3 weeks and counting

I finally did it. I went to the gym and lifted some weights. Did some legs, back and shoulders. Nothing major, but my shoulders might be a little sore tomorrow. With the biking and running my legs are in okay shape, but my upper body is lacking. I think in future workouts I will try and build up my upper body and go easy on the legs. I do not want too much bulk, I would rather have definition.

I wanted to go swimming, but it started raining and they usually shut down the pool for bad weather. So I didn't take my swim gear with me. Maybe tomorrow.

On a side note - I like daylight savings time because of the extra light to go riding or running. But it sure is hard to adjust my sleeping habits. I should be in bed right now, but no - wide awake!

Less than three weeks to the MS150. The first day shouldn't be too bad, it is the second day that I am worried about. I would like to take the route through the park, but from what I understand the hills are brutal and I will still be tired from the day before. But it would be great training for Tahoe and it is supposed to be really great scenery. Decisions, decisions.

I'd definitely wait to see how you feel the next day. Hopefully you won't feel too bad & you can take the scenic route. :)

Hurray!! You made it to the gym! It wasn't so bad after 15 min, was it?

I actually really like lifting. I like the burn but I'm probably strange.
