It has nothing to do with anything, really, other than the song is stuck in my head...
Day 16 - Half Marathon Training Schedule - 5 mile Tempo Run
Ummmmm, I ended up not working out yesterday. No real good excuse other than I was feeling kinda bummed about the ankle. I know, that's pretty lame. My ankle has nothing to do with my upper body, other than it's all on my body... Today I did not do the scheduled 5 mile tempo run but I did do the UBW that I was supposed to do yesterday, and that felt great. I'm back to doing BFL style weights and went super heavy on the lat pull downs - 110# of resistance on the Bowflex lat tower. I had to keep checking the numbers on the rods to make sure I wasn't cheating myself. I went heavy on everything. I haven't seen weights over 10# dumbbells in months due to tendinitis in my arms, and on the lat tower nothing over 50#. I still have watch it though. Any little twinge is a sign to ease up. I will probably put off running for the rest of this week and see how things go after this three-day-weekend. I also want to take pictures during the first week of September, just to see if there are any changes. I have absolutely no change with the scale weight, so it's gotta be muscle, baby -- and my clothes are fitting better.
