On Saturday we had a little coach’s meeting after practice to discuss what the plans were for the upcoming year and how we want to change things a bit. We were discussing a new approach to the group, and in that discussion, a joke was made about about how funny it would be if I were the throwing coach because of the size of my “guns”.
Yes – I do have noodle arms! I almost always have had noodle arms. BUT, I can still do push-ups!
Since I have time to go to the gym now – it is time to start incorporating weights back into my training. I have barely done any weight training at all this summer – other than the occasional breaking out in a plank or random set of push-ups. During the winter I go to the gym quite often, and during high school track season, I work out with the kids in the weight room, so I do get *some* weights in. Because I am not working today, I went to the gym!
Rather than driving to the gym, I ran there. I live fairly close to the local Goodlife, only 1.5KM, cutting through the OC Transpo Park and Ride. I ran there only at a talking pace, as it was a warm-up run, not a training run. It is an absolutely gorgeous day out – so I wore a tank top! Can’t say that I’ve worn my tank tops this often at this time of year!
At the gym I concentrated on arm weights. Oh, did I struggle! Let’s just say I was on the second lightest weight for every arm weight that I tried. So, yes, noodle arms are confirmed! I also did some leg weights and a few planks for good measure. After about 40 minutes, I ran home.
While at the gym, there was an older man there that looked very much like Breaking Bad’s Walter White – glasses, moustache and all! It was a little creepy, especially after last night’s series finale! Did you watch it? Even though I am only on episode 5, I did watch the show last night. It mostly made sense for me – but I figured the ending would be ruined unless I stayed off the twitter for the entire day. But, in the last fifteen minutes, Max had a nightmare, so I did miss a big section in the end. I figure it will take me a year to watch all the episodes!
What is your workout plan for today?
Do you frequent the gym?
Do you have noodle arms too?
