I love working my legs on Monday. Leg day is always tough, so it’s nice to do it after a couple of days of rest. I was feeling exceptionally good all day yesterday (it’s hard not to feel good when the weather is this incredible), and I was completely fired up by workout time.

The workout went extremely well (here’s the actual workout): +10 pounds on squats, same reps as last week; +5 pounds on leg extensions/+10 pounds on backyard barbell lunges (supersets), same reps as last week; +10 pounds on lying leg curls (each drop), same reps as last week except the final drop set (-1, -1, -2, -1). Adding 10 pounds to the lying leg curls was a last minute choice. I normally would add in 5-pound increments for that exercise, but I was feeling so good yesterday I thought I could handle a bigger jump in weight. I was right, and it was a great way to end the workout.

As I mentioned in the first paragraph, the weather has been phenomenal here. Yesterday while I was doing backyard lunges in the crisp, clean air under a cloudless blue sky I felt… well, I just wore out my backspace key trying find the appropriate words. I can’t do it. Even now as I think back to yesterday I feel peaceful and almost euphoric. I know it sounds a little silly talking about lunges in residential backyard like I was standing at the top of a mountain or something, but sometimes the most memorable moments happen at the most surprising times.

I’ve got a ton of work to do today, so I’d better wrap up and get going on it. I’ve opened the December “100 Challenge” for entry. Details are immediately below.
