Tuesday, March 23

It was a shorter-than-expected day at work today because the afternoon’s training session was canceled.  The morning’s session was pretty good, as it dealt with long term care insurance, which is a fast-growing product with a big growth potential.  For one thing, there’s the aging of the population, and then there’s the soaring costs of long term care – in the Long Island market, care in a nursing home now averages $125K per year.  Another thing is that while many people get life insurance through their jobs and therefore aren’t a particularly good market for individual policies (though work polices have their disadvantages), it’s rare for employee benefit packages to include LTC policies.  Getting leads for LTC insurance is harder than for life insurance, however.  As for the driving, it was easy enough when I left around 8:45 in the morning, a few brief slowdowns but really no trouble.  When I left work around 1 pm, however, traffic was quite heavy almost the whole way.  It was moving at normal speeds, but the volume was definitely greater than what I’ve come to expect at mid-day.  I can’t think of any particularly reason why it should have been so heavy.  Just one of those inexplicable rules of the road, so to speak.

Keeping with the idea of going for time rather than distance, I ran for 25 minutes on the treadmill, up from yesterday’s 20 minutes.  At my 5.3 mph pace it worked out to just about 2.2 miles.  Tomorrow or Thursday I’ll go for 30 minutes.  Once the running was done I did some upper-body work.  Precor chest press: 8 x 200, 8 x 205, 8 x 210, 8 x 215.  Not bad.  I then went back to an old favorite exercise that I haven’t done in months, namely dips, doing 3 x 10 x bodyweight.  These went fine, and next time I’ll add some weight.  I finished the session with triceps rope pushdowns, 2 x 10 x 110.
