    Congratulations on finishing Pathfinder, didn't you start just yesterday? It feels that way. Awesome job.

        lofivelcro It took me 4 days, though in reality, 3 of the days were for running, 4 for walking and one for meditation. In effect it was only really 22 day of exercise, as I do running and walking separately from my evening workout usually anyway.

        Zastria It was good! It was a little weird in certain ways, but I guess that was to fit with the story.

        Another work day for my wife so I didn't get up to a lot during the day. I still made it over 10,000 steps though.

        Tonight I did Tomboy, Back and Biceps (EC) and Because Abs (level I, EC). EC for Tomboy required 20 pushups minimum on 4 sets to fatigue with only 30 seconds rest. That goes down as another pullup workout that has an extremely high level for EC. After four days of 6 sets of "to failure" pushups I wasn't very keen on more tonight, so I only did 15-13-12-10. I added 70 more pushups. I did 9-7-5-5 on the four sets of pullups, but again they were a lot harder with only 30 seconds rest. I added 6 more as well, for 32 for the day. On every one of the abs workout I did the three sets of each exercise together.

              motionaction Rissa Thanks!

              Had five hard training days in a row so I decided to go with a lighter day tonight. I just hit 100 for pushups and 30 for pullups and did Limitless. Step count for the day was over 12,000.

                I finally figured out how to export the GPS data from my watch to my phone to my computer yesterday. So now I can see all of my runs in Google Earth. The part of me that likes running and the part of me that loves looking at maps have come together in unison now. I got to run today, though I was feeling pretty sluggish. Coincidentally, since I got the GPS watch some of my most common routes have had construction on them which has meant a route change, and therefore the maps that I am capturing are not 100% accurate to what I have done over the course of the past year. This morning I captured a tertiary route in the neighbourhood which I have done I think 4 times now. It is not my favourite because it crosses the busy highway (though I lucked out and got a green light on the otherwise long wait at the intersection). Distance was 6.0 km, and I didn't get to run exactly where I planned because of construction. Time was 27:06.

                  Congratulations on Pathfinding! The kids send their congratulations too, although they seem to think you spent the entire last few days 'playing the game' .

                    Io6 I would say that it is a fair assessment that I manipulated the process somewhat and didn't get the full benefit from the program. On the other hand, those were four pretty tough workout days.

                    Lots of movement for the rest of the day as we did a walk as well as being busy around the house. I ended up with over 16,000 steps.

                    Tonight I did Push and Pull (EC) and Meta Burn (level I, EC). I did 3 sets of 6 pullups and 3 sets of 5 chinups for the first workout. This puts me near the end of the pullup workouts. There are 43 total (it says 44 in the filter, there is one male/female duplicate) and I have four left. Two of those I would prefer to do outside (one has running and the other has knee tuck jumps) and the other two are somewhat advanced (front lever, muscle up) and I would prefer a proper pullup bar before I try these ones (for the front lever, one that is not over a concrete floor.) Surprisingly the side plank pushups were my least favourite part of this workout, as I haven't had as much problem with them in the past but did tonight.

                    The second workout was a new dumbbell workout, and I am thus keeping up with the dumbbell workouts as they come out. There are now 71 (one doesn't show up in the filter) and I have done all 71 at least once.

                    I added 30 pushups to the 90 from the workout for 120 for the night. I passed 80,000 pushups since I started counting them 617 days ago. Since cutting back on the pushups about a month ago, my daily average has dropped slightly to 129 per day.

                    As usual recently, my wife has been doing her own thing, but we finished with a game of table tennis.

                      About the love of maps: Yesterday I bought a puzzle book, themed of a Dutch atlas brand (though the atlas covers the world, and so do the puzzles). It's really cool, with questions of general knowledge about some places in that particular map, or to find something on the map, etc.

                        NancyTree That looks like fun, I will keep my eyes out for an English version of the same thing. In the mean time there are always geography quizzes on Sporcle.

                        Morning run today and again to capture the GPS data on a tertiary route (I have run some variation of this probably 5 or 6 times now). As with yesterday's route I generally avoid it because it crosses the highway, though as with yesterday I got lucky again and caught a green on what is otherwise a very long red light. It was a fairly slow pace, for 4.6 km in 29:55.

                              AnnieW Whirly Thanks! It is not that late, still within 30 days of when I started it.

                              At midday I got stuck at an appointment for maintenance for the car. It was supposed to be 60 minutes but that turned into 90 minutes. For a change I didn't have anyone else with me and for a change I was on foot, so I walked a 30 minute round trip in one direction to run an errand, and then a 60 minute round trip in the other direction for another errand. Combined with my run this morning not surprising that my step count was over 22,000. After the car was done I got to go to the dump and get rid of the old tires.

                              Tonight I did My Best Shot (level I, EC) and Abs Upgrade (level I, EC). I also added 100 pushups and 30 pullups.

                              Another game of table tennis tonight after we finished our respective workouts.

                                Another run this morning, and again to capture GPS data on one of my less common routes. To be fair, I would prefer it if the route today was a more common route, but I only discovered it earlier in the summer, and as I have to drive to it, there is less incentive to do it versus a route that I can start from home. It is a nice route, as it goes through a neighbourhood and then along a riverside path. The best part is that it doesn't cross any major streets so essentially no traffic. It is also a loop, which I usually do twice, but with a bunch of running days already accomplished recently, I decided to do only one loop for 3.0 km. Time was 17:29.
