Weight Workout

Today was gym day, I did a normal MWF weight workout.

Warmup, 30 secs ea, 3 circuits
* Jumping Jacks
* Split Jacks
* Squats
* Lunges
* Mountain Climbers

* Multidirectional Lunge, 2x20x65lbs
* Underhand-grip Dumbell Row, 2x20x25lbs
* Single-leg Bridge, 3x10 (both sides)
* Serratus Dip, 2x20, 1x10
* Plank, 3x10
* Hanging Scapular Retraction, 2x10, 1x7

45 minutes, 290 calories burned

After the workout, I ran a mile on the treadmill to see if my calibration made any difference. It did, but I think I need to recalibrate. While I ran a half mile to measure distance, the distance back was .57 miles, which could have made a difference.

The reason I'm suspecting it is this: according to the Garmin, I ran a mile. According to the treadmill, it was 1.09 miles. I had the treadmill set to 7.5mph, or an 8 minute mile. According to the Garmin, I ran 1 mile in 9 minutes! So something's obviously up there.

1 mile, 9 minutes, 125 calories burned.

Total calories burned: 415.
