7.15 mile run in Frick Park today. Gorgeous weather, great run! Afterwards, had 2 hours of bouldering at the Climbing Wall gym, so a pretty full day for fitness for a non-lifting day.
Today was Front Squat & Bench Press day of cycle 4. Front Squats: 4 sets of 1 rep @ 150lbs + 3 speed reps @ 130lbs. Drop set to failure of 9 reps @ 115lbs. Bench Press: First time in a long time I was on the flat barbell bench press. I think I’ll add
I have been slacking on my running so today I decided to get out for a nice jog, 5.1 miles in Monroeville Community Park. Just a nice, relaxing day. I meant to go a lot further (probably 8 miles) but honestly, my cardio conditioning is completely shot, so I’ll take what I can get.

Today I had no real workout, just hit the indoor rock climbing gym for two hours and did my best to challenge myself. Felt real good afterwards, like I got a good workout in. Didn’t have all the energy in the world to hit it, just a lot going on lately.
I had a nice 3 mile hike after a long weekend of work, didn’t have time for anything else and being a Sunday, the gyms weren’t open. Still though, was a good time and enjoyed myself. Just logging for the sake of it.
This morning had a 5K Run on the River. My goal was to run this 5K at close to or better than my old 5K PR of 23:58. I had however not done enough training much of my cardio fell off after the half marathon. I was expecting to perform poorly, but managed to finish
My second workout day of the new cycle was my new developmental day, but that took a back seat a bit to the fact that it was also testing out a new gym. The new gym was interesting, it had a lot of equipment, was very quiet in comparison to my normal gym so very
