    I never even thought about rotating between the TGU's and swings. I'll give that a try once the TGU's are getting too hard. Probably around the 7th

    i wouldn't have thought about breaking them up either but i looked back at some of the logs people posted from last year and saw that they did that. i haven't done it so much to make the TGU easier as much to help me keep track of what i'm doing better and to keep some variety in there. it's made it pretty fun.
