One fat geek's SUCCESSFUL attempt to regenerate into a not-so-fat geek by watching the entirety of Doctor Who while walking on a treadmill

Time Treadmill Regenerated

The First Time Treadmill was located in our bedroom, up against the window and on a carpeted floor. Then, about a year into this ridiculous project, we re-did the floors upstairs replacing the carpet with hardwood. In the process, the Second Time Treadmill got moved to the opposite side of the room and given a proper Command Center with a wall-mounted television screen, a BluRay player, and  place for my Inspiration Poster as well as other memorabilia.

This past week we completely re-did our garage, and in the process the Third Time Treadmill got relocated out there along with the new Epoch Elliptical.

To say we are pleased with our new garage would be a gigantic understatement. We cleaned the whole thing out, painted, and put a new epoxy finish on the floor. Check it out:

This was a huge project, and pretty much had me off of the treadmill for over a week while we worked through the logistics. We had clear out and clean the garage, then have a plumber come and remove our old electric water heater, then do the paint and epoxy, then allow that epoxy to cure for a day and a half, and then have the plumber come back to install our brand new hybrid heat pump water heater. Even after that was done, it took another full day to get the garage put back into some semblance of order.

Along the way the new Time Treadmill Command Center was built out, and it includes a new (to us) elliptical. Check it out:

This morning I used the elliptical for the very first time, and holy cow did it kick my butt. Five minutes in I was ready to give up, but I just kept plugging away at it. It took so much focus to keep moving that it even distracted me from enjoying Adric's imminent demise as I watched the first half of Earthshock.

The other big project this past week was the retiring of my old development computer, Sexy, and the construction of my brand new development computer Rassilon. He is a mighty beast, and pretty to boot. Take a gander at my custom-designed case artwork:

Innit gorgeous?

So with all of the activity this week,and with so little working out, I was concerned that I would blow up in size. The good news is, that really didn't happen. I am still pretty much level with where I was last week, which is a huge relief. Now that everythign is in place, I can get back to my daily workouts with the added benefit of not having to worry about waking up my wife in the early mornings while hitting the treadmill or elliptical. I also have some bigger strength training plans in the works. Now I just have about five weeks to buff up before I finally get to meet David Tennant, Billie Piper, John Barrowman, and Mark Sheppard. 

I can hardly wait!
