Re: Fitness Checkin

It rained all day, so I wasn't able to go on my crazy bike ride that I had planned. However, I did take my bike out for about 20 minutes after I got done weightlifting. My gym is right on the Mississippi River, so I did a little exploring of the bike path.

Supposed to be sunny and 70 tomorrow, so I will definitely be going back.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Went for about an hour bike ride this afternoon. It didn't tire me out as much as I figured it would, but I must say, biking against the wind is annoying.

Otherwise, it was a gorgeous day, and I definitely enjoyed myself.

Congrats! I wish I enjoyed biking, but for some reason I find it really uncomfortable and annoying. I'd rather jog.

Had a good weight workout at the gym yesterday. I'm almost back up to my body weight in the squat. Yay. I feel very powerful when I put those big 35 lb. wheels on the bar.

I'm taking too big of side steps. I'm making the outside of my thighs sore.

I used to dislike bike riding, too, but I actually went to a bike shop and bought a bike that was the right size and shape. I'm surprised at how much more comfortable it is.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I did some weight lifting last night and have been riding my stationary bicycle a couple of times a week. I'm getting back into the groove.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Went for an hour long run today. Ran almost the entire way, which is only the first or second time I've been able to do that since starting back up. My right hip and foot and left knee were killing me though.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Not too much new here, I'm doing a similar routine for awhile longer. I'm down to 244 from a weight of roughly 265 a few months ago. I haven't really hit my leaning down routine yet though. Most of my strength is intact.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I have been shoveling food and protein shakes in my mouth like they're going out of style. I have lost 30 pounds since this time last year, and I need to get it back!

Re: Fitness Checkin

Got back from my first muddy run of the year. Pretty good hour long jaunt, though my foot was killing me. Should probably take the next day or two off.

Well, most of the weight I lost was muscle mass.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Well, I tested out of Salsa 1 and Argentine Tango 1. Did it a week before I expected to. I can finish out this month in the level 1 classes and take it easy.

June 1st I start level 2 for both dances.

Go me!

Wow. I'm not sure I have 30 pounds of muscle mass on my whole body! Good luck with getting it back.

I hate that... especially when it just doesn't 'feel' like you staring back at you in the mirror. I don't know about you, but it really depresses the crap out of me.

I've still not adjusted to the idea of me being a cruiserweight.

Speaking of which... I skipped my army training session this morning as I was working through the night. I just realised my pre-selection day is on Thursday and I feel like crap... though two miles in twelve and a half minutes.. which was raised from eleven as I'm old () should still be doable as long as I take a lot of meds.
