  1. Day 3.5 I did a short yoga video (~25 minutes), but did not do any of the other things I thought I might do on Friday. Ah well! It was a pretty good work day and I got through a lot, but still didn't finish all of the things I wanted to do, so I did work a tiny bit late. I had a beer during my team's virtual Friday happy hour and stretched for a bit between then, showering, and going over to QP's house. He made gua bao. 😋 Day 3.6 Saturday morning, I finished off the spanakopita, caught up on a bunch of #exscavaganza submissions, and then went to the gym to see the Saturd
  2. 😁 Ahh, that's great. I'm sure you could do some coaching without having to demo all of the time? But maybe not, I don't know how parkour classes work. Haha. But yay for realizing your goals before you even finish writing them. And FUCK YEAAAH, WINGS.
  3. Day 3.4 I took a short power nap to make up for my flagging everything right after work, and then got my butt back to the gym. Deadlifts: 3 x 305#, 3 x 315#, 2 x 325#, 1 x 330# (I kind of wanted this to be a double but I didn't quite have the oomph), 2 x 2 x 315# Deficit deadlifts: 4 x 5 x 245# Bench: 5 x 5 x 145# paused DB rows: 4 x 8 x 50# Ts, Is, Ys, and Ws: 4 x 5 x 5# + a set of sobbing (jk a little) I want to do some work with my deadlift set-up. It feels very inconsistent -- sometimes I can pull the slack out of the bar amazingly and everythi
  4. Thanks for the bday wishes! Oooh! I'm so excited you decided to play along as well!! 😁😁😁 VERY TRUE! The origin for it is... very strange and convoluted, but some of my friends refer to me as the queen of the birds sometimes, so this is especially apt! I even have a wine glass about it: Hahah, there is no pressure to play at all! But I think you (and maybe Ghostlet!) would still enjoy a few of them if you wind up having time and still want to participate. You have until the end of my Sunday -- and another friend told me they a
  5. 100% blame the Rangers. 😆 I looooove the concept of improving your community goals, but gosh doesn't that sound so much harder than trying to improve one's self? I guess that is what would make it a challenge!
  6. Day 3.2 My birthday was fine. I should have made real plans, but my only plans involved making and eating spanakopita. 🤷‍♀️ In the hub-bub about the scavenger hunt, I forgot about the fact that there would be an actual birth-DAY involved, ha. I was remiss to overlook that. But there were nice gestures abound, Mister California sent me flowers and donuts, my roommates got me pastries, QP sent me a cameo video from a GGBO baker he got for me (lol awww), and my friend dropped a bunch of desserts he made with his gf. I pretty much only ate pastry all day, haha. 🍽️ The cake tastes great.
  7. I have been considering adding a "personal dance party" mini goal soon -- because it's great and I miss dancing and just like more movement! Glad you realized your fatigue was from total lack of fuel. 😆 Hell yeah for friend hangs. 🤗 Heheh, definitely not the point! 😝 Glad you got an appt!
  8. It is... hard. I forgot that gymnastics feels like all of the forces of the earth trying to PULL YOUR BODY APART -- especially uneven bars, oof. My ankles/knees/hips are not used to the impact as much anymore, so I can't tumble as much as I would normally like to. Plus, my explosiveness seems to be pretty... low. I've been having difficulty generating the power I know I can. I assume it's all technique work and maybe some t2 fibers I need to redevelop. 🤷‍♀️ We do have access to a foam pit at one of our away gyms, which my home gym never had! I have yet to take much advantage of it, bu
  9. These are all very successful looking! Ooooh! That's excellent! Speed work might transfer over to strength better (explosiveness) but meh! Since it's a new habit, I would pick something that will get you to continue doing it. Jogging 30 minutes however often a week is totally valid for maintaining/improving cardiovascular health. If you think you'd like to run more, find a bridge to 10k program, perhaps? Love these clouds especially.
  10. I have nothing helpful to add, just that I am in this flexy training boat too. It's a lame boat. I do not like it very much. I like the work table approach!
  11. !!! Yay yay yay!~ I'm exciting you're playing! 😁 😁 😁 PERFECT PAIRING! Ha! Aw boo. Good thoughts to get you back to 100%! 🤞 it's a good fit.
  12. Day 2.5 I was definitely a bit sore from the deadlifts on Thursday, but squats were okaaaay, I guess. Squats: 2 x 3 x 265#, 3 x 3 x 245#, 5 x225# Stiff legged RDLS: 4 x 15 x 45# DBs Single leg glute bridges: 4 x 25 per side Dips: 4 x 10 Is, Ys, Ws, and Ts: 4 x 5 x 5# Ab stuff x some QP got us nice takeout dinner and gave me presents for my early birthday, including multiple pints of banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery and nice mezcal. 😱😍 Day 2.6 Saturday I went to gymnastics practice again! Wooo. I spent a while trying to get
