Good back/bicep workout; The mental side of dealing with long-term injuries.

I had a great back and bicep workout yesterday afternoon. I’ll probably continue to do weight training workouts in the afternoon for the next month because I can’t strength train right after my physical therapy sessions: I have to ice down my shoulder as soon as I get home, and by the time I’m done with that it’s time for me to get to work. Even after an hour of physical therapy and a fairly… [Read more]

Another month of physical therapy starts this morning.

I’ll be going for another month of physical therapy starting this morning. My appointments are at 7:00 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so you can expect very brief daily news update on those days for a while. I’m running late, so I’d better get moving. Have a good day!

Typical busy Monday ahead + dentist.

I’ve got an extra busy Monday ahead (one of my co-workers is out of town), plus I’ve got to take a couple hours off this afternoon for an appointment with my dentist. The rest of the day is going to be packed tight – but not so tight that I can’t get my workout in, of course! It’s cardio time – have a great day!

Shoulder pain cancels workout; Sunday plans.

I had some shoulder pain yesterday as soon as I started to lift. It wasn’t an easy decision, but I decided it would be stupid to go on lifting. I have another month of physical therapy ahead, and I don’t want to do anything that might derail my progress. It sure is going to suck if I wind up having surgery after all this… After my workout was cancelled yesterday, I had to do something… [Read more]

GPS system installed in S2000; WiFi; Upper body weight training.

I installed my GPS system in the S2000 yesterday. I took some photos this morning and updated my S2000 picture gallery with the new shots. There are three new pictures: 1 2 3. I’m really happy with how the project turned out! I think it looks incredible, and everything works perfectly. No more getting lost! One of the coolest thing about the 802.11b iPAQ is that no matter where I go there are usually several… [Read more]

Legs STILL sore; My upcoming vacation; Friday & weekend plans.

The longest my legs have ever been sore after a workout is ten days. That happened when I first started strength training, way back in early 2003. I may break that “record” because today is the 9th day since my June 17th lower body workout and I’m still sore! I was so happy I could lift again that I gave myself an extra tough workout. Yesterday I gave my abs a serious pummeling, so today… [Read more]

Legs still sore; iPAQs & Bluetooth & GPS (oh my!)

My shoulder physical therapy doesn’t resume until this coming Tuesday, and my legs are still sore from last Thursday’s lower body workout (my first since the hernia surgery), so today I think I’ll do some cardio and ab work. Lisa and I will be on vacation from July 10th through July 18th. In all Likelihood the web site won’t be updated during that time – at least not every day. Even though I won’t be… [Read more]

Another month of physical therapy; Swirl marks.

My insurance company approved me for another month of shoulder physical therapy. Making the time to go is a pain, but the therapy does seem to be helping quite a bit. I’ll still be going on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. I have to be there by 7:00 AM, so you can expect brief daily news updates on those mornings for a while longer. This morning I’m taking the S2000 to the dealer (again) so they… [Read more]

Work is kicking my butt, but at least I can lift weights!

Unfortunately things at work are even more busy than I predicted they would be. I’m going to cut this update short and get my workout in (back and biceps) before my phone, pager and Nextel start in on me. I don’t really care how busy and stressful things get at work – at least I can lift weights again! I’m happy. I hope my shoulder continues to improve…

Another Monday, another busy day ahead.

I had a fun & relaxing weekend, but now it’s time to get back to work. This week’s going to be really busy and stressful. I’m going to go get on the elliptical for an hour and get my mind ready. Have a great day!
