Disliking someone/thing that you want to like you

Recovery day workout thoughts. There are some people and some things that, while you really don’t like them…you still want them to like you. That only applies to a few.

Yes, that applies to people. But right now, this applies to an event: the marathon. Yes, running or “speed walking” a marathon is hard work and will, and I mean WILL lead to pain and fatigue. I’ll be hating myself for doing this in the final 10K of the event, guaranteed (unless things go wrong and I don’t make it that far).

But something draws me to it..and yes, I am planning a “maximum effort” this September/October and I am reasonably far along (long walk is currently 16 miles) in my training.

Workout notes rotator cuff, 5 sets of 10 pull ups (not that bad), bench press: 10 x 135, 4 x 185 (empty gym..didn’t want to push it), incline: 4 x 165, 6 x 150, military press (dumbbell) 20 x 50 seated, supported, 10 x 50 standing, 10 x 45 standing: rows: 2 sets of 10 x 50 each arm (dumbbell), 2 sets of 10 x 200 Hammer, Hammer incline: 2 sets of 10 with 140 (70 each arm).
twist crunch: 2 sets of 12, yoga leg lifts: 2 sets of 10, moving bridge: 3 sets of 10, headstand (struggle to get up today).

Then 2 miles of walking outside..wonderful weather.
