Hey. My gym routine has grown a bit stale, and I'm interested in how you plan/structure your workouts and what you do at the gym? How do you keep from getting bored with your routine?

Try this: Take a cup of bone broth or a teaspoon of salt about 15 minutes to one half hour before you go out to run. I forget where I read why this works, but I have tried it and it does work very well.

How do you record your workouts? paper? interwebs? What products do you recommend? How do you organize your short- and long-term logs. Do you keep cheat sheets handy? what kinds? (e.g., lists of hero workouts?).

Swimming is a great exercise. How intensely can you swim? Your body will be affected the same way when you "sprint" when you swim compared to running. Look at olympic swimmers! They're in amazing shape.
