Sunny Saturday

Today's weather has been great. A little cool but great. I got to the gym at 12 noon for my strength training session and the gym was packed. It took my a little longer to go through my routine then normal. Today's workout was good I'm already starting to see some strength gains as I had to add weight. Here's a rundown...

Standing Calf Raises: 4 sets of 25 - added weight
Bench Press: 4 sets of 8 - added weight
Hammer Curls: 3 sets of 15 - added weight
Regular Curls: 3 sets of 15 - added weight
Leg Press: 4 sets of 20
Incline Bench Press: 3 sets of 10 - added weight
Decline Bench Press: 3 sets of 10 - added weight

I could have added weight to the leg press but since my long run is tomorrow I kept it light. Speaking of log run, I mapped out my run for tomorrow and it comes to 7.1 miles and I'm looking forward to it. My nutrition has been very clean all week and my weight loss has seemed to stall a little bit. I'm not concerned one bit because I'm still seeing the inches come off and my run times going down and my lifts going up. Couldn't be a better situation.

On another note I went over to my in-laws this afternoon and my father-in-law has been working on redoing his 1971 Buick Skylark GS for a while now. He just put all new carpet in since his seats are at a local shop getting completely redone. He also wanted to show me the work hes been doing on all the dashboard components and they look great. The car has a brand new 342 posi rear, with a rebuilt Chevy 350 motor and all new disc brakes. He still needs to get new rubber all the way around, a front air dam, headliner, and the new seats in. I've driven the car and it's a beast, pulls very hard. If I had to guess it's probably pushing 320 to 330 horsepower and is fun to drive. Anyways, I figured I would post a pic...enjoy and have a great Saturday. - Jason The Running Man

Thanks for stopping by my blog =)

Congrats on your weight loss and make the decision to be healthy and running is really great for you! I've also lost a fair amount of weight in the past year, 60lbs, to be exact and I've really never felt that great!

Good luck on your training
