Midnight Oil

7 minute walk
.5 mile run

5 sets
20 deficit pushups
10 side to sides
10 jumping side to sides

I decided to try out the aerobics room at the gym today since it was so hot outside.  It was nice.  I think I'll use that more often.  I finished this in about 25 minutes today.  I'm going to have to start actually timing it.

This project is a monster.  I feel like I'm pushing a bus uphill.  I doubt I'll be leaving before 9pm until Memorial Day.

Late Nighter

8 minute walk

1.75 mile run
30 burpees

Today was the day after leg day so I was supposed to do a 3 mile run.  Unfortunately, I didn't have time for all 3 so I shortened it.  Things are getting heavy at work right now.  The company let a guy go for a security breach today.  That was too bad.  Good guy.  It's almost 11 and I'm still here writing this.  I forsee a lot more nights like this in the next few weeks.  That being said I'm still not missing training days.

Got an email from my old friend Chris Harker a few days ago.  He appears eager to reconnect with me.  I agreed to meet up at some yet to be determined time and location.  To be honest I have no idea what I plan to say to him.  I have very little interest in rekindling any past friendships.  Hell I barely have any current friendships.

Gettin into the Routine

5 minute walk

3 mile run

Got my DOMS buster out of the way today.  I still feel pretty stiff today, but as I said before there is really no way around that when you are pushing yourself.  It feels pretty good to hit it hard 4 days in a row.  I'll do something a little easy tomorrow like abs or maybe just take a rest day.

Yesterday was pretty rough at work.  There is nothing more annoying than having to convince people to do what you need them to do.  This is what I remember when I go back to being a lighter for other people.  Just shut up and do your job already!

DOMS Buster

10 minutes walking

Front Squats

10 sets

Leg day has been pretty tough for me the last month or so.  It has consistently taken me almost a full week to recover from all the leg day soreness.  I did some searching on Reddit and got a tip about doing some leg based cardio the day after leg day.  So last week I did an easy 3 mile run the day after doing a ton of walking lunges and air squats.  I was still sore the following day.  Can't dodge those day after day after pains.  However, I was pain free about 4 days after leg day.  That's a great improvement.  Today was leg day once again.  I guess I'll be enjoying another 3 mile run tomorrow.  Most likely while waiting on the alarm guy to show up in the morning.
