    Hello,

    Thanks Paichki!

    Since Wednesday, I haven't been able to get to the gym, but back to it tonight!
    On Thursday I went to see Beauty and the Beast (pic attached below of my dinner that night! hee hee!).
    Friday we left for DePauw U in Greencastle IN. My son ran the 10k at the NCAC conference meet. His coach felt that he had a chance to score, even though he has never raced a 10k before! He ran great!!! He finished in 8th place, snagging the last scoring position!!! He ran the 10k in 33:33, a 5:23 pace. He also earned his varsity letter in track with this race! As a freshman he has earned his letter in both cross country and track! pic attached of him during his race below. (he is bib #4).

    Last nights BA meal was delicious!!! It was beef pitas and a side of roasted broc****!

    I loved Beauty and the Beast -- took my oldest daughter for a birthday party, and then saw it again during downtime when I was in pre-deployment training.

    Your son is crazy fast, that's amazing!

    Hello!

    Paichka - I loved it too! I went solo as my hubby was on a business trip. I so enjoyed the movie and my popcorn dinner!!! hee hee!

    Thanks for the comments about my son! I am so proud of him! He is doing so well, he just finished his freshman year in college and comes home this weekend!!!!
    I will add that I forced him in middle school to run cross country! I made him practice before the season began by running 1 -2 miles around our neighborhood. He hated it!!!! hee hee!!! I told him that he WILL do cc for 1 season, if after that he hates it, he can quit. He went to the 1st practice and has loved it ever since!

    Hello,

    busy weekend for me! I did my Sat workout on Thurs so that I did not miss 3 workouts last week. We left early Friday for Meadville PA. I managed to squeeze in a 4 mile run before we left on Friday.
    We spent all day Friday at a track meet, then went out to dinner with other parents. It was a really nice time!
    On Sat we packed up our son and brought him home for the summer!!! woohoo!!! So happy to have him home! Now for him to get a part time job to find out what working for a living is all about!

    Thursday's workout below:


    3 Sets:
    KB rack and farmers carry (1 racked, 1 farmers)
    KB rack backward lunge - 6 each side
    Pushups ARMAP
    Pullups AMRAP

    4 Sets:
    Deadlifts:
    1x125 x 5
    1x135 x 5
    1x140 x 5
    1x145 x 5 (pr for set of 4, and from the floor, I've done 155 from a 3 inch platform, I have to add that this weight felt good, and I did not even have my belt. Coach said my pr set looks as good as my warm up sets! woohoo!)

    skull crushers - 12
    band pull workout - 20
    Sand bag pulls - across gym

    Our most recent BA meal was salmon and a kale and potato hash. Followed by our "welcome home" dinner of salmon, filet, roasted broc**** and potato.

    Hello,

    Hobbes - when we told him he had to get a job, he said he didn't want to work on Sat/Sun, I asked him why, he said...you and dad don't! lol!!! I've worked plenty of weekends and holidays before I paid my dues baby!! hee hee!!

    DL's are my favorite! 145 did not feel hard this past week! I can't wait to get over 150 fairly consistently! My back squat is much slower.

    Monday's workout:

    My birthday was yesterday so we went out to dinner, where I indulged in a martini! When we got home, I indulged in oreo ice cream cake! YUMMY and I don't feel a bit bad about it!!!

    I did manage to get myself out of bed this morning at 5:45 for 4 miles with our running group! Maybe I felt a "little" bad about my indulging!

    Hello,

    Let's see if I can remember what I did since Wed's workout!

    Friday - ran 4 miles in the am with our running group

    Sat - gym day - deadlift day!!!

    Warm up - normal stuff!

    4 sets:
    push ups AMRAP
    ring rows 12
    1 arm db clean and press 6, 5, 3, 1 (20 lbs to 30 lb)


    4 sets:
    Deadlifts
    1x5 - 125 lbs
    1x5 - 135 lbs
    1x5 - 140 lbs
    1x5 - 145 lbs (145 for reps of 5 is not feeling too hard anymore! I feel a pr coming up soon!!!)


    3 sets:
    1/4 mile run
    10 burpees
    bear crawl
    hollow hold 60 seconds

    Afterwards we went to a BMW motorcycle club meeting. After our son started college, we went out and bought a motorcycle! We used to ride before he was born, then stopped for 19 years. Now, back at it again! We're looking forward to going on rides with others and even some trips.

    Sunday - ran 4 miles in my hood

    Monday - ran 3 miles this am with the local running group, I also have a gym day today, it is back squat day!

    Pics attached: BA meals: catfish with a cabbage slaw, roasted pork with a potato hash and some roasted sweet potato fries. Both meals yummy and son-approved! Actually my son has been helping me cook the BA meals! It's been really nice!!!

    Also pic attached of me sporting some muscle growth! I turned 55 last week and I can't stress enough how important it is to keep active throughout your lifetime. Whatever the sport, I've been a runner since age 24, it has kept my weight down and my metabolism strong. Not to mention the cardiovascular benefits. The weight training has given me the muscles I am beginning to proudly show off!!!! Bring on the tank tops! my bat wing arms are gone!!!!
