I got to the Y at about 9:15 am, and then set up for class, today was Cardio Strength. We used stability balls, medium 8lbs, and heavy 10lb weights. The warmup was stretching and running several times around the perimiter of the room. Shoulders were first, started with heavy weights, 2 different kinds of lateral raises, and shoulder press, then onto heavy weights I think. Then more running around the room, and I think chest, biceps were next, did squats too, and there were several more cardio intervals. I must be getting more fit, because I'm startong to pass people when we run, and do walking lunges, etc. The only thing I was disappointed in were my overhead shoulder presses, and overhead tricep extentions. For the most part I had excellent form, and felt good about the weights I used. I could have easily used 12 pound weights for biceps though! We also did pushups using the stability ball, I almost fell off, lol. After the class I ran for 3 miles, took about 35 minutes I think. I get very red in the face when I run, and I think one of the trainers was concerned when she saw me at the water fountain, but I told her I had done a class, and just finished running. I wonder if the redness of my face will ever diminish when I'm running. I don't want anyone to think I'm going to pass out. After I was done at the gym I got picked up to go watch my niece get her first haircut. She watched her Daddy get his done first, but when it was her turn she didn't want to sit down. Thankfully she ended up sitting on my Moms lap, and was very good about the lady coming at her face with sharp scissors lol. My niece is very happy to not have her hair in her face now. We celebrated by taking them to a doughnut place, and I am so glad I am a vegan, and couldn't get anything!
The devotion of thought to an honest achievement makes the achievement possible.
