Bike-commute day 12—home and weight training

At 17:20 I wondered, To the gym today? Maybe so, it's early enough, and I closed down my workplace by 17:30. So today is the first timed record of the commute with a "rest period" for a light weight training.

This weight training was pretty light, since I haven't been to the gym for about 10 days. Three sets each of bench press, prone flyes, military press, dumbbell curls, cable rows.

My typical workout that's part of a commute focuses on upper body, and if I go a second day in a row, that workout focuses on the abdominal core. It's usually only during the winter that I pay much attention to weight training for the legs.
