AMAZING JOB – I am in awe!

Nanci Q welcome- what did you do for one hour?

Tunridda, always inspring, Jillian couldn’t escape.

I’m back after a 4 day absence, I took a vacation day Friday as a gift to DH for his 50th birthday – we went out to dinner with friends, then to music, beer was involved.

But, that was then, today I’m back to being fit, I was going to just run instead of spinning, (because it is the B instructor) but, I ran into a friend on the Subway, so we went together – and the instructor seems to have heard some of the feedback – much more involved.

I finished with 30 crunches on the incline bench, 5 lb weight, setting 5 on the bench – can’t believe I can do this when I couldn’t do 1 a year ago!

Staying strong!

Everyone needs a break from time to time. And what better excuse than celibrating a big day with the hubby. Setting 5 on the incline is almost vertical woman! Isn't it great to see measurable progress .

Back to Crossfit this AM. The field study was cancelled this week because of wind. It isn't a very good idea to set fires when the wind's blowing 25 MPH. After 2 weeks off and the race on Sat. it wasn't my best performance, but it did feel great!

Got to the gym @ 5:30am, strength training for an hour. Chest,arms & back- felt good to be up so early and pumped
My legs are still tight and a lil sore from Sundays hilly 5mile race. I'm resting for the next few days, I got a 10k planned for Saturday.

Got my bike out and went for a short ride tonight. It's a start. Also walked 15 minutes to another office to pick up documents instead of driving - and did my sauna and yoga. Mary

Thanks for the welcome. I just walk for an hour.

Your “not best performance” is probably pretty stellar anyway, and being there is half the challenge. Please don’t burn the forests down, we need you taking care of them!

I love the early AM at the gym – my most powerful time!

If walking were how we got places we would solve obesity and climate change…

And NanciQ - don't say "just walking" you were doing it for an hour, thats steady movement!

I got a powerful run today – 3.5 miles in 31 minutes – which included a 3 minute cool down – I got high as a kite and started boot camp that way, they were laughing at my grin. In boot camp we finished with planks, I’d never done side planks before, but seem possible.
Stay strong!

Nice work Tunnrida

For me it was a good powerful run, which I slowed to a very mild walk at the end. I did 3.12 miles (5K) in 27 minutes and a few seconds, but wanted to have my heart rate down for yoga so slowed way down. Sadly, the yoga instructor didn't make it so we got some quiet time stretching on mats waiting for her, it actually felt pretty good but not as good as yoga.
