Summer is getting pretty serious out there.

http://media.nola.com/tpphotos/photo/2009/04/2009-crescent-city-classic-5539bff5c05782b0_large.jpg

We're maintainers moving our bodies. Because that's why we've got them. They're not just aquariums for our brains. They're for walking, running, cycling, stretching, lifting stuff and putting it down again.

And we're going to keep moving through July, no matter how high the temperatures climb outside.

Tuesday, July 1:

NROLW 3A, getting toward the end of this phase. I bench-pressed a pair of 30-lb dumbbells today, which I have never done before. But the hardest thing that I did was the series of 90-second planks. By the third and last one, my whole body is shaking slightly and my wrists are complaining.

45 minute spin class at 6 AM, after stretching and foam-rolling on the floor of the exercise studio room, empty at that early hour. Yes, I am going over to the bright side with the others who use foam rollers, which hurt, but make me feel less stiff afterward.

Wednesday, July 3rd:

60 minutes elliptical, the usual, on a morning so humid, the gym's windows were fogged up and sweating. Lots of people with the day off were getting their workout in early, taking up machines that are generally unoccupied.
60 minutes of stretching, mostly, not Pilates, since the Pilates instructor at our gym is out of town over the long weekend.

Friday, Fourth of July:

21 minutes on the StairMaster, about all I could manage in the humidity and knowing I had to hurry, get home, shower & change & meet a good friend downtown later in the morning.

Usually I'd be lifting today but I did not have time, and I feel guilty about that, but this friend is only visiting from L.A. for a couple days.

Saturday, July 5th:

60 minute spin class, with a couple pauses, as a big, strong-looking guy taking spin with his girlfriend for the first time slipped off the bike after the second song, walked to the hallway, slid down the wall, and then lay down and fainted. Instructor jumped off her bike to attend to him, two nurses from the hospital across the street from the gym who were in spin class also got p
off their bikes, and the rest of the class just looked scared while everyone pedaled diligently, even though the Bruno Mars song repeated about three times.
60 minutes Pilates class turned into 40 minutes of stretching with just some Pilates thrown in at the end, since the instructor is away for the holiday weekend.

Edited to add: The guy was okay. Hadn't eaten since 4 PM the day before and apparently blood sugar was way low, and also blood pressure.

Don't usually post here but I just did the best exercise ever. I went with my kids to a trampoline park - a whole bunch of tramps set up in a seamless grid, with more tramps set at an obtuse angle along the sides so you can rebound from the walls. We played dodge-ball and chase for 30 minutes and I was sweating like mad by the end. Can't wait to go back!

Sunday, July 6th:

NROLW3B, with my lat pulldowns now up to 105 lbs for three sets of six reps, better than before, but I can tell I'm not yet strong enough to do a pullup.

Then the HIIT cardio, on which I bonked. I'm asking too much of myself, and I'm still doing cardio on "off" days from the program, which means I don't recover as rapidly. After the first round, I was only able to run at the speeds I'm set for myself for 30 seconds and 45 seconds.

That sounds amazingly FUN Andrea! I love workouts anywhere but a gym. I'll have to Google and see if there's one around here somewhere. I don't have any kids to go with but I used to be really good at trampoline back in gym class.

Monday, July 7th:

45 minute spin class, hanging around afterward, chatting with the spin instructor, who was talking with me about a client who has a problem with binge eating. I was trying to give her some insight into the state of mind behind the behavior, since it was alien to her. She asked me if I'd ever thought of changing careers to counsel people with eating disorders. I wanted to say, "Well, I'm still working on my own ..."

Hi all,

I've been cutting food intake a bit for the past few days, and also maybe scamping more on exercise than I should.

I can't really say my exact workouts for July 1-5, but I almost certainly went to the gym in the morning July 1, 2, and 3. 4 and 5 were rest days.

July 6: I ran about 2 miles in the humidity outside and wanted to die.

July 7: 1.25 miles treadmill running, lat pulldowns, tricep cable pulldowns, DB shoulder presses, KB swings, planks. Moved a bunch of stuff after work.

July 8: 0.5 miles treadmill running, 10 min stair stepper, Smith machine squats, glute bridges with 45# plate, KB swings, KB deadlifts, planks. Moved more stuff after work.

July 9: 10 min stair stepper, DB bench presses, DB tricep extensions, DB push presses, KB swings, 5 min arc trainer, planks, Roman chair leg raises

Andrea, yes indeed, I belong to it, and I've been posting there recently, too. Indeed it's been a godsend to me, full of helpful tips and commiseration and exhilarating moments.

Oh, and my local Groupon offers include a trampoline room, which made me think of you. Looks like it's A Thing, and I didn't even realize it (not uncommon).

Thursday, July 10th:

60 minutes elliptical, sweat just pouring off me, but a welcome exorcism of extreme work-related tension. This is actually getting easier to do now that I've got a stronger posterior chain, hamstrings and leg muscles. (Tell me again why, stupidly, I never trained my legs and figured cardio had that taken care of.)

Missed Pilates tonight. Was working on a document till 8:30 PM. This was not a good day for me at work, though far worse for my direct report, who went MIA from work for three days. I had to ask HR to call her emergency contact. She's been in bed suffering horribly from an onslaught of Lyme Disease, and wasn't even up to calling in sick at work.

