Decadence and weight gain

Workout notes: swimming and weights.
Swim: 500 easy, 500 of 50 drill (fins), 50 free. 10 x 100 on the 2:10: first 5: 1:45 each (one 1:47), next 4: 1:42-43 each, then 1:38.
100 back (fins), 50 fly (fins), 50 pull.

Weights: 4 sets of 10 pull ups, rotator cuff
bench press: 10 x 135, 2 x 185 (struggle), 7 x 170
incline press: 10 x 135
10 pull ups
military: 2 sets of 12 x 50 (seated, supported, dumbbells), 10 x 40 standing
rows: 2 sets of 10 x 50 dumbbells (each arm), 10 x 110 machine
abs: 2 sets of 12 twists, 2 sets of 10 yoga leg lifts.

Post: last Monday, I weight 187.5 after swimming. I had a rough trail 30 miler on Saturday but…ate Lebanese food on Saturday night and Indian buffet on Sunday.
This morning: 183.5 after swimming. Yeah, I had nachos yesterday (for lunch) and 2 hot dogs for lunch on Saturday. But I ate lightly for the rest of the meals.
My workouts were easy: 5K run on Saturday, 2 mile walk (26:00) on Sunday morning.

Moral: weight is really about what I eat rather than what I do.

Decadence: for the past 8 weeks, I had either a football game or a marathon/ultra every weekend. (4 Illinois games, 1 Baldwin Wallace game, 2 Rams games, Peoria Marathon, McNotAgain 30 miler (trail)). Let’s just say that I work hard during the week and play hard during the weekends. 🙂

Hmm…perhaps it is time for me to find a nearby marathon next weekend? 😉 Nah.
