So I’ve learned to play Wonderwall on the guitar from start to finish without any many screw-ups. And I can sing along! This guitar learning thing is going famously.
In weight training news:
I finished up my most recent 8 week strength building routine. I made a few modifications in the last 4 weeks like supersetting arm exercises and increasing rest time to 2:00-3:00 squats, bench presses, and deadlifts.
I’m really happy with how much strength I’ve gained in the last 8 weeks. One guy at the gym told me that he wouldn’t want to mess with me after seeing me deadlift what was probably his body weight. Sweet.
Some of the increased I made in the last 8 weeks are:
-back squat by 30lbs (145lb to 175lb)
-bench press by 20lb (105lb to 125lb)
-leg press by 180lb (360lb to 540lb)
-chin-ups from hang (up to 2 from none)
-hammer curls by 5lb (25lb to 30lb)
Also I can now do 35 consecutive push-ups, that’s 1/3 of the way to my beast mode goal of 100.
I started a new workout 3 Day Circuit Workout for full body that I’ll be doing for the next 6 weeks. This one is heavy on the cardio/muscular endurance. I will alternate training days with cardio days (usually 3 to 5 mile runs).

Tonight I ran 5.2 miles which is the most that I have run since the marathon. I felt great, had a decent pace going, I only walked once, and I finished in 47:00. All in all, a good run!
