Worked on my legs and shoulders at the gym last night, and I'm a bit sore today! I should probably do more strength training! One of the exercises Heather showed me last night looked so simple, but was tough for me! I got on one of the steps heading upstairs, and on the balls of my feet, tried going up on my toes, then letting my heels go below the step. The was an unexpected balancing challenge for me! I need to keep working on that. My calves were really burning by the end, too.

Getting to the gym more often

Tonight will be my second time to the gym this week. :-) I read something on the internet this week about suggestions for getting to the gym more often, and one of the tips that hit home with me was signing up for classes--aerobics, spinning, whatever you're interested in. The article also suggested planning your trips to the gym at least a week in advance, if not a month in advance, and put them on your schedule. That really hit home with me, so I'm going to do that this weekend. Good timing, with Saturday being July 1.

Last night I stayed 16 minutes on the elliptical, one mile. That's the longest stretch I've had in a little while. Was proud of myself for getting out the door after 8:30 PM to go work out. Also had to go grocery shopping, which I did after working out. Also had some cleaning to do. Gosh, getting everything in can be draining.

Saturday workout

George and I went to the gym together Saturday evening, which was nice. I did some cardio before hitting the hot tub and pool. I was a little sore yesterday, more sore than I should've been, as I didn't do THAT much cardio. I am working back up to 30 minutes at a time.

I want to work out at least threee times this week.

Wanting to work out more

Last night I had another strength training session, so I'm a little sore today! Talked with Heather about how to get to the gym more. She suggested lunch time (not really feasible) and right after work, as in having my workout clothes in the car and working out before I go home. Not there's an interesting possibility. Part of my problem lately is that I'm so wiped out after work that, once I get home, it's hard for me to get back out again, especially for a hard workout at the gym. I need to change the way I think about that. I want a body that's in better shape and in better health.

Back to the Gym

Went to the Fitness Center yesterday and did some cardio before getting into the pool and hot tub. Felt great to get back over there. Would love to get three gym visits in this week.

Small world

Last night I had dinner at Elmo's Diner with a new acquaintance named Tina. We met through Exercise Friends, and decided to meet in person to get to know each other a little better. It turns out we have similar goals, as she'd like to work up to a marathon as well. She lives here in Durham too, so we're planning to stay in touch, and maybe even walk together some. Maybe we can walk/run in some local races together too!

Weekend update

I had a good workout last night at Capital Fitness in Chapel Hill. Would've preferred exercising closer to home, but the one nearby was closed. This morning I stopped and signed up for another personal trainer session with Heather on Wednesday.
