Days 198 and 197..

Yesterday was a rest day, I worked and did not drag my butt out of bed until almost 4pm! Then of course, we had a softball game to attend, so I had to hustle hustle! Tried to get to bed at a reasonable time, but lately it’s never before midnight, and this morning I had to get up to take the kid to the gym for 9am.

Today: Day 197

Ran 3.5 miles- more like slog, but I got out there and got it done.

Main Lift: Squat

Warm-up- 5×65, 5×85, 3×101

Actual- 5×110, 5×125, 5+x141 (8) I probably could have eaked out 1 or 2 more, but Wendler is pretty consistent with saying don’t take It to failure. So I take it to where I’m definitely tired, but if I had a gun to my head, I could do 1 or 2 more. HA!

Then:

5×10@85lbs

Lying Leg Curls- 3×10@45lbs

Standing Military Presses-3×8@20 (Dumbells)

Plie’ Squats-3×10@30lbs

I was beat. My legs were like WTF lady!! I will try walking lunges again on my deadlift day in a few days.

I’m tired and I’m beat. I really am. Tomorrow will be another off day, I *think*… it will only be Wednesday and I only have two more lifting days to get in this week. I can spread them out. Maybe I will walk, definitely no run. I think I will try, TRY to get back 3 running days into my schedule, 2 will be before my leg workouts and one more will be sprinkled in somewhere. Why run on a leg day? Well, because it will maximize my leg day, and It won’t over tax them. Say I chose to do my runs on NON leg days, it would be like my legs are getting NO rest at all. Upper, Run, Legs, Run, Upper, Run, Legs, Run. I’m going at it 7 days a week at that rate. I need at least 2 complete rest days in there with NOTHING going on. I asked around as well, and that seemed to be the consensus. Well, the consensus was actually that I did not NEED to do cardio at all, or if I wanted to, do very little and make it HIIT, so I lose no muscle mass. I think it’s safe to say that I’m the kind of gal that needs a little cardio in her life.

 

So this is the problem I run into. I lose all my weight up top FIRST..then it comes off the bottom. NO, I’m not holding this in! How do I washboard this? Crunches. I HATE crunches. YUCK. Why can’t crunches and ab work be fun?!
