I am sick and tired of all this rain and gloomy weather. My cabin fever is really acting up and I am itching to get outside! Those few days of beautiful hot weather were such a teaser. I really hope this clears up a bit tomorrow so I can go for a bike ride after work. If I get off work at a reasonable hour, that is. I’ve been really busy with this one project, and it’s getting down to the wire. I’d really like to get a lot done tomorrow, so I’m going to try and go in early and stay until I can’t take it anymore. I feel like I have a million and one things to do this week, and I haven’t had the time to get anything done. I haven’t even been doing as much training as usual. Today, all I did was walk on the treadmill for 10 minutes (8-12% incline) and then lift.
For core work, we did a set of crunches, “supermans”, bicycles (with pauses), and leg lifts. Lifting included a row (body weight), chest press (40lbs per arm), twists (bands), “sumo” squats (25lbs), hamstrings, triceps, shoulder shrugs, rotator cuff, pump lunges, and push-ups. Not too rough today. I think I should have been doing more weight on the test press, I finished the set very easily. I’m sure I’ll feel the lunges tomorrow though. It’s so strange how when we do some exercises, I feel like I have so much strength, but for others I am SO weak! My triceps can especially use some work. I have the hardest time doing triceps.
