    My stamina has improved enough to start keeping track of my times. Today was an off day from working out so I was able to get out before the heat kicked in. It's still in the 90's in the morning, but better than 100. We are supposed to be getting some rain this week and hopefully that will cool us down.

    I should have thought twice about a long bike ride after this workout. It wasn't raining though so I couldn't resist. Legs are toast this afternoon and I have another lower body focus later this week. Not complaining, love summer workouts.

    Lift (MonMax )

    BB Hip Thrust w/ shoulders on bench 8;8; AMRAP
    160 x 8; 8; 18 I don’t remember if I’ve done these as a core lift. I need to check my notes, but I’m pretty sure I would remember the burn in the 60-70% weeks!

    Reverse Lunge 3x 12
    15 x 12; 12; 12 - I thought the weight was set too low on these, but geez, after the 18 hip thrust 15lb was enough.

    Romanian Deadlift 3 x 12
    100 x 12; 12; 12

    Leg Extension 3 x12
    115 x 12; 12; 12

    Cable Face Pull w/ rope 3 x 12
    18 x 12; 12; 12

    Pallof Press 3 x 12
    9 x 12; 12; 12

    Trail bike ride
    4 laps- ~1 hr
    I had to replace a gear cable so I didn’t record my times. I kept stopping to make adjustments.

    lol. Depending on how much yard work I end up doing, it totally counts as a work out.
    Life's journey is not about arriving at your grave in a perfect, well-preserved body, but, rather to slide in head-first yelling "Holy ****!!! What a Ride!!!!

    I didn’t pay attention to the mileage, just rode for about an hour. I’ve been playing around with the best day to ride. The last time I rode on leg day I was riding for time and it wiped me out. Of course it was almost a 100. Only 92 this morning.

    Looks like you are doing great. I agree, can't believe it's already the end of June. We'll be in July soon and that's insane.

    I took out skullcrushers too. My right elbow just had too many issues with that one.

    I wonder what it is with the skullcrushers and the elbow? The first time I had a problem with my elbow was the morning after I had done skullcrushers the previous afternoon. I was later diagnosed with a foreign body in my elbow after it became lodged in the joint. Easy surgery, just go in and get it out. I have done skullcrushers since the surgery so I'm not sure why they're bothering me now. I like them but enough to risk something else breaking off and floating around!

    Week 130 - Micro 129- 90% Week

    Pull/OHP (Fri)- Weights involving my elbow were kept conservative to let it calm. It’s finally calming down so I'm pretty sure it was the skullcrushers.

    Chin Up Grip Lat Pulldown AMRAP; 1; 1
    135 x 4; 1; 1

    BB Standing OHP 4 x 5
    60 x 5; 5; 5; 5

    Walk: 1.89 miles/31 min
    Ride: 6.76 miles/31 min

    Saturday-Ride- Off day from working out so I got to the trail around 9:00. We had some rain last night which cooled things off a little. Usually rain this time of year makes it feel like a rainforest but this morning it felt great. Mid to high 80’s and the humidity was low. Lol, it felt like fall compared 90-100 degree rides I’ve had lately.

    Park ride to warm-up 3.79 miles/19 min.

    I posted this in the Female Misc. section but wanted to post here too.

    So I have a weird thing happening with my toes and I’m reaching out to the readers here in hopes someone knows what’s going on. About a year ago I noticed a slight separation between my 3rd and 4th toes on one of my feet. No pain, no swelling, and I don’t remember doing anything different around that time. This spring I noticed the separation had increased. I haven’t ran since 1986 due to multiple surgeries on one knee but walk a lot and I have noticed no pain while walking on pavement. I am a high school teacher and I noticed no pain during my teaching day ether. The only pain I experience is when walking on a trail but it’s not constant and nothing that would send me to a doctor. I did see a doctor though because I want to know what’s going on!

    I made an appointment with a sports medicine orthopedist that specializes in feet and ankles. He was a little puzzled because the only time he had seen that type of separation was with a plantar plate tear or a neuroma. After his examination, he couldn’t confirm either. I followed up a few weeks later with a podiatrist that basically had the same conclusion. Both doctors have asked that I return if the pain increases or if the space widens.

