Workout #75 (Chest & back)

Up at 4:30 AM after not getting to sleep until after 11 last night. Ugh! Still, it was warm when I left the house (had to have been about 55) and that put in a good mood. And I felt pretty good about the workout overall, although I’m still not quite back to where I was before I got sick.

I’m still not doing a full set of 125 lbs on the chest press. The closet I’ve come is 10 reps, but I’m keeping at it. When I left the gym this morning, it still felt warm out and that felt good too. I didn’t need my jacket or sweatshirt. It’s getting warmer this week. I noticed they are dismantling the ice rink just outside the gym.

Cardio tomorrow morning (and then off to Orlando!)
