I didn’t do a ton of exercise over my long 4 day Thanksgiving weekend.  My pescatarian Thanksgiving meal included a Tofurkey and lots of vegetable items. I actually like Tofurkey, believe it or not.

I had a lot of other things going on that pushed exercise back on my priority list. I did my first running since the Tough Mudder last month, doing a a 10K on a brisk Saturday morning.  I felt ok during the run but since then my bad right knee has again become swollen and uncomfortable, yay.

On Sunday evening my girlfriend and I did an ab-lib 45 minute session in my backyard bar park mixing in whatever exercises came to mind.

Today at the gym I avoided a Rays Way, knowing I did not feel up to it.  I instead I thought I would take it “easy”.  There must be something cross circuited though in my brain because the “easy” idea I came up with was 10 sets of 10 pull ups and 20 push ups.

I could not complete the 10 sets before I had to get back to work, but I did complete 8 of them for a total of 80 pull ups and 160 push ups.  On the bright side, all eight sets of pull ups were completed without dropping off the bar, although the last three sets had extra hang time for the last 2 or 3 reps.  My push ups felt surprisingly strong.  All 8 sets of 20 reps were completed without any pausing in plank position, bang, bang, bang..
