On the band KB swings are you holding the band and it is affixed to the KB or is the band attached to the KB and the ground so that it is harder to swing?

Every time I read your workouts I feel like I am not doing anywhere near enough mobility and prehab stuff.

I looped the band through the handles and stood on the other end of the band. Jason has an article over on Dragondoor.

A video of someone doing band kb swings. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1NvBCvHNX4

The mobility/prehab stuff doesn't take me very long it just looks like a lot on paper.

*no fast*

~20 minutes run/sprint/walk to shopping center - pushing the jogging stroller
~40 minutes spent there at the game store with the kids
~15 minutes run/sprint/walk back home
Total distance ~3.5 miles??

Not sure about the total distance because we got a little lost on the way there and had to backtrack a bit, also there was time spent waiting for the crosswalks. On the way there the bug spray I had sprayed on my head got into my eyes due to the sweat, that was painful.

Later in the evening:
~15 minutes total body foam rolling - traps/upper back is very very tender, IT bands and calves as well.

Bug spray in the eyes sucks. So does sunscreen. I didn't know you city folk had to be concerned with bugs while jogging.

I was shooting to keep ~1:45 per lap and I noticed that I was coming in 2-3 seconds under that so I decreased the rest and the last lap sucked.

*15 hour fast*

No workout today, woke up later than I was supposed to to and didn't have time after work today, used by new Theracane thing while watching some TV. That thing is pretty awesome. I highly recommend it for triggerpoint type stuff.
