Did another session on the Concept 2 today. Improved my 2000m time by 13 seconds- 2 minutes 40 seconds. Really felt my triceps burning towards the end. Now I've got the weekend off I'm going to slip in some more press up work- just a few sets spread throughout the day- and lay off the squat thrusts.

Hopefully listing some of my workouts online here will encourage me to persevere with this new regime. My other half has also started rowing too and knowing that she's working hard is also urging me on. I don't want her to get better than me and show me up!

Good show on the rowing.

I’m determined to start an exercise program too. I was doing pretty good about 3 years ago. I had just lot a ton of weight and was working out at a gym 4 days a week. At this point it has been a year and a half since I’ve been to the gym and I’ve put on a few pounds. Started doing the Adkins thing about 1 ½ months ago and am down about 12 or 13 pounds. So today I plan to hit the GYM – I figure with the 25 bucks a month dues I’ve been paying, I either have to use it or lose it. Rowing sounds like fun, but I don’t have a boat. I have a lake across the street so rowing is a very distinct possibility in the future.

Thanks John.

I'll be posting some sample weight training workouts this week- back and triceps/legs and biceps/chest and shoulders. Three days a week was plenty for me when I was doing weights.
If you have any particular goals let me know and I'll see if I can run up a training program for you.
