Jorah earned 566 points for:

  • Plank:
    • 120 sec (+42 pts)
    • 93 sec (+32 pts)
    • center-back pain getting annoying. I may be raising my feet too high on my decline push-ups (it’s typical of me to try too hard too quickly)
  • Body Weight One-Leg Squat:
    • 2 reps (+7 pts)
    • slow-down/fast up. YAYOG W5/D2. I obviously don’t have enough leg strength yet to do these. I’ll have to try again later in the program or next time through.

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.
