2 for the week.

                                Today is day 993.

                                Classic warm up
                                goblet squats, 4 sets 8 reps, 22 lbs
                                Dumbbell stiff legged deadlifts, 4 sets 8 reps, 22 lbs per hand
                                Dumbbell plie squats, 3 sets 8, 22 lbs
                                Dumbbell hamstring curls, 3 sets 8, 22 lbs
                                Standing dumbbell calf raises, 3 sets 8 reps per leg, 22 lbs.
                                Planks, 3 of them, 35 seconds each
                                The first row of exercises in the Peach workout: 40 leg extensions (20 per leg), 20 side leg extensions (10 per leg), 40 leg swings (20 per leg). This was to make sure I actually hit the 20 minute mark, as I was faster this time than last time I did the weighted exercises. But with the Peach extras I did 21:38 minutes so I'm on 4 for the week so far for survey purposes.