Finished the last workout of Stage 3 of NROLW. I destroyed the treadmill sprints today, a welcome change from this past Sunday, when I last did this workout, and I just bonked completely. This short-legged, dumpy non-runner with the arthritic big toe joints is thrilled to do a 7.0 sprint for one minute straight through.

And Andrea, my Facebook name is my real name, so I'll not share it here, but I am sure you will figure it out. Trying to remember if I've seen you posting in that group. I only remember a couple names from post to post, mostly the experts ... and C--- K---, who shares frequently and more than most.

Saturday, July 12th:

60 minute spin class, with the young substitute, who threw some Pitbull in with her sad slow thoughtful indie music. She is really trying. And she really is a good instructor, as far as being competent and strong goes -- but she's not catching on or getting any kind of following, and I am sure she feels somewhat hurt by this. She's very intense, sort of inward-looking, whereas the other instructors are more extroverted and have the warmth that I connect with excellent elementary school teachers and nurses and therapists and others in professions that require evidence of empathy. The thing is, you can be athletic, train hard, come up with great routines, but if you haven't got that piece of the puzzle ... I don't know, but I know it's a profession where people have to attract flocks to succeed.

60-minute Pilates mat class. Fuller than it ought to be on a gorgeous hot Saturday in July. And this instructor, too, has completely got "It," whatever that is, a kind of warmth, an expressive personality, a little bit of charisma. Whatever it is that the new spin instructor hasn't got, or hasn't developed yet. And yet I still like this young woman, and I hope she breaks through.

First workout of NROLW Stage 4, once again serving a sentence of weighted stepups ... and oh Lord, the 120-second plank.

Managed 15 minutes on the StairMaster afterward, and that's all she wrote. This leg-heavy workout didn't leave me with me much energy for cardio.

saef
07-14-2014, 10:28 AM
Birchie, oh dear, oh dear, no, I wrote that incorrectly. It's the 120-SECOND plank., not the 120-MINUTE plank, though honestly, it feels like that at about the 90-second mark. One holds the plank for two minutes, NOT two hours. I would pass out if I attempted the later, which sounds like a punishment meted out to sailors during the Napoleonic Wars.

Monday, July 14th:

45 minute spin class, which I was only capable of doing after stretching hip flexors and ham strings on the floor of the spin room before climbing onto the bike. It's that glute-hamstring attachment that gets me. This is from yesterday's weighted high step-ups and the weighted Bulgarian split squats and the weighted one-legged dumbbell deadlifts.

NROLW 4A workout for the second time, upping the weights but dropping the height of the step for the step-ups. I have a sore left hip flexor, or maybe it's sciatica, which made the lateral leg work feel uneven today, much harder for the sore side than the okay side.

I'm still imprisoned at the excessively well-airconditioned Ritz Carlton Hotel in Orlando, spending my days in ballrooms, which sounds romantic but means cloth-covered dividing walls, skirted tables with piles of pens in the middle and brainstorming on white boards. Also watching dynamic speakers using words like EBITDA while holding a clicker in their hands to advance enormous PowerPoint presentations overhead. This event has disrupted my ordinarily well-regulated life, leading to:

Sunday, July 20th:

An incomplete NROLw4B workout without the ab sequence or HIIT sprints, because I had to finish packing and drive to the Park-and-Fly near the airport.

Monday, July 21st:

At the really nice hotel gym, 30 minutes elliptical, resistance at nine, very tough going, and then finishing off the ab sequence left from yesterday

Tuesday, July 22nd:

After maybe four hours of sleep, an unsatisfactory NROLW 4A workout, because of competing with colleagues and guests from the adjacent Marriott for scarce weight-lifting resources. I could see my weakness from lack of sleep in the low weights I was using and also because I got ravenously hungry. I am not someone who can handle fasted workouts.

*sneaks in* I followed Krampus.... I miss the "Featherweight" chat! Seems like you all are a pretty cool community and really have your stuff together when it comes to being accountable to a routine.

Don't know if I'd call myself a maintainer yet (I'm about halfway to my gw) but I'm looking to set up sustainable behaviors I can follow that will carry me to the next phase of my weight loss targets. I've lost about 15 lbs since this time last summer and am planning the same for this time next summer. The one rule I've followed pretty consistently is "no eating after 8PM" and it's gotten me this far, but I'm pretty sure that I'll need some kind of an exercise to get me to goal.

I don't belong to a gym, but that's no excuse! Hoping I can still post in for what I can accomplish with a yoga mat, treadmill, youtube videos, and the outdoors.

45 minute spin class, not easy, but I can definitely see how all the leg work in the NROLW program has helped with jumps and squats and other moves on the bike.

At the gym, I am never able to see myself clearly. I either feel like someone embarked on a Sisyphean endeavor, who works out constantly only to gain weight because the food isn't perfectly in order, compared with the naturally slender women who stand beside me. Or else I feel like a beast, who's stronger than a lot of them because I go to the free-weight section regularly on a mission, training rather than just working out. I need to give myself permission just to be an ordinary person with average aims.

July 29 PM: Short (2 mile?) hike foraging for chanterelles. Much success.

July 30: 1.5 miles in 11:19 on treadmill. Glute bridges. Planks. Stair stepper.

Already my SL 5x5 plans are falling to sh!t because BF and I are going on a 17 mile Adirondack hike over the weekend and I get my wisdom teeth out Monday.
