30 min elliptical + weights (dead lift, squat, lats, bench, stomach)

I'm living in Utah now. I took a job with Marathon Petroleum just north of SLC and am really excited to be training in more favorable conditions moving forward. It's been a bit of a whirlwind since my last post, but things are starting to smooth out now.

The downtime from training was definitely needed in order to complete everything prior to the move. Now I'm trying to get back in the habit. The posterior tib hasn't fully healed, despite nearly 3 months off. So that's discouraging. But I'm trying to get 30-45 min/day on the elliptical to keep in touch with some aerobic fitness. I missed the rest of July and all of August and was very spotty through September. My goal is to get 6 days/week in from here.
