kauricat: (weights)
Tonight was leg night and I did a little more weight on my squats. I'm beginning to think I may need to do exercises specifically to strengthen my knees, because those are my weak spot. Or maybe I'm just afraid those are my weak spot and I am babying them. They used to (the right one especially) give me trouble going up and down stairs. That does not happen anymore (Yay), but sometimes they'll still pop funny or feel really strained when I'm working out. I try really hard not to bend them out over my toes and keep them straight above my heels, but maybe I'm failing. I don't know.

Anyway, it was a decent workout. My quads were burning at the end of the last squat set, the leg extensions were not impossible but felt resistant enough, the calf raises were easier, and the bent leg hip extensions (donkey kicks) were fine.

We partially took apart the elliptical and made the squeak better, but we need to get back in there because it started coming back at the end of the night. Or maybe it just doesn't like Pres Man as much as it likes me. ;)

I took a nap tonight. I wish I would stop doing that, but I am just so danged tired when I get home.

Tomorrow (today, really) should be a pretty good day. I will have time to work on the house/yard and maybe I will get my own set of dumbbells.

Oh! And my new pajama jeans arrived! They fit, so that's awesome. Now if my new work pants will get here and also fit (they have shipped, so I'm hoping it'll be this week yet), I'll be super pleased.
