34 Days Out: BaseballĀ 

Haven’t played a doubleheader in many moons so today was a pretty long day but we played well and won both to advance to the championship so it made it quite a rewarding 7 hours on the diamond. To keep with the 40 theme I’m sure I took at least 40 swings and ran 40 times…

37 Days Out: Run and Core

Today was an impromptu trip to the park due to my residual soreness from Mon and Tues, resulting in a simple running and core workout.

For 40 minutes I alternated between running about 40 yards a few times and some 40 repetition core exercises.

Nothing structured other than the approximate 40 nature of things. I included bird dogs, bridges, planking, as well as some crunches and some other simple work between the bouts of running. More than anything it was just a great day to be outside moving around.

Today I used the iPhone Yoga App "Down Dog" to do an restorative yoga session for 40 minutes. A perfect interlude between the last two workouts and what I have planned for the next few days.

(Here's the iTunes app… Down Dog)
