It was push myself day at the gym. What was the highest doable pace for a lumbering elephant? :) What would an additional 15 lbs do to my arms? (can we say jello) What is the fastest pace that you can get the routine to?

I have to admit it was not as much about pushing myself as to not get complacent in the day to day actions. 4.0 mph on the treadmill was too much but 3.6 was doable. Can't increase the wieght much on the hand wieghts but kicking it up on the lat pulls and other upper body machines was a step in the right direction. Yes I could only do 30 reps instead of the 45 (3 sets 15) but it was good.

Until I tried to pick up the gym bag. Hmm how to get home with jello arms. Give it a few that is how. Don't multitask ... just drive.

How was your day? Mine was long but good.

See ya!

  1. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and then went to Aqua class - total points earned 15. Crap - I forgot to eat them though - oh well! (Judy would not be happy with me)...
