Pump It Up

Didn't run today (oh, the leg soreness ...), but did get back to the gym to lift the core and upper body.

As I said, we first did the core. We did these ball twist things on a decline ab bench (start in situp position; take medicine ball, rotate to side, sit back up, pass ball off, return to starting position, rinse, repeat), planks, reverse crunches and this other ab thingy where you keep your legs in the air, your partner pushes them down and you raise them back up. They suck - that's all you need to know.

From then on, it was trainer Brandon and arms. We did some curls, lying tricep extensions, shoulder raises and seated rows. Doesn't seem like much, I know, but I'm sure I'll be feeling it all in the next two days!

Here's hoping the weather's good tomorrow for cardio purposes ...
