Yea, the air can get a bit chewy down here. For the most part air quality improves dramatically at night, so most of us are AM runners. Once rush hour starts the pollution builds back up so that by noon or so, it can be pretty bad.

Ya, I guess you would have to plan your runs a lil better than up here, although our pollution seems to be getting worse. I would also imagine the air would be cleaner along the coastal areas, thought would be fun to run on the beach in the early am.

Worked out twice today! Yippee.
Lunch time:
10 min elliptical, dumbbell exercises, finished off with balance ball crunches

After work:
30 minutes on the elliptical, pushups, stretched my sore muscles over the balance ball, then on to some more dumbbell exercises followed by deadlift and military presses (5 X 3 on those last two).

Air pollution affects on plants is my research specialty and I can tell you that Sac's air is pretty bad! Not quite SoCal. But you guys have a lot of agricultural pollutants up there the we don't have here. Just 'cuz you can't see it don't mean it aint there

Wow! You are killing it girl! Is your stationary rowing on a machine? That is about the only piece of mechanical equipment us CrossFitters use. I am one of the few in the gym who actually likes rowing, but 15 minutes is a long time!

NICE! I bet those abs are getting tight!

CrossFit for me this morning. Finally got a chance to do Turkish Get-Ups. (I couldn't possibly explain them, so if you are curious google them). It seems that I always miss the workouts that have them programmed. We were doing them for form rather that time - I really liked them. Great core work.


Abby, dear Abby where are you???

Didn't have time to head to the gym, so I did this:

(40) Jumping jacks

I plan to do WAY more today!

Welcome Behlor,

Sorry folks, I've been MIA, and although I've read and enjoyed your posts, I can't respond. I had a lot of life interfering with fitness, but today was a wonderful run (3.5 miles in half an hour), followed by boot camp. I thought I had strained my knee running, it was a little sore, but the dynamic stetching at the start of boot camp solved it completely!

Have a good, strong day!

Abby

You've come to the right place to move from "horrendously out of shape" to something you are proud of - I did it with these people rooting me on!

Boot Camp means different things to different people - I'm quite sure I couldn't handle some of them. Ours is a half hour class where we divide into groups (there were 12 of us today, so three groups of 4). We do a dynamic stretching warm up (I've always run first, so the heart is nice and ticking), the dynamic stretching consists of different walks across the gym (for example, hold your knee to the chest for a few seconds, step forward, do with other leg). After that, we move from station to station doing something for two minutes each - for example squat jump up to the step, crunch on the ball, curl the weight bar.

Anyone who can walk could take this class, there are easy and hard versions of each movement, and you go at your own pace for the time at each station. We cheer each other on, and feel good together.

Abby

single-leg squats to bench, step-ups while holding 2 25# dumbbells

Rowing machine sprint 600m, renegade push-ups w/25# dumbbells.


Down another pound this week.
