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!

  1. Nice job on the legs! Lunges bother my knees, so I haven’t done them in a while. I like the idea of using db on your exercises. That’s what I’ve done in the past. Your legs are going to feel like lead on your run. Been there, done that lol.
    Love the roof shot 🙂 happy Sunday!
