So now that I've decided to do the 100K this coming Oil Creek 100 (October 2011), I've decided that I needed to get into a real lifting schedule and get as strong as I can. I'm sensing that it is going to be something that is easier said than done.
My goal is to lift three times a week. I was gung-ho, ready to go yesterday and felt like I was having a great workout. I was on my last set using some free weights and my left arm went completely limp. I managed to punch myself right in the groin area with a 20 pound weight. Needless to say, I felt really dumb and hurt myself all at the same time. I vowed today would be a better day.
At the gym today, I was trying to put a 45 pound weight on the end of a bar and managed to pinch the side of my finger between the bar and the weight. Now my finger is a lovely shade of purple and is swelled up just a touch. *SIGH* I guess no one said it would be easy. At least there were fewer people in my audience today.
Guess we'll see what happens tomorrow.
