Wednesday- Birthday= No Gym!
Thursday-
915am- 20 minutes on precor back was hurting a bit, but it was better when I finished
10am- bagel w/ small amount of vegan cream cheese, coffee
11am- run- got lost and turned around running around a lake, but went further than i originally thought i would so that was good
2- burritos
Later today- training with Robert at a gym that i've never set foot in, adventure time!
Trained with Robert at gym! It was fun, did tons of rows, shoulder presses, lateral raises, some deadlifts, etc. I was a bit worried about my back because it was still hurting a tiny bit. But I started very very very light, and worked my way up. Back felt fine, got up to 60 pounds on lat pulldown, could have done more but didn't want to push it. 50 pounds on seated cable rows. Fun times!!!!!!!

Haven't done anything today! I'm exhausted so maybe it's a good thing I'm taking it easy. Boy keeping up with Robert is tough!!!! Always doing something.

Was on my feet all day at Veg Fest! So my feet were aching by 6pm, so what does Robert decide to train, legs! Well I was not sure I would be ablet to compete with him on the leg press but I think I held my own! These are an estimated guess at the reps.
warmed up with stationary lunges, alternate lunges, lunging backwards
set 1- 90 lbs 20 reps
2- 180 lbs 15 reps
3- 270 8 reps
4-360 6 reps
5- 450 lbs 1 1/2 reps
took a break while RC continued on up to 630 lbs or so for quite a few more sets,then I joined him again at- did some lunges, squat
450 lbs for 3 reps
360 lbs 6 reps
270- 8 reps
180 12
90 15 reps
then I did more lunges, squats, leg extension, prone leg curls, etc.
I won't be able to walk tomorrow!
then

Obviously we were a bit hungry after the leg workout so we stopped at Garden cafe, and asian vegetarian/ vegan restaurant.
Robert ordered a ton of food as he should! I got won ton soup, and sweet and sour chicken w/ brown rice, all vegan of course.
I brought half of it home!

Tuesday 10/26 Step, and Body Pump- special guest Robert Cheeke!
Step is not Roberts forte!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Body Pump proved harder than thought for one vegan bodybuilder, lol
I thought the class was easy, but I've taken it a lot and wasn't trying to lift too much weight!

Wednesday- 10/27- Grey Hound travel= not fun! walked to hotel carrying my heavy carryon about a mile I think felt like 5. Walked to bus stops to get to St. Ppete Times Forum which ironically is not in St. Pete its in Tampa!

Thursday- all dressed up for orchestra, but had to walk to theater because trolley sytem didn't run that early. Walking in heels for any distance wreaks havoc on my feet.
After concert got trolley to hotel- then changed shoes, and with new blisters and hurting feet walked some more with my mom to explore the area. FYI St. Pete is not very clean, and stinks!!!!!!

Friday-More walking at beach, then a bit in Downtown St. Pete before going to Grey Hound

Saturday- I don't think I did anything today!

Sunday Step and Body Pump felt great until I was doing a move in Step that hurt my back, the right side lower down this time near lats. last time it was on left side more in the rhomboid area. Got through Body Pump, but was definitely feeling it in the back by the end.

Monday- Went to Universal- lots of walking which I thought might stretch out my back. Big mistake going to universal today- see other blog.

Tuesday- Step class only due to my sore back. About halfway through class thought my back was a lot better, and today it isn't dore so I guess i worked it out in Step.

Wednesday- very short run because of stomach cramps- I really didn't feel like running, but it felt great once I hit the pavement.

I have been super busy! But i am still getting in quite a few good workouts every week. So I am not slacking.
This week I have done 2 Step classes, and 2 Body Pump classes, and run once. I also walk every day!
Last week I pretty much did the same except also took a Zumba class, but I don't remember running at all.

I was all set to do an extra class today, because I won't be able to get to the gym over the weekend. I am hoping to check out the gyms on the college campus when I'm there. At least the athletic department seems pretty good. There are a lot of weight rooms, pools, basketball court, soccer baseball, and other fields, a rock climbing wall, etc. Oh and there are also quite a few running trails. Should be an absolutely beautiful place to run along the bluffs of the Mississippi river. The only thing missing is an ice hockey rink! Maybe I will get a run in this weekend.

Not a lot of work out this week, well actually none. Have done a lot of walking when I was visiting the college campus on the bluffs of the Mississippi river in Illinois. Other than that, just walking at airports.

Sunday was a great day for workouts as is every day! As usual I took my Step, and Body Pump classes. Step was quite interesting because of the instructor forgetting half the workout at the end. I think the left side was the lead for three times to the right only being the lead for one. Oh well as long as you're moving it doesn't matter if you feel one side was left out ha ha.

Body Pump must be getting easier, at least parts of it. The squat track was tough, but I managed to get deeper than I usually do, and not fall over in the process. And lifting it over my head at the end of the five minute track was better because I didn't bump my head as much as usual.
The chest track beat me though! Triceps were pretty brutal too. Biceps I actually felt were easier so maybe I am finally after years of trying, getting stronger guns. My glutes will never be tha same after the lunge track, it was all the bottom halves that we did. For those that have no idea what a bottom half is, its where at the bottom of your movement you only go half way up multiple times. At one time we thought there were 16 bottom halves, but luckily it was only 8. Anyway then we finished out with shoulders, abs, and stretching.
Shoulders were hard but I like the recent track because there aren't too many barbell shoulder presses, this is just a move that I am not good at. There were tons of lateral raises, and mac raises which is one arm in a front raise, and one arm in a lateral raise at the same time. Abs weren't too bad, but the end movement where you are in a plank position and then you walk you feet out and back, and then your arms is not a favorite, then I stretched.

Monday- Ran about 3.5 miles. It was a good run although I walked for bits of it.
Tuesday- walk to YMCA 3/4 mile, Step @ 5:30pm/ Body Pump @ 6:30pm
That was one heck of a workout! I must have been working extra hard in Body Pump because I was sweating like crazy. I even went 5 pounds lighter for squats because my legs were beat from Step. Anyway had an amazing exercise night, and felt good after it was over.
Wednesday: Rest day- got lots to do today and tomorrow so today no gym

I feel so out of shape! I just got back from visiting relatives up North and I froze. So I did not go out and run as I had planned, neither did I walk to the gym. I could barely manage to stay on my vegan diet, but prevailed somehow. All I can say is that not going to the gym for over a week is torture! I can't wait for tomorrow, and will make sure I have a kick butt workout!
