Narrative: (Duration – 63:00 mins) →  My Nike Link
Oh boy!  After being hard down with a harsh cold for just under a week, I would be lying if I say it wasn’t a hard workout. So I am behind by 6 daysSpecifics: Changed it up a bit but did all my calisthenics movements upfront, as usual.  Like I did the last time, I did most single rep of 40s, but broke up a few into 2x20s.  I then moved to the treadmill after a break to attend the family weekly meeting.  I started at 4.0 @ 8.0° incline and changed every 5 mins  by 1°  to 10°.  I then jumped to 12° for 10 mins to 25mins and finished off at 13°.  I continue to rock RockMyRun for for this entire workout…motivating.  On Everest:  Based on my virtual climb, I am now in Yeti territory.  Some extremely questionable Web sites suggest that 15,000 to 20,000 feet is a good altitude for yeti sightings. The yeti is a rich part of Himalayan folklore; one of Edmund Hillary’s objectives on his Everest expedition was to find evidence of its existence. Hillary didn’t see one, but he did return to England with a “yeti scalp” borrowed from a Sherpa village. Scientists later determined that it was from a serow, an animal similar to a large goat.  The air is getting even thinner up here a bit more.  That’s it for today… Good livin’…just keep on movin’.
