Today's tiered kettlebell swing workout:
8 kg: 10-15-20-25-30-35-40-(44/45)
12 kg: 10-20-30-40-(40/50)
16 kg: 10-25-(39/40)
Each number is a 1 minute round, and numbers in parentheses are failed rounds: (accomplished/attempted). Total time: 16 minutes (16 rounds, 1 minute per round). Very creative workout, had to really focus to keep track of where I was.
Now for a giveaway!
My 100th post is coming up soon. I honestly thought it would take longer to reach it, but it turns out I really like writing blog entries. To celebrate #100, and to thank my readers for giving a hoot about what I have to say, I will be doing a giveaway. I'm hoping this will bring out some lurker-readers (non-commenters) too. Leave me a comment between now and the end of the day that I post #100, and you will be entered into a drawing for a special knitted prize.
What is the special knitted prize? That's up to you! Here are the contest rules:
- One custom-knitted item, or a pair, if the item usually comes in pairs.
- Item must be accessory-sized. Acceptable: hat, scarf, socks, slippers, mittens, stuffed animal, tea cozy. Not Acceptable: sweater, afghan, luggage, car cozy, truck cozy, house cozy.
- Complexity limit to be set arbitrarily by me. If you want Latvian mittens or entrelac socks, I will probably veto that.
- Mike can't win because I make him whatever he wants anyway.
- Expense limit to be set arbitrarily by me. No cashmere, hand-dyed silk, or qiviut unless you'd like to supply me with the materials. (Wool, alpaca, cotton, and silk blends are all fine though.)
So get going and leave a comment. Your comment can be related to the post or totally irrelevant, witty or dumb, nice or mean, or if you are feeling uninspired, it can just be "I want to win the knitted prize here's my comment enter me in the drawing please". One entry per person. Exception: comments that compliment me can earn more than one entry, if I judge the compliment to be sincere. (Just kidding about that, or am I?)
Also, happy inauguration day everyone. Take a moment to reflect on the peaceful transition of power that our country's political process allows. It is easy to take this for granted.
