Today's mile was 6:27 (I think. Give or take 2 seconds)
I was also drafted to do the 4x8 for the first time ever in my 2.(however long this season has been so far) seasons. I don't like relays >_<

I think I'd like 4x800
I did 4x200 back in the day but I'm just not a sprinter

I can't sprint unless I'm in a runner's high

Link to original post for reference.

I've been working out for six full months, and boy, do I not regret it one bit. I've made so much progress that I never thought I could make, working out twice a week (Tuesday/Friday). Here's my average workout, as of today:
Chest press: 4 sets of 10; 115 lbs.
Leg extensions: 4 sets of 10; 85 lbs.
Bicep curls: 4 sets of 5; 25 lbs. (each arm) / Tricep extension: 4 sets of 10; 30 lbs. (both arms)
Shoulder press: 4 sets of 10; 40 lbs. / Going to find some sort of other leg exercise to do on Fridays

And, exercises I do every day:
Sit-ups: 3 sets of 40. I alternate days with V-ups: 3 sets of 15.
Side planks: 3 sets, hold for 15 seconds.


Currently goals are to add 10 lbs. to both the chest press and leg extensions, get comfortable with doing 4 sets of 10 for the bicep curls at the same weight, get up to 40 lbs. for the tricep extensions (definitely my weakest point), get up to 60 lbs. with the shoulder press, and generally continue to improve on daily exercises, before I go back to school on the 26th (I'll probably take the first week of classes off so I can readjust, then hit the gym again).

Physically, I can definitely see a visible improvement in the way my body looks, and have gained around 15 lbs. (just got weighed at the doctor's office), reaching an all-time high weight of around 130 lbs.

Hey, that's pretty good! Congrats on your results, keep it up :D

I've also been getting stronger myself, increased my bench and squat by 15 kilos. I'm seeing a lot of progress in my legs especially which is nice.

I'm about to start a new type of workout called a card workout. Basically, you assign a type of exercise to each suit & then you shuffle the cards & draw randomly; the suit you draw is the exercise you do, the number on the card is how many reps you do for it (you also place number values on Aces, Kings, Queens, Jacks, and if you want, the Jokers). The idea is to try & go through all 52 cards

Has a gym inside the dorm

*insert Bad Luck Brian here*

Machines are awful


So my options are:
1. Go down to the actual school gym (down a massive flight of stairs).
2. Do everything with free weights (dumbbells).

*frantically Googles how to do a free weight chest press*

Just consider your walk to the school gym as part of your workout
