&nbsp;I&#39;ll take it. &nbsp;Better than nothing.</p> Thu, 03 Jan 2019 07:00:00 Tue, Jan 01, 2019 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-01-01-2019.html <p>Let the hurt begin.</p> <p>Bench: 195 - 3x8, 205 - 1x5</p> <p>Leg Press: 240 - 3x8</p> <p>Seated row: 180 - 3x8</p> <p>Seated Sh press: 90 - 3x8</p> <p>Cable Curl / Tri Push Down: 40 / 105 - 3x8 (Too easy)</p> <p>20 minute walk around the parking lot. &nbsp;In the morning, the parking lot is completely empty and makes a perfect track. &nbsp;It is probably 35 - 40 yards long. &nbsp;Who knows? &nbsp;I&#39;m not good at distance estimates.</p> Tue, 01 Jan 2019 07:00:00 Thu, Dec 27, 2018 http://fast.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-27-2018.html <p>Hahahaha! &nbsp;Took too long of a break obviously. &nbsp;Enjoyed sleeping in, eating anything, and not working out. &nbsp;Unfortunately, all good things come to an end and now a price must be paid. &nbsp;Muscles still function a little. &nbsp;Cardio is shot.</p> <p>Bench: 185 - 3x8, 205 - 1x3</p> <p>Leg Press: 240 - 3x8 (might&#39;ve been 260. &nbsp;Need to pay better attention.)</p> <p>Seated row: 180 - 3x8</p> <p>Dumbbell Shoulder press/curl: 35 - 3x8</p> <p>Tri push down: 110 - 3x8</p> <p>Sci-fit arm bike: 8 min for 1.7 miles</p> <p>Walk: 10 minutes</p> <p>It was a slow walk. &nbsp;Everything seems to be working ok. &nbsp;See what tomorrow feels like.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Thu, 27 Dec 2018 07:00:00
