I finally made it back out on the water today during a well-earned day off.
I managed to paddle 10 miles in the Thunderbolt-X kayak and took it easy so I only averaged 5.7mph. It was a cold, breezy day so I had to wear a full wet suit which definitely constrains the natural paddling motion.
Nonetheless, it was an extremely enjoyable paddle and the water was clear as crystal. I also spotted a flock of turkeys on shore which was a bonus.

Then after attacking an item or two on the “honey do” list, I dropped off my son and his friend for basketball practice this evening and hit the gym while they were at practice. It wasn’t my typical #MFN (massive Friday night) workout, but I managed some good volume in a somewhat crowded gym for a Friday night. Usually I can have the place to myself on a Friday night but not tonight.
I focused on bent over rows and flies and worked in some squats.
It was a good training day.
Oh, and I’ve gotten myself into dietary ketosis and I hope to stay here for a good, long while.
And in the interest of transparency, here is my starting point for this current “cut,” according to the Skulp Aim.
Compared to Jan., 2016. They obviously re-scaled the index since then as it now appears as though Muscle Quality is on a scale from 1-100. It’s a shame I don’t have a direct comparison.
