Gonna Be Sore Tomorrow

As per boyfriend's post below/before mine, Brandon and I hit up the gym this afternoon. Only working mornings the next few days (and less than 30 hrs next week ... boo! and yay! i need money, but time and sleep would be AWESOME), so we can gym it up in the afternoon.

Did the typical warmup and then hopped on the stepmills for a little bit of cardio. I did 15 minutes of intervals and holy crap did my heart rate get up there. I usually don't really test mine (i know, i know, i should), but my heart felt like it was pounding crazily so I checked it and I was between 170 and 180 bpm which is CRAZY. I think. My lungs felt scratchy too, but that's also in part because I'm fighting off a pretty nasty cold.

After the stepmill, we headed to the weights. We did 3/10 dumbbell bench presses (i did them with 20s and about died) and then standing tricep extensions (the ones where you hold a dumbbell above your head and then lower it behind your head, rinse and repeat) and dumbbell curls until we couldn't do either anymore. Which for me, was about 10 and 20, respectively.

Then it was off to the standing calf raise machine where we did about 3/10 ... upping the weight. Boyfriend can kick my ass in arm exercises, but I can match him raise for raise on calves. What what.

Hopefully more tomorrow, but I know better than to make promises these days.
