On June 27th, I did a little exercising at home and set two new personal bests this time around: 250 crunches (75+75+100), up from 200; and 73 total push ups, up from 69 in groups with 10-breath rests in between (45+11+8+9). But then my home-gym activity was interrupted by family stuff.

Played tennis on the 29th, when I substituted in doubles, then again today with the oldest guys. I am in a slump and hitting lots of balls long, though my serve is the best of most of the other six players. At least that is my professional, totally unbiased opinion. But my team still lost two out of three sets the first day, and both sets today, one in a tiebreaker.

Back to the gym this afternoon, where I set a record for bicycle crunches: 250 in four sets (80+60+60+50). Still made 8 pull ups followed by 5 chin ups.

Feeling pumped, so I wanted a new progress photo. A little awkward, when I asked some stranger to take the picture. He did it and ran out. It wasn’t that good. I decided not to ask guys in towels who might drop them to take the second shot. Finally found someone to do it who didn’t think I was coming on to him. Oh well. I am learning the delicacies of gym locker etiquette. Gotta figure out how to flex those abs. It can’t be that hard!
