I’m alright…

Tough week to get anything done. Things were so busy that I was literally squeezing in anything when I could. Sasha has been going to Physical Therapy for knee pain for two weeks, and has a set of exercises as well. She has been pretty good at following them, so I’m proud of her.

I have been reading the Kettlebell book by Pavel Tsatsouline, and starting some of those drills and exercises. I also found two more of his books at the used book store, which helps since he cross references the books for various techniques. I really like his sections on core and abs exercises, since weak core causes a lot of problems in working out, and in regular life. Since I have had back pain before, these should help with that.

I’m down another pound or two. And according to the Dalai Lama, I will have total consciousness on my deathbed. So I have that going for me.
