A Dainty Diary of Lifting

Typical tuesday

1 Comment

Thanks to everyone who was supportive of my uterine adventures yesterday. I am happy to report that I have now made it through an entire day without crying – might be the first time in four years that I can say that.

I am feeling completely normal, so I went and lifted. I squatted (240×3) and benched (115×3). Nothing of note.The best part of my gym visit today was definitely when the owner referred to a sled as a “growler”.

This evening, I went for my first skate of the year on the canal. It was anticlimactic and frickin’ cold. I only skated for about 15 minutes. I need to go during the daytime when ice conditions are good. I am not a very graceful skater and I just felt very shaky. I could also stand to get a pair of skates that fit properly.

Anyway, I was outside for about 80 minutes and my hamstrings were frozen by the time I got home. I am still feeling like a bit of a human Popsicle, even though it’s been a few hours since I got home. I need more tea and my electric blanket.

One thought on “Typical tuesday

  1. Sup skatin sistaaaa?! I’m so into ice skating right now. It’s really slow and boring because I suck and am constantly about to fall… but it’s also totally fun at the same time. Glad to hear you are tearless today 🙂
