Workout #84 (Cardio)

Well, I may have slept in this morning, but as promised, after missing 4 days of workouts out of pure laziness, I’m back in the saddle again. I went to the gym this afternoon, did a full cardio workout and a group up chest exercises in preparation for a full chest and back workout tomorrow.

40 minutes on the elliptical. I burned 567 calories, went a distance of 3.04 miles, and and maintained a pace of 82 RPM with a peak of 113 RPM. It felt good though. Then I did a set of chest in preparation for my chest and back workout tomorrow.

Group 1                  1st Set      2nd Set      3rd Set
-------                  -------      -------      -------
Chest press               12/115       12/115       11/115
Kickbacks                12/35LR      15/35LR      15/35LR
Crunches                      30           30           30

It felt good. I’ve been feeling guilty over not having gone to the gym in the last couple of days, and I was glad that I made it in today, even though my schedule got thrown out of whack. Chest and back tomorrow…
