Holiday Travel. Utah and Boston.

I just bought my tix.

On December 22nd, I will go to Utah, and will spend Christmas with my family there. On the 27th, I will be in Boston, and will spend New Year with my friends there. And then on Jan 4th, I will return home to Seattle.

It's cheaper to fly SouthWest to SLC, and then fly Continental from SLC to BOS to SEA, then it is to fly Continental the whole loop. Oh well, I like flying LUV, they have good aircrews. Pity that they dont do longhaul, and that they dont land at Logan in Boston. I think maybe my next SEA/BOS shot I will give Alaska Air a try.

I've been talking about going down to Vegas to spend some windtunnel training time over this holiday trip, but as I thought it thru, I decided that that was too much money and insanity in too short a period of time. I think instead it would be better to make it a birthday present to myself, in March.

Gym. Session 97 of 124. Chest and Biceps.

Doing the ordered list of exercises done, is boring to everyone else, and useless for me to record here (its better recorded in my trainer log). So I will stop.

No jumps in ability today. Did good form, burned out only a few times. We noticed that last Monday we accidentally did the tricep sequence instead of the bicep one. Oops.

Major change to the ball crunch. Instead of just crunching out 105 reps, he gave me a 45lb barbell plate to hold against my chest. I could only do 50 of those, and it was a different collection of muscles to give out first.

Steve is taking his first multiday vacation in over a year, over the Thanksgiving Day weekend, so if I work out on Friday, it will be by myself.
