Worked out for about an hour, all upper body work. Back machine, abs machine, flat bench press (125 x 4, 120 x 4, 115 x 8), shoulder raise, barbell curls (2 x 8 x 60).

May either ride the bike trainer here or head over to the Y for that and some more time in the whirlpool. I really wish my foot would heal up, but at least I'm not limping today, unlike yesterday.

Rode the bike on the trainer for half an hour last night.

Today, worked out at the Y. Managed 5 reps of 125 on flat bench press, couldn't manage a sixth and very slightly strained something in my shoulder trying to get it back on the rack, but I managed to do a set of 8 x 115. Did some other upper body stuff that didn't strain anything further. Didn't do any heavy aerobics, but walked around a lot in downtown Indy, and went to swing dance tonight.

Well, obviously a big fail on updating this blog daily, but I'm managing to work out regularly at least. Did shoulder shrugs, curls and other upper body stuff I didn't do Monday on Tuesday. Rest day Wednesday. Thursday I did mainly leg stuff. Friday I did pushups, shoulder press, a couple of other upper body things.

I know I've had at least two sessions on the bike trainer since Monday, but don't recall when so I'll have to retrieve the data later. Friday I played racquetball for about an hour and a half.

Today I did a pretty full upper body workout, and ground out 6 reps of 125 on the flat bench press, a PR. Did 8 x 115 on the second set.

Still doing at least a little bit on the bike trainer every day, but haven't uploaded the stats yet and had a low charge on the Garmin a couple of times so I don't have stats for all of them.

Doing a split upper body routine lately, chest and back one day and shoulders and biceps the next, then a day off. Was really sore from dancing, of all things, earlier in the week so I haven't done legs yet. Set a PR of 4 x 130 (then 5 x 125 and 8 x 115) on flat bench press.

Did a full body workout today, just 1 rep each because I was pressed for time. Set another PR in the flat bench press! Did 5 x 135. It felt great to slap those 45 pound plates on there and get them up, for the first time ever! Will probably do shoulder shrugs and overhead presses later, as well as some time on the bike trainer (did 15 min. aerobic on some weird machine at the gym already).

Lotsa racquetball the last couple of months, very little running. Finally went for a 3.1 mile run yesterday and about 4.5 today. Had to lay off of weight lifting for several weeks due to a rib injury, but am beginning to get back to that. Weight is doing much better than at this time last year; I was 156 this morning as opposed to about 162 at this time last year.

Still running? Still playing racquet ball? Long time no posts.
