I went for a walk/run through muddy fields and hills today, I got really dirty and pushed myself so hard my lungs were burning. Good stuff :)

Later on (after some serious eating) I did some leg work.

Walking lunge with bar; front, back, side-to-side.

lunges:
40kg 10x4
60kgx10x2

squat:
110kgx5
150kgx5
170kgx5
180kgx3x2
90kgx15x4

Deadlifts (supposed to be SLDL but I couldn't keep straight)
90kgx10x4
80kgx10x4

Leg ext- 40kgx30x4
leg curl-40kgx20x4

Calf raise: 80kgx 20x5

I think that's right, I am writing this the morning after with not much sleep. My legs frickin hurt!

Oh I forgot, I threw in a BW session after this one.

Note: I have a list of BW workouts that I throw in at the end of nearly all my weight sessions, usually they will tear up whatever body parts I didn't work.

BW WO 1

pushups-20
crunch-20
wide push-20
crunch-20
knuckle push-20
crunch
diamond push-20

(repeat as able)

#2
hindu squat- 30seconds
bridge-30 seconds
Repeat 3-4x

#3
pullups-30 seconds
leg lifts-30 seconds
x3-4

#4
25 pushups
50 squats
5-10 pullups
25 situps
repeat as desired

#5
20 bw squat
5 ohp
10 pushup
10 crunch
30sec bridge
rpt

Sometimes I will do all of it once just to keep things interesting, or add/replace an exercise.

After yesterday's sesh I added #1

Work was tough, then there was some added family drama. I am fried.

I'm getting bored with this today, lifting felt good, but it is really taking my energy away from much more important shit.
Warmup- cleans
60x5
80x5
90x5

Deadlift
180x5x2
190x5
205x1
205x2
215x1x5
I'm still pretty sure there is more in me if my grip gets just a bit better.

Milipress:
60x10x2
80x8x3
90x5x2

Went for a short, chilled-the-fuck-out walk after and ate while looking over some beautiful hills.

Walked a while. There's a place on a hill overlooking the most beautiful valley with chocolate box villages dotted in the trees and fields. I like to sit there and just reflect. Sometimes I will sit there for a couple of hours and something will just dawn on me and unlock a whole trail of thought, that existed in my mind but was never explored. I might realize a whole trail of rabbit-holes in my mind that give me a whole new perspective in life. Like when you have that great idea before you fall asleep and wake up and forget it, except completely lucid and I remember it.

Two weeks off and I still look and feel awesome. I ran into some folks from the gym and their attitude about me not turning up without good reasons was not positive, I can see why really. I just don't share that enthusiasm, I think it is awesome that so many of you on here are so dedicated to what you do (Synny!)

I really enjoyed reading that post, reminds me of what I used to be able to do before the kids came along. Sounds a pretty cool experience and I bet you get a lot out of that.

Walking/easy running is great for clearing the mind and getting the endorphins going again. Keep up with the training as well, you're going good. Enjoy your weekend MF.

I am glad you enjoyed it. Those times of reflection are the most important thing to me ever, I think it would be even more important to me if I had children around. Not just for the peace, but because it brings the best out of me and my children will deserve the best dad that I can possibly be. That is not a judgment of you, I particularly need the time to put my many negative traits in order.
