The One Where I Decided To Murder My Legs

It’s Sunday, and we have a play date scheduled for the park; plus, I’m sure you have fun things planned for today. So I’ll try and make this quick.

The Eats:

Breakfast – Hulk made a heavenly frittata with italian sausage, mushrooms, peppers, and spinach.


Lunch – peas and shrimp sauteed in garlic butter. I had about this x3. Note the Duke photo bomb.


Also, a small bowl of chili was devoured after my workout.

Dinner – roasted chicken, potatoes, and broccoli.



Once again, another sideways picture.

The Works:
Leg Day!
w/u 5 min on the dreadmill.
Hulk suggested I try utilizing dumbbells more instead of the Smith machine or barbells, to engage more stabolizing muscles. So my weight are all weird as I figure out how to do this.
Lunges – 3×10 w/ 10 lbs (I haven’t done lunges in MONTHS, and these totally killed me)
Deadlift – 3×10 w/ 25 lbs
Squats – 3×10 w/ 25 lbs
Calf raise (on the leg press) – 10 @ 80 lbs, 10 @ 90 lbs, 10 @ 100 lbs, because I couldn’t figure out where I was last time.
Thigh Ad/Abductor – 3×10 @ 70 lbs each
Stretch & cool down

My legs are dead to me. I haven’t done lunges in so long. I have to do my long run today, and it’s not going to be pretty. Why don’t I do my run BEFORE my leg day? I will never learn.

I did get some roof time in while everyone was napping. It was a little too breezy for comfort, but I can’t complain too much.


Ugh, so pasty.

Wish me luck on my long run, and happy Sunday!
