After Memorial Day, we did not stop, contrary to the activity on this page. I appologize for the lack of posts, but the work has not ceased.
Traveling now and today started with a 3 mile run, work and then I had a little time this afternoon. I hit 1000 pushups for time
I have done this workout a few times while on the road. Here is a post about it (click here)
Last time it took me 42:37 by doing sets of 20. This time, I used a deck of cards and counted out 50 cards. Each card was a set of 20. I simply did the 20 and turned a card. This helped greatly as I didnt even worry about counting the total number, just focused on doing 20 at a time. This approach is exactly how I get myself through any tough obstacle, whetehr physical or mental. Break it into manageable chunks and start chipping away. Before I knew it, I was at 900 and pushed hard to finish strong. Today, I finished the entire 1000 in 35:47.
I brought a kettlebell with me and plan on a Dan John 500 swing workout as well as just working through some decks of cards with various exercises. I like to keep it simple when traveling and rarely ever go inside a gym. If I drive, I usually bring a couple of kettlebells, a sandbag, some bands and mobility tools. That works for me and leaves me hungry for heavy things when I return.
