I'm training and keeping it under control

I'm back on track.  Friday and Saturday (while travelling), I made it to the gym. Sunday was travel. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, I've gotten up early and made it to the gym. Not massive workouts but a good foundation. Today, ten minutes of machines, 20 minutes on the eliptical, then five on the stair climber. I do the eliptical with two minutes slow, one minute very fast.

Plus, I made it to class Monday and Tuesday night. I'd say I'm doing about 75% to 80% of what I should do in class.

As part of this, I'm not spending some much time worrying about my little aches and pains.  I'm cutting down on time at the chiropractor and in the jacuzzi and focusing more on exercising and stretching.  I am falling back on aspirin and ibuprofin (I'm drinking lots of water) as a way of being less distracted by the problems.  Also, having less swelling help. The picture is of my medicine cabinet.

My goal simply is to be at 100% by the end of May, 190lbs, back  to dingo 4 x 25 pushups,  10 pullups, and working through class doing 100% at full intensity.  Ambitious but also important to my health and well-being. Stay tuned.  Thursday night is my first bugo class in awhile which is a humbling reality check of what sort of shape I'm really in.
