I’ve started a very little weight lifting habit I will build upon
August 27, 2018
I can’t tell if it’s doing any good, having all of these weights and equipment around me. I just hope and assume that if I throw around both heavy, light, and body weights and make my heart work a little bit, every other day, then I’ll eventually become pretty strong and pretty fit. I feel like this is going to be a tortoise race.
My pad’s a weight room
August 26, 2018
In my little eighth floor studio apartment, I have a Concept2 rowing machine, a LifeSpan treadmill desk, a dip bar, a simple bench, a Swiss ball, a Bosu ball, a giant duffle sandbag, resistance cables, TRX straps, a pull up bar, push up bars, an ab roller, a set of 12kg and 24kg kettlebells, 16kg, 32kg, 8kg, and 40kg single kettlebells, two light medicine balls, and a bicycle. I think that’s it.
Why men shouldn’t stop running

For those of us who aren’t naturally as smooth as a dolphin or who aren’t religious about their waxing or manscaping, it takes a couple days of running for all the hair in your running shorts to be brutally torn out by the roots; after which, it’s all smooth sailing.
During those inaugural days, diaper rash for days. The worst kind of crotch chafe, chub rub, crotch rot, thigh rubbing.

I realised that I run like a snowshoer without snow or snowshoes! Made 4 miles again! Very lovely, show, cool, meander, all the way to Shirlington and along 4 Mile Run then to Walter Reed.
