Getting this out of the way while waiting for my ride to work:
I finished another circuit cycle this morning. As I was finishing up I decided to up my weights for August and September, then taper off starting October.
Here is my routine, with current and proposed weights:
Stretch/Japanese ham sandwich
Exercise July Aug-Sept October
Leg Press 100 120 90
Chest Press 80 90~100 70
Lat Pulldown 90 100 80
Overhead Shoulder 2×20/12 2×25/12 2×15/12
Lex Extension 120 140~150 100
Bicep Curl 2×20/12 2×25/12 2×15/12
Leg Curl 120 140~150 100
Abs Curl 150 160~175 120
The objective of these circuit cycles is to maintain muscle for running, not to build physique. I don’t need to be swollen, just strong enough to run three days a week without sustaining any long-term injury.
It’s going to rain today, but the weather promises to be better tomorrow; still overcast but less humid. I will keep checking the weather for the weekend (half marathon out of town or St. Mary’s City?)…
Song of the Day:
Bananarama/”Cruel Summer:” Because how else can you describe trying to run with record humidity, followed by rain when you left want or need it?
Bachman-Turner Overdrive/”Let It Ride:” 97.7. the Bay has the feels this morning. I love this song: the meaty rhythm guitars, the thundering rhythm section, and the vocals that go heavy and smooth at just the right times. Yes, I’ll let it ride.
