I did spend 30 minutes on the treadmill at the hotel while we were away. And it was about 100 degrees in the fitness center. Maybe that counts for extra time?? I was dripping as I walked back to my room which was luckily not too far away and I didn't run into anyone. Not that it would have mattered, the hotel was full of gaming convention attendees and airline employees. There's only one airline employee that I ever try to impress and he was sitting in a hangar somewhere proving he knows how to operate the windows in the cockpit so I knew I would be cleaned up before I saw him again. Anyways...
|Why, oh why do they put mirrored walls in hotel fitness centers? I do not need to stare at myself while I sweat buckets. Also unnecessary? The windows behind me that faced the lobby. I do not need all the hotel guests looking at my sweaty back!|
On Saturday, I got my butt kicked by Jillian Michaels. I attempted one of her hour long workouts again. The first attempt I only made it 45 minutes before I waved the white flag. This time I stuck it out the entire hour. There was only one move that I could not do at all. As in, my brain couldn't even figure out how to attempt it. And then I did have to use her modifications quite a bit. But I survived an hour. I was dripping though! And then when I tried to walk down the stairs afterwards, my quads were shaking. Fun times.
Not so fun? Doing that Jillian Michaels workout at 8:00 pm and then making plans for a 4 miler at 9:00 am the next morning. The plan was to do a pretty solid run/walk but after I woke up and realized every fiber of my being ached, I knew I would have to just get through the miles. Katy met me at my house, I strapped Megatron into his stroller and we were off....very slowly. We only did two run breaks and walked the rest. But it was over an hour of exercise and even though I was sore, I still got it done. Plus, I got to have adult conversation which is hard to come by when I'm home alone with Megatron.
