Disaster at gym

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

I went to the gym today and discovered a mess. I t looked like they were replacing the duct work in the ceiling.So, I went home and put in my 30 Day Shred. My granddaughter walked in on me about halfway through. She joins me in a few exercises and tells me it is so easy. Then she comments on the sweat pouring off of me by saying, "You have water drops falling off of you."

Level 2 - about 204 calories burned.

    Wow you are a determined person -- making sure that water dropped off you and some calories, too! Congrats on be on top of things. And thank you for being a good example to us-- and the little granddaughter.

    Tell her if it's "so easy," she should do the whole thing with you!
Great job on Level 2.

Gym and Insanity Infommercial

Sunday, November 25, 2012

I went to the gym yesterday morning and had the place all to myself. I turned on the television so I could have something to look at besides the wall and mirror. I do not have television at home and was amazed that with all those stations, I could not find a program that interested me.

I chose to watch the infommercial for the Insanity workouts, thinking it would inspire me while I treaded the mill (hee hee). I looked at the before and after pictures, then my reflection and decided I am still a before. I really need to get serious about my diet.

On a positive note, I am on Level 2 in the 30 Day Shred and noticed a huge improvement in my strength. My workout music choice was Podrunner Interval Freeway to 10k and I think I ran just under 6 miles. I am still trying to figure out the new treadmill and it shut off after 60 minutes, so I had to restart it and I forgot to check the mileage.

    I love those infomercials. I also love the Insanity workouts. It's funny that you mentioned diet instead of the workouts. I firmly believe that you achieve those types of bodies with proper diet. It's often been said that abs are made in the kitchen.

Turkey Trot 2012 Results

Friday, November 23, 2012

It was a last day decision, and I recruited one of my daughters and her family to run with me It was an awesome time. The little one in the stroller ran the kiddie run and really impressed the crowd.

The kiddie race was an out and back; my grandson was the youngest so when the "big kids" turned around, I turned him around too and the crowd was cheering him on. He was huffing and puffing. He ran so well; I see a future running buddy.

My son-in-law pushed the stroller and came in 28:?? (This was his first run after knee surgery), I came in at 34:19, my daughter 34:54 and granddaughter 34:55. On the way home, I heard "I can see this becoming a family tradition."

Thinking About Doing A Half in April

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

I cannot believe I am thinking about doing the Run For the Lakes Half again in 2013. I thought when I did it in April I would be satisfied checking it off my list, but no, now I am wondering if I can improve my time.
