Musing about lifting

Mik’s break from swimming is over, which means I’m on my own now if I want to keep weight training. The good news is I do want to keep weight training! The bad news is I need to figure out what my own goals are (now that I no longer have Mik’s goals as my guiding principle) and how to achieve them.

I’m very jealous of an online friend who has been blogging about her powerlifting adventures, so I’m taking that as a sign that I need to a) find some sort of plan I can really get behind, b) follow through, and c) track everything so I can see my own progress. Of course, I already have a gym-related goal for April that I’m tracking, so I need to keep that in mind, too, and not go overboard with an extra new thing.

On the other hand, I’m back in limbo as far as work—it seems that both major projects I was planning on are now up in the air—so I might as well go live at the gym until that all gets sorted out.


  1. YAY TRACKING! Can you find a friend you can train and train yourself at the same time? Also, do you have the Rippetoe "Starting Strength" DVD and book?....

  2. Hmm, no. It looks interesting, but I have a strong aversion to spending money/acquiring possessions. Will look at the library.
