Well, Hollywood got to see my wimpy side today. I successfully bench-pressed one set of 12 with 55 lbs, but that was all! It was too heavy. I felt he was doing some of the work while spotting me! The next two sets were at 50 lbs. Arm dips started with my legs up on a bench, but soon deteriorated to crossed on the floor. The freakin side bench maneuver was changed to incorporate a squat and I was asked to do them slow. It wasn’t pretty. They added the side-twisty machine for 50 reps each side, too. A whole new workout when I’ve yet to master the old.
All-in-all a very disappointing day
I kid you not! There are some hills on the outside of town east of the interstate! I did them at 4PM today and I have to say I’m a little surprized. I want more!
No way did I do well, but I held my own. I did the first 2 miles in 27:28:00 and that is with three dogs coming out on me and one making me stop. He was a cutie! I was wearing my bright red Everlast and he went for them, my shoes and my hips. He still has his puppie teeth but is full grown (lab size) w/o his filled in weight. I pretty much had to walk up to Hunter’s Chapel and then he stopped and I ran to the turn around point. I lost my mojo and walked most of the way back doing the last two miles in 29:54:9. Did I say there were hills. Oh, and my new friend escorted me back a half-mile. :D
Yay, as I lift my ultra sore arms into the air in victory! ;D
The sit ups are getting very creative in nature, but as long as my back doesn’t give out I am up for them. I feel kinda like I’m showing off sometimes. Like today on the ‘cursive’ bench cross overs. I did two sets of twenty and am bent over tring to catch my breath when a buff 30-something jumps over a bench across from me. I’m pissed. Yeah, I could do that if I wanted to…so, I hit the bench with a vengence. Hollywood whispers to me, “You’re showing out,” and I smile.
