      You wish! You just want 50% extra time on the axe!

          I would have the utmost respect (and fear) of a woman with an axe

            Io6 stephenphillips42 Fremen AnnieW Thanks all!

            As planned today was an off day. Later in the day I did day 9 of Spartan Trials at a level I, so that I have a bit more time tomorrow morning (did 50 pushups for this program).

            We also did a walk around midday, but a pretty relaxed night.

            Game night!

              This morning I did part 2 of day 10 of 30 Days of Change to a level I before everyone woke up, then did Day 9 of Fighters Codex to a level I. I was surprised that this took 40 minutes, so I ditched the plan for a longer run than what 30 Days of Change called for, and decided to go for the minimum of 21 minutes (as I don't really sprint, I just combined the time). I chose a route nearby at a park called the Bluffs which is not surprisingly mostly uphill. I am not sure about the distance and elevation gain, the mapping site says 5 m of elevation gain which is wrong, and the run just goes to a big parking lot so I am not sure where the distance cuts off, but it says that it is 400 meters one way. I did that 3 times roundtrip and then added a short dog leg of another 500 meters to make up the rest of the time. It took me 21:02.

                    Belerith AnnieW It is pretty weird for me, after having lived the last decade in a big city, to be able to be inside the city where I live, yet it looks like complete wilderness.

                    Tonight we did a level I in each of 60 Days of Cardio Day 19, 90 Days of Action Day 28 and Day 29, and Hero's Journey Day 19.

                    We also did one video - At Home Love Handle Workout from Lucy Wyndham Read.

                    Pushups for the day was 190, though 180 of them I did through the combos in various programs, so it is different to have done 1 pushup 180 times.

                      I like how you spend the money won in the fitness app on stuff that further helps you staying fit. (And I absolutely agree that mint+chocolate is a great combination)

                        Mianevem It has been fun, especially to get a couple of things that I would never think of buying otherwise.

                        I have been waking up early these days, as we are nearing the solstice, and I guess I am a little used to being up when the sun is up. This often gives me a bit of time in the morning to myself. This morning I did one short workout that we had done before, and then just built my step count for the day, somewhat boringly inside. I found last month to aim for 400,000 was a bit challenging (although I made it) because it meant constantly looking at the step counter when I might have preferred to be doing something else. Anyway, I still do try to get my steps in, and today I did 6,530 (5.3 km) before the rest of the family woke up.

                        I could have done Fighters Codex or Spartan Trials instead, as they are my morning programs, but I did them later. I did Day 10 of Spartan Trials around noon to a level II, and then did Day 10 of Fighters Codex in the late afternoon, before our evening walk. This called for 1,000 punches, and I added 10 pushups every hundred. I also got ahead on the side leg raises for Hero's Journey for the evening, adding in 200, and doing the same with the pushups,

                        For the evening workout we did Day 20 of 60 Days of Cardio to a level I, Day 30 of 90 Days of Action to a level I. My wife hadn't done any side leg raises yet today, so I did another 200 with her, and got to 400 (level III) in Day 20 of Hero's Journey. With this we stopped for 10 pushups every 50 leg raises. I finished with 190 pushups for the day. I have been doing decent numbers on the pushups recently, and this pushed my average up to 114 per day.

                        We did one video - Kat Musni's 15 Minute Killer Bodyweight Abs Burnout. We had been trying to do one of her videos for a while, but they tend to be on the long side. This one was shorter (15 minutes) but pretty challenging at times.

                        We finished earlier than expected, so we played on game of table tennis (which I lost).

                          Last night when I was looking up today's training plan, I saw that there was 60 minute of cardio for 30 Days of Change Day 11, and I thought I read that there was 60 minutes of cardio for Hero's Journey Day 21. I read it wrong, as I was looking at day 25 by mistake, today was supposed to be sprints. Anyway, I combined the two together into 120 minutes of cardio (I will just swap Day 21 and Day 25 of Hero's Journey). Two hours of running equates to around 21 km, which is the distance of a half marathon (21.0975 km). I tweaked my left calf again last night doing 100 calf raises, so I knew that if I was going to make this distance that I needed a flat route, and so I headed to the waterfront, which has a negligible elevation gain. I am used to doing a 2.4 km route there three times in about 40 minutes, so I just did the route 9 times instead for somewhere around 21.6 km. I did cut one minor corner a few times, mostly to take advantage of extra shade, but it would not have added up to more than 100 meters. My time was 2:01:57. I think it is either the second or third longest run of my life (my longest was 24.7 km).
