Day 7 of 7
he seventh day in a row. My average is now 5.9788--almost 5.98. 23 days until I reach 6.00. One week down, just over three more to go. I have no doubts I can do it.
Today was a weights day and I decided to forgo any cardio. In the last three years my weights days always included cardio to warm-up, but in the last month there have been a handful of days when I haven't followed that routine. Not sure what is the best workout. One day a week without cardio doesn't sound like a bad thing.
Bicep Curls: 7kg x 25 reps x 3 sets
Tricep Presses: 14kg x 25 reps x 3 sets. Up from 9kg. I hadn't done the exercise in a few weeks so I went with a lower weight to avoid injury.
Stomach Crunches: 25 reps x 6 sets
Leg Lunges: 10 reps x 6 sets - Left/Right. I increased the number of sets. Until my injury in July I was doing lots and lots of leg lunges, but stopped because I had to let my feet heal. In the last couple of weeks I have slowly worked leg lunges back into my routine. Just a few reps the first time and bit by bit adding more reps and more sets. My legs and feet feel find.
Plus lots of stretching.
Tomorrow is a swim day--my day off as I like to think of it.
I've done weights three times this week. I think that's sufficient for my needs. I'm not trying to bulk up, simply tone muscles. Hopefully, a lean, toned look.
