Ship’s Log–January 28th


I’ve decided to try something new on the fitness front, at least until the weather warms up enough for my running trails to clear. In addition to my daily challenge (Push ups this month, next month to be determined in the next two days), I’m going to add in several minutes of alternating umping rope and running stairs. I tried it out this morning, and the workout left me as sweaty as a good run, and I hope that it will serve to preserve some of my cardiovascular fitness through this unusually cold winter.


In the morning, 8 rounds or so of jumping rope for the count of about 200 and running a flight of stairs, followed by 38 pushups. In the evening I took a 1 hour BJJ class.
