bmyers workout log
Set a new records for myself, I made the mile in 8 minutes and 24 seconds on the elliptical. Heart rate was in the 160s by the end of the mile, but came down quickly when I slowed the pace. I didn't think I would ever break the 9 minutes mark, but finally it happened. I guess now the goal will be to see if I can break the 8 minute mark.
Moving along with the 5x5. So far, been able to increase weight each time like the plan has it scheduled.
I'm at the half way point or just over it for the 5x5 12 week plan.

Squated a 115 lbs 25 times;
OH press is 90 lbs 25 times;
Deadlift 185 lbs 5 times;
BP 90lbs 25 times;
Barbell rows of 110 lbs 25 times.

So, I'm pleased with the progress I'm making following the plan. On the days that I do the 5x5, I'm also doing additional machine workouts to add to it. On the off days (Tuesday and Thursdays) I doing cardio. Been hitting the elliptical harder. I'm making improvements there, now I have to maintain between 5.5-6 MPH rate to keep my heart rate above 114 beats per minute. Use to be just looking at the machine got my heart beating faster than that.

I'm guessing it is all working because Rhonda commented today while I was getting dressed that she can see some big improvements in my arms and chest. I told her I didn't see that much. She walked over and poked me in the chest and said see, this isn't soft anymore.

Well, if she is happy, I'm happy.
