White man's jumping disease. What a relief, at least I'm not the only one.

Wife's b'day so no workout. Great day though!

[B][U]April 12[/U][/B]
Work offsite so no workout.

[B][U]April 13[/U][/B]
Ran 2.6 mile hill route (22.46, HR avg. 135 max. 150)
Back squat: 5x135#, 5x170#. 5x205#, 10x225# (nice and deep, not too hard)
Shoulder press: 10x45#, 5x105#, 5x120#, 7x135#

Felt very good today. I was worried about the weights since I've been busy and skipping weight training to make sure I fit in my runs and swimming, but it felt much better than I thought.

Skiing in Tignes France. Skied 6 days and ran one day for 35 mins at the ski resort. Running up the hills at altitude was tough going. Legs got a great workout during the week.

[B][U]April 25[/U][/B]
Threw my stuff in a backpack and ran home from work.
10 miles in 1:30.14 (HR avg. 125 and max. 150)

Biked 10 miles to work (33:33, HR Avg 119, Max 150)
Biked 10 miles home from work (37:30, no HR data, very stiff headwind all the way home), then
OHS: 10x45#, 5x60#, 5x70#, 5x75#
DH Pull-Ups: 5, 10, 10
Shoulder Press: 10x45#, 5x105#, 5x120#, 7x135#

My legs were sore this afternoon from yesterday's 10 mile run and the bike to work today, which was fast given the stops at the lights and hills. The headwind was strong and a real pain on the ride home. OHS work began tonight. I'm going to focus on that for a while (more than back squats, which are pretty good).

Biked 10 miles to work (33:30, HR Avg 116, Max 139)
Drove home (need car at home tomorrow due to bad weather for cycling)
2.6 mile hill run (24.05 HR avg. 126, Max 139)

I was going to lift weights after the run but felt tired, so am putting that off until tomorrow. My right hip is feeling kind of sore. I rolled and iced it last night and will do it again tonight.

Drove to Montreal to help my daughter and her roommates move house.

[B][U]April 30[/U][/B]
Packed up my daughter's house and did the following workout:
Ran from the hotel up to the top of Mont Royal and back twice (7 miles, 61 minutes, 1100 feet of hills, Avg. HR 144, Max HR 164)

Felt good but had a momentary lapse of coordination on the trail and left with a souvenir (see attachment :shrug:). Elbow and hands got it pretty good too. What a klutz! Still had to run back up the hill again one more time after falling. Got a few interesting stares.

[B][U]May 1[/U][/B]
Moved house in the morning. New house was up a winding staircase with 51 steps. :yikes: Totally beat. Drove back to NJ.

10 mins of jump rope practice
10 mins of mobility work and dynamic stretching
OHS: 10 x 45#, 3x60#, 3x70#, 4x80#
DH Pullups: 5, 5, 10
Shoulder Press: 3x110#, 3x135#, 3x145#

Funny with OHS, when I get it right, it goes right up, but if I get it wrong, it goes real wrong. I may just to OHS as my only squats until I get ok at it, then start back up on front and back squats. Need to focus on the CF skilz weaknesses. DUs are now a green light, so maybe the same can happen with OHS.
