A short hiatus

Labor Day weekend started on Thursday for me but I didn't realize that it would mean no exercise for 3 days!  It felt a bit weird to not have any plans to run, bike or lift from Friday through Sunday but that's what happened when I devoted all my time to fixing up my basement.  It's still not completely done but it is in better shape now for a home gym and fun area.  I took a break from home improvement on Monday and went for a 6.5 mile run on the greenway.  It wasn't too bad but I really need to increase my mileage!  And I got back to lifting today:

50 lbs 5 reps
60 lbs 5 reps
65 lbs 7 reps (and I failed on the 8th)
Back squats
70 lbs 5 rep
80 lbs 5 reps
95 lbs 10 reps
Push presses 
3x20 reps 55 lbs completed 20 reps within 1 minute, rest 1 minute, then repeat
Good mornings
3x10 reps 55 lbs
I'm much more into the lifting now and look forward to these days.  Now I'm off for an easy mountain bike ride in Crabtree on my singlespeed! It's good to be back in active mode.
