Muscles here I come! Lobsteriffic's Log


Recommended Posts

You are probably right. I keep meaning to google and see if other Stronglifts folks have a similar issue. Will probably try deads before squats next week.

 

This is such a squat-focused program. And I can tell, I've increased my squat by a LOT. But my deads are really lagging.

AM:

As many rounds as possible in 20 minutes of run 200 meters rest 30 seconds

I did 13 rounds, went a tiny bit over 20 minutes.

 

Since the time change it is sooo dark when I run in the AM on weekdays. Boo. Will probably use the treadmill more for weekday runs until it gets lighter out. The street I use for running intervals (not much traffic, large wide sidewalks, no traffic lights for about 800m) is kind of sketchy. I felt kind of scared this morning being out there by myself.

 

Lunch:

Mixed greens, spinach, navy beans, nutritional yeast, flax, hot sauce

Roasted kabocha squash

2 apples

 

Snack:

soy milk + protein powder

 

Dinner:

Huge salad with mixed greens, spinach, roasted cauliflower, baked tofu, nutritional yeast, flax, and tahini dressing

1 orange

AM:

5 min. warm-up jog

run 2 x 10 minutes rest 5 minutes between interval, then 2 x 2 minutes rest 1 minute between interval

 

I was on the treadmill and I have no idea what distance I covered each interval. I wish the treadmill had a lap button or something. Anyway, next time I should take a piece of paper with me so I can jot it down. My final distance was 3.66 miles or something like that, but that's including the warm-up jog as well as the treadmill going really slowly during the rest period.

 

Lunch:

Salad with lots of veggies + tofu

Apple

 

Snack:

2 apples

Soy milk + protein powder

 

Dinner:

Cabbage and navy bean soup

Baked kale with nutritional yeast

2 oranges

Oh my gosh me too!! It's citrus season here and I just can't get enough. The farmers market is always brimming with them!

 

We're both mandarin addicts lol I've just scoffed my 5th of the day, I stop myself at 5 in one day or it just gets plain mandarin crazy

Oh my gosh I notice such a huge difference in my legs already from rolling them out. The IT band hurt like hell while rolling, but felt amazing immediately after.
