    Thanks. The flight back was really good. Arrived a good hour or so early. Breezed through customs (thank you Global Entry program!) and walked out of the terminal to a 66 degree sunshiny day here. It's full on spring with all the trees in bloom! Actually had to stop at the pharmacy on the way home for some Claratin. Had a decent night's sleep last night and am hoping to continue the trend all week. Finger's crossed!

    I will try to keep up the running so I don't have such a hard time getting back into shape.

    I don't know if you would call it relaxing...it was very busy but fun. We worked long hours (11-12 hour days) and then went out almost every night. A few nights very late. Got to see the countryside over the weekend. Tokyo is definitely one of my favorite places.

    You're on. I need to practice my hair band power ballads if I'm gonna keep up with you though.

    I am home now and really need to get back into the training routine! I was sooooo lazy on this trip and didn't even take my workout clothes out of my suitcase. When I was unpacking last night it was like - oh, I don't have to wash these they can go back in the drawer. Glad I brought them to the other side of the world and back.

    I did another workout a couple days ago and forgot to log it. Believe me, it wasn't spectacular. Took yesterday off. This round of jet lag has been almost non-existent. I get tired earlier in the evening and sleep longer, but other than that I've been absolutely fine all day. This time around I used a combo of melatonin and unisom and one of those SAD lightboxes to get back on track. Makes me feel better about the upcoming year of trips back and forth.

    Heading to workout now and will log later. Oh, and P.S. my allergies are hitting wayyyyyyyyyy early this year! Killin' me.

    The last couple days have been much better, but it's back to cold weather so that's probably why. Plus I'm taking some Claratin.

    Workout today was just meh, but it's good to be back at it.

    Today:

    Warmup

    Pull Up w/negative 10x1xBW

    Snatch
    3x1x15kg
    5x1x25kg
    1x30kg
    1x32kg
    10x1x35kg

    Oly Back Squat
    1x35kg
    1x40kg
    1x45kg
    1x50kg
    1x55kg
    1x60kg

    That's it. Hoping to get lots of workouts over the next few weeks. I'm trying to cut back on travel for the month of April so that will help with the lifting.

    It looks like the long trip to Japan hasn't cost too much in terms of lifting. I hope your schedule allows more time at home & the gym.

    Thanks guys! Yeah, I'm really hoping for more gym time too. It's not easy when projects hit - you just have to go where the work is. I've tried and tried to work out on the road but I haven't been all that successful. I will continue to battle.

    Today I took a rest day. Last night my 7 year old had a friend sleep over. So this morning I took them out to breakfast and then to the park for a good run around. Seriously, the things 7 year old boys talk about is hilarious. Plus, the amount of giggling that went on and yelling. The sleepover is thankfully over and my son will certainly sleep early tonight.

    Back on the workout (and diet!) wagon tomorrow.

    did you threaten to send them to camp ed if they got too rowdy???

    glad you will get back to lifting this week, but don't forget the running . pull out that plan I made for you and just do little teeny bits.

    Oh, I totally should have pulled out the Camp Ed threat!

    Worked out this morning. It was okay, but not great. I know it takes a while after a few weeks off to get in the swing again, but it's frustrating.

    Today:

    Warmup

    C+J - these were just TOUGH today..
    3x1x15kg
    5x1x25kg
    1x30kg
    5x1x35kg
    1x37kg
    1x40kg
    1x42kg
    1x44kg
    1x45kg

    Oly FS
    1x35kg
    5x37kg
    5x43kg
    5x49kg

    Pushups - 6,6,5,5,5

    At least pushups are finally feeling slightly easier but still sucking. On a happy note, the sun is shining and it should warm up this week.

    I sort of miss the running avi, but I have it forever on my iPhone if I miss it too much Ed will get some awesome ones next year. maybe after every arnold for just a few weeks, jill can be running jill, but only for a limited time.

    hey, I am totally digging my vivobarefoots for work. my feet are getting so much stronger.
