        I backed off my workout a tad today as I'm running a fever and feeling like crappola, but still managed a partial.

        I used velcro to attach weights to my hands and lifted for 45 minutes. I also stood for 30.

        When my fever drops, I'll hit full tilt boogie on the workouts again.

        Yay workout people however and whatever you're doing!

            Basketball practice was cancelled today. So I spent that time in the library. It's finals next week.

              about a half an hour on the bowflex
              20 minutes on the recumbent bike (5 min. miles),
              25 leg lifts with ankle weights
              25 squats
              I try to do pushups by using the counter and moving my feet back about 4 ft (I don't have the upper body strength to do a normal one)
              then at night I play tuggy with my boxer/pit bull

                  chest and triceps yesterday, cardio for 40 min with a target rate of 125 bpm, then ab work today.

                  into the 70's here today but another arctic front is coming so i'm taking advantage of it, with XMAS comin roadwork is going to be severely restricted.

                  so, who's next?

                    Alright, this is my second post in this thread. I must admit that knowing I am telling the WWW my workout did help my motivation:
                    30 min recumbent stationary bike - avg hr 114
                    55 min eliptical trainer (holding on for dear life) avg 115
                    35 min handcycle on magn. trainer - intervals 2 min on/ 2 min off times 6 avg hr 124
                    bicep curls, triceps on cable
                    Just walking round the house - rest of day - it seems like everything is an effort from sunrise to sunset

                      I just finished a 32 page paper.

                      Does that count for exercising my brain???

                      OK, back to topic...

                          Nothing for me today but I did go to the gym yesterday for about 40 minutes.

                          It is getting too cold to ride the handcycle and I don't have an indoor place to set it up right now. I guess that means back to the gym and the local pool.

                          Motivation is tough but maybe this thread will help. Back to the gym tomorrow I guess.

                            How is everyone measuring heart rate? One of those wristwatch type devices or are you just checking it from time-to-time?

                              Entry level wristwatch HR monitors are the way to go and they have come way down in price - I think they are under 100 now - a - days.
