Training update – July 5, 2006

I decided to work on some conditioning today.

First, I went for a two-mile run. My time for the first mile was 8 minutes 40 seconds, and my time for the second mile was 8 minutes 56 seconds. The total time for the run was 17 minutes 36 seconds. It was good run. The weather was a little cooler.

After the run, Nathan and I went to the gym.

Leg lifts
Pull-ups (aka chin-ups, military and parallel)
Leg press
Hamstring flexor (called seated leg curls)
Hip adductors
Hip abductors
Seated row
Bar pulls (I think this is called the lateral pull-downs; it works the muscles next to the scapulae on the back)
Seated chest press
Shoulder fly
Shoulder lift (this is called the shoulder press)
Back extensor

Free weights:
Situps (on a incline bench; worked out the obliques as well by doing double punches during the situp)
Bicep curls
Pectoral fly
Weighted squats
Shoulder strengthening

Then I did 10 minutes on the bicycle to work out my knee. Afterwards, Nathan and I did some stretching to help the muscles relax. I’m so proud of Nathan – his stretches are getting much better. He says he wants to be able to do a side kick like Van Damme – hehe… fast, strong, and high. I have to admit Van Damme has some pretty smooth moves for some French dude.

After the gym, we headed home for some food and rest.

Official countdown: 51 hours left
