Tuesday~ It was a little
weird different getting ready for work without having to get the kids ready too. I think I missed them! I know I did. Those crazy kids really grow on ya! 😉
Spin today. It was race day! Woohoo! I planned a time trial of sorts today. After the 7 minute warm up we did a 7 minute time trial 4 times total. Every – time the class was to work a little bit harder than the last. I think it was fun! I have never done this before so it was kind of fun to coach this type of class. We only climbed for about 3 minute of each 7 minute loop. They were stong and powerful climbs though. I was told ot try to keep my HR in my Zone 4 for 10 consecutive minutes 1-2 times a week. I did it today! My average HR was 158 and my goal was to keep itbetween 157-160. Whew……. According to the bike computer we raced 14.25 miles. This is significant because my non – race day spins usually average out to be 13 miles. So we were cooking today! After Spin ( since I had no kids to rush home and make lunch for…. ) I went on the elliptical for a very easy 35 minutes. It was basically “catch up” time with my gym friends! It was nice. It was nice not to have to go home yet. I think I did not want to go home to an empty house! 😦 They will be back tomorrow though, so I better enjoy it while it lasts! After the elliptical I tried to talk myself out of lifting weights, but after a half hour of that ( more catch up time with gym friends) I changed into dry clothes and did a quick circuit.
I changed things up a bit finally. 4 sets of 8 reps:
lat pull down
up right rows
I should have fit push ups in there somewhere, but I did not think about it until it was too late. I will incorporate chest on Friday when I lift. I actually lifted heavier than I have in a while so I should feel that in the morning. ( Yay!)
After the gym ( I was there for a total of 3.5 hours– lots of talking today!) I ran some errands and then went to he movies with Matt ( no kids!- do keep saying this???) We saw The Fighter with Mark Whalberg and Christian Bale. It was really good!! 2 thumbs up ( and a circle).
On tap for tomorrow: Run in the AM, teach spin at noon. 🙂
Have you seen any good movies at the theatre lately?
How do you spend your “me time?”
