Why do you say? I mean..it was MONDAY! And no one is excited for a MONDAY! Work was…well…work, so nothing new there. I was able to run after work, which always makes momma HAPPY! I’m not breaking any records here, usually a smidgen under 2 miles (because my ass is SLOW now!) but I’m pleased to do it!
I’m now focused on returning to my “glory” days of running! I’m trying to get my breathing pattern back with improving my strides. So much of running (and running properly) is breathing properly and I used to have it on lock!! I am focusing on getting my groove back! I’ve also noticed (and not recently) since CF and I have consciously uncoupled (temporarily,I hope) my running isn’t what it used to be! Some runs, I feel like I’m starting from scratch with this running thing. But I have nothing to prove to anyone, except for ME!!
Why else was today good? Again…since the uncoupling…I finally go to the gym and touch the weights again! The personal trainer that works with my basketball loving son, Julian, kindly wrote/designed a program for me! Today was Day 1. I was so excited to start lifting again!! Man…I missed it!! What did I do on Day 1, you ask? Glad you asked…
Squats– 5 sets x 8
Bench press – 4 sets x 8
Deadlift – 4 sets x 5
Overhead press – 3 sets x 8
Bend over DB Row – 4 sets x 8 each arm
Triceps extension – 3 sets x 8
*rest 2-3 minutes between each set
That’s a lot!!! And as I type…I can feel the muscle soreness! I won’t be able to MOVE tomorrow…and I LOVE it!! My weight started low and I worked my way up to a challenging weight for me now. No lie…it felt great to be on THAT side of the gym! All those people lifting is inspiring!
I’m excited to see how my body will change ( again…for like the UMPTEENTH time!!). I need to find a routine that I can stick with on or off season! Keep you posted!
How was your Monday???
Oh…I may just have a liiiiiiiitle bit of a KIND bar problem. I was in Publix picking up ONE item and I walked out with…
