Thanks Abby! This Sat's race is a fast & flat and hope to put up some good numbers.
I was able to do some deadlifts & squats this morning in addition to some dumb bell work on my shoulders.

...been having sleeping problems too, so I really needed the rest. By the time I rolled out of bed it was too late to get started on the run I had planned. We're in for a week of 100 degree temps. The mornings usually stay nice until about 8, so when I get my butt out the door by 6 or 6:30 I can get a nice run in before the blazes hit.
I did, however, rationalize the non-run as I will have a nice yoga class this evening, so it isn't like I'm not doing anything today .
Go luck on your race SW
Great tenacity Amy - sometimes all it takes is a couple of grin and bear it days to get back in the habit - I hope that happens for you.
Abby, you are quite the exercise queen these days! You are beginning to sound like a serious addict
You guys are awesome, the fact you will read my post, and say something encouraging makes me really want to have something good to post.
I took a while off, between a cold and some oral surgery, it was really no muscle work and minimum cardio work for almost two weeks. Today I was back on the weights, after a not too strenuous warm up on an elliptical I did lunges and squats and presses and rows and flies, and crunches and pushups (off a ball) - I have lunge legs and fly shoulders, and will be achy and happy tomorrow - which should be a good day for a nice outdoor run before Irene comes to call....
It's a great workout if you do a little more than you think you can...
I got up on time this morning and put in my 70 min on the elliptical, actually I put in 71. I know that I need to mix it up, but the silly thing is just so mindless, and that's what my poor brain needs first thing in the morning. Plus it also burns a huge pile of calories, and unfortunately that's also what I need.
Last night's yoga was nice and mello, but my abs are still sore from last week's workout . A couple of poses that are usually pretty easy for me were kinda challenging 'cuz I had not strength in my tummy.
