As you can see I managed to get my workout in. Better late then never I guess. I got home from work and the wife had made plans to East Side Mario's with my in-laws. So we were there from about 7:00pm to 8:30pm. I ended up getting the Seafood Linguine. It was not the best place for my diet but I ended up not eating any of their good bread they put out and just stuck to a bit of salad and my pasta. We went back to my in-laws house and watched "Get Him to the Greek" and didn't get home until around 10:30pm. I really wanted to get my "High" day in so I told my self I either workout right now or tomorrow morning at 4:00am. I figured there was no way I would have mustered up the motivation to get up that early so I opted to just get it done. I am glad I got it in and that I have a "No" and "Low" day to recover my body and hands from swiping.

My hands are a bit sore, I am trying to work on my grip as Dean suggested however I get pinching in the middle, base of my right palm. I noticed it more on the last few days of swiping. I am hoping that my few days of rest from the clubbells will help get them back to square one. After all I only have one more "High" day before it's the century test.  I am also telling my self to keep my elbows in when swiping, I do keep them in for the most part but I feel them wavering every once and a while. Not to the point where my form is really compromised though.

What an awesome fall morning and I got to start it off in the dark patrolling while the sun came up, and doing a little Intu-Flow. It's really too bad I am working this Thanks Giving long weekend but at least I work outside for the most part.

I don't really know what's planned for tonight but I would like to try to get my High workout in.

I guess it wont be long when I will be finishing off my Clubbell Black Book cycle and be getting back to TACFIT Commando Recruit Level 2. That was the plan for me when I started the density cycle anyways. Unless I come up with something else I think I will be going back to TFCDO. Weight loss wise I think this would benefit me anyways in changing it up and going back to the Tabata burst recover burst style of training. Of course this is all given that my knee feels good after a few practice session of TFCDO Level 2.

I'm very impressed that you find time to get your workouts in with such a demanding work schedule. And probably even more impressed that you are able to regularly make the time to go for long walks with your wife. Great stuff, really makes me redouble my efforts when I'm feeling a little low knowing that you can find a way to make it all work!

Good luck on getting back into TFCDO -- I've been toying with a few ideas to switch things up myself but I'm not really sure which way I'll lean. Maybe some kettlebell work in a 4x7, maybe some TFCDO, or maybe I'll focus a little bit more on preparing myself for indoor soccer in a few weeks.

Mike, thanks I managed to get in the workout quite late last night but it was worth every swipe! I try to make it work as much as I can. I have tried to make my life as "fit" a possible. I was inspired more so recently from a clip of Coach Sonnon I saw. He said something along the lines of. People are looking for different ways to cut costs with our recent economic down turn, One of those fees people see as a "convenience" or "just another added expense" is their gym memberships. People are not looking at their health/fitness as something of a priority. If you don't have your health you have nothing. You can have your job, your family etc but if you don't have your health nothing else truly matters.

I am striving to do everything in my power keep my self fit and healthy. I don't have children yet but when I do I want to instil that mindset in them to keep active and healthy.

I am starting to get excited about start TFCDO again. It will be a change and I think it's going to keep me in high gear for a while. If you need any help on picking what you want to work on, I am always here for an ear to help anyway I can. Let me know if you want any suggestions.
