Friday was a shit show, but a good kind. Ended up going out and never got any real walking in.
Today has been busy. Got up early. Walked. Drank some coffee. Did a Jog/walk. Jogging is getting better. Slow as a turtle, but I can feel the legs and knees getting stronger. I'm starting to transition to just jogging (slowly) my regular route with my regular 100 step breaks.

Going to relax. Probably take a longer walk later in the day/evening.

Today turned into one of those completely unexpected days. Had no idea I would be out and end up at the gym. Got home late and really tired. Still managed to get in my personal program minimum. Which was the whole idea. I wanted to pick something(s) that I knew I could do any day if I just tried.

Tue 7/2
20 minute jog, jog 10, walk one, jog 10 (ends up being 22 minutes......)
Double KB clean and press 16s x 5 sets of 3
KB half snatch - 12kg x 6:00
---

I've dropped the AM pushups and squats. I'm not sure the daily dose of them were giving me what I needed. Shoulder was sore and never stopped being sore. Same with the left knee.....I don't know. Whatever.

I dropped the 10,000 steps as well. It's hot as hell here and trying to get in 10,000 meant pacing the house which is getting boring or going out and sweating my ass off. Which would probably be a good thing.

For the summer I'm going to focus on jogging, KBs, curl to presses, and yoga. Just mixing it up and having some fun.

Sat 7/6
Jog - home to bridge, normal 50 step breaks
slow - but a proper jog...not a walk/jog, and the legs felt good.

Back was sore and stiff yesterday. Might have overdid it by going M, T, W with KB work. Probably best to do every other day or at least no more than two in a row for now.

Sun 7/14
Rounds........
Two hand swing 16kg x 10
Jump rope double skip 40 turn
shadow box (various combo combinations)
YRG ignition/open hips back squat sequence...
35:00
---
Was supposed to run but it just didn't work out. Decided to try an "old school" (for me) combo workout. Idea was to just break a sweat, get some cardio spread across muscle groups, etc.

Loved it. I think I need to do this more. Throw in club bells. Do some DB work too. A few BW movement (sun salutations)... Just a random sort day now and then where the only idea is to spend a long time (longer than 35:00) moving.

Mon 7/15
Jog river path - home to 1st rest station, normal breaks - 50 minutes
--

I'm back baby. Still slower than slow. But this was my first goal. To get back to jogging to the rest station and back with my normal breaks. And today it was more often than not slow by choice. Consciously keeping the pace slow, taking deep breaths, etc.

The challenge now is to not push it too hard too soon. I've gotten back to this injury free, free of any soreness, etc. Keep the pace slow, space the run days, use KBs and what not to keep the endurance and strength up and just easy, easy jogging.

Tue 7/16

Jog/walk river path - home to 1st rest station.
Double DB curl to press 30s - several sets of five

Was going to do KBs today but my lady friend wanted to go on a jog. So we walked/jogged with my path. Really hot and my legs were tired from yesterday.

Finished with DB curl to press.
