decided that i need to be doing strength work 3 times a week, so i went with William this morning.  Lots of one legged squats and lunges were the legs part.  The upper body involved various types of rows and a tricep extension.  threw some v-ups and oblique work in.  ouch.  i am amazed at the strength he has gained after one year of DIII swimming.  It will be interesting to see swim times this coming year once this summer is done

Slept well last night, right up until my alarm went off this morning.  When the alarm went off I was initially thinking "Ugh, still another early morning before the weekend."  And then I realized it WAS Friday.    TGIF!

6:24am:  Friday!  FRIDAY!  It's been a rather long short week, if you know what I mean.
After stopping at Target to pick up a few things, I'll get in some sort of workout -- if it's not raining, likely I'll get outside and move a little bit.  And then, a free weekend!  I have a list of things to get done; I really want to be productive.  Except for the Blackhawks game on Saturday night, I'm intending on not turning the TV on at all.  In fact, I'm considering a personal challenge:  except for a few scheduled TV shows I want to watch, not having the TV on at all.  Lately I've been feeling rather minimalistic.
Also contemplating signing up for the Tinley duathlon that I used to do every year without fail.  It's easy enough -- 2 mile run, 11 mile bike, 2 mile run -- but it'll be a struggle this year because I'm so out of shape.  I hate the thought of being one of those last people finishing (especially because as a 40+ woman, my [...]

It is gonna be a long day training then driving home. Power outages and air conditioning going out kept me up most of the night. I turned the alarm off instead of doing a workout. Hopefully I'll get home before 9. Tomorrow is my day off though. Yay!

Planned to do a strength workout at the gym before work....got an early call for a urinalysis instead.  Thanks, Army.  Will go after work instead!

Decided to combine the leg and upper body/core 2 workouts since I had the time, energy, and motivation. Alternated between upper & lower body.

Legs: Single leg deadlifts, weighted hip thrusts, seated calf raises, leg press, lying hamstring curl, leg extension, kb swings

Upper body & core 2: Assisted pullups, cable triceps pushdown, cable bicep curl, bench press, db shoulder press, 3x (20 ex ball med ball crunches, 12 ex ball knee-ins, 15 ex ball pushups)

6:27am:  I'm a little sad to see the yellow square from yesterday; it would have been so easy to have a full month of peachy stuff!  Oh well, rather than regret the one day of rest, I'll take pride in the vast improvement in consistency.
And plus, dinner with my friend was awesome.  We hadn't seen each other in awhile and it was great to catch up!
I think I'd like to get out for a run-type thing this afternoon.  As much as running is uncomfortable and frustrating right now, I need to hold on to knowledge that once in better shape, running is something I love to do.  I've got to work through the hard to get to the good.
