Yesterday I didn't think I was going to get a workout in, but then at the end of the day after all the kids were asleep I decided to head to the gym. I don't think I've ever been to the gym that late before, but it was pretty great. There was almost no one there! I was feeling surprisingly perky for 9 o'clock at night and really powered through a back, shoulder & biceps workout including a new dead lift PR! I did two sets of 155lbs!
15 mins elliptical
Wide grip upright rows
Barbell biceps curls
Wide grip lat pull downs
Cable biceps curls- drop set
BOOM! There it is! One hundred fifty five pounds! Eighteen pounds over body weight!
Arms and lats are growing! I love it when the locker room is empty! I can take tons of selfies!
Then, this morning I wore my running gear to the girl's school to volunteer in Lila's class so I could squeeze in a run before picking up my youngest. I almost didn't go. I was tired and sore from Monday's leg day and last night's hard push. I seriously contemplated taking a nap instead. But I sucked it up and went anyway. I took a generous amount of walk breaks and enjoyed the beautiful blue sky and view of the mountains. I thought a lot about my goals for the year and ended up very pleased with myself for running, even though I didn't want to. I know it was only three miles, but often those are the hardest runs for me.
11:51 average pace
Then I came home to this awesome present from my husband. For his birthday, he bought me a lifting belt! What a guy! And it's pink, too!
