5.13 - 5.15.10

May 13 - Did 55 min of racewalking along with a 80 minute boot camp workout. It was a Thursday Three Hundred - everyone was still feeling it from Tuesday night. I thought this was a "kinder, gentler 300" but Rhianna says otherwise. Also did 35 min of salsa aerobics, lol. I'm an addict now.

May 14 - Got two racewalks in, one in the morning, one in the evening. 45 min in the AM, 45 min in the PM.

May 15 - Took Boot Camp to the great outdoors. We head to the trail and were out for about 75 minutes. We did a run/walk combo and at every bench we stop and broke up into groups, switching back and forth between dips/pushups/jackknifes on the bench and squats, sumo squats and lunges. When we made it to the hill we did 3 hill repeat sprints, then headed back and did the same thing, hitting every bench with some calisthenics. It was a good workout and a gorgeous day!

Later I will probably go for a run or head to the gym. Why? Because I got an iPod Touch that I'm very psyched about working out with. I don't think I can wait until tomorrow to enjoy it. I misplaced my little MP3 player and this holds so much more music. Yippee!

A few days worth

Let's see, the last time I blogged was May 8th. That means I need to account for the 9, 10, and 11th...I'll worry about today after I get some working out in.

Friday - ran the bleachers, did a back workout. That was hell day. The day my daughter & grandbabies set out to move far, far away to Josiah's duty station in Florida. Sad, sad day. I watched the babies for a few hours, then in the evening said goodbyes. It was heartbreaking for me. I'm glad I ran the bleachers and pumped some iron.

Saturday - boot camp in the morning and it was a killer. I figured "Misery loves company" so everyone should be miserable with me, lol. We did what I call The Accumulator. Later I got a racewalk in with Rhianna.

Sunday - Mother's Day! Rhianna and I did an hour at the gym, me on the elliptical and treadmill. Later I got a racewalk in with her. I also did a salsa workout for 40 minutes - what a hoot. Yes, yes...sounds a bit like overtraining but it was "drowning my sorrows." I can't think about those sweet babies without crying and missing them so very much.

Monday - No boot camp class, so a bunch of cardio, a back/leg/ab workout then a trip to the stadium to run the bleachers and do some laps.

Tuesday - 55 min between elliptical and stationary bike. 80 min of body boot camp - a killer workout. Still on the "misery loves company" train of though, mwhahahaha!

Life has been spinning wildly...

No time to blog - again. I never missed a workout but never could find the time to write it down. Boot camp class 4X per week, lots of cardio - racewalks in the graveyard, time spent on the elliptical or stairmaster, runs around the neighborhood. I'd been slacking on my weight workouts apart from boot camp and I've been able to re-incorporate at least "back day" into my plans. I needed it! My hand was going numb at night again, but a couple of weeks of solid back work and the nerve is unpinched and I can even sleep on the right side w/o a problem.

My daughter and I started running the bleachers again. I was certain that I'd feel sore and miserable after not doing it since Nov or Dec. Instead I woke up the next day to...nothing. Did it again on Friday and...nothing. I must be working out all the right parts in my boot camp class. :)

Thursday's class was one of my Three Hundred plans. Today's was an Accumulator. Mostly bodyweight exercises and very intense. I'm very stressed out about my oldest's daughter's move (the good-byes were on Friday) so these workouts helped me relieve a bunch of stress.

Tomorrow I plan to run with Cheryl late in the afternoon.
