Getting pumped to pump.
Another great training day yesterday. How do I know? Every inch of my body is sore this morning. After a 7 mile treadmill run, which I have to admit was a little sluggish, I met with Misty in the leg room to get started on doing my leg/shoulder workout. We started out with barbell squats in a superset with dumbbell shoulder presses and front raises, then 5 more supersets including lots more variations of squats, lunges, hamstring curls, shoulder presses, cable pulls, cable flyes and glute kickbacks.
Today is bicep/tricep/calves day. It's probably going to be a tough workout, mostly because I am already so sore and have limited movement in my forearms and biceps, but I can't slack off. That's the best thing about training with Misty: when I'm around her, I have this crazy, strong desire to just 'get it done' and give every exercise my all. No time wasted. After I finish with weights today, I get to do an hour of cardio - either a spin class or the stair machine. So far I am loving my new weight routine, though I definitely think it's going to be an exhausting few months until the marathon.
