Good afternoon

Wow it has been a busy day!  I actually didn’t even get to the gym today until after 1:30pm, so this wasn’t exactly a “morning workout”.  I had something going on in the morning and when I got home from it I really didn’t feel like leaving again to go workout.  I am a morning person and have a hard time motivating myself to workout any later than 10am.  But I knew I would regret it if I didn’t get my workout in, so back out the door I went.

Coming in the afternoon wasn’t all that bad. The gym was pretty dead; too late for the lunch rush and too early for the after work workouts.  It was a little weird though because there was like a “bubble” in the main workout area.  Every time I moved around to another machine or area, the same, small group of people, did too.  I actually had to mix up the order of my workout a little because someone else had beat me to the machine I needed and that usually never happens.  Either way I got everything done and felt great afterwards!

I am a little behind on my posts from last week.  I did have my RMA test done and plan on sharing those results within the next day or two.  As well as the workout from that day and my yoga practice from the weekend!  And tomorrow is my first run in almost 2 months.  It is Try It Tuesday and the Running Club is hosting the group workout with a morning 5k.  I asked my trainer if he thought it would be ok to run it and he said yes and is looking forward to my help with the “newbies” in the group.  I am curious to see how I do.  Serious strength training/conditioning and cardio don’t usually go hand in hand (its harder to be light and fast, when you are getting “bulkier” and heavy) but maybe I will surprise myself!
