And Again

Still feeling sore and blah. I'd say I was getting sick but I don't like to say those things. Went running but my calf was really tight and never loosened up so I stopped after a mile and ran back home. Stretched for a while but it's still tight right now. My arms have also been real sore and have a really weird ache to them. I've only done 3 sets of 50 today and I think that's going to be it. No pullups. I'm going to blame it on the carrot cake and lasagne from yesterday. This old man needs his beans and spinach and egg whites for optimum performance. I made a huge pot of lentils tonight and I'm pumped to eat them for breakfast. I sure hope this general soreness goes away in my sleep tonight.

I tell you what, anyone that says running has nothing to do with arms should go lift weights during the day and do for a run that night. Between my upper body barking and trying to kick a cold I was struggling. I manage to lumber around the neighborhood for a hair under 3 3/4. Threw in an extra 25 pushups to round my number off and now I am pooped. I think Cosmo will be the 3rd winner in this get fit scheme. She gets so excited to go for a run and its nice to do that for her since we never get her to dock dogs anymore.

And on the 7th day he shall rest...his upper body.

Went to a new gym today for another trial membership. Little smaller than the other gym, I tried 2 of their elliptical machines. Each of which says I was going around 12 minute mile pace. So the punishment for using ellipticals would be rather stiff there. 3 miles in 36 minutes is like giving a mile away for free. They did have one of the revolving stair machines which are my absolute favorites. 5 minutes on that at the end of my workout and I was ready to die. One week down 51 to go.
