Las Vegas

I recently returned from 5 day conference in Vegas, IBM Information on Demand (IOD for short).

Great conference, lots of technology innovation to take note of and be inspired. But Vegas is a crazy town, 4 days is more than enough. It's funny that I had the same thought in my mind 8 years ago as I was packing to come back home, "Get me the f- out of this town!"

Fell off the face of the earth

Back to the Blog.

After a long absence I've returned. The long absence due to other more pressing priorities like completing home renovations, lack of motivation, relaxation and rest, the latter I have not really had much of.

I am evaluating a physical fitness routine that claims to take only need 11 minutes. I'm gonna put it to the test and give you my feedback, positive and negative. I'm sure there are lots of these type of workouts out there but I'm curious if this one really works because it's supposed to be from legitimate sources.

What I'm attempting is is called 5BX and was originally developed by the Royal Canadian Air force for crews to stay fit in remote bases with limited exercise equipment. So the premise is intensity versus duration.

Here is a link to the PDF of the now out of print original booklet.
