2/14
Last week, gtg push-ups in my office during the days.

Today,
5-minute warm-up with Tekki Shodan. 4x2-minutes rounds of hitting the heavy bag, with 30 seconds of rest in between. About 6 minutes practicing kicks, mostly mae geri, against a smaller, lower heavy bag. Finally, C&P: (5/5, 4/4, 3/3, 2/2, 1/1)x24 kg.

In other news, my wife is now in week 40. The kid could come at any moment.

My daughter, Victoria, was born just over a week ago. She and my wife are both doing well. I came down with a cold due to lack of sleep, but that's getting better. I was able to lecture for 9 hours or so over the weekend without losing my voice.

Today, I went for a short run with Rufus and did some pushups.

Thanks, Mickey.

This morning, I warmed up with Tekki Shodan.
4x2-minute rounds on the heavy bag, with 30-second breaks between each.
5 minutes alternating between mae geri (10 per leg) and rib-level upper cuts on a lighter heavy bag hung about 30 degrees off vertical. (A proper mae geri angles up into the person being kicked.)
C&P: (5/5, 4/4) x 24 kg.

3/8
Warmed up with Tekki.
4 x 2-minute rounds on the heavy bag.
5 minutes of kicking practice on the other heavy bag.

In other news, my little girl had her two-week checkup earlier this week. She's bulking up at a good rate, which is not surprising. Apparently, breast milk has a lot in common with Muscle Milk.

During the week, I've been doing push-ups gtg-style in my office, in addition to the usual walking and stick-beating.

Today, ran 1.5-2 miles, with one stop for the dog.
Then C&P: (5/5, 4/4, 3/3, 2/2, 1/1) x 24 kg.

4/23
I've been doing push-ups in my office, working in the yard a little and going for the occasional run with our dog; but I've decided to get back to the gym. I'm going to start going a few times per week, but volume and intensity will be consistent with my continuing lack of sleep.

Today, warmed up with 10x55 goblet squats, and 10/10x35 DB snatches.
DL: 2x5x185.
DB Incline BP: 2x5x40.
DB Rows: 2x(5/5)x75.
Incline sit-ups: 2x10.

In other news, my daughter continues to do well. She's growing like a weed and becoming more interactive each day.
