hey hey folks...
Gave the new playlists its first go around today. I hit the gym for a 600 meter swim and some light weight training. This is a "Rest Day" for marathon training, but I feel it's important for me to stay in the heat of the battle. On rest days it is ok to do "non impact work outs" (i.e. swimming stretching etc.).
So I followed my little electronic personal trainer's advice and just did some stretching, swimming, and then the lightest weight work out ever. It was a full body work out.
Leg lifts, chest flys, lat pull downs, lower back extensions, seated rows, tri push downs, dips, curls, chest press, and some more leg lifts. each exercise was 3 sets of 10. light weights. My goal was to put tension on the muscles, without that pesky soreness... seeing as how I haven't lifted weights in months... I think it was the right call.
