Note: This will more than likely morph into a bit of a self-serving component of the TTP blog; be that as it may, though, I’d like to begin cataloging my workout journal in a convenient, electronic format. I can’t begin to tell you how many paper journals I’ve lost over the years (decades, now) — too, too many, let’s just say. Blood, sweat, snot, elements; I once thought that keeping my journal in a Moleskin would help prod me to keep a better handle on the thing, but alas, that wasn’t the answer either. Since I gravitate to this page quite often throughout the day, it only makes sense to keep up with my workout journaling here. I can only hope that this little self-serving indulgence won’t put a collective bad taste in the mouths of my readers. I’ll be given to abbreviations and jargon for the most part, here, as I’m writing this as a journal for myself. Feel free, though to ask any questions you have, as I’m an open book — quite literally, now. Oh yeah, and the titles will be constructed not to grab attention, but for ease in cataloging and recovery. And away we go:
