How has your training been this week?
This week has actually been lighter on cardio and supposedly heavy on weights. I went to the gym with my wonderful (and patient) friend who last week helped me come up with an arm weights program and then this week it was time for legs…. I haven’t done any leg weights since was silly and hurt my back on the leg press many months ago and I realised how weak I was!
There was my friend pumping pretty heavy weights and there I was on very light weights in comparison and it hurt and I let her know about it and moaned away all through our session – I am surprised she didn’t put ear plugs in! She just looked over at me and smiled in that way I know she was thinking ‘come on lightweight – suck it up!’ so I pushed on.
I figure as I get older weights should be an important part of my training and also it will help me get stronger in my running and riding so I will grin and bear it but it’s not part of my training that I enjoy to be honest.
Do you do weights?
Do you enjoy it?
Has it helped in your running?
I’d love to hear your experiences – or am I the only light weight out there that whinges in weights sessions ?? 🙂
Have a great weekend – that’s me done for today 🙂
