Another day, another 43!!! Today was a short one. :Happy:
I stood in a T position (arms extended out to sides)
(Hunter still can’t fully extend his left arm – after breaking his wrist in July.) and then did bicep curls like this:
I used 8 pound dumbbells and the last 4-5 were a struggle for sure!!! Happy I made it to 43!!!
I didn’t have a lot of time to work-out so I just ran a quick 5 miles (29:19) and did 1.25 miles at a nice easy pace to recover.
Today and tomorrow I get to spend my day in the gym teaching PE!!!! I am sooo excited!! Way, way back I started my college career as a PE major before I switched to being a Chemistry/Biology major with a PE minor. I taught science (at the middle school level) BC but I also was a coach for years. I’m looking forward to spending 2 whole days in the gym with my whistle!!!!
Sometime when I pick the 43 for the day I don’t really think it through very well and I misjudge how HARD it is going to be!!! Today was a prime example!
The 43 was a wall sit (which would have been plenty by itself!!!) with a bicep curl to a shoulder press. Why????? To use one of Hunter’s sayings – I’m a “dunderhead.” (I don’t have any idea what that means but it cracks me up when he says it!!!)
I started out with 10 pound dumbbells in each hand. After the first 23 I decided to lower to 8 pounds. So, instead of doing 43 straight through, I did 23, quick change of weights, then 20 more. My legs were on fire!!! It was awesome!
After the torture challenge, I decided to break the rules a little and run because RUNNERS RUN!!!
I ran 4 miles in 24:20 and then did 2.5 at a much easier pace with a steep incline. I figure if I don’t run too many miles then it doesn’t really count!
Gotta get going – full day of errands to catch up after subbing all week!
