working towards ideals
Once more, I didn’t wake up weighing 145 pounds, but I *did* get up at 6:07 and stagger my way to the gym. I didn’t do anything intense, but instead did a relatively low-key whole-body workout, based in the logic that I’m really in phenomenally bad shape and that I’m not at all eager to injure myself again, so I thought I would give myself three or four weeks of lower-key general strengthening exercises, especially for the back area.
Which brings me to the incredibly irritating fact that this gym does not have a row machine. Wretched, wretched, stupid bastards.
anyway, the workout:
- 125 crunches
- 25 horrible lying-on-your-back leg lifts
- mule kicks, 3 sets of 12
- leg lifts, 3 sets of 12
- lunges, but I forget how many
- butterfly press, 3x12x40#
- bench press, 3x12x30#
- lat pull-downs, 3x12x40#
- shoulder press, 3x12x20#
- bicep curls, 3x12x20#
- leg extensions, 2x12x30#
- tricep extensions, 2x12x30#
I also biked 13.5 miles last night, and I think I forgot to mention that I’d biked 16 miles on Sunday.
On that list of Thinks To Do from whenever, I’ve finally written Tony’s letter and the CS leavebehind. I have to check to see what else was on that list. :)
