I ran 5 miles after work last night on a trail in South Chagrin with Sara. We took it nice and slow. It felt pretty good. My whole right leg is just really tight. This morning I got up and met Janet at the J and lifted and swam 1000 yards. It was the first time I lifted in FOREVER. So, it was very depressing. I am doing a weight training plan out of a triathlon book, it's a total body workout twice a week, every 3 weeks the workout changes. For the next 3 weeks, I'll be doing 2 sets of 12 of the following - chest press, bent over rows, overhead press (stand on Bosu), bicep curls (stand on Bosu), dumbell kickbacks, squats on Bosu, weighted stationary lunges, hamstring curls (use a machine for this), calf raises, toes raises (seated, put a dumbell on your toes and raise foot up, it works your shins), then ab work. I'm going to keep track of it in a notebook and hope to be able to double what I lift by the end of the 6 weeks, right now I mostly used 15-20 lbs for everything. The pool was super crowded when we got in at 6:30, but by 6:45 most people had left, so it worked out fine. It was hard to swim right after lifting, I haven't done that before.
Here are some pictures from when I was home and we went out for mother's day. My mom, grandma and sister.
