  1. 1|21|18 LP drylands

    Shots definitely helped the pain in my arm and tingling in my hand. Years prior, I thought the shoulder was causing it. Will continue shoulder PT until I get a pass or fail.

    50 1 rep supersets consisting of a full dip, and a pull-up done eccentrically (only). Took about 12 minutes.

    Treadmill LP @ 15% incline
    (3min walk / 1min run)
    1.5mph / 5mph
    1.5mph / 6mph
    1.5mph / 6.1mph
    1.5mph / 6.2mph
    1.5mph / 6.3mph
    1.5mph / 6.4mph
    1.5mph / 6.5mph
    1.5mph / 6.6mph*
    1.5mph / 6.8mph
    1.5mph / 6.9mph

    *Skipped the 6.7mph on accident

    May do something else later on if I have the time.

    It seems my body is adapting to LP treadmill work more quickly than the anaerobic threshold workouts. Either my LT conditioning was already maxed, or the LP intervals require certain muscle fiber types that weren't developed. Who knows
  2. Exercise and Pregnancy

    The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists reaffirmed the importance of exercise during pregnancy in an opinion paper that can be accessed here. They point out that regular physical exercise during pregnancy improves physical fitness and well-being, along with helping with weight management and reducing the risk of gestational diabetes. The statement is thoroughly referenced and goes into great detail for those interested in finding out more about exercise and pregnancy.
