Glad to see you got out Jaime. Does that odd-man-out thing happen often?

Kinda dogged it during CrossFit workout this morning because I was in a hurry. Went light on the deadlifts and did singles rather than double-unders for the jump rope. But I did work hard on the back squats. I tried knee sleeves for the first time - wow, they really made a difference in how stable my knees, and really my whole legs felt. Gonna get me some soon!

Been knocking it out the past few days, ran 12 miles on Sunday. I spent an hour working on my legs for Monday's gym workout and went in @ 5:30 am this morning to work on my upper half and did 30 min on the elliptical. Woohoo- feels awesome! And tomorrow I'm planning on a 10 miler after work

Awesome SW!

I had a full week of Xfit, runs, and yoga, so I took Monday off. I have a race on Sunday - 10K, so I'm going easy this week. Didn't do the workout this morning, but I did work on front squats and then a bunch of mobility (foam roller).

Good luck! I'm sure you'll do great!

Did my weight routine this morning, followed by sprints, and finished with another HIIT routine.

Meh, I wussed out on the planned 10miler -had some stomach troubles and didn't want to risk it.
So, I went to the gym instead and ran on the tredmill for 45min and then did some leg work. Squats, deadlifts, leg presses & raises and some weighted incline lumbar raises.

Wussed out too. The workout of the day was a killer, there was no way I was going to do it 3 days before a race. Even though I could have gone and just done something else, I decided to use the time to get a little work done. I did do some mobility stuff though

Ok, I'm back logging! I've been volunteering on election stuff, and not watching what I ate. So, of course, didn't want to record it But time to refocus.
We have a new rowing coach as we go into winter conditioning. He has added yoga to our warm-up/indoor work-out routine. It doesn't seem hard, but my stomach muscles were sore for three days after Monday! We got out on the water this morning too - a fairly easy row in a four-person sculling boat. It is gratifying to reflect that 3 months ago I would have thought it was a really tough row!

Back online again. Been really busy with both work and personal stuff. Thought I would post my intention to hit the gym tonight so it would be one more place to stay accountable. Haven't been to the gym for 2 weeks but tonight I turn that back around. Glad to see some of you have been hanging in there!

Hi all,
Glad you're back out on the water Jaime, and Ron's back in the gym. Dude! 2 weeks off, any longer and you would have had to start all over again .

I got a fairly good workout this morning. Since I raced on Sunday I cut myself some slack and lightened up the weights. After I got home I was kind of kicking myself for putting in 90%, but there is always tomorrow.
