Sunday July 27, 2008

Today Teri, Brenda and I did Ivan the Terrible, a Tim McFarland invention.

100 rope jumps
50 Lunges
50 Sit Ups
50 Pushups

The rope jumps stay the same each time but the exercises descend 40, 30, 20 and 10. Teri halved the reps but when she was done wished she didn't. I did it in 22:54 and Brenda finished in 26:34. Great workout with a minimum of gear needs.

We have had some killer meals while I have been down here and the photo above is of one of the best. Crab, clams, scallops and a beautiful salad...I stuffed myself. Hard to think of Zone considerations with a pile of crab and a bowl of clams in front of you. The scallops were cooked on a cedar plank in a Traeger grill after marinating in garlic and butter. I think garlic and butter will make most anything taste good. Made for some wonderful scallops that's for sure.

We went sailing in San Francisco harbor after our workout. It was windy as it usually is which made for terrific sailing. Went by Alcatraz, saw a fishing vessel go by with a huge flock of sea gulls looking for scraps, saw porpoises and seals all over the place and had a wonderful meal on the boat with some White Oak wine from the winery of the guy who was taking us sailing. I discovered that I really, really like mozzerella balls in my salad. Nobody got sea sick but we all got some wind and sun burn. Another great day in paradise.
