    PETERMORRIS966 Thank you.

    Today I went to a different exercise park (with adjacent playground) earlier in the day. It was evidently a little more worse-for-wear than the other parks I have been to around the city, as the posts that were holding up the pullup bars were loose making for a shaky experience. I did 30 pullups in total, most of them there, though a few at the playground.

    After my wife got home from work I did one of the runs that I had planned while living in this neighbourhood (though my total remaining didn't change as I planned another one when I got home). It was 6.7 km, which I ran in 39:55. This route is essentially the same (with only small route variations) to the one that I ran when I was in university, so it is a route that I have run a lot, though never had any GPS data on.

      This route looks super nice for a run. Also, do people not come outside when it gets a little bit cloudy or is it already very cold up there? (:

        motionaction I think that this is more of a function of the pictures that I take and post. In general this is a very active city though, an hour later the same path would be full of cyclists making thei way home from work, which while common enough in Europe, doesn't happen very often in North America.

        I got the boys out to a playground around midday, and did 30 pullups there on a fairly narrow grip circular part of the structure, which was the only place that I could grip and have clearance for my legs.
        I noticed today that yesterday I passed 10,000 pullups since I started tracking them last August.

        My step count was not as high today as some days (just over 10,000) but I noticed something interesting thanks to the FitBit. I sometimes take the boys out for a walk (I did this morning to do a bit of shopping) but this afternoon we went to a museum after my wife got home from work. I suppose because the boys have no inhibitions there (no vehicle traffic) that they just run all over the place. The FitBit recorded the entire time that I was at the museum as a "brisk walk". Good thing that the tickets were free because my wife and I didn't really take much in.

        Tonight I did Ultimate Fighter (level I) and Home Upperbody Tone (level I). I had to add 30 more pushups to get to 120 for the day. I haven't been doing as many workouts from the database recently, and I can feel it when I am forced into doing things that are outside of my base exercises.

        I don't usually post specifics in terms of pushups, but I made a tidy graph with my pushups this month.

        It was an odd month for sure for fitness, but I kept up pretty well. It is a bit weird not having an exercise room anymore, but that is really mostly the same as most people, so I don't have much to complain about. More so, the move threw me off some of my regular habits. Food intake was a lot worse, with lots of visits to people and the need to eat in restaurants while in transit. It also became pretty hard to maintain my streak of water consumption. I was trying to maintain at least 7 glasses of water per day, but it was not possible while moving around so much. I was still hydrated pretty well, but I don't count other sources of hydration towards this count as a rule, because it is also related to nutrition and digestion. It is odd that I have maintained my pullup average even while having to find new ways to make the total. In fact my monthly total is only about 65 off from August, which is not bad considering that August has an extra day. My step count this past month was the best that I have had outside of working the construction job last year in the month of October, which in this case was more difficult with only a 30 day month. The move helped with a 30,000 step day, but I really tried to stay active throughout, especially on days when I knew that I was going to be doing lots of driving. I managed to maintain my streak (started on July 25) of more than 10,000 steps per day, but it will probably be harder to maintain going forward as I am heading into the colder months where we spend more time inside. Anyway, once I get the exact figure (it is over 450,000 steps for the month), I will add it to the World Walking app and finally finish off the Nile Walk that I have been working on for about a year.

                        The boys and I did a playground before noon. It was the nearby one with the small exercise park, and between those bars and ones at the playground, I managed 33 pullups. I did do 6 on rings at the playground part and they were much more difficult. I guess having the static bar is a benefit to how your body moves.

                        I took it easy later, and only did Upperbody (level I) though as usual, I swapped out knee pushups for regular pushups. I also added 30 pushups.

                          10,000 pullups is amazing and I love how well that represents a little a day adding up over time. (Not that 30+ a day is "little" when it comes to pullups!)

                            Zastria Just a reminder that we don't need lofty goals to achieve progress, just got to keep moving every day.

                            Family was in town for a visit which threw off any exercise plan that we might have, as did a lot more rain. I didn't really get to do any exercise until later on in the day, and for the second time recently the step counter on my phone somehow got paused, so I lost a number of steps (based on discrepancy between FitBit and step counter, about 1000 steps). I still ended up over 10,000 for the day

                            I was wondering what exercise to do tonight, and then noticed that a new dumbbell workout was in the database and answered my question. So I did Strong & Beautiful (level I) and I added the move of the month from my wife's fitness magazine, a kneeling hip thrust with dumbbell and resistance band.

                            I also did 24 pullups, though I had to do them in the stairwell because it was dark and rainy by the time I got home. These are somewhat more painful because of the grip. Also did 100 pushups.

                              The day didn't go exactly as planned, partly due to the constant rain. We did a family walk for about an hour, but missed our bus, which in turn made us late for lunch, which in turn made us late for nap. The original plan was to wake up and do a run, but by this point it was going to be too late to do the run that I had planned. So instead I decided to go to the nearby exercise park and to do Ninja Warrior (level I). This has to be one of the most difficult workouts in the database, with a total of 120 burpees with full pushup and knee tuck jump. I just paced myself through the burpees. There was another person at the exercise park, and he asked me some questions about pushups which helped to have a mini break as well as I showed him a pushup with superhero hold. I was happy that I waited to do this workout where I did, as the mulch was a pretty good surface for so many burpees. I made a decent groove in the mulch from kicking back on the burpees. I did 10-9-8 on the pullups and 10 leg raises each time. I added 9 more pullups at the end.

                              Step count for the day was over 14,000 thanks to the midday walk and later walk to the park.
