Half a league, half a league, half a league onward. Into the valley of ripped abs rode the 200!

With apologizes to Tennyson, of course.. I like that one.. :)

Anyway, I did my exhaustion test for the 200 sit-up challenge and got to... 200!

Yeah, so the last 100 was a bit slower than the first, but they're all banged out now.

Of course, I really need to get back to the pushup challenge.. sigh.

Anyway, Tuesday I did a bike workout.. wound up doing 8.15 miles in a half hour. It was the 'hill program', level 5. I think I can bump it to level 7 or so next week. But, my legs felt a bit worked out, so that was good.

Wednesday I ran outside. In shorts. Awesomeness. It was right around 50 degrees. The snow was melting. I couldn't have asked for better.
However, apparently I must either look like a complete dork, or people have forgotten that pedestrians can be on the road. The number of stares I got while running was phenomenal. Whatever. I did 5, and truly enjoyed those 5 miles.

Today, apart from the situps, I did 3 awful miles at the gym. Completely uncomfy, but oh well. I think I'm just jonesin' to stay outside now.

Tomorrow I have a 15 miler scheduled, and I'm going to have to do that outside. The forecast is for 32 degrees, so I'm not particularly looking forward to that aspect, but what can you do? I haven't decided on my route yet, either. I'll probably just wing it, and make sure to bring my phone, just in case.

Speaking of phones, a buddy of mine sent me this. For Android powered phones, you can integrate GPS, Google Maps, and Google Docs to track your runs and such. That's the bomb.

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone. Happy Valentine's Day, too.. (although, you should really do nice things for your significant other every day)

Have a good weekend, and keep on rockin!
