I've actually had two good days in the gym. I mean the kind where I'm gasping for air and sweating all over the floor. Knock on wood, my knee even cooperated!
This got me to thinking about goals that I want to accomplish in the gym, other than not hurting myself.
In running we have quantitative goals that we set, such as running a certain distance within a specific time.
We have PRs that have been set and need to be broken.
In the gym it's a little different. Of course I want to be able to bench press my weight for five reps! But is that a true goal for my gym workouts?
In Crossfit certain WODs are timed, giving individuals their chance to PR a certain workout, so they have quantitative results.
So I guess what I leading up to is, do we have the same desire in our gym workouts as we do with our running?
Do you put in the same effort in the gym as on the road?
