I tweeted session 82, but apparently I spaced on mindfiring yesterday's gym sessions. Plural, yes, because it's nice to do a couple sets on the Cybex gear during the day when it's not busy, and then come back in the evening for treadmilltiem somewhat fresher than if I went straight from lifting to running. So nice, in fact, that I did that both yesterday and today. Lately I've stepped up to 110# on leg curls, and 250# on squat press. 250 is not much different from 230, and I can do 20 reps on my first s... (...more)

Session 81 (per twitter): 3.3mi / 35m33s - best time by 2.5 minutes. 2.2mi at 6.1mph, ~1.5 lap cooldown, finish at 6.1 \o/ So much for "clean eating" - dinner last night and breakfast today consisted of Pizza Hut pizza and buffalo chicken nuggets. To carb up about an hour before I committed to hitting the 'mill, I sucked down a can of apricot "nectar", which is basically 200 calories of HFCS plus some vitamin C. For the past couple months, roughly, I've been guesstimating my weight for treadmill purp... (...more)

Breakfast: leftover Subway turkey omelette sammich from last night, a can of coconut-pineapple "nectar" (which is primarily HFCS, flavoring and 100% RDA of C). Pubilx for powerbars, bank, gym for part 1 of session 80: 2 sets on my Cybex circuit, all done by noon. Highlight: With 90# on the stack, I "clanked" the weights on the leg curl machine; so, I'm close to breaking into the 110# level there. Yay for strengthening hammies. I'd hoped to get to the office in time to get in on the sushi lunch order, an... (...more)

Mild tummy troubles yesterday and today, and some of the heaviest rain I've seen in quite some months. Google's forecast is calling for showers through Sunday. Despite the crap weather and indigestion, I got into the office early enough to be constructive and leave around 4:15 to have the Cybex equipment mostly to myself for 2 sets. Hardly peak performance but better than NO performance! overhead press: 8-10x 70# arm curl: 10-12x 50#, and 6-8x 10# one-armed each side ab crunch: 12-16x 90-110# arm ext... (...more)
