no gym exercise Fri - Sun.
wife and I walked out and about for half a day on Sat - got mild sunburn even though is still winter here;
did some domestics on Sun, involved carrying shopping and vacuum.
did not run in city to surf, large (80000 + participants) 14km run, but did think about it a lot.

inspired by timing thread in http://exrx.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7170; bought new watch.

my turn to cook tonight: two egg skim milk (only milk in the fridge) omlette with salami slices, raw baby spinach leaves with walnut oil and sunflower seeds, half an avocado and half a raw tomato with olive oil and pepper. i'm popular in the apartment tonight.

walked ~ 7kms with wife to get shopping.

time was short (appointment at cinema) so caught bus back home.

previously had estimated distance, but google indicates the route really is about 7kms:
http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=coogee&daddr=gordons+bay+to:bundock+park+to:Bronte+Beach,+Bronte,+New+South+Wales+to:Bondi+Junction,+New+South+Wales&hl=en&geocode=FRVq-v0dgfUDCSlVOIsRFbISazGdV6kg5cWNvA%3B%3B%3B%3B&mra=ls&dirflg=w&sll=-33.906655,151.25876&sspn=0.042171,0.085402&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=14

spring is approaching, so we get a nice blast of sunshine and ocean breezes. not to mention some small hills.

routine D

Some differences from normal routine:
1. 4 sets instead of 5
2. Did this outside near my apartment
3. 7:30 - 9:00 AM Sunday morning - I mostly exercise after 6pm in a gym.
4. Improvised equipment: wooden beam for pull ups; two bicycle tethering loops for dips; fence for inverted rows; park bench for stepups. All required different grips and were different distances apart.
5. Wore mp3 player; listened to the dead weather and the presets.

I think (hope?) these variations explain the pushup increase and dip/inverted row decrease.

did not time circuit; jogged to and from site; to clarify, my conduct is 1 set pulls,pushes,dips,irs,squat,stepup,situp,bridge, rest, repeat

pullups {5,5,5,4}
pushups {20,20,20,20}
dips {4,3,3,2}
inverted rows {4,3,4,8}

complex x 4 {
squat 25 x bw
stepup 10 x bw
situp x 10
bridge x 20 seconds
}

jogging/walking between exercises - 1-4 minutes with some forward rolls http://www.aikidoferret.com/tech/ (this is informative?) | http://www.wikihow.com/Perform-a-Forward-Roll-in-Aikido and pinecone throwing and chasing to catch. don't own a dog (or a ferret). don't appear to have great hand-eye co-ordination, for those that wonder why I practice rolling when playing catch...

then to mix it up, did short circuit:
AMRAP pullups {5,5,4,4}
100m run, with increasing speed each run. final run was sprint (for me).
1min walk back

cooked breakfast: 2 poached eggs, loose raw baby spinach, half tomato and (a big) mushroom fried in olive oil, half an avocado with lemon juice. wanted bacon but everything in store had ingredients i can't pronounce.
