Hapkido and Stronglifts

Tonight, I went over to Red Dragon MMA and participated in class.  It had been way too long and I feel like I’m starting all over again.  It was a great stretching and cardio workout though!  Still nursing my shoulder a bit, but I am building up my shoulder strength and am able to push out some real push-ups.  It’s feeling pretty good.

After I got home tonight, I got under my weights and did workout A of Stronglifts 5×5.  Today is day 6:  Squat @ 75 lbs, Bench Press @ 60 lbs, reverse curls, push-ups (in addition to what I did in Hapkido) and reverse crunches.  Overall, it felt pretty good!

I haven’t mentioned much about the last few days, just haven’t felt like writing.  I’m not a blogger by trade so trying to be in the habit of writing out everything I do is very different for me, so let me catch up a bit.

The other night I went with my wife for a nice walk.  We took our dogs with us.  Wysiwyg, our Border Collie did pretty good.  The old girl is a bit out of shape but I want to start walking with her more.  Odin, our out of shape, overweight mix breed mutt didn’t do as well.  He tired out fast and kept the pace fairly slow.  Poor guy.  We’ll be getting out with him more often, but I had to give him some recovery time.  By the time we got home, he went to lay on the floor, but couldn’t lay very gracefully.  He just let his legs out to the side and dropped.  He stayed there the rest of the night.  I think he’s had enough recovery time and tomorrow I think we’ll take him out again.  I’d love to get his weight back under control.
