A Festive Week

Rate this Entry
Socially, this week has been quite wonderful. Friends visiting town and friends on a break from work have put together all kinds of gatherings that have kept me outside getting lots of sun. Have had a couple of celebrations this week for my birthday. What a great week it has been. Even got in my 3 cardio workouts for the week - 2 swims and a Zumba workout (my first). Also got in one weight-lifting workout. Am continuing to walk at least 1.3 miles each day.

Really enjoy the Zumba workout and think I will make it a regular thing on Wednesday mornings. The walking also is quite enjoyable.

On weights, I have resumed heavy lifting again. The workout was as follows:

Bench press: bar x 5, 65 x 5, 3 sets of 90 x 5

Lat hi row: 90 x 5, 3 sets of 110 x 5

Hammer curls: 3 sets of 12 x 10

Squats: bar x 10, 2 sets of 95 x 10

Captain's chair leg lifts: 2 sets of 10

Today the outdoor pool opened and I got there just when the pool opened for the day. Got in 2200 SCM as follows:

200 kick on side with fins

200 dolphin kick on back

4 x 50 : 25 back/25 free

4 x 50 with fins: 25 rt/25 lt fly

4 x 50: 3 rt/3 lt/3 full fly

4 x 50 3 rt/3 lt/3 full fly

4 x 50 free with fins

200 kick on side with fins

Followed my swim with a strawberry daiquari from the poolside bar.

Plan to hit the pool again tomorrow.
