Weight DVDs and Hug a Runner Day

Turning to DVDs
Last night I managed to get in biceps, shoulders, triceps from Cathe's High Reps DVD. I'm liking doing the DVDs right now because I don't have to really think. However, I'm ready to get back to the heavier weights vs the higher reps.

Though, it has been a great shake-up for my muscles changed up to the lower weights, higher reps. It's amazing how sore you can actually get from just changing up the rep patterns repeatedly throughout a set.

The big plus with these workouts, however, has been how short they tend to  be even if you do a set a second round (yes I do this). I need to really do some research and find some effective, but also shorter heavy weight workouts. I had gotten in such a rut of the very standard, boring 3x8 sets usually as supersets.

They go quickly, but can be really boring and easy to just go through the motions. Of course, that could partially be that I'm working out at home so that can get a little boring sometimes as well.

Where do you turn for new ideas, workouts, rotations, etc? Do you get bored working out at home?

Hugs
I feel pretty boring lately. Not really posting any workouts or new recipes. I feel like I've gotten in a bit of a rut with dinners too. I guess it happens though. You get a little lazy (or too busy) and just stick to the tried and true basics.

Today the plan is to get in a run after work with my running partner. She's off work so we can hit the pavement earlier and get the run done before the light runs out.

Speaking of running, did you know it's Globally Organized Hug A Runner Day (G.O.H.A.R.D)? Really, it is, I'm not cleaver enough to make this stuff up ;-)


Did you hug a runner today?
