Thanks Rob for the great words of encouragement. :)

I wanted to get out and run today but the temperature was 112 - I think the heat index adds about ten degrees to the actual temperature. So no outside running for me. I did skate fast (well fast for me my daughter and little figure skating friends were like 'we can skate faster than you' well duh!).

:p - not a tongue sticking out but more of a tongue hanging out.

I did about 40 minutes of Spin class - I can't get to the rink until about 15 minutes after the monday class starts and then I have to change clothes. The last ten minutes of class we did some weights and ab exercises. I did a bunch of shoulder presses, lat raises, front raises with light (6#) weights. And did all that before my Torso Pull workout.

I did my 20 pushups..:)
I was exhausted from Spin - wanted to just go home but I figured I'd do my regular Monday workout and take it easy with weight/reps

oohh.. I bet I hurt tomorrow. Okay so this weekend I read one of Mike Mahler's articles about gaining leg size.. can't remember the name of it. Decided I'd like to try to do his zone stuff. Didn't to the timed zone stuff tonight - may do that soon but incorporated some of the exercises in tonights workout. Then after I left the gym I went by the track and ran 2 miles slow - then walked 400m to cool down. Want to work up to doing 2.5 miles worth of sprints at the track to train for Pump'N'Run competition next month..

BB Squat 3 x 10 x 145#
DB Squat 3 x 10 x 30#
Dumbbell Swings 3 x 25/16/24 x 15# (did the stop when I got tired on each set with this exercise - made me want me a kettleball though :wink: )

Upright Row 2 x 10 x 20#

I lost 2 more pounds when I weighed today. Since I stopped trying to diet.

I had a weak ass workout today. I had a real long day. The program my daughter is supposed to be enrolled in this fall (starting in about 2 weeks) has just been canceled for the semester. So it'll be next semester before she gets to start it. So there is really nothing available for her to do besides group class (she's been taking 2 levels together) so she's not really at a place to start a new 'group' class. She'd either be below the other kids and not able to keep up or ahead of the other kids and bored out her mind and not learn anything. We had the latter problem before. And her other option is she could take stroking as a semi-private lesson rather than a group class. A new thing they are starting so that stroking class doesn't get the whole ice. And that may or may not be offered at a convient time.

ah today's workout
Lying Hamstring curls 3 x 10 x 60#
DB SA Bicep Curls 3 x 8/10/6 x 30/25/30# (I was really struggling with the 30s today they felt so heavy - I may add a 4th workout to just come in and hit all over so that I don't go a full week without hitting the muscles. Got to figure something out with that.
Standing Leg Curls 3 x 10 x 60/65/70#
Cable Bicep Curls 3 x 8 x 75#
Decline Situps 3 x 15
Cable Reverse Curls 3 x 10 x 65#
DB Wrist Curls 3 x 10 x 20#
DB Reverse Wrist curls 3 x 10 x 12#
DB Side Bends 3 x 10 x 30#
