STS Week 7 In Review

This was a really low motivation week for me.  So, I did the first upper body workout on Monday.  Awesome.  I decided to do the legs workout on Tuesday, since I'd been so sore the previous week and I had a long run scheduled for Saturday.  Fine.

I was supposed to run Wednesday and Thursday and do my second upper body workout on Friday, but I ended up taking Wednesday and Friday off and running hills on Thursday.  I ran 13 miles on Saturday and finally got the upper body workout in on Sunday, but I know putting more than 7 days between my weight workouts for each body part is a mistake.  Still, whatever I can do to get them in when I'm feeling like that.

I know that the solution is to workout in the mornings, so I am trying to get that in line.  I got up early this morning and ran 3 1/2 miles before work.  I am feeling pretty good about that.  There's only 4 days left in the work week, lol!

About the workouts themselves - well, there were less DOMS this week, although I still felt it.  We increased weights to 75% of my 1 Rep Max, which was easier than I would have expected it to be.  The only bad thing was that I dropped my barbell on my pelvis after I finished a set of chest press.  It hit on my left side, and was loaded with 35 pounds.  It was not too  bad though, I must have caught it better than I thought.  Clearly, I was truly at total failure!!
