Results 07-Apr-2008 Hal

Today's workout:
1 mi run: 7:43
Dead lift 8x3 -140 lbs
sit ups 50x2
calf raises 25x2 - 120 lbs
lat pull downs 8x3 - 170 lbs
push ups - 60
back extension 25x2 - first 15@ 25lbs

I went light on the dead lifts today because I was not feeling like I was doing the move right. So I took it a little easy to begin with. This overall workout was really nice. I did push ups until I hit muscle fade.

Hopefully I'm not wicked sore tomorrow.

Today's workout

5k rowing machine (level 4)
50 situps
50 squats
50 pushups

time: 32:51
5k time: 20:29

Lesson 1: make sure your equipment is in order before starting. For some reason, someone at the gym puts a yoga mat under the front legs of the rowing machine - bad idea, as it just makes the machine slide backwards as your workout continues. So after more than a minute trying to work with it as set up, I gave up and got everything fixed the way I wanted. So there's definitely futzing time in there, as well. I ended up breaking the others exercises up because there was some muscle fade going on. But done, as indicated, 32:51. Not bad, considering this was my first 5k on the rower.
