We have been working out at the Y for almost 3 months now and I am very impressed that we both have been maintaining a regular workout schedule for the majority of it (there was that 2 week period around Christmas...).
I am very happy with my progress in the weight lifting arena. Thus far I have lifted a total of over 62,000 lbs! Given that I haven't really lifted a weight since we had to for high school basketball, (and really, why was lifting weights a requirement for bench warmers like me?!), I don't really know if that is a good amount or not. I just think of it this way: That's 62,0000 lbs I hadn't lifted before.
It must be having some effect as Nate has noticed my back and arm muscles now when giving me massages. The other morning, after a particularly grueling weight workout, I couldn't get out of bed because I was too sore. I tried to garner some sympathy by stating, "It's tough being buff". All I got was a big laugh.
In other non-running related workout endeavors, my swimming is not progressing as smoothly. Nate has been a great coach and I think that my form has improved due to some foam device that I stick between my thighs (wow..reading THAT out of context is funny). But I think that my runner's lung capacity hasn't really translated to a swimmer's lung capacity. Still working on that one...
