I'm comin' up!

Workouts have hit an entirely new level, but I'm not worried about burnout cuz (1) the results are suh-weet and (2) it's fun! It's 2O+ miles on the bike before work and 20+ again in the evening. (I'm really digging the Hills Plus setting.) On my lunch break I'm going home and putting in 30 solid minutes of my P90 DVD and tonight, I started my Tuesday Tai Chi class at the Y. (Wow...between that class, my love of philosophy, my kind-heartedness, my new-found interest in becoming spiritual and my celibacy - yeah, I said it - I think my calling may be as a Buddhist monk!)

The only "downfall" of this regimen is I'm taking 3 showers a day, so I can only imagine what my next SDG&E bill will be...

To my three best friends, one of which has notoriously bad ankles and a surgically repaired ACL, another that is going under the knife soon which will prohibit him from hitting the weight room for a while and another who has diabetes and a horrible case of "frozen shoulder": I've already passed one of you up (down?) in weight (although muscle mass and strength is a whole 'nother matter), and I'm gunning for the other two of you.

I've thrown down the gauntlet and you've been put on notice!

It's done been thrown, but you should know this: Since my knee surgery, I've given up basketball and have been forced to look to the gym and running as my primary forms have exercise which has resulted, fortunately, in me being in the best shape of my life.
Seriously, I just ran 5 miles 2 hours ago on my lunch break.
I'll see you in Beijing this summer!

Come on Joe, set reasonable goals. You're only setting yourself up for disappointment if you come after this.
