Friday, May 3: The month got off to a slow start. No gym sessions yet, but I walked 11 kilometers today if that counts.
Saturday, May 4: I celebrated Star Wars day with my first gym session of the month: chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, sides, lower back, and a 13-minute run. Some new Star Wars music accompanied me on the run.
Monday, May 6: A 47-minute workout a couple of hours after breakfast: back, lats, traps, biceps, forearms, lower back, calves, and one set of side extensions.
Tuesday, May 7: No gym today, but I walked a total of 13 kilometers, most of them in the evening.
Wednesday, May 8: A 20-minute morning treadmill run was followed by some weightless squats and leg extensions.
Friday, May 10: I was short of time, so I just did weights for about 30 minutes: chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, and lower back.
Saturday, May 11: Back in the gym, this time for 47-minute workout: back, lats, biceps, forearms, calves, and hamstrings.
Monday, May 13: My planned morning cardio session was shelved until after work. Instead, I did one set of side raises and 33 push-ups. I almost skipped the gym, but I made it there in the evening for a rare evening cardio session. It was a pretty long one, too (30 minutes and just over 6.2 kilometers). I also did a set of side extensions and lower back raises plus some weightless squats and leg extensions after my run.
Tuesday, May 14: An hour of weights was today’s exercise: chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, sides, lower back, calves, hamstrings, and forearms.
Wednesday, May 15: No gym today, and that was planned. I did, however, walk 14.6 kilometers, most of them in the evening long after I had last eaten.
Friday, May 17: Weights again late in the afternoon: back, lats, traps, biceps, forearms, hamstrings, calves, sides, and lower back. All that took exactly 53 minutes.
Saturday, May 18: Back in the gym in the morning despite not eating since well before yesterday’s workout. Today’s workout was shorter as a result, but I still had plenty of energy. A ten-minute treadmill run was preceded and followed by squats and leg extensions.
Sunday, May 19: No gym today, but I did walk about 16 kilometers throughout the day.
Monday, May 20: An hour of weights after work and before the final Game of Thrones episode: chest, shoulders, triceps, traps, sides, calves, hamstrings, and forearms. My chest and forearms were the most and I expect they’ll be very very sore soon.
Tuesday, May 21: Well, I didn’t feel quite as sore today as I had expected, but that’s OK. I didn’t make it to the gym, but I did walk a little over 12 kilometers.
Wednesday, May 22: Just enough time for a 15-minute run.
Friday, May 24: I began the day with a quick home workout: sides, lower back, and 33 push ups. Later in the day, an hour of weights: back, lats, traps, biceps. forearms, calves, hamstrings, another set of push ups, and more sides and lower back exercises.
Saturday, May 25: Just 26 minutes of weights today as that’s all I had time for: chest, shoulders, triceps, and a little more traps.
Monday, May 27: An 11-minute run was followed by some weights: thighs, hamstrings, calves, sides, and lower back.
That was it for the month.
