Day 3

Well, this is day 3 out of 4 of working out and it was nice. I think I finally got a groove back. I went further on foot than cycling today, which is opposite day 2. I ran a little faster and a smidge farther each time I bumped up the treadmill for a jog, not trying to push myself too much, but just enough to work out the kinks. I have to keep in mind that saturdays, when they first open is probably the best time on a weekend, otherwise it's busy! I got there just after 7, so I was good, but it does fill up with a lot of people on a saturday morning!

I try to workout a total of an hour each time I go. Between cycling, treadmill and conditioning equipment and stretching, I fill that hour fairly easily. I think I like my new routine of starting with a cycling warm-up, treadmill for 20-30 mins. and then cool down with some stretches and conditioning while all the muscles are warm. We shall see how it evolves. I have yet to drop in on a class and I am not sure if I will any time soon, but you never know!

Well, that is day 3, now I am going to go shower and make some pancakes and maybe some sausage, but that depends on the family.

Interesting...I love to ride my bike...but it's been so rainy lately, that it's been hard. I was doing a lot of sit-ups and other the home. Amazing how addicting it can become!

I'm sorry, but I'm giggling at the thought of you with massive muscle mass. The future Aurelia Schwarzenegger. Why don't you come out here and run for governor?!?!?

Just took a look at Kat's first place jig through Jay's blog. Totally RADICAL!!! Party on. Oh, and my personal advice- don't start another blog. Just use this one.

H, did you know that Arnold's mom's name is Aurelia? LOL! Anyway, I am 'gonna pump you UP!', but I need my name to rhyme with Hans and Frans, so maybe you can help me out with that :o)

I also used to do both bike and walk/run at each workout. I think it provides a nice balanced workout. I'm so glad you jumped in and got a membership. Keep up the good work!
