Back to Weight Training

I got stuck in a meeting this afternoon so ended up almost 2 hours late coming home. This kind of blew away my plan of riding my bike the 10K to the swimming pool for some swimming. So instead I decided it is a good time to get back into my weight training routine which I discontinued during my marathon tapering. Although I only work out with dumbbells and some light weight on the barbell I still find a lot of excuses not to do it. Running and swimming no problem! Biking, when it's not dark outside or too nasty, but with weight training I need an extra kick in the pants.

After running through my normal set I did a set of squats and some curls, then a couple sets of pushups and situps. That was enough to feel like I did something, it has been a while!

My work life is about to get more complicated, I have to assume some tasks from a person who is leaving the company, this will mean I have to make every second count at work. I guess no more daydreaming about the next run ;-)

i so hear you on the weight training. i really like it when i do it but on some days it really takes an extra effort to start up a session!
Jack, don't you think it would be more beneficial to do running rather than weight training, especially as you keep finding excuses not to do it?
Or is it the Schwarzenegger look that you're trying to achieve?
Hi Thomas, actually I am more interested in total body fitness. I've been running about 2 1/2 years and have strong legs, the rest of me is sagging and weak!
And no more blogging at work either! :D
