    15 minute walk (short because of a fire drill)

    Tried to relax and find how I naturally walked. AGAIN, right leg felt like after a small workout, left leg didn't feel anything at all except my ankle (though it wasn't so sharp this time).

    Lol guys, I wouldn't put too much stock in the difficulty of the class. You get out what you put in. Your only supposed to go as hard as you can without gassing.

    It was my first time back in 3 months, and I didn't even make it through the whole cardio portion b4 I needed to take a breather. Although this may have more to do with a cardiovascular situation I have than how out of shape I am. Still, I was definitely sucking wind like biggie smalls in there.

    I went running today at the school gym. Unfortunately, I'm getting over a summer cold and still have some chest congestion. I only made it seven and a half minutes before my sickness and my out of shapeness conspired to end my run. Basically, I start coughing while running and couldn't stop. I was also getting overheated and a bit fatigued. Combine these things and what have you got? Disco puking in the bathroom at the school gym.

    Its cool to see everyone taking steps to pursue their personal fitness goals (whatever they may be).

    Edit: just weighed myself. 216 1/2 lbs, down one and a half from yesterday!!!

    There's some free classes they offer at the school that I might get involved in.. Also, when I start working, there's a "Nightclub Cardio" class down the road that sounds like it'd be pretty fun! So I suppose I'll be expanding my current schedule once work settles in.
    It is awesome! What I like most is the general lack of machoism and posturing in the gym. At WMA Jax its all about respect. Respect for the coaches, respect for your partner, and most importantly respect for yourself.

    The stress relief is unimaginable (second only to the horizontal tango).

    Crunches I ended up having to do them in the evening and I got caught. It's a bit undignified and I didn't even know I had any dignity.

    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Pinky I'm built the same way. I always struggle with running because I'm no good at it long distance. People THINK it's so easy, but I'm made more for short bursts of strength and energy.. So when I'm timed on a long distance, I struggle with it.
    I'm exactly the same - I'm just horrible at any sort of distance running - in P.E. when I was a kid, I was always the one gasping for breath and cramping up, finishing dead last - not quitting was my only positive there, but I was always pretty good (in the "not going to embarrass myself" way) at racquet sports, volleyball, baseball, etc. There are definitely differences between people that just can't be overcome, I think... I have a friend who, although is in good shape, is way, way too busy to exercise regularly... and he can just go out and run five miles. Once he decided to enter a marathon in Ireland - and even though he was so busy he couldn't really consistently stick to his training schedule, he flew to Ireland and ran the whole marathon without stopping to walk once (wow!). Me? I've been running twice a week for like 2.5 years and can *probably* run a mile, maybe a mile and a half, without needing to stop to walk for a bit. Which, for me, is good .

    Anyway, on my normal pace this week:

    Monday: run (with a few walk-breaks) 2.25 miles in the morning, 25-minute bowflex in the evening
    Tuesday: 30 minute (9+miles, if you believe the odometer-thingy) stationary bicycle in the morning
    Wednesday: 25 minute bowflex in the evening

    ^ Glad to hear I'm not alone on it!!

    Weight training class, demolished.
    Level 1 of my DVD, fatality.

    I feel like a beast. I think I really can take on more fitness.

    Worked up to 160kg deadlifts for 3 singles. Should be 180 in a few weeks.
    20 min cycling.
    Will do some extra work for my deadlift after work.

    Eating well today. Only had one ICEE (good for me!), and I had a Weight Watchers quesadilla for lunch. Drank water. Am making a buttload of veggies for dinner, and bought some organic frozen dinners for lunches the rest of the week. Exercised again yesterday morning, and plan to again today.
