good ride home last night. Did abs and pushups. Also went and shot hoops with the kids.

Everything is in limbo right now
I had my first bike accident this morning.

Darn ducks!!!!!!!
I was cycling past this marsh like ditch and caught some movement in the corner of my eye.
There was a mother duck and 7 ducklings swimming in the reeds. I was admiring these beautiful creatures and then turned around to see a metal pole right in front of me.
Right over the bars! I was fortunate enough to hit the cement in a roll but I'm awfully sore. My bike is still okay... chain was off, seat angled way off, the seat padding was separated from the bars.
The scheduled run tonight is not looking good......

Luckily you didn't hit the ducks...couldn't you have hit a tree instead of a metal pole?

Well, there weren't any trees in the middle of the path

I'm guessing the pole was there to stop drivers from going on the path.
The pole was about 3.5 ft tall. my brake cable was looped around it after the collision. I wish I could have seen it . It would have been most impressive

Why do the best accidents happen when there isn't a camera around? I wrecked late last summer and the people behind me said it was one of the best accidents they'd ever seen...TV included. Unfortunately I didn't get to see it.

Cyclists are such strange people...... :?

I woke up feeling better than I expected :D
No way i can run though... I have a wicked bruise on my inner thigh. Nice colour combination.

I was able to do some yard work, so at least I burned some calories.
I can't wait to get some cardio in but it just hurts too much right now

I was FINALLY able to run again last night.
My ankles were a bit tender and I have a nasty bruise on my inner thigh but I was able to run for a half hour.

I think I might weigh myself today to make sure I didn't put any weight on over the weekend. I was fairly active but couldn't work out prior to last night.

Final weigh-in is this Friday!!

Hit the weights last night
3x18 shoulder press, flyes, curls, shrugs, bench
3x15 incline pushups

watching my diet very closely

I don't think I have much chance at winning 1st place here but I've made great progress and am VERY happy about it.
I'd like to get under 220 by Friday. I'm not sure about a long term goal
I'll know when I'm there though... I don't have too much body fat left except for the midsection. The cycling and running have really toned the legs up.

went for a half hour run last night.
my thigh is still pretty tender. If my foot strikes down hard, it hurts.
Frustrating to say the least!

Not long left in the contest but I'll do my best to finish strong!

great job! 23 pounds in a month and a half is fantastic.
