Main workout: 2 rep max bench, 3×8 bench

Really really happy with my upper body increases. The weights are steadily going up and I’m feeling/seeing the results. Win
Main workout: 3×8 Deadlift, 2×15 dead
Accessory work: Hamstrings, back, shrugs, biceps
Everything felt heavy. Very very heavy.
Alarm 4:45am. Everything packed to go to the gym to run. Sat down with a cup of coffee and debated taking a cab to my preferred gym next to work (buses don’t run that early). Figured if I was going to take a cab I might as well run outside and cab to work if I was late. About 3 degrees and looked super windy from my apartment window… surprisingly NOT windy or that chilly.
Slow. Painfully slow. Very okay with that. Still not 100% after being sick, lungs are still meh. But I ran…. and I didn’t die.
Main workout: 3×8 overhead press, 2×15 press
Accessory work: Laterals, rear delts, chest, back, triceps.
I just wanted this workout over. Completely over. I started out good, but by the end I wanted my bed.
Full rest day. Still up at the ass crack of dawn (actually before dawn….) but no desire to run. So I did all those things I “want” to do but never seem to find the time. Like dyed my hair…. and did the dishes.
Bed early on Friday. No alarm set. Woke up around 8, laid around for an hour and got up, walked straight past the couch, turned on the Keurig so it would be ready when I got home, and headed out. The weather is supposed to turn back to winter temperatures this week so I figure it was best to take advantage of it. Only -1, no wind. Sadly the harbour passage turns to a skating rink with frost so I had to alter my route and headed up around Fort Howe and Douglas Ave. Nothing crazy, slow, but not too painful considering all the hills.
Total rest day. I thought about the gym, but wanted the couch more. Oh well.
Total Workouts: 3
Total Miles: 7
Right now I’m choosing to not share my pace and times with my miles. To me it’s getting sucked into a comparison trap I don’t want or need. Yes, through my watch I do have all the data, but it’s unimportant to me at this time. Someday I’ll go back and compare I’m sure… but for now, I’m just running. Simple.
