Started a new contract today so had all the usual faffing around getting a pc and a logon and an access card. Nobody EVER thinks to organise these things before you turn up.
Tonight I went to the gym for some lifting of heavy stuff. Normally I don’t push myself too hard with leg exercises (because then I’d be all buggered for running) but tonight I wanted to see how heavy I could go on the leg press, just for my own amusement. I tried 80 kgs and that was fine, so did a set at 90 kgs. Still fine so went up to 100 kgs. Even that wasn’t a major effort. Either I’m going to be as sore as hell tomorrow or else I’m going to have to try harder next time.
Before I went, I made a protein smoothie – milk, banana, vanilla yoghurt with honey, protein powder, nutmeg and vanilla essence. It was awesomely good but I felt too full to go to the gym after drinking it. Next time I’ll save it for post-workout.
