September 1: The month began wonderfully well with 45 cross-trainer minues followed by some skipping and a light chest. shoulders, and triceps workout:
Sunday, September 2: A nice steady 10 k jog along Seou's Han River with some Mannam cultists who like to run and some non-cultisits from the Seoul Flyers Running Club who also like to run. I think they are all mad.
Monday, September 3: A short back, lats, traps, and lower nack workout aftr work.
Another favorite melody ruined. Sorry Mr. Shore.
A very beautiful theme from John Williams' briliant War Horse score spoiled by a horrible horrible video. It seemed like a good idea at time:
Wednesday, August 1: My vacation get-fit program continues into the very hot month of August and began with a really hard weights session: back, biceps, traps, lats, forearms, sides, lower back, and abs plus the usual skipping sets. I also rode about 20 kilometers on my bike, but that was too leisurely to warrant a cardio diary photo.
Thursday, August 2: A 7-kilometer treadmill run followed by calf raises and quite a few skipping sets. And a total of 15 kilometers on my bike throughout the day:
Friday, August 3: Chest, shoulders, triceps, and skipping in the gym quite early and then to the pool for a leisurely 1 km swim (my shoulders were tired). And according to my new bike's new computer I pedalled 17.5 kilometers throughout the day:

Monday, July 9: 52 minutes on my favorite cross-trainer again while watching a season 3 episode of Breaking Bad (My iPad 3 sits nicely on the little ledge below my cross-trainer’s display screen. Nice way to pass the time:
A big thank you to Battlestar composer Bear McCreary for awarding my "Roslin and Adama for 3 Peters" video a very special "What the Frak" Award! It truely made my day, week, month, and year to read his colorful thoughts on my video^^. I was truly honored and touched to learn that a composer whose music has given me some much pleasure took the time to comment on my amateur endeavor:
Here is the offending video, and it's not nearly as bad as I remember it... or is it?
Saturday, June 2: My June campaign began in Houston, Texas in the Crowne Plaza’s little gym with a 4.5 mile (7.2 km) treadmill session followed by a nice relaxing poolside nap:
Tuesday, June 5: Three treadmill ks, chest, shoulders, and triceps to help clear those jetlag cobwebs. And it did the trick.
Thursday, June 7: Up very early for a 90-minute workout! 3.5 ks on the treadmill, several skipping sets, and weights: back, biceps, lats, traps, abs, forearms, and lower back. And that was my hardest workout in a very, very long time:
