This week was almost a bust. Almost because I made it to the gym today for the first time. Did my "new" usual routine. 25 minutes of cardio, combo treadmill and stationary bike. Then I worked chest, arms and abs. 3 sets of 10 on chest and arms and 3 sets of 12 on abs. Still keeping the weight light, but I did up it 20 lbs. on Chest and 10 lbs. on arms. Man were my veins popping at the end of the routine. It would be cool if they'd look like that all the time.

My car with 138,000 miles on it decided to have a couple of major things go wrong. There was a hole in the exhaust manifold which on the Mazda is attached to the catalytic converter. The part was over $1,000. The check engine light indicated it was a sensor that was bad, turns out it was even though it originally checked out okay. I had them do a couple of other regular maintenance things including a transmission flush. When all was said and done this cost me a little over $3,000. The car is only worth about $4,500. A new car runs around $30,000 for anything modest, but also a little fun. I was thinking of a Mazda 3 five door hatchback, a Mini Cooper, Subaru Impreza 5 door hatchback, VW Golf 5 door hatchback or wagon or the 2016 Fiat 500X. They all cost about the same with the options I would want. The one with the most power is the Mazda. This is the car my daughter thinks I should get. 
Subaru is an awesome little car, all wheel drive and easily under 30K.

Subaru is the signature car in the Pacific N.W. You see them everywhere. I call them Subarude because the drivers of them drive like they own the road. If I get one, I'll have to practice driving like that.  Cheesy

Not training related, but...

My friend just bought a Sabaru Outback.  Any Subaru has 4 wheel drive, a great advantage in all types of weather and on narrow mountain roads. Put a surf/bike rack on top and he's ready to go.  The Forester  is a bit smaller, but same value. Any Subaru would be just about right for The Peoples Republic of Oregon and Washington. KIA, Hyundai and Fiat very good value, around here also. Toyota, Honda and VW......way over priced. Like your buying the name, along with the car.

Might try Edmunds.com if wanting to check out any car. Even a used one, but with Subaru the prices don't seem to drop that much from a brand new one. In SoCal, if searching around, might be surprise what good stuff  there is under $30,000.

I drive a Ford F150, perfect for me. A bumper winch, 4 ft jack and porta power I can go just about anywhere.  Fro the mountains, desert and ocean...and all close at hand.

Good Luck

My brother and his wife have had about a dozen of them, all different models. Been through snow, rain and deserts with his family and no issues.

We get lots of rain and not much snow. When we do have snow, the street in front of my home is closed because I live on a steep and curvy road. Lots of cars end up off the road or crashing into each other. I've heard that on top of having a wrecked auto, they also get a fairly expensive ticket for violating the sign. I've seen plenty of Subarus making it up the hill with no problem. AWD would be great for those couple of days we have snow.

LOL!  "Subarude"...My brother lives in Oregon and calls them Dykemobiles as he said they are the choice of flannel clad butches up there.  Grin

Great cars and I wouldn't mind owning one some day.

As for training?  I am but cannot go as hard or heavy as I would like. Dammit.   Grin

Too funny. Never thought about being dominated. I am a control freak. I suspect this means I have to be the dominator. Sometimes it might be interesting to let go of this and let someone else take all the responsibility....nah, can't do it.
