Back and Biceps are Dunzo!
I love going to the gym on the weekends. There is hardly ever anyone there. I don’t have to worry about people watching me lift, because generally if someone is there, they are on a cardio machine. Yay for free use of all the weights!
Moved up to 10lb dumbbells for my exercises, compared to the 7.5lbs I had been using. I could definitely feel the difference there towards the end. Also did lat pull downs at 50lbs and wide lat pull downs at 40lbs.
I think at one point, between sets when I was stretching my arms and I might have been dancing a little bit, someone decided to look in the gym. Heh, uhm, HI!
Long Run Sunday
Today is my half marathon training long run. It is only four miles, but that’s pretty long for me as I haven’t gone over three in a while.
Dad is going with me to the river. He’s going to walk and take pictures and I’ll meet him back at the car.
Wish me luck!
Have you ever had that run where within the last mile, you felt like you were going to possibly just blow chunks?
That was me tonight for the first time ever. I still feel it in my stomach almost 20 minutes since finishing.
But I did accomplish three under 14 minute miles, so there’s that (:
GOOD LUCK! SMASH THAT RUN
Thank you, gorgeous! x
Cardio Is Going To Be Fun Tonight…
My legs still hurt, but I’ve got cardio and abs tonight.
Three miles of awesome running is on the agenda.
Pray my legs don’t just fall off.
THE FRIEND GOT THE JOB!
Now she can actually contribute her actual share to bills instead of a lesser version because of a shitty job.
I’m so happy for her (:
A couple weeks ago I made the mistake of doing C25k the day after doing 100 squats.
Oh god! My condolences to your legs!
Yep, for some reason, walking DOWN stairs is more painful than going up them, lol. You’d think it was the opposite, but no xD.
Not looking forward to any downstairs trip today, then. haha.
Try walking down some stairs. That’s always painful for me after legday….
Considering I work on the second floor, I’m sure I’ll have to go down stairs at some point. I’ll report back with my findings then, ha.
Awwww yisssss get it. Leg day pain is the best (worst?) pain there is.
I didn’t know body parts could feel like this after a work out! haha.
I Now Know The True Pain Of The Day After Leg Day
My legs feel kinda like jelly.
And the process of sitting down? haha! You’re funny.
Hello There, Leg Day!
So I forgot that today was leg day until I looked at my schedule from my PT. And boy do my legs feel it.
Today it was the start of lifting heavier. Since we don’t have a barbell int he gym, I just grabbed two 20lb dumbbells and substituted that for the 45lb bar.
I also was able to do the leg press this time because no one was on it. Yay me! I did 80lbs for my 8x3. It wasn’t easy, but it wasn’t so hard that I couldn’t press it out. I figured that would be okay for my first go.
And I was proud of myself. There were people in the gym, granted they were all doing cardio, but I didn’t let them freak me out. I just turned up my music, pulled out my check list for the workout, and got to work. I would call it a successful leg day. My thighs are DEFINITELY feeling it.
Protein shake? Yes please!
The Friend Just Interviewed For A Position Here At Work
And I think I’m as nervous as she is to see if she’ll get the job or not.
I talked her up a bit to the guy that interviewed her. But only because everyday he’d be like “I had a good interview today. Your girl better be on Point!” And I couldn’t let him think she was slacking. So yeah.
I really hope she gets it because it’ll help her out financially so much.
I probably can’t go over to the man she interviewed with and be all “So, how’d she doooo?” huh?
