Re: The Barn
That looks like a brutal workout. I looked at that and got scared. Good job gutting that one out. :notworth:

We should do trip in the next couple of weeks.

Re: The Barn
You should have seen him gutting it out yesterday!

Did you see the Summersville Lake deep water traversing photos.

I want to do that, maybe next week...

Wounded Warriors came out today:

Re: The Barn
Thanks! It was brutal.

Biked 18 miles with Sandy tonight; she showed mercy in the beginning but pride was the only thing that kept me close in the end.

Re: The Barn
Thanks Tim! It was brutal. I would like to get out for a trip soon if the weather cooperates.
Looks like you and Jeff had a fantastic trip this weekend. Great job on the sends!

Jt: I'll check out some more of your books this winter when I have more time. I don't read very often-something else I need to work on.
I didn't see the Summersville photos. Where are they?
Excellent job on the deadlifts and other lifts. Awesome amount of weight!

Re: The Barn
New diet? More details please.

Re: The Barn
Tim; here are the details: Crossfit Youngstown is having a "Fittest of your Life" challenge. it started on 7/1 and runs until the end of Aug. Part of it is diet;Zone- Paleo. Simply defined as it pertains to the challenge: Zone is the portions, paleo is what you eat (1/2 the carbs for the day have to come from veggies-can't eat all fruit).
They are also looking at exercise, weight, resting heart rate, sleep, water intake, and post workout snack. We have to keep a daily journal to keep track of all that. It was $50.00 to participate. If I get enough points by doing things right, I get my $50 back. So far so good.

Re: The Barn
Thanks for the details, Norm. I think you mentioned you might do this during our Colorado trip. After this challenge you will be able to make an informed decision whether or not this type of eating is for you. Good job and keep up the good work.
