Back to the gym

Sunday night I caught that awful cold, now its at the ending part when I am impatient and ready to get back to my normal activities. The hope for tonight is treadmill warm up 4.0 and 5.7 intervals for one mile. Squats, 3x3x 130, 3x5x 120, but I am giving myself a break if this doesn't pan out due to illness. Overhead press 1x8x 45, 1x8x 55, 2x5x 60, Romanian deadlift, 2x5x 95. That will be enough. I'll update after the session.

Here is what happened: warmup 1 mile, 4.0 and 5.7 intervals, went like a dream. Squats, 1x10x air, 1x8x bar, 1x5x 65, 1x5x 85, 1x5x 105, 1x3x 115, 1x3x 125, 3x3x 115. Not great but not bad for being sick. Overhead press, 1x8x bar, 3x8x 55. Romanian deadlifts, 3x5x 95. Then I decided to add a mile run/walk cooldown to the session, 4.0 and 5.7 and, while not as enjoyable as the warmup mile, it was still good.

I could seriously do all cardio all the time but the flat butts of the serious cardio women in their 40s scares me off. I'd rather be a little fluffy with a good round high ass then have abs and pancake butt.
