Came in early to get my workout in before my early meetings. Tomorrow is an even earlier meeting; I need to decide if I’m going to come in even earlier still or just go after the meeting. But then I’d be sitting in that meeting unkempt and unshowered. Fun.
As promised, today was squats try-it + lower body/core rehab work. Squats felt all right for as light as I did them. I also tested how my body responded to a light DL– no pain, and everything seemed to be firing how it should be. Maybe Friday I’ll test out some heavier singles.
Squat – 5x45lb, 2x5x115lb, 2x5x135lb
Experimental deadlift – 5x45lb, 5 singles @ 115lb
Accessory hams/quads, wood chop, plank, one-leg RDL, bodyweight back extension
And afterwards, 20 minutes on the elliptical because cardio.
I complimented a woman on her skirt in the locker room and it turns out she sewed it herself– and so we had a great chat about sewing for pear-shaped figures and she told me several pattern companies to check out and I am armed with new resources and excited! Like I need another project. But if I can make a skirt that fits me as perfectly as hers fit her (she’s shaped similar to me– smaller waist, bigger hips– and it’s always a challenge to find off-the-rack clothes that fit well) I will be very happy.
But wait… I’m an 18 in their sizing for the company she recommended, but most of their patterns only go up to 16. Well, that took a bit of wind out of my sails didn’t it…