    Does anyone have any experience with this type thing? I welcome any thoughts and/or comments!

    I can't say for sure as I haven't even tried them in the last couple of years but might have to do with the angle and the motion. I injured my elbow back in college when I was on the bowling team. Was not the wisest as I hurt it during practice and that weekend competed in three tournaments (one friday, saturday and sunday) with several games bowled per tournament. Between that and years of different angles for computer work, the elbow just gets cranky from time to time. Work is set up based on an average height so the computers and counters are a little off for me since I'm short.

    Odd about the foreign body. I haven't had mine even analyzed. Can see why you wouldn't want to risk that again even if it's an easy fix.


    As for the recent toe issue. No clue to be honest. My feet hurt on a regular basis from work but haven't experienced such an issue myself.

    I'm not a bowler but could see how it could have an affect on an elbow. I'm hoping this toe thing doesn't bother me when school starts. I teach science and have a really active class. It didn't bother me in the spring so I'm hoping it continues when school starts back in a month. I've only got to get through this next school year and then I will retire.

    I am very curious about your toes lol. That sounds so weird typed out. Like an actual tear, or like a widening? And you really arent bothered by it?

    I'm curious about my toes too! LOL. No tear, it's like my 3rd and 4th toe are forming a peace sign. I can bring them together with no pain, but they won't stay like that. So far the only pain is after a long walk on the trail. Both doctors are thinking it's a neuroma but normally there is pain first then the spreading. And that's IF the spreading happens. That's what made them think a plantar plate tear, but there's no pain when they poke on the ball of my foot. Apparently there should be pain on the ball of my foot if I had either.

    Right now I'm wearing a pad right below the ball of my foot and above the arch. Hard as heck to get it positioned right. It's supposed to take the pressure off the forefoot. It does feel better when I have it positioned right, but who wants to walk around with something in their shoe??

    90% week done and now it's time for a scheduled week off. I'm trying to take a full week off after 8 weeks of working out. My program is designed to lessen the need of a deload, but I'm beginning to feel like I need the time away from the gym. I'm feeling the effects of my increased activity since being home for the summer so the week off is coming at a good time. Also, because I just finished 90% week with 4x5 sets I will return to 60% week and 3x12 sets. I'm heading out for a trail ride while it's still in the 80's. Just checked the weather, there is 68% humidity. Sigh. This is Day 1 of my off week so I plan to take it easy and just ride for about an hour.

    Week 130 - Micro 129- 90% Week

    Press (Tue/Max )

    BB Incline Press 1; 1AMRAP
    100 x I could only manage 2! The x1 sets weren’t too bad though

    Flat Bench DB Row 4 x 5
    55 x 5; 5; 5; 5

    Cable Kickbacks 3 x 12
    30 x 12; 12; 12

    I started my workout week off last Wednesday with an easy 1 hr bike ride and ended my off week today with the same thing. The week came at a perfect time, my body needed the time off and I had a nice getaway to St. Augustine. I'm pretty consistent in what I eat so there usually isn't much fluctuation in the scale. But I enjoyed a lot of the awesome food St. Augustine had to offer and as a result the scale was up about 4 lbs yesterday morning. In the past I would have done some kind of crazy cardio session and/or majorly restricted calories. Things are a little different now though, no crazy cardio and I just got back to my normal way of eating. The scale went up and it will go back down again.

    My off week is over and I was ready to get back to the gym. Much easier coming back to a 60% week with 3x12’s than 90% with 4x5’s. Before I took off for the week I got my progress for the last cycle. Adrianne knows me well and knows I freak out a little when things don’t seem to be increasing. She reminded me that the lower body increases were pretty big and it’s normal to not see an increase in the upper when this happens.

    Glad we don't have much humidity here though it's getting toasty warm in the valley in particular. Think it was around 100 today. I miss having trails to walk. Much nicer than just along the streets.

    100 degrees is 100 degrees, no matter the humidity. I love walking the trails. I split time between home and where I teach and both areas have great trails. When I have to walk the neighborhoods I usually have to listen to music or podcasts. On the trail I often listen to nothing and just enjoy the surroundings.
