I am writing this on Thanksgiving night...I have a little time as my 10pm newscast is coming up soon. Its not crazy working Thanksgiving...(any holiday for that matter) The gang had lots of food here and plenty of desserts. No shortage of grub. Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.

Today, I went to the gym and did another version of a Crossfit Program. I adjusted the program from Tuesday and did 4 rounds..but with more reps...

1. Skip Rope for 200 hops
2. 20 Pushups
3. 20 Situps
4. Carry 2, 45 pound plates 4 round trips (60 feet and back is one trip)
5. Medicine Ball toss overhead..20 reps
6. Bicep Curl 20 pounds for 15 reps, strict form.
7. 20 Squats
I did this in 27:40. It was exhausting and it felt great.. You don't need a shiny new gym to do Cross fit. Check out these soldiers in Afghanistan. I was eating Turkey tonight , safe and sound because these guys are busting their butts defending our country.

Wednesday, I ran 5.5 miles on the trails...nice easy pace... I will do a long trail run on Saturday. On Friday, I will go easy for about an hour and since I have the day off, The Bride and I will see a movie. We will not go near any stores. Nope.

Life's a Blast

Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving J.T. and it is very thoughtful of you to give thanks to those who are so far away from home defending our freedom.

Love the picture and you're right - don't need any fancy gym. Heck, besides the pool, I don't go into one right now!
