For once the YMCA was only 80% full instead of bursting at the seams like usual. I got on a treadmill and started running while watching "Save my Bath" on HGTV. My legs are still sore from the past week of running so I decided to take it easy and cover the entire screen with a towel so I couldn't see how fast (or slow) I was going. I picked the Taio Cruz radio station on Pandora and increased the speed by 0.1 after every song.
- 3.8 miles in 35 minutes: 1 minute walking warm up, 33 minutes running, 1 minute walking cool down
After my run I felt inspired to do some lifting. I haven't done any real weight training in months so I looked forward to easing myself back into weights slowly. I did 3 different shoulder exercises:
- 3 sets of 12 reps, shoulder presses with 5lb weights
- 2 sets of 8 reps, front lateral raises with 5lb weights
- 2 sets of 8 reps, side lateral raises with 5lb weights
