Thursday, October 1: My birthday month began well fitness-wise with a 50+minute cardio workout undertaken on two treadmills because the incline on the first one began literally acting up after about 9 minutes:
Friday, October 2: A short, sharp chest, shoulders, triceps, and traps workout after band practice.
Saturday, October 3: Another 50-plus minute sweaty treadmill session:
Monday, October 5: Another marathon cardio session:
Wednesday, October 7: A shorter (yet more strenuous) cardio session due to time constraints:
Thursday, October 8: A 50-minute weights session after dinner. It wasn’t too strenuous, but I did quite a lot of sets: back, lats, biceps, forearms, calves, lower back, and sides.
Friday, October 9: I envisaged a long cardio session when I woke up, but a wee headache plus a desire to update other parts of my site saw me ratchet up the speed aiming to run 3 kilometres in under 15 minutes. I ran half that distance before some unexpected wheezing and a call from nature ended my run prematurely:
Saturday, October 10: The longer cardio session I had planned for yesterday finally happened!
Sunday, October 11: Weights! Chest, shoulders, traps, triceps, calves (a little bit), thighs, and hamstrings. My chest and shoulders were very sore the next day. My legs not so much.
Monday, October 12: Just a five-minute run/sprint. Shortest workout perhaps ever, but it sure got the heart rate up!
Wednesday, October 14: A slightly longer run tonight:
Thursday, October 15: A short core and abs workout ahead of a band practise session that ended up being cancelled.
Friday, October 16: Slightly faster and slightly longer run to celebrate yet another birthday:
Saturday, October 17: A killer weights session today ahead of tonight’s birthday concert! Back, biceps, lats, calves, lower back, and legs.
Tuesday, October 20: A shorter but necessary cardio session after a couple of days rest.
Wednesday, October 21: An even shorter cardio session which came hot on the heels of another pretty decent weights session: chest, shoulders, triceps, calves, and forearms:
Saturday, October 24: A 40ish-minute cardio session on a balmy Saturday evening. It was so balmy, I walked home!
Monday, October 26: A Monday evening weights session to start the week: back, lats, biceps, lower back, calves, and a little obliques.
Wednesday, October 28: Fifty minutes of cardio bliss:
Thursday, October 29: I was this close to skipping the gym today, but I resisted temptation! Just upper body weights tonight as winter announced its arrival: chest, shoulders, traps, and triceps.
