Saint Charles,IL 

So.... The other day Kevin jumped into a cardboard box, scratched at the bottom, and peed in it. This is not normal, and it wasn't normal "marking" behavior, either. I started to suspect he might have a bladder infection or a UTI. I wanted to take him to the vet anyway and have them look at his ear (split! from a fight with Molly!) and I was going to ask them for an RX for some Cat Xanax or something. They wanted to do a full workup on him first. and I told them I suspected a bladder issue bc his cardboard box pee was not normal. Sure enough, the lil fucker has a bladder infection. Bacteria and blood in his urine. Poor thing. If you've had one of those you know how HORRIBLE they are. He got a super sonic long-acting antibiotic injection. I hope his mood improves a bit now.

If his blood work comes back OK, we're gonna start him on some Kitty Prozac to ease his anxiety.

Molly and Freddie are tolerating each other well. They're not curling up and purring on each other, but they're not making each other bleed either, so that's really good news.

Another hard class. Kind of a partner workout... not too bad, social, and I sort of made a friend. So... we'll see. This class seemed to go on forever though... I gotta say.

Block 1 (Partner)

One partner is on the tread, the other on the floor/rower. The tread incline starts at 4% and then increases 1% every minute for the rest of the block. The row increases by 100m each time you row (so each partner rows 100m, 200m, 300m etc)

Partner 1 starters on the tread @ 4% incline at push pace
Partner 2 starts on the rower: 100m then moves to floor for core exercise:
10 x straight leg left
10 x shoulder raise to touch your toes
10 x bicycle sit ups

Once Partner 2 is finished you then swap, and carry on till the block finishes

Block 2 (Not a partner block)
Tread (not sure these are exactly right, but it definitely starts at 2min and decreases in length to a 30 sec all out). All at 1% incline.
2 min push
2 min base
90 sec push
90 sec base
45 sec push
45 sec base
30 sec all out

Floor
10 x lateral toe tap step down
10 x lateral toe tap step down with power
(You do 10 on the left then 10 on the right)
10 x sumo squat with jump
10 x power pull up with jump (TRX)

Block 3 (Partner)
The tread incline starts at 15% and then decreases 1% every minute for the rest of the block. The row decreases by 100m each time you row starting at 300m this time.

Partner 1 starters on the tread @ 15% incline ??
Partner 2 starts on the rower: 300m then moves to floor for core exercise – all in plank position
10 x plank spiderman leg raise
10 x plank with arm punch
10 x plank with leg lift

Once Partner 2 is finished you then swap

Here's the money shot from Yosemite. I am going to have it enlarged, matted and framed:

I am so insanely proud of this photo. Just lucky, but everything came together perfectly, and the water had nary a ripple. That's Half Dome.
