*Crickets*

I got in another 5K of rowing for 55K total.

I did sprint 8 on my fixie today on the way to teaching my CF classes. Interesting in traffic.

Finished week one of IF/Zone/Paleo, I lost a few pounds (178.5) and took off an inch from my waist (37, still quite fat).

It's times like this that I have to keep perspective and remind myself that when I started this journey I had a 43 inch waist and weighted 215. Not to mention my general physical incompetence. It is tough, because I was at 33.5 waist and 163.5 about a year ago. I guess I should feel good that, approaching 42 years old, I'm still improving in many areas.

Yes, you should ;-)

And a couple pounds and an inch is great progress - you shouldn't loose more than that in a week.

Wow. Don't tell my boss, but I just spent, like, a half-hour reading through your blog. You've got some great stuff going on here! I'm interested in this "rehab row"... I know you had an injury, but I'm wondering how I could apply this concept to improve my rowing skills. Because I am nowhere NEAR a 20 minute 5K.

Amen to that!

I know it can be tough, but it's best to look forward and focus on your current situation.

As long as you are always trying to improve you have the right out look on life.
I am always improving my mind and body. Staying positive is the key.
