my wife suggested that, too - I have to give it a try, maybe. I am thinking 3 times a week swimming and 3 times a week upper body weights for now, and I'll try to do 5 sets of pullups every day, too, to work on that. I'll lose some strength in my legs over the next 6 weeks, but not a lot I can do about that, but maybe I can improve my pullups and work on my arms - I really haven't worked on my arms specifically in years, and I could probably really build my biceps and tricepts in 6 weeks. hopefully the swimming will keep me from losing too much of my cardio ability.
all in all, I am really pissed off at having to change my life around so much - Iw as supposed to run a turkey trot with my kids, for instance, but such is life
