Guideboat Update

It has been quite some time since I have posted any progress on my Adirondack Guideboat. Here is the latest. The gunwales, inwales and scuppers are installed. I am now working on the deck supports and decks. This part is taking longer than I planned. I want to have decks with a slight crown and also a curve in the front. I am still trying to work out how I will do the curve in the front. I hope to launch in August. I am committing to that month here so I will have a target to shoot for. Otherwise it is easy to do other things. I have lost some motivation in this build as you can probably tell.

100 Pushups

I came across this site in April. I have always liked pushups and have done them many different ways. I never thought about doing 100 in a row though. I started on April 25, 2010 and my initial test was 35 maximum. After going through the program that the website shows, I then did 60 on May 15, 2010. I recently just made it to 100. It does take about 6 weeks to do like the website says. I was able to enter in at week 3 in the training program, but I had to stay with week 6 for 3 weeks more before I could reach 100. It really works. Pushups are a great exercise and work the entire body. No equipment to buy either.
