Thanks to Bryce (who has a wonderful blog and is a frequent commenter on Keith's blog) I've been trying to get the feeling of "weightless-ness" when doing a pull up. I'm trying to do a very quick pull up. No kipping.....just using my back muscles in the most efficient way. I'm using a backpack with and extra 25 pounds in there and doing mini sets of 2 to 3 very fast ones.
It's working so far as I notice it's getting easier. This in an effort to learn the "muscle up"
My last stats as follows:
Dips 36 and 4
Pull ups- 17 and 3
Push ups 22, YES! When I first started I could not bust out more then 5 after the dips and pull ups.
Muscle Ups 0
First off let me say that I'm really enjoying it. I'm coming in with an average pace of about 7:30.
Besides from regular sprinting, I have not "run" in a long time. 1st mile is usually in the 7:30 range, second one faster at 7:05 and then the last one around 8 minutes or a tad below. A little more then 4 weeks before race day. Since I shared with you all that I love my music, I do run with my ipod shuffle and it's amazing that when a good song comes on that it puts an extra "bounce" in your step. This weekend I will do a barefoot 1.5 mile beach run. I would like to run the 5K in under 23 minutes.
You will have to settle for a phone picture, but wanted to show you how my local sushi restaurant serves me Ikura/salmon roe sashimi style. I think I'm the only person in there that orders it sashimi style, when I first asked they were not sure how to serve it, but one of the guys figured out to put it in nice little cucumber "bowls". This is one delicious lunch and the salmon fish eggs are a great source of K2.
Feel Good Living thought of the day;
Pay attention......everything is connected. So try not to get to upset with people, we are all here to learn.....from one another.
