Friday and Saturday recap

Friday- It started off great. I got up nice and early and made it to the gym. 1 mile warm up on the recumbent bike. Hit the weights hard for a full body. I was only able to eek out 1x3 of unassisted pull ups and 1x4.5. Poop! I tried too. Oh well....I will get there. My goal is 3x5 by year's end.
I ended with 15 minutes on the step-mill and then called it a day.
My plan was to get to the 10am Spin class. I heard I missed a good one too! Dang. I was tired. My body was not tired, just my brain I think!!
So I set my sights on the 5:30 PM Happy Hour spin. Nope. Onto Zumba at 6:30 PM....NOPE!
Not sure what my problem was, but so glad Friday is over!
Saturday- Power Spin at 7:45 AM for one hour. Awesome class this morning. Sprints, climbs and endurance runs. Loved it. I will be borrowing some of these ideas for my future classes. Afterwards I did the elliptical for 20 minutes and walked on an incline for 10 minutes. The only reason I did the "extra" was because I had my babysitter until 10 AM...I have to take advantage of that!!!

I forgot to mention that after the completion of my 24 Day Challenge I dropped 6.5 lbs total. I am really happy with the results as most of the fat was on my abs. Ugh. But anyhow. It's gone now! It got my eating habits back to where they should be...I know my body responds best to a bit more protein and fat and less refined carbs!

No running today. I am still in mourning over the finality of no Boston Marathon! I am kidding ( mostly). But I can take it easy on the mileage knowing that my BIG RACE is not until May of 2010. So I can chill out until January for the most part. I am still undecided about the Turkey Trot still. There is a 5:30 AM Power Spin that I want to go to. Of course I can always do Spin at 5:30 AM and then race at 8 AM.....does not sound too smart though. I will decide soon...I think.
