The exercise routine of J. Arthur Prufrock

Quote du jour: I grow old... I grow old... I shall wear the bottom of my trousers rolled.
- T.S. Eliot, "The Love Song of J. Arthur Prufrock"

Yesterday, I made a passing remark to a passing co-worker about the Dot Com era. "Ah yes," he said. "I wasn't in the working environment back then."

Somehow I got the feeling that back then was a looooooooong time ago.

Exercise du jour: I'm going to brush off the cobwebs, and totter my way through the push up and sit up challenges.

Week 2 of the (full) 100 push up challenge
Day 2
(90 seconds rest in between)
Set 1 - 10
Set 2 - 12
Set 3 - 9
Set 4 - 9
Set 5 - 13

Week 2 of the 200 sit ups challenge
(60 seconds rest in between)
Day 2
Set 1 - 21
Set 2 - 24
Set 3 - 18
Set 4 - 18
Set 5 - 26
Done! Stealth exercising on my lunch break. Youch! (That's similar to 'ouch,' only said with a lot of feeling and of course an exclamation point.)

I have not done my sit-ups and pushups yet today. Will do so this evening after I see X-Men Origins. Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds should be excellent motivation for me, no? ;)

Ooooh... Hugh...

Not that I want to look like him, but I wouldn't mind looking at him :)

Brush off the cobwebs and totter? Is that anything like Twitter? I swear, all these newfangled ideas.

Xenia, I did my pushups. Wimpy though they are. I'm starting to have muscle aches in some interesting, seldom used places.

I'll bet that co-worker couldn't even do 100 of the wimpy wall pushups. I am so impressed you're doing the real thing. I seem to remember you know how to make a video and post it . . . Now that would be entertainment. [grin]

count: LOL! that's really the verification.

Go BCB! Yay!!!

Now you need a gold star. I'm sure I have one around somewhere... I'm pretty sure I do... somewhere...
