How does one do this…..

October 26, 2010

My elbow has been hurting all day.  Finally, I went into the bathroom to check it out and this is what I saw…..

How it was done: I burned myself with my curling iron on Saturday.  My subconscious blocked the event from my memory in hopes to prove that I really am not that clumsy.  Who burns their elbow with a curling iron? Sad but true.

I made it to the gym by 5:30 a.m. woot woot.  I was thrilled to wake up feeling so good and ready to climb some serious stairs.  I got to the gym and glanced over at the stair climber and to my suprise someone was on it at 5:30 in the morning.

At first I was mad at the girl.  How dare she exercise the same way that I wanted to.

Then, I thought logically about the situation.

Seriously Gold’s. Seriously.

1 stairclimber and 27 elliptical.  Yes, I counted them because I was so upset. Where does all that money go?

Workout:

20 minutes elliptical.

45 minute spin-class.

25 minutes stair-climber. It was finally available after spin. P.S. when you use the stairclimber don’t lay on the handlebars. Try not to use them or just barely clasp the bars.  If you fall its not that far so don’t get scared.

Food:

Breakfast: The usual yogurt creation.  I may have put a little bit of apple crisp in it before I left and it may have been the best decision I have made this far.

Snack: Lunch is at eleven on Tuesday and Thursday. No time for a snack.

Lunch: Spinach salad and leftover homemade soup.

Afternoon snack: Popcorn, apple and laughing cow.

Billy is being responsible and finishing his homework tonight in the lab.  What to do? What to do? Probably watch Spirit of the Marathon again and bake.  If I can’t run I might as well watch other people do it and eat the calories that they are burning.

I have been wanting to try the stair maching but am a little intimidated by it…Fortunately my gym has plenty. Have you done Boston before??

You should try it. It really is so hard, I swear my heart rate is anaerobic the entire time. I haven't done boston before…my first marathon was this last April. Have you done it?

I love "Spirit of the Marathon," I get so pumped up watching it! Ben kinda laughs and thinks I am ridiculous… :)

Spirit of the Marthon is great! I've met Deena, Jerry, Ryan, and one of the producers at Chicago Marathon Expo 2009. I was all nerdy on them because I've watched it about 100 times. :)
