Super Saturday

Saturday was a pretty good training day. I wanted a long run, somewhere between 10 and 14 miles. I ran 12.15 with a few pickups. The temps were a little cool for April 3, high 50s, low 60s, but that made for good running. The workout went like this:

1 - 3.11 @ 11:14
2 - .1 @ 6:00
3 - 3.11 @ 12:06
4 - .1 @ 6:34
5 - 3.11 @ 12:42
6 - .27 @ 8:11
7 - 2.34 @ 14:01
8 - walk .71
total - 12.15 running, .71 walking.

After some protein, I worked in the yard and lifted weights. Mostly I mowed which is how I like to lift. I do a set and then make a few rounds with the mower. I focused on the bench press and did:

18 X 100
8 X 120
5 X  140
2 X 150
1 X 155
2 X 150
4 X 140
4 X 140
4 X 140
8 X 120

On the swim pull, I did just one set of 60 X 26.5.

Later, I took Jeff to the recycle bins and we walked .49. We would have done more, but he had been outside several hours and I didn't want to over tire him.

I wish I could have swum, but there are only so many hours in a day. I was pretty pooped when Jeff and I got home. After a bath and supper, I hung out with Luvie and we watched Shane on TCM. Good day, good cat, good movie.
