Strength Training: Fear Makes Lifting EasierSeptember 25, 2008 at 9:30 pm | Posted in Strength Training | 4 Comments
Time of Day: 5:15 PM
Duration: About 45 min.
Notes: I’m still worried about my foot. Not so much now, because walking around in slippers has made the slight pain go away completely, but I was worried when I headed to the gym after work. The gym was crowded and annoying-they’ve stuck in two new stationary bikes, which is nice for people wanting to use them, but there is simply no room. Anyway, I did my usual workout and I think the fear over my foot increased the adrenalin and made it feel easy. So, at least some good comes out of this.
I did 2 sets of 15 reps of the following arm exercises:
- Lat pulldown
- Lat row
- Shoulder press
- Vertical butterfly
- Chest press
- Bicep curls
- Tricep dips/extensions
- 30 inclined sit-ups holding a 6-lb. medicine ball
- Home therapy exercises
- Ultimate Abs core workout (linked in side bar). I’m in the Base week, Phase 2.
Because my foot doesn’t hurt now and because it has yet to hurt when I actually run, I’m going to run in the morning. I may have to reevaluate the situation tomorrow. 😦
