Because of this, I’m not bike commuting or biking home at lunch to walk Leela. Add in a relatively slow work week and my lunch hours are free for strength training.
Usually I do one upper body workout, one lower body workout and one full body workout per week when it comes to my weight lifting. This week, however, I’m following this plan, which is 4 days a week with different body parts targeted each day.
This coincides with a quasi-step back week in my marathon training. I ran 4 miles (2.5 miles commuting home + 1.5 miles with Leela) yesterday. I’ve learned the secret to getting your dog to run faster is getting caught in a downpour.
I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to keep up this strength routine, but I like going to a website and having it tell me exactly what to do. I also like trying new-to-me moves. A free personal trainer sort of.
Do you go to the gym with a plan when you strength train?
