fight gone bad

At the gym I go to, studio 831, we have the wall of shame/fame what ever you want to call it. ¬†On this wall you have records ¬†of your times compared to others. My trainer has decided to put my times on the wall, and for me personally, I have high expectations, so today was…

cardio-conditioning can be hard.

Crosstraining today? man-eaters suck.

My workout today was your standard workout but I don’t feel like¬† it was really that hard.¬† My trainer was complaining to me that I bitch about my shoulders, elbow, etc.. I asked her not to worry about that because that pain that I go through helps me regain and maintain flexibility.¬† I really shouldn’t…

Puking with the prowler

Man… what a day. ¬†Yesterday I felt kind of tired so I went to sleep early, perhaps too early… ¬†I woke up around 3, 4, and finally at 5:30. ¬†Not beat, but not completely awake either. ¬†Either way I was excited to work out and try my new toy. At my local Fry’s electronics store¬†I…

I was looking forward to the workouts despite the sore legs. This past Saturday I ran the stairs at sea cliff beach. The…

A new workout

My workout beat me up today. ¬†I have doubts that I can even remember what I did or what the names of the new exercise is. ¬†I was truly whipped by the end of this workout. The warmup was fairly typical for these new routines. ¬†I do a 500 meter row, and then practice my…

Thursdays workout.

lots of new stuff last Thursday. ¬†It was refreshing. I thought the warmup was going to be the normal routine. ¬†I walk about 5 minutes on the tread mill, then row 500 meters. Not that day. The¬†new warmup kicked my ass. ¬†I did the normal 500 meter row, but then instead of stretching we jumped…

Learned some new exercises today.

today I had a lot of new exercises in the routine along with a later than normal time. ¬†Normally I workout in the mornings, but today I had ¬†workout at noon which is a nice change of pace. This was the first workout since last week. ¬†I have been down with a cold and didn’t…
