2. Neck WU
swiss ball neck circuit - 10 seconds x 3 front/side
swiss ball neck bridge - 6 front, 6 back

Notes:
-Neck WU - Fromt the recent T-nation article, the bridges were harder than I remember, this is something I've neglected for too long
-OHS - Bothered both my arm and my knee so I switched to deadlifts
-Strength circuit - for the rest of next week I'm going to keep the ring dips and chins unweighted, I'd like to be working up to a 1.5xBW DL by the end of next week.
-Metcon - Couldn't remember what the numbers were from the CA WOD, stopped after 2 rounds because the TGU's were making my knee hurt
-Row - This didn't hurt my arm or knee so it looks like this will be a big staple for the next few months.

*no fast*

No workout today we went to the local small water park for 7 hours. I was pretty diligent about getting the kids re-sunscreened but I missed a spot on myself, oops.

*16 hour fast*

No workout today either.

Glad that you are safely back stateside. Did the kids have a good time with dad this weekend. Looked like lots of fun.

Long day at the office. Wife gave me a non-deserved massage at bedtime which was the highlight of my day.

I was up in NJ last week and am trying to stay in town for the next 10 days. I have my summer vacation coming up starting on the 3rd of July and I am really looking forward to it.

3 is such a great age. Their personality really starts to shine through. I started taking Jr fishing with me all the time at 3. I really tried to come up with ways that I could do something with the kids and give my wife a break at the same time. So I started taking them both to breakfast on Saturday mornings so that Tracy could have the morning to herself (see sleeping in). Now I get up and workout then cook breakfast and the kids will still ask Dad can we go to breakfast like we used to?

So many great memories. Enjoy them times you have.
