Heavy Legs

Yesterday was an unplanned "rest" day for me. David and I went to the gym on Wednesday, which I hope becomes our strength training day, to do legs. We got there a bit too early to drop off the little one, so he hung with her while I warmed up on the elliptical. I haven't done leg workouts in quite a while and it showed as I had the wimpiest weight on the machines while David had triple what I had. Oh well. So, yesterday I could feel the workout while walking around, but especially up the stairs at work/home. Today they feel much better and hopefully ready for a 4 mile run this afternoon. Boring workout as follows:

Elliptical - 30 min / 2.73 miles

Smithsquat - 4x10 (135lbs)
Seated single leg curl - 4x10 (15lbs)
single leg ext - 4x10 (15lbs)
DB Deadlift - 4x10 (20lbs)
seated calf ext - 4x10 (100lbs)
legpress - 4x10 (100lbs)

In better news! We booked flights/hotel last night for PF Changs RnR in Phoenix and are extremely excited to go run this race with so many blogger friends!

I was just glad not to be working out with a dude, or I would have looked like Mr Wimpy McWimperton.

It was fun, though, and I hope we can keep it up!

It has been so long since I have weight trained. I would hate to see how pathetic I am now :X

Your wimpy is my heavy! I'll NOT EVEN compare my leg press or squat with yours!

Well, I think you could still crush me with your legs -- that's pretty heavy lifting.

You guys will have a lot of fun in Phoenix!

Lots to comment on, since I was gone:

1. Yippy for joining the challenge. We'll totally kick butt.

2. PF Changs. Sooo fun. I might have to consider that one. Hmmmmm. I already signed up for Surf City Half in Feb and I'm worried about that. Dang it.
