Weights!

I've been choosing my holiday reading! The Hobbit reread is one, and Jennifer Kloester's bio of Georgette Heyer is another. Also, probably the third Ben Aaronovitch urban fantasy.

I went back to the weight room last night. It's been almost a month, I think, because I was feeling low-energy for about a week before I definitively came down with the cold that turned into bronchitis. So, I can feel it today already...but I was pretty much back to normal so far as lifting went.

Details for those who aren't bored:

I did deadlifts first, 50 pounds on the bar, 3 sets of 10. Then 30 pounds for bench presses, 2 sets of 10 - that made me cough, and my arms didn't feel that powerful towards the end. I waited around for a rack (luckily, there was one non-rack-hogger!) and did 70 on the barbell for squats, 3 sets of 15, which brought my heart rate right up. (I don't go as low as I probably should, either, since my knees won't take it.) I finished up with some flys, only 40 pounds instead of my usual 50 on the machine, then the seated row machine, 100 pounds, 3 sets of 10. Then half an hour on the elliptical, for 2.02 miles.

Ooh, do report back on the Georgette Heyer, as and when. I've only read Jane Aiken Hodge's bio, which kind of wants to be a hagiography but doesn't quite work; I came away thinking that Heyer was a thoroughly unpleasant snob, and that Hodge admired her far too much. Which kind of dented my pleasure in both women's work. That'll pass, but I would be interested in another perspective.
