I went for a mtn bike ride tonight. We were riding for nearly and hour and a half. It was a wonderful ride--the temperature was perfect, there was a light breeze, and the light was beautiful. I felt pretty good considering I haven't ridden regularly since last fall.

Just got back from tonight's mountain bike ride. This one was just over an hour. We bike at two parks regularly. One is easier than the other. Last time we rode the easier one, tonight the more challenging one. When I haven't ridden the tougher one in a while, I forget the difference between the two. But the tougher one is also more fun.

I took my bike to OC with me, but got in only one ride. Thursday night I rode for an hour and a half after the conference was over for the day. I had planned on riding around all afternoon today, as the conference ended at noon, but it was much colder than I had anticipated (I had only shorts and short-sleeved jersey which was no where near enough clothing) and then rain rolled in. Oh well, at least I got that one ride in.

I lost my computer (I had one on my road bike and one on my mtn bike and I lost both--grrr) so I don't know any stats on my ride like how many miles it was.

Sunday (all wgt in lbs):
Deadlift: 65 x7, 130 x5/5/5
Calf Press (one leg at a time): 130 x7, 190 x5/5/5
Chest Dips: -70 x5, -30 x3/2/3
Upright Barbell Row: 30 x6, 55 x4/5
Barbell Bent-Over Row: 55 x7, 105 x5/4/4
Narrow-Grip Chinup: -80 x5, -50 x3/3/3

I am going to drop upright barbell row. I hurts to do them. I'm not sure what I'll replace them with. Perhaps more overhead/military presses. Maybe with dumbells.

Monday:
Mountain bike ride, about an hour and half. I am so out of biking shape. I am truly wiped at the end of my rides. But it feels good. And the park we rode at last night is so pretty. It's around a huge lake and last night the sun was starting to go down and there was all this orange light over the lake. It's hard to take in the scenery without riding into a tree, though!

Tuesday at the gym (all weight in pounds):

Squats: 75 x5, 115 x3, 145 x2/4
Calf Press (one leg at a time): 130 x7, 190 x5/5/5
Incline Dumbell Press (weight per dumbell): 15 x7, 35 x4/3/3
Rear Delt Row: 45 x7, 70 x5/5/5
One-Arm Dumbell Row: 25 x7, 55 x5/5/5
Wide-Grip Pullup: -100 x5, -60 x2/2/2

I am doing something slightly different with squats because I really want to work on getting properly low. So the first two sets, I go all the way to proper parallel. On the last two heavy sets I go as low as I can, but it's not at low as for the first two. With time I hope they will all be to proper parallel.

Thursday night's trip to the gym (all wgt in lbs):

Squat: 75 x6, 115 x5, 145 x4/5
Standing Calf Raise: 45 x7, 70 x5/5/7
Barbell Bench Press: 45 x7, 85 x3/3/2
Barbell Shoulder Press: 30 x6, 60 x3/3/3
Cable Row: 50 x7, 105 x5/5/5
Lat Pulldown: 50 x7, 100 x5/3/5

I figured out a way to do standing calf raises so I don't have to use the leg press machine any more. There's a weight belt, so I just used that to attach weight to myself and I did the standing calf raises on a wood block.

Tuesday at the gym (all weight in pounds):
Squats: 75 x5, 120 x5, 145 x5/5
Calf Press (one leg at a time): 45 x8, 90 x8/8/8
Incline Dumbell Press (weight per dumbell): 15 x7, 35 x5/3/4

Wednesday:
Mountain bike ride, again about an hour and a half long. This was at the more challenging park and was loads of fun. I had a good spill. I was approaching an unfamiliar stream crossing. I saw where the path led but thought I would drop in to the stream a little earlier because the path was muddy looking. Bad idea. The stream and the mud at the bottom were deeper than I thought, and when my front wheel landing it sunk in and stopped moving. I went right over the handlebars and landing in the stream. I didn't hurt myself much (just a couple of bruises) but I was sopping wet for the rest of the ride. Luckily, it was warm!

I went to the gym on Sunday, but I have managed to lose my log sheet from that day, so I don't know exactly what I did. Bummer. I do know that I did 75# x5, 125# x5, 145# x5/5 for squats.

I should have gone mountain biking last night and to the gym tonight, but I am not feeling well. I don't know what's up, but I have abdominal pain and last night had aches and chills. Today it's just the abdominal pain. I hope I'm better tomorrow so I can bike.

I finally went to the gym tonight. I didn't do anything last week--no gym and no biking--because I was sick. I'm still not feeling great (stomach troubles) but it's a little better and I am learning to ignore it. I was on my own today.

Sunday (all weight in pounds):
Deadlift: 70 x7, 140 x5/5/5
Calf Raise: 40 x12, 90 x12/12/12
Chest Dips: -70 x5, -30 x2/4/4
Hang Cleans: 45 x5, 60 x5/5/5
Barbell Bent-Over Row: 55 x7, 110 x3/3/3
Narrow-Grip Chinup: -80 x5, -50 x2/2

I am totally wiped out now because I didn't leave enough time and really had to rush the last three exercises as the gym was about to close. So I had much less rest time between sets and exercises than usual and had to superset the rows and chin ups (and still couldn't fit in the last set).

This week it's not looking good for biking. My buddy is taking her bike in to the shop and won't be able to ride and I have a rehearsal on Wed, one of my usual biking days. I should be able to get to the gym though.

I have not yet posted my workout for last Thursday, so here's that one and the workout from tonight. All weight is in pounds.

Thursday:
Squats: 75 x5, 135 x3, 145 x1/5
Calf Press (one leg at a time): 140 x5, 180 x5/5/5
Barbell Bench Press: 45 x7, 85 x3/2/2
Barbell Shoulder Press: 30 x7, 60 x4/3/3
Cable Row: 55 x7, 110 x5/4/3
Lat Pulldown: 50 x7, 100 x4/4/4

Tuesday:
Deadlift: 75 x6, 145 x5, 145 x1, 155 x1, 165 x1
Calf Press (one leg at a time): 120 x7, 180 x5/6/5
Chest Dips: -70 x5, -30 x5/4/4
Hang Cleans: 45 x5, 65 x5/4/4
Barbell Bent-Over Row: 65 x6, 110 x4/4/3
Narrow-Grip Chinup: -80 x5, -50 x3/2/3

Today was cool because there was a guy there who was actually doing deadlifts and cleans and he gave me some helpful advice about my hang cleans. He came over and asked me how long I had been doing cleans and I took the opportunity to ask him for feedback on my form. It's just cool to see other people doing stuff like that. He is literally the only other person I have seen DL in that place. I hardly even see people squat. It will be cool if I see him around occasionally.

Wednesday:
Mountain bike ride, around an hour and half. It was a lovely day. But I fell again, in the same stupid stream. This time I landed in a dry spot so I didn't get all wet, but I did land on my knees and scrape them up a bit. Other than that I am okay. I have to learn how to handle that stupid stream. The problem is that the entry is all degraded and muddy.

Thursday (all weight in pounds):
Squats: 75 x5, 135 x5, 145 x5/1
Calf Press (one leg at a time): 120 x7, 180 x6/6/6
Incline Dumbell Press (weight per dumbell): 20 x7, 35 x4/4/3
Rear Delt Row: 45 x7, 75 x5/5/5
One-Arm Dumbell Row: 25 x7, 50 x5/5/5
Wide-Grip Pullup: -100 x5, -60 x2/2/3

Tonight at the gym, some guy told me that I am lifting too heavy. :? He said that he worries that I might hurt myself. I told him that I'm careful and that if I have any pain I'll back off.
