Last session before I add a set with the 20 kg for get ups. Took my time again today, rested more between sets. Starting tomorrow I will reduce the rest time, along with adding a set with the 20 kg for get ups.

Time was compressed this evening to get my work in, so, S&T to the rescue. This double kettlebell work is really challenging without wearing me out, so it fits into the daily routine.

That felt really good. I almost went for a second set with the 20 kg in my get ups. Ironically, the 16 kg felt lighter in my swings beforehand as well. My swings were easier overall today, so I will time them tomorrow night, as long as I am feeling refreshed and good to go.

Man, I despise it when work gets in the way of my life.... 😂 😂 😂

I had to work late tonight, like 3 hours later than normal, which pretty much threw a wrench in my entire evening. I made time for my evening mobility work, but by then it was almost 8, and I still needed to have dinner. So, an unscheduled day off it became. Gotta get back at it tomorrow.

There are days, for me anyway, when you just need to grab the big kettlebell and try to press it. 5 sets was all I had in me tonight. Of course, work got in the way again tonight, so this was about all I had time for, if I wanted to have an evening meal. Some work is better than nothing, right?

Another session with just one set of work with the 20 kg kettlebell. I will be adding an additional set with it tomorrow. The 16 kg just feels so light after my set with the 20 kg. Progress is always a good thing.

Challenge day today, in that I pushed to make the time standard for both swings and get ups. I actually made the time standard for both, which surprised me. I thought I was farther from making it than I am, but when I finished the swings, talking was not nearly as easy as it was after get ups. I will probably add a set of swings with the 20 kg this week, but another session or two with all 16's is still needed.

Good session tonight. It never ceases to amaze me that so much work can be done with lighter weight than one would think is needed to challenge yourself. Granted, 16 kg in each hand is 35 lbs in each hand, but this was a little challenging.

Whew, 2HS with the 32 kg is a real challenge. But, I can say that it felt good, and no real DOMS later in the evening. I read in someone's log that we are supposed to occasionally do the 2HS in our program, so I thought why not. I am actually glad I did so, because I learned that this kb is not completely intimidating.

Unscheduled day off tonight. Dinner with my son and his family were a higher priority than working out. Back at it tomorrow.

Another late night at work meant no time to work out. It may be time to alter my sleep pattern so I can work out in the mornings.

Felt stronger tonight when I grabbed the 20 kg to warm up, so I thought I would try swinging it tonight. Great choice, as it felt very good to swing. I may have to continue swinging it.

This felt so good yesterday, that I decided to see how I would feel following the same routine again today. Yep, still felt amazing, and very doable. It is interesting that the 20 kg feels so good in my hands, and doesn't feel too heavy. I am definitely not complaining....(y);)

Three days in a row, where the 20 kg felt just right in my hands when I picked it up, definitely a WTH moment. So, of course, I had to check to see how much of a WTH moment I am having. The 20 kg still felt good, not overly challenging. Tomorrow will tell tell if this was too much too soon.

Unscheduled day off again today. Left work just in time to get home, change and head out to Dart League. On the plus side, there was no real DOMS from Sunday's work. So, I will keep that routine as my work for the rest of the week.

Another late night, but I was determined to get some work in tonight. Good thing I love this plan, 40 minutes from warm up to the last rep, and it felt great. Hopefully I can get a S&S session in tomorrow night.

Late nights at work have left me drained. So, rather than struggle or not work, I dropped back down to the 16 kg for swings & get ups. While I am not making the progress I am looking for, I am at least getting some work done.

Scheduled day off, and it was a good thing it was, since I put in far too much time at work tonight. Back at it tomorrow.

Wow, what a long week this has been. I felt like I was lucky to get out of bed this morning. I did my mobility work this morning and was sweating and very tired. So, a reset day was in order. I will be back at it in earnest starting tomorrow.
