I’m still adjusting my lifting schedule– I had planned to do a light upper body day and focus on lower body today, but I really didn’t have time for it much upper body work. I threw a couple sets of upright rows* in between sets of squats, but that was all!
I was wrestling the Manta Ray onto the squats bar (I like it, plus my lower neck hurts) and J asked, “What is that thing?” So I explained it. There’s so much weird, specialized equipment associated with weight lifting; no wonder people find it intimidating.
I was a little less hard on myself this time than last; until I can condense enough to get 2 days in a week of lifts (to build up a tolerance so DOMS doesn’t floor me every time) I need to lift lighter.
I finished the workout with 0.5mi on the treadmill at 10:00 pace, fast for me. I’ll get a proper long run in tomorrow, but the little one felt like a nice way to sort everything out.
* Upright rows are great! But the advice on form says to lift close to the chest– nope, boobs in the way. Sigh.
