After a night off from exercising, I felt refreshed and ready to go.  Unfortunately, the jazz class was shortened by 15 minutes, which only gave me 45 minutes to run through my circuit training.

I gave her a kiss and headed to the weight room.  I had warmed up at home since I knew I would be short on time, so I got right on the treadmill.  I warmed up with a 7 minute jog, this time the whole 7 minutes was at 4 mph!  Definitely tougher, but not unbearable.  I was concentrating on increasing my stride as well.  I have a pretty small stride, so I'm trying to be aware of that.  Afterwards, I got right to work on the circuit training and ran through the exercises quickly with virtually no break in between.  I was disgusting and sweaty in no time at all!  I made it through the whole thing twice in 30 minutes!  Since I had a few more minutes to spare, I went back to the medieval machine to do some pull ups.  This time, I didn't quite max the counterweight out.  I reduced it by 20 lbs and did 10 reps.  The last two I had to fight for.

I like to cool down to Pink's Glitter in the Air.  It's such a pretty song, and it's perfect for stretching.  I think I need to download Scandal's The Warrior  or maybe Xena has a good theme song.  I never watched it, so I don't know.  I'll have to look into that. 

Although Xena is a warrior princess, and I am now WP, I have to say I will not dress like her during the Warrior Dash.  Why, you ask?  See below:

Just not sure if I can pull it off.  At least not while jumping in the mud!
