This has been a weird morning. First, the kiddo came to sleep with me in the middle of the night. (Bad habit, I know!) Everytime I tried to get out of bed this morning, she woke up and gave me that "Mommy!" cry and I would have to lay back down. No workout, no studying this morning! Next, I try to fix my masthead, which has not been working since I was forced to switch to the new blogger last week. It didn't work...damn new blogger. Then, I am standing at Starbucks when I feel a wave of nausea come over me. I hurried to the ladies room and I didn't get sick, but thought that was odd. It might be the new mulit-vitamin I started taking today. Who knows? I feel better now, but the stomach feels a bit off. Finally, I get to work and realize the key to my office is IN my office. I had to ask our maintenance man to let me in. All in all, these aren't terrible things, but the combination of them all on the same day make me wonder how the rest of the day will be. :-) Better, I hope.
As for my workouts, let me catch you up.
I decided to give the next level of the Si6 series a try on Tuesday night. This particular workout is 46 minutes. Oh my God! This workout is more of the same exercises as the first one...a lot more. Plus, the evil woman added an arm workout with a modern-day torture device and a grueling session of floor work. I swear after the arm workout my arms felt all rubbery. It reminded me of my gymnastics days when I had a good workout on the uneven bars (which I sucked at by the way!). I actually had to take a rest toward the end of the floor work, because my glutes and hammies were screaming for me to stop. Oh wait, that was me screaming. See, I had to stop...I didn't want to wake the kiddo. I just knew I would be sore on Wednesday, but was suprised to find that it wasn't as bad as I expected. And the knee felt just fine both during and after the workout...well, except for the creaking sounds both of my knees made every time I did a squat or a lunge. I've noticed that before. Is that normal?
Since I was planning to run, I only did the 25 minute Si6 workout. The muscles were a little achey from the previous day's workout, but not too bad. Next, I ran 3 miles at an easy pace on the treadmill. I felt a bit of protest from my right knee and left shin, but nothing bad enough to make me stop. Overall, it was a good run. Oh, and it gave me an excuse to at least watch the first half of LOST. I love that show! I'm so glad it's back on....I've missed the Thursday morning LOST meetings at work where we analyze all the hidden links between the characters and clues. Yes, dear readers, we need a life! :-)
