    Nice! A double shot of Otis. And one more...
  2. I've lifted every day this week, so I did a boxing workout this morning. Warmed up with some jump rope. Did 4 rounds on the heavy bag, 2 rounds on the speed bag, 3 rounds on the double-end bag, slip rope and footwork drills, medicine ball throws, and finished up with some core work(Roll-Outs and Hanging Leg Raises).

    This picture doesn't really fit the thread, but it's one of my favorite things on the interwebs. "Yoda, the college years."

    I failed today.

    You may find in time that being exposed to others smoking actually enforces your own quit. That's been my experience. I've gone from being indifferent to others smoking to being repulsed by the smell of cigarettes. I smell cigarette smoke now and there are no longings or romanticizing, just disbelief that I used to smoke. Stay the course. Focus on your goals. Trust the process.
  5. I did a hodgepodge of exercises for a workout this morning. Did some Front Squats and Romanian Deadlifts. Got in a bit of work on the Olympic rings doing Chin-Ups, Dips, and Roll-Outs. Finished up the morning session with some work on the campus board: Ladder Climbs and Static Holds. I've been winging it in the gym lately and like the flexibility it affords. However, I'm looking to start a more structured program next week...Get back to training rather than just exercising.

    Happy Valentine's Day!!!

    Happy Valentine's Day to all who ride the Train. And to my secret paramour, I don't like to kiss and tell so for the sake of confidentiality I will call her Loreen from Diverpool, I was thumbing through a catalog and found the perfect Valentine's gift for you...
  8. I've been adding in some "strongman lifts" to keep the workouts more interesting. This morning I did: Trap Bar Deadlifts, Sled Pushes and Pulls, Farmer's Walks, and Sandbag Carries. Finished off the workout with intervals on the rower and a brief mobility session.

    Who's on the train...

    Name's Boo. Quit killing myself with the smokes back on March 9, 2016. Quit for a variety of reasons. However, the loss of control over my own life was my primary motivation to quit. Cigarettes dominated my entire day to a point where it felt like the smokes were steering the ship and I was just along for the ride. I'd had enough of that nonsense. Biggest piece of advice: keep it simple. Quitting smoking could not be more simple. Don't put things in your mouth and light them on fire. You don't have to do anything, you just refrain from doing that one thing. About me...I spend a lot of time throwing tennis balls in the backyard...now would be a good time to mention that I have a dog who loves to fetch. I enjoy running around in the woods, climbing things, and paddling canoes. I like to pick up heavy stuff, what most folks call weightlifting. I've recently started studying the philosophy of the Stoics. I listen to a lot of music, but have no musical ability of my own. I enjoy dirty jokes. And as I get older, I really appreciate a good night's sleep and a pair of comfortable socks.

    It wasn't me. Great video though. On the topic of talented chicks...I'm pretty sure I've posted this one before, but what the hell...It's worth another listen.
  11. Did a light workout today. Started with some steady-state work on the rower. Strength work consisted solely of bodyweight exercises: Box Jumps, Walking Lunges, Pull-Ups, Dips, and Roll-Outs. Finished up with a mobility session. I was looking to get myself primed for tomorrow. I'm doing a trail run from North Chickamauga Creek up to Big Soddy bright and early in the morning.

    Welcome to the lido deck Catlover. Congratulations. I got here late. Most of the good cat memes were already taken, but I liked this one...
