Drop It Like a Squat
Last night was just a typical night in my gym. Three easy miles on the treadmill and then some squats and other weight stuff.
I’m still trying to figure out what the right max squat weight is for me right now. Last year around this time I maxed out at 150lbs, but that’s too much when I’m trying to work on running goals at the same time. Last night I did a warmup set and then 3X5 with 60lbs. I think I’ll work my way back up to 100lbs and stop there until marathon training is over in the fall. We’ll see……. I already feel sore from the 60s!
Yesterday we celebrated National Running Day, and today I am celebrating Pet Appreciation Week!
I adopted Cecil in November 2007 when he was three months old. Here are a couple of pictures from this first night home!
Cecil weighed just under 2lbs in these pictures, and he was feisty as can be!
All throughout his first year he had an obsession with dragging my bras out of the laundry and fighting with them. I am so grateful he no longer drags them around the house… it was especially embarrassing when he would do it in front of guests!
He had so much energy as a young cat that I bought him a gym, and I used to take him out on a leash for walks.
He didn’t like the gym, and only played with it a total of one time. I was so disappointed because I thought he would love it!
For a brief period of time Cecil allowed me to dress him up in little shirts. This one says “King of Hearts” on it : )
He knows he’s cute!
I celebrate Cecil this week and every other week because he’s my little baby cat and I love him.
I just really wish I could take him out running with me like people do with their dogs!
Did you have a pet growing up? What kind?
– I wanted a dog sooooooo badly but I am highly allergic so my parents got me a cat and I’ve been a cat person ever since!
