In Lieu of Softball

Those of you who follow my Twitter account may have noticed that I’ve been trying to workout in the offseason.  During the spring and summer months, I absolutely love playing softball.  The weekly games of swinging a bat and playing the field really sheds the pounds as I try to be the fastest guy in my weight class on the base paths.  I actually don’t steal bases, but I like to try and run out the ball from the plate to first base.  And I get compliments on my speed, in spite of my size.

That being said, I’m trying to do as many push-ups and sit-ups as I can, to keep myself in a kind of pattern.  This is going to take a little bit of nagging from certain people, and they’ve been pretty good about making that happen.  I’m sticking to the whole 100 Push-Ups and 200 Sit-Ups programs that I found online and got permission from my doctor to pursue (in case you cared) it to week six.  I just need to figure out what I can and can’t do, because it tends to fluctuate with each week that you progress.  Week One might be at one level, and then Week Two could kick it up a notch based on how you do in the previous week.  And so on, and so forth.  I like the adaptive nature of it.  Plus, it has an iPhone app, so it’s definitely awesome.

If you’re looking to see how I do, all you need to do is go to the bottom right hand side of the front page of my blog and follow me on Twitter.  I’ll be posting my updates, there.
