Shoulder Burner

I wasn’t planning on working out last night, but given how the rest of the week is shaping up, it became apparent that I needed to go. I guess it was a good thing as the soreness of Tuesday’s workout hasn’t yet set in.

I don’t normally put the warm up in here, but hell, since it took so much out of me, I will. It was:


  • 10 Jumping jacks
  • 10 Squats
  • 10 Push ups
  • 10 Sit ups


2000m row. (!!!)

I have never had to row that much. I can’t really say that I pushed myself as much as I would have if the clock was running. I paced myself and came in just under 10 minutes (for just the row) at around 9:39. Not too bad.

Last night’s fun time workout consisted of:

15 – 30 – 45 {

  • Squat
  • Push up
  • Push press (Rx 65lb)


My time was 11:58.

This one was pretty damn hard. The first sets aren’t bad at all. The “suck” factor comes in the last set when you have to do 45 of everything. I think I had to do my push ups (after about 10) in sets of 2 and 3. I was able to get 8-10 per set on the push presses. When I started the last set, the clock read close to 8 minutes. I was really shooting for a sub 10 minute time last night, but it just wasn’t in the cards.

In other news, my parents are here visiting! It’s so nice to have them here. Although the visits are always too short, I am trying to make the most of it amidst all of the other things that have to get done like house cleaning, house decorating, Christmas shopping, cooking, etc. Oh, and work… did I mention work? Thank goodness there are just two days left until vacation. Maybe then I will have some time to do the things I need to do to get ready for Christmas.
