Doin' Work......DIY Style

Saturday and Sunday were supposed to be 10 miles running and 30 miles bike (or 2 hours).  I managed to get an hour trainer ride and no running (but a good amount of walking) in.  I also got 800 crunches to add to the slow gowing total of crunches that I'm supposed to get.  1/3 of the way done and I'm only at 1750.  Crank it up or I've got crow to eat.

On Saturday, the weather was horrible.  Misty, very windy (20mph with gust up to 30mph) and cold.  It slighty warmed up but the majority of the weather stayed the same.  We had a birthday party to go to that night so I thought....I'll get my ride and a little run in on Sunday.

Well....I forgot that the Krewe De Barkus was on Sunday.  We left our house around 11:45 and got home about 3:30 (in between that time was lunch, a dog parade and expo, and a Guinness).  When I got home, I decided that I was tired of looking at the back yard and made a flower bed.  I got one section of trim to show Annie.....and since she liked it, I went back to get the 2 additional sections.  I passed the "ceder stain" on the way to check out and thought....Imma do that.  Uggh....while it looks good, stain is like painting with water colors.  So....I painted a few of the trim pickets and I painted my box garden (which I'm so pumped about planting things shortly.

Tonight is a scheduled off day, but I really should put in some work tonight....probably the long bike again....I'll get in 1:45 - 2 hours.  Then some crunches until I can't breathe.......

Total Crunches (thru 9/10): 1750


  1. Staining is a major pain in the rear, I can never make it look perfect!

    1. Luckily this is a minor project so perfection isn't needed.....much.

      However, based on this exercise, I will now pony up the additional cash for the pre-stained/sealed Cedar when we put in a deck. Totally worth that extra $$.

  2. That's a lot of crunches. Period. A lot of crunches.

    How was Hotel Transylvania?
