    Gracias, Oscar. The real "Go!" this weekend belongs to @MisterCreosote for running a 26.2-mile marathon. Way to go, Fuckhead!

    Tuesday's A1C score was 5.2, down a few tenths of a point, so I'm still in non-diabetic range after being diagnosed with Type 2 in June 2017. I reversed it within a year and have been trying to keep the A1C well below the 6.4 that it was at the time of diagnosis. It likely would have been lower but during these last 6 months I cheated a bit more with sweets and carbs ... trying to find that moderation point because I'm unwilling to go carb/sweet-free. But I am willing to up my cardio game, which I have. This week's total: 150 laps in the pool and 22-23 miles walking. Still fluctuate between 245-250 pounds even though I feel much lighter and am much more agile. My body doesn't want to seem to drop any more weight short of suffering thru a spinach-only diet.

    Another week of cardio: 350 laps swimming, 17 miles walking. Lots of CBD and my body and spirit feel nice and chill.

    Had this in my head for most of the hour on the treadmill this morning.

    Anybody use ice cleats for hiking in the winter? I think I need a mid-range type. More than shoveling the snow, but less than heavy duty winter hikes.

    Another few weeks in the book. Christmas and New Year's weeks at the rec center were truncated, plus a few days in the City, but got in a full 5 days today so going back to December 21 I've swum 500+ laps and walked about 65 miles.

    anyone ever do OrangeTheory? I did my first class tonight, and it was actually pretty fun. I like the small class size and the activities. I’m going to try it for a full month (the 2x/week) schedule.

    I burned 1,000 calories in 55 minutes. Not sure I’ve done that in my five best lifetime workouts, combined.
