Travel and moving are not conducive to working out. Being on the road is hard on a diet. Best advice : do what you can and don't stress. is a long-term action.

Nice walk to work this morning in . Not my normal hotel. Lovely Flat Iron views.

Calves and tendons are tight - wouldn't want to start running right now.

Hardest thing for me is fitness when I travel. Hotel gyms are usually bad. Outdoor fitness is an option of course. But let's face it - it's lack of motivation that crunches it. And as importantly lack of routine. At home there is a wake up time, gym time, etc.

Thankfully this is coming to an end soon as we stop traveling end of the month.

you say? How about 4 days of lifting furniture 12 hours per day? I am wiped out.

Shocking how the running shoe industry has reverted to stacked shoes, huge drops, and selling bad form. I get it - is a tough adjustment. But the injury rates for long term success don't lie.

In a move to focus on fitness I bought a Garmin Instinct yesterday. Having this watch is intended to spur more hiking and running.

Lots of buttons to learn. At a minimum I'll get the step counter working.

Back at it after a few days of travel. Felt good except for lingering Achilles tendon injury.

Happy anniversary to my beautiful wife - a quarter century went by in a blink. Imagine what we do in the next 25/50+

What in the world is up with baby strollers these days ? Ginormous. Costco-sized tankers. 2000 straps. Water bottles. Why do you need that?

I wouldn't care but every stroller pilot seems to have the skills of a Seattle rush hour driver.

Pick your kid up for a change!

Travel / rest day. One of the hardest things for me to do is to stop working out once I get into the routine. In other words, rest days.

Rest days are important for recovery and healing. But I want to *lift*! Thankfully I have an imposed travel day and that takes care of the issue for me.

My teammate today is 25 years old, a police officer, and a fitness junkie. Thanks Everett for killing my cardio today :-)

I like team / partner workouts. The intensity is high as you don't want to be the weak link (even though everyone is chill about it).

Starting the plan for an event in December in Colorado. Ruck, ski, climb... worst case half marathon or similar. The goal is both personal motivation as well as getting some family members to come out and join us.

Oh... and get my lungs used to the altitude.

Anyone know a good dev or two in Boulder? I'm looking to hire. Full stack preferred , GIS experience is a huge plus.

Best way to have a decent mood ( for me ) is exercise. Very stressed with work and relocation coming up... but the gym provides a bit of respite.

Also spending more time with audiobooks.

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.
