Weight Workout

This morning was awful. My weight was up, at 165.4, and my resting heart rate was wayyy up, at 68. My throat spent the night filling with gunk, and my head was throbbing as I got up. The temperature outside was 36, but instead of the dew freezing on the windshield, it was the rain that froze, making it hard to scrape.

But you know what? The ibuprofen actually worked and I was functional for most of the day. The weather forecast said rain for the rest of the week, and I almost ran today. Instead, I went to the gym, and now the forecast's been updated: mostly cloudy tomorrow! That makes me happy.

So here's the gym report:

Warmup, w/45lb bar
* Overhead Squat
* Squat
* Good Morning
* Barbell Lunge
* Romanian Deadlift
* Bent-over Row

* Incline Dumbell Press, 4x6x40lbs
* Neutral Grip Dumbell Row, 5x6x40lbs
* Scaption, 5x6x20lbs
* Incline Lower Trap Raise, 8x6x15lbs

31 minutes, 216 calories burned

More reps, higher weights for 3/4 of the workout, and I didn't start feeling sick again until I was on the way home from work. So tonight it's rest, rest, rest, for tomorrow we run!
