(per twitter) session 68: 2 sets on the cybex circuit (except overhead press which is hurting my shoulder again), + 3.3mi / 38m40s went to bed at a reasonable hour, woke a while between 4AM-5AM? rolled out of bed ~10:30, didn't really get my caffeine on until 11:30ish. Got out and about ~1:20 - Publecchs for a supply of Powerbars, Dunkins for coffee round 2, Lolmart to see if they had restocked white long-sleeve oxford button-down shirts in size medium (they hadn't), Target to price comparable shirts ($...

Last time I was in the gym was Monday, Tuesday I felt "springy", then Tuesday evening I got fixed up with in-house cable Internet and I've been luxuriating in that all week, after a month of leeching open access at mccafés and nakamals. Also, Wednesday night I must have slept funny because my neck and shoulders were stiff Thursday and still a little sore today. Creaky or not, session 67: 2 sets on the cybex circuit and 3.3mi / 44m40s. leg curl: 12-15x 70# leg press: 15-16x 210# overhead press: 12-1... (...more)

Woke ~7:15 feeling springy after last night's workout, session 66: 1x machine circuit targeting higher weight settings, and 3.3mi / 39m38s. 1mi at 6.0mph, cooldown, 1mi at 5.5ish, and then (per twitter) my brain overheated and I don't remember. I know I mixed in a half-lap at 8.0mph, and I vaguely remember that as I started the final lap, I figured I might beat the 40-minute mark, so I stepped up to a "speed" pace, probably somewhere in the 6.0-7.0mph range. Afterward I swung by Target to round out my g... (...more)

The combination of a heavy lunch and day 3 of gloomy low atmospheric pressure held me back in the gym last night. The day after a moderate workout I tend to perform a little harder, so here's session 65: 3 sets on the Cybex circuit at high weight/low rep settings: leg curls: 8-12x 90# leg press: 10-12x 210# overhead press: 6-10x 70# arm curls: 6x 50# (both hands) and 12x 10# (1-handed each side) ab crunch: 6x 110# + 12x 70# arm extension: 10-12x 70# chest press: 6-8x 90# + 6x 70# 3.3mi / 46m30...

Session 64: 1 warm-up set on Cybex equipment at moderate weight settings. 3.3mi / ~44m43s, alternating full laps at 7.0-75mph and cooldowns, got bored after 2mi and shifted gears to finish at ~5.5mph. I was listening to Classical South Florida a lot when my gabber mix-disc was too, um, intense for stop-and-go traffic or just feeling frazzled from room-hunting and being internetless at home. But last week they were in pledge-drive mode, so I found myself listening to the classic rock stations a bit more ... (...more)
