I had to go to the gym yesterday, as much as I didn't feel like going. And I am glad I did. It really did help clear my mind from a stupid work issue.
30 minutes on the stair master. This may not sound like a lot, but it was about 100 flights of stairs! And my HR really got up there. Boring, yes. Burned some calories, yes. So overall, I was happy with it.
But I decided I also need to start doing some weights. I really haven't done weights - well, ever. So I started with the assisted pull up machine (which I have attempted before). It was at the end of the lunch rush, so not many people - thank heavens!! Boy, I have no upper body strength AT ALL! I mean I know I am carrying a few (okay, a lot) extra pounds, but still. Embarrassing.
It's just something I want to work on. And even thought I didn't do many, and had a lot of assistance, I totally feel it today, which is a good thing.
I couldn't get out of bed to meet Bri at the pool and tonight is our holiday party for the tri club... But I will make it tomorrow!!
