It's true at my gym too, Fridays are way emptier. I did legs last night followed by 30 minutes on the elliptical

I was wondering where you were urban - good to see you back. Hey gerl - just 'cuz you go to the gym on Friday nite doesn't mean you don't have a life, it just means your life revolves around fitness (think of it that way ).

So don't try this a home: Yesteday was a very hilly 5 mile trail run followed by an hour of olympic lifting (snatch and cleans). It actually worked out pretty well, but I invoked my adult priveledge to nap yesterday PM. And I am feeling the energy low today. Tomorrow as a planned rest day too, so hopefully by Tues my reserves will be restoked.

Beautiful day for a walk and then I dug my bike out. It was too nice outside not to enjoy it. Mary

Welcome Phillip – sounds like a fast run!
Kimbur and Crazigerl – I was one of the people not at the gym on Friday alarm clock “malfunction”!
Nice to see you again Mule, good work!
Pam, I’m glad to know it’s an adult privilege to nap!
Mary, enjoy your nice day – we’re supposed to have a great week so I’ll try to be outside too!
Today was a fast mile (for me, 9 minutes) followed by weight lifting.
Stay strong!

Thanks for the perspective RBski. lol. Today was definitely Monday, gym was packed. Have to think about switching to Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday.

Love your avatar Kumochi, glad you used a beautiful day wisely. It was super windy and cold. Branches flying everywhere, scared the crap out of the dog.


Went to the gym, attempted to do an engaged workout but for some reason my butt has been dragging the last couple of days. So did steady state cardio for 45 minutes and shoulders.
Have to channel Abby in the energy department.

Not always, some days each of us has more energy than others. Today in Spin Class I decided “everyday does not have to be a personal best” – the instructor must live in my head, at that moment he said “OK folks give it your all, you’ve got 30 seconds more on this one” – and so I did. It does feel great! I followed with crunch time, and had a pleasant memory of working with one of the trainers on the decline bench who pushed me saying “go all the way back, even if you need to use your hands to start the next one” – and I had to – now I can’t use my hands because they are holding a weight.

Thanks for the encoragement Pam – keeps me going!

There was one guy in the weight room who blew my mind – I know, it’s not a competiton, and it’s not polite to stare, but he was doing pull ups unassisted (in itself impressive), with a 15 lb dumbell hanging from his weight belt. No, I’ll never be him, I don’t even want to be, but I expect he’s h aving the same joy in that dumbell that I am in moving from 25 crunches to 30.

Have fun today!
