Day 29/70: Core and Push

Complex workout. I missed my YAYOG W4/D4 workout, so I’m going to do it, then go right into my W5/D1 workout. Combining Core and Push on one day may not be perfect, but I don’t want to delay getting started on Week 5. So sue me.

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management. After work, I practice Aikido, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving, and I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday.
