Hi Jaime, those kind of days happen to all of us. But unlike you some of us revert to the "ah well, who cares, may a well eat crap"! You, my dear, took the bull by the horns and tossed him to the curb! (How's that for mixing my metaphores )

It also sounds like you are developing a nice and healthy addiction to exercise - whoo hoo!

Congratulations Nik, I hope your marriage brings you as much happiness as mine has me.

Jamie, sounds just beautiful rowing.

Im back from an amazing trip to the Rockies, lots of hiking and dancing, and porch sitting (cant really count that one I guess).

Today was an easy run (3.25 miles in half an hour)followed by boot camp, trying to ease in.

Hi Abby,
Welcome back. The Rockies are really incredible! I hope you managed to avoid the fires and smoke

Thanks Pam, yes, we were able to avoid the fires, saw smoke in the distance once, but Colorado is a big place. They were on everybody's mind (appropriately), and there were no fireworks on 4th of July, which was fine, the next two days we got torrential downpours in the nights, which brought great rejoicing.

Today I ran 3 miles in 24 minutes, followed by amazing yoga!

Abby

Looked up a YT video this morning and did 30 minutes of Zumba. My first time and as I started I wondered how it could be a workout. Until I was done, I was sure it was a workout for real though! LOL

Thanks, everyone, for inspiration! Went to the gym today, and did strength training routine for first time in 2 months. At one point I was very consistent for 3 months, and really saw a difference - then change in routine and excuses, excuses. It is harder to climb back than to do it for the first time, but you-all are helping.

April, gotta love Zumba, it feels silly, and then, behold, you worked out!

Jamie, getting back into strength training may be harder than starting, but so worth i t!

I posted yesterday, and it vanished, oh, well, yesteday was a nice hard spin class, followed by crunch time. Sadly, the Friday spin is undersubscribed (for a lot of classes I was the only one, yesterday, it doubled to two), so they are canceling for the rest of the summer, no excuses, I can still run or ride on Fridays!

Yesterday's workout- 1:30 of strength training at the gym and then went on a 26 mile bike ride along the American River, it was an awesome day for a ride (mid 90's with a slight breeze). I also did the ride on my single speed vintage 26" BMX cruiser
Today's work out: probably gonna keep it light and do some core work, my legs and upper body are pretty whupped from yesterday' activity.

Hope everybody else is having a great weekend!

So if I had gone on a 26 mile bike ride yesterday, today's "workout" would be lying on the couch moaning The fact that you were planning to work out today made me get off my *** and go to the gym!

Looking good SW sounds like an amazing ride!
Today was a really quick run warm up followed by a Kettlebell class interesting new movements.
Stay strong!
