Day Seventeen

Welcome back to the GoodLife.  Well that’s what I would be saying if I was
happy to be here first thing in the morning. 
I’m coming off the bike on the normal Monday evening so my legs are a
little rubbery tonight.  It’s a good
thing that today is a chest and arm day, because I’m pretty sure I would have
sat in the parking lot until it was time to go to work.

Now Day Seventeen finds me in an unusual place, as I’m
getting concerned/bored/unsure of my strategy during my weight and cardio
sessions.  I feel pretty good with the
amount of time I’m putting in, but I am starting to get a little concerned with
the intensity level.  My treadmill
sessions are in the neighborhood of 3.8 miles/hour (which is a good speed
walking pace), but I haven’t gone higher than 4MPH because I’m worried about
the stress on my right ankle. I’m finding that by the time I get to day three
or four of the week, the ankle/foot are starting to get tender.

Treadmill – 30 minutes, 1.79 miles, 406 calories
Pectoral Flyes – 5×20 @130lbs
Seated Alternating DB Curls – 3×12 @25lbs and 2×12 @20lbs
Shoulder Press – 5×15 @40lbs ISO
Triceps Extension – 3×15 @80lbs and 2×15 @70lbs
Bar Giants – 3x @40lbs
Elliptical – 35 minutes, 5,675 strides, 532.9 calories,
140BPM Average

This has been the hardest week so far this month.  I might be stretching a bit when it comes to
home much I’m working out, but I feel that it’s important to go as hard as
possible.  My body may not thank me right
now, but in the long run, I think it will be a worthwhile (albeit painful)
investment.  As long as I can keep the
wheels from falling off, I should be ok. 

See you Wednesday,
