Hackyed for a really long time today (prolly around an hour), and broke my record twice. Once with 50 and then 47. I was so stoked.

Also took like a half an hour walk. I am trying to get a lot of sun before I head down to the Outer Banks in NC for vacation. That way I don't fry down there.

Anyone who's wondering why I am posting my hackying fun time...it is definitely something to get your heart beating. Sort of a mixture of caliensthics (Spelling?) and aerobics. Good fun stuff.

I think being a former vegetarian/long distance runner musta messed up my iron stores more than I thought. I figured I was safe when I started eating meat again, but I ate very little red meat, and there's not much iron in chicken and fish. Also I drink/ate just about every inhibitor of iron absorption there is (coffee, milk, soda, spinach, whole grains, etc). I have been wondering why I have been chronically fatigued the past couple of years, and after hours of scouring the internet, I determined I still must have been iron deficient even after taking up eating meat again. So in the past couple of days I have revamped my diet (no coffee/soda, more red meat, more plant sources of iron, and lots of vitamin c for better absorption). I don't know if its a placebo effect or if this was the solution, but today's lifting, I haven't felt a great session as this one in years. So for now, I plan on keeping up the higher iron diet for a little while, couple of months or so, to get my iron storage back to normal. I realize I probably should have gotten tested, but alas, I live in America without medical insurance. But anyways, here's what I did today (and felt SO SO SO pumped today)-

Deadlift-

135 x 10
275 x 6
255 x 7
205 x 6

Shoulder Press

65 x 10
125 x 6
115 x 7
115 x 6

Overhead Squat

65 x 10
85 x 8
95 x 6

Decline Bench

135 x 10
205 x 6
185 x 7

Chin ups

BW x 9
BW x 6

Curls (I thought I had one 75 instead of 85)

85 x 5
85 x 4
65 x 8

I decided to go on a long bike ride today. 7-8 miles out in the country. Pretty good time. I need to be able to bike because about 2 weeks from now I'll be biking to work :wink:

Now that I am back in school, and a lot closer to my job, I will inadvertenly (spelling?) be doing a lot more cardio. I have to park about half a mile away from campus in order to get a spot, and so that totals up at least a mile walking around campus, and I can now bike to work and plan on doing it 3 or 4 times a week until it gets really cold. It will be a total of about 20 mins of biking too and from. But I am actually gonna keep track of when I bike to and from work

Today I did

I did a lower workout today. But (gasp) I replaced my rear lunges. I tried the barbell hip thrusts, and aside from getting into position, they're pretty awesome. I also did glute bridges instead of rear lunges (I am trying to hit the glutes with rear lunges and the bridges seem to do a better job of it, so why not). I still need to get acclimated (spelling?) to both exercises, but I already like them. Thank you Mr. Glutes or whatever his name was. Anyways-

Barbell hip thrusts-

95 x 10
115 x 8
135 x 7
155 x 7

Straight legged Deads-

155 x 10
205 x 8
205 x 5

Squats/Good morning mix (I am not sure what to call it)-

95 x 8
95 x 8
95 x 9

Calf Raises-

165 x 9
165 x 9
165 x 10

Glute Bridges-

135 x 7
135 x 7
135 x 8
