Not with a bang but a whimper.  With apologies to T. S. Eliot

Got in my final CT this morning.  I did 20 minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes doing my 3600 circuit.  Not going to tell you it was the most taxing workout or even a strenuous one.  I just did it – got it done.  Had I wanted to, I could have called it quits at the end of the treadmill session, since I had hit my 40-4-40 goal, instead I continued.  When the second-hand hit the 40 minute mark, I did another short set of chin-ups and left the gym.  That was my final workout for this Challenge.  I have no ability to workout for the rest of this week.  I planned for it.  Still…….

When I post my numbers tomorrow, they will be my final numbers.  Did OK.

My gym has a phony contest to win a 30 minute session with a PT.  I put my name in.  While I was away, Joe – one of the PTs called.  My secretary’s message was: “You won the raffle and are entitled to 1/2 hr of training time with him.  So what are you going to show him? LOL ”  I checked the board – yup – he is the lowest level newbie who has not yet achieved any certification.  I’ll see if he calls again.

I will be back at the gym over this weekend, to get in my 4th and final week on this routine.  I need to do some re-designing.  Have some ideas that will also impact on the 3600 – so I have to plan this out.  The time spent in planning – is better than watching TV.

The next couple of days are big eating days – need to be super careful – choices – choices – choices – just have to make the right ones.
