Narrative: (Duration – 43 mins) →  My Nike Link
Starting out again on my journey.  During this phase I intend to virtually climb Mt. Everest.  I estimate that I will probably need 45 days to get this done.  I will go about it the same way I did my previous challenge.  I am folding in some weights and some additional exercises.  I will try not to miss any days here as well. Specifics: Did all calisthenics movements within 12-13mins and then moved to the treadmill.  Generally, I started at 3.5 @ 5°incline and changed every 5min;  I ended at 4.0 @ 10° incline.   Tried to get away from Jason, but wasn’t able to find anything to replace.  I will just have to keep moving.  Bottomline – Jason held me down for this quick exercise.  That’s it for today… Good livin’…just keep on movin’.
