Interesting workout today. I ended up deviating from my plan and pushed the workout to this evening. Despite my best intentions, I did not get to bed early enough to be well rested for my workout this morning. Instead I went to work, rode the train to Michigan, and hopped in a cab to my hotel on a hill in Novi. By 7:30pm I had just checked into the hotel. All I'd eaten since breakfast was a bag of almonds, so I was starving. After some Mexican food and a fancy sizzling apple crisp desert, I was ready to roll. Luckily the area is hilly. I did:
Walk around for around an hour, up and down hills
25lb dumbell warm up - swings, snatches, squats, etc.
Goblet Squats: 5x25lbs, 35lbs, 50lbs, 60lbs, 70lbs, 70lbs
Single Leg Deadlifts: 5/5 x 15lbs, 35lbs, 50lbs, 50lbs
Turkish Get Ups: 3/3x35lbs
Walking Lunges: 2x16xBW
Swim and Stretch in Pool for 30 minutes
That's right! The hotel has dumbell pairs up to 50lbs! This is after the definite "No" I got when calling the front desk and asking "Does your fitness center have weights?". So, I brought my kettlebell for nothing. I got some weird looks from the middle aged guys riding their stationary bikes and walking on the treadmills, but it was a pretty good workout. I am interested to see if the single leg deadlifts make me sore. Lunges were brutal.
During my wandering, I learned there is a Trader Joes about a quarter mile away from here. I am planning to stop there for dinner tomorrow night. It's possible my co-workers will talk me out of it, but I think I will be ready for some simple food by then. The Mexican sat pretty heavy, I was getting close to losing it between sets of my workout.
The internet I'm using is $10 / day, so I'd better go do some work. The prices here are crazy.
