And here’s my feeble attempt at swimming again. The water hates me. It’s trying to kill me. As you can see I’ve made absolutely no improvement. I think I need to give up the water for a while.
Tune in for tomorrow’s extreme leg torture #9 workout.
It’s been a full day so far. I meet Massoman for a run this morning at 5:15 AM. I was able to get in 9 miles at an 11:3ish pace before I went to instruct Cindy’s torture class. After torture class, Mrs. Phelps wanted me to swim 50 laps with her – although, it didn’t take long before she changed her mind because she decided that I take up too much room in the pool. I was okay with that, I was tired.
After all that, I still needed to get one more mile in for the day . . . so here’s me doing the PIMP, a little slower, in my new kicks. I think slower makes it a bit easier to see my lazy right leg. Also, please note my expert editing skills.
Today’s extreme torture segment is brought to you by the Boob Run and Stretching Hell and the Nerdiness of trainers who help me video my workouts. I’m warning you right now – the stretching section at the end of the video is a little bit on the obscene side. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I’ve got plenty of junk in my trunk, get over it and move on.
Am I the only runner out there that supplements runs with weight training and leg torture? Because I’d be really interested to know what other folks out there are doing. And you’ll tell me when I start to bore you, right?
It doesn’t get any more boring than this folks. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
I don’t know if any of that matters or not, but I thought I’d throw it in anyhow. I can’t get any farther back with the camera from the behind, but next time I could move the camera out so you can see my torso from the side, if it would help. Or maybe, I’ll just do my next video session outside in the real world.
Leg Torture was particularly torturous this morning because of yesterday’s ten-mile run. Enormously torturous. Like, I think I might die torturous.
So, the torture workout with Cindy went something like this today – Squats: wide, regular and narrow stance x 24 reps @ 85 lbs, 5 times in a row. Sucks. Big. Time. Last week I was able to do 115 lbs, but I was tired today. Then we repeat the workout in the video below three times. We also did some bicep curls, which I’m omitting from the video because I have incredibly weenie arms, toe taps, calf-raises with weight and some stability ball hamstring work.
My goal, Internet people, is to be able to do those awful bench abs for the entire minute without resting. Next to the plate runners, the abs are the worst.
Be sure not to miss tomorrow’s episode where I abuse the PIMP from the side and the behind.
I’m trying out Vimeo to see if the quality is better, but they only allow 500MB per week, so I’ll have to save it for those extra special occasions.
Just more practice and a little better video. Need. Help. Please
