STS Week 8 In Review

I can't believe I only have one more week of Mesocycle 2!  This week for upper body, Cathe had me do "back off sets," for which there is a lengthy explanation, but to me it just seemed like we did a ton of sets of each exercise - 6 on each.  

There isn't a whole lot of new things to add about this week.  DOMS were about average, and things are feeling good.  I can feel a difference in my arms, but I can't say that I can really see a difference at this point.  My running is going well, though.

I've been thinking ahead to what I am going to do once I'm done with STS.  I'll be finishing up the last week of mesocycle 3 around June 6 or 7, and then I will be taking a week off (because it's required), so technically I'll be finished around the 14th of June.  I've been thinking of taking a few weeks after that of light "maintenance" weight training on my upper and lower body, and then after I return from Little Cayman (in July), I will start up STS again.  However, I will only do upper body.  I'll still weight train my lower body, but on a much lighter basis than what I'm doing now.  Who knows, though, I might end up doing the lower body also - that would get me into October or so and then I'll definitely have to back off before the Disney marathon.

Pool time is coming!  I have been impatiently waiting for our pool membership to start.  It doesn't start until the end of May, but there are only a few more weeks!

I'm also in my taper for the Frederick Half Marathon, which is very cool.  And Galloway training is starting up again!  Awesome, I love summer.
