I always enjoy your variety of work. It’s well worth the read.

Much appreciated Mr. Crippler… Im trying to use winter to stay in shape instead of coming out of winter 5-7lbs heavy with sludge. Work from home due to Covid makes it challenging; I’m usually not good when left unsupervised!

Took today off as I was helping my son for a couple of hours at a job (of course he needed my help it was overhead work) !!! So I actually did this a few hours ago…added a few reps to squats… I also stopped and got 100lbs of sand for the new toy… So if the sun comes out I may load some and screw around…

Still have grippers and the dogs will want at least 2 more strolls…

Our daughter flew in from LA this AM so I picked her up got her covid tested and she good to go! She’ll be around for a week which will be nice…Dogs go bonkers every time she comes home.

Took the family out to dinner last night. Had a rack of lamb that was the bomb. Our daughter is in from LA, so my son and his girlfriend came down from Boston to take part ( and get a free meal) We had a nice time…

Worked the sandbag a little bit yesterday. Left shoulder, right shoulder, fireman and bear hug… about 1200 steps total…took a 1 min break at the halfway(iso) mark.

Bag has 70ish lbs in it… we got a bit of icing last night so I might to go outback to a fire access dirt road and try it there… the driveway and pool area are too slick.
