Back at it. Took it easy on the load, tried for speed. Back squats have been rough for a few years now.

Hit the gym today. Didn't get the photo but it was a 30 minute gasser. Lots of movement, low volume so speedy. The air being muggy sure didn't help.

Working on good food and water today.

This was Thursday morning. Friday is a especially as work has me too busy to get to the gym.

Felt okay on the cleans for not having done them in a long time.

Yeah, back to the gym for a while. Felt good about 5*5 presses at 150#. My previous was 155# but with all the travel Im just happy to be close.

225# on front squats buy had a twinge in my right adductor. Boeah. Not squatting enough.

4th of July - not too bad on the goals. I use an app called Habits. When I am being healthy I do well. Then work, travel, stress hits and things get messy.

The gap on the food yesterday was buns with burgers. It.was the 4th is my excuse.

Kind of an odd workout. Not sure the 5*5 scheme worked well for the rows.

Did the pullups strict (ie no kipping). Tough on the old arms.

Back to Sasquatch. It was nice to get moving again. 30 minutes of movement. .

Did step-ups instead of box jumps to save the Achilles.

For travel and fitness - Lululemon shorts and pants are great.

But... they are made of plastic. I appreciate they are willing to discuss new natural fabrics.

Having a hard time getting back on track. Both Achilles tendons are sore and griping.

The one thing I *can* control is my diet. So that's the goal today - no grain. 120 oz of water.

Apparently my karma is causing glitches in restaurants. Stopped by Sun Mountain Brewery for a burger. Bloody Mary was great. Then no food. 30+ minutes (I was doing a crossword puzzle and didn't notice).

Ticket got lost. They apologized and comped the food when it came out so no harm, no foul.

I'm on a tear! Yesterday I saw Jersey Mike's is gone too.

Second time for breakfast at Whole Sōl on the mall. Want to support a new restaurant but... The breakfast bowl isn't very good. Not sure why I thought hemp noodles were a good idea (and it was cabbage this morning in any case). But takes forever. Bland.

Just waiting for Ruthie's to open so I can top it off with a breakfast burrito.

Good workout this morning.


I did not Rx this one, no way. Pretty happy with 17:52 and

225# deadlift
165# benchpress (should have went higher
135# cleans (should have done real squat cleans).

Dinner at River and Woods in tonight. Staff was clearly not on their game. Burger was... a step up from McDonald's. The missus ordered the salad + trout, got a salad. No forks and knives. Eggs were chewy. Honestly it felt like a place that could be good but had a seriously off night.

The trout, when it finally arrived, was really nice by the way.

I need to get in gear and head to Alfalfa's more for lunch. Crazy how much time I spend at other "quick" options in .

Sprints on an AirDyne bike. Calories are very different from the Assault Bike. The altitude and lack of fitness was challenging to say the least. Also battling an Achilles tendon injury so no running; I dislike rowing.


Bramble and Hare. Younger cousin of Black Cat.

Farm to table restaurant in . Menu changes almost daily.

SeaTac airport is an embarrassment. Honestly trying to be the worst airport in America. Lines out the door. Overwhelmed services. Randomly closed TSA lines.

Used to be a nice place.

Seems like Lyft is getting less reliable. System glitches have stranded me twice now. Customer support isn't responding. Growing pains for sure.
