Enchanted Evening

March 6, 2011

So funny how we assume things.  My sister went out on out-of-town weekend for what I assumed was a wine-tasting weekend.  Instead she was at Enchanted Rock hiking up jagged granite and climbing rocks.  She is a rock climber.  She is amazing!  We talked this
evening, and it was just wonderful to be inspired and encouraged by the same person. 
Climbing rocks - Wow!!  Maybe after the Warrior Dash, this is what I can aspire to.  We shall see.  In the meantime, I will be honored to cheer on my sister as she rocks the rocks!

While I did not climb rocks, I did jump on the treadmill for 10 minutes.  This time I ran 9 minutes at 4.0 mph and the last minute at 4.5!  I think on a non-circuit day, I may try to do 20 minutes at this pace and see how it goes.

I ran through my circuit program. Once again, I proved to be a member of the sweat club.  I added some ab machines to the end of the exercises just for good measure.  Before the cooldown and stretching, I went for more cardio.  I got on one of those bikes where you sit back in a chair and peddle assuming that this was going to be an easy cardio gig, a cooldown in itself compare to the treadmill.  Well, whatever!  I didn't like that, and I didn't really feel like it did much for me.  Maybe I didn't do it right, but I didn't feel anything until I pushed up the resistance to 10, and then the machine pooped out on me.  I guess the machine didn't like me either. >={~   Maybe I'll try one of the non-chair back bikes later this week.
