Hi Bloggers, It’s Sunday. A day to catch up, a day to sleep in. I cooked eggs this morning with toast. I was half-heartedly talking myself into going to the gym. I think I’ll do that a bit later. Took some bags of leaf litter and garden trash to the dump. Made a milkshake with full cream milk and ice cream. mmmm.
So we are into fall now. Today as we were heading to the dump there were snow flakes flying. The ground is still too warm for the snow to stick and the flurries were so light I don’t think we are going to see much on the ground.
Yesterday I went for a bike ride. It was pretty cool, or so I thought when I left the house. I put two layers of long black tights on, a wife-beater tank and a long sleeve tee shirt under a hoodie. As I got riding at some point I realised that I might be a little over dressed so I took off one pair of the long tights and the long sleeve shirt under my hoodie. After that it was just right.
I stopped by at one of my favourite cafe’s. I got this French breakfast donut that was absolutely awesome. I was feeling kind of hungry on my ride and in the need for a sugar hit and that donut really hit the spot! There was a crowd of mixed types there on this Saturday afternoon. Some students with laptops and text books, hipsters in beanies and beards, and regular family types out to meet for a coffee. People were chatting and the espresso machine was doing is whhhooooossshsshhshhshsh sounds.
I’ve been working out too. I’ve done a few workouts this week. I’ve done two rotations of my workouts A-F in ‘heavy mode’. So now for one rotation I will be back to light mode/lots of reps. The work out is different. You get a lot more burn. In some ways its easier because you don’t get so physically taxed from doing heavy sets and max effort but it can still be intense as you are repping your muscles to exhaustion in each set.
So what was in yesterday’s workout? Workout F Power clean to overhead press squats, wide grip chin ups, combo dumbbell lat raises with overhead press, bent over rows, push ups with feet on bench, cable cross overs. It was a good work out!
