So I tried running again… not terribly successful. I only made it about half a mile before the shin splints started hurting. Guess they need more time – I’ll try again in two weeks.
In the meantime, I did half an hour of hills on an exercise bike at resistance level 7, so at least I got some cardio in.
Other exercises for today (no free weights today) were:
Leg Extensions – 120lbs, 3 sets of 8 reps each
Seated Leg Press – 300lbs, 3 sets of 8 reps each
Fly Curl (because I didn’t have time to do them yesterday) – 195lbs, 3 sets of 8 reps each
Calf Raises – 3 sets of 20 reps each
Toe Raises – 3 sets of 20 reps each
More benching and other arm and shoulder goodness tomorrow, as well as another session on the elliptical. I’m finding I am not remotely sore after those workouts, so I must be back into the swing of things. Pretty soon I should be pushing weights that I need wrist braces for again (my wrists are almost comically small for my size, so I need the extra support at somewhere around 210-225lbs).
