A couple of people have asked what my next race is, and I don't have one on my calendar right now, our summer is booked pretty tight but I might slip one in if I can get over shin splints soon. I got lazy about wearing orthotics (shoe inserts) in my running shoes and I messed up my shins pretty badly running around with some extra pounds on my frame. Good news for me, I've lost about 5 pounds in the last 3 months and it feels great! I'm trying to keep some extra weight on for fertility purposes but too much weight doesn't feel good at all.
I am starting back with weight lifting and learned something disturbing, my chest muscles are incredibly underdeveloped. On the chest press machine I couldn't add any weight at all and failed before 10 reps. YIKES!
But on the seated row I could jack the weight up and do 15 reps easily.
It's pretty clear that I have an underdeveloped chest! I thought I got over that long ago :( just joking! I'm meeting Bill tonight for a weight lifting/swimming double workout so I don't plan on being able to lift my arms over my head tomorrow. Looking forward to that!
