Jan. 4th:

20 minutes Stairmaster stepmill, resistance at nine, random intervals
60 minutes back & biceps routine
40 minutes back on Stairmaster, really trudging for the last eight minutes or so & counting them down second by second

To the new people at the gym: I welcome you all, because I was once new myself. But ... do not use the seat of the lat-pull machine as a stand for your coffee and cellphone. It is not a small cocktail table. Nor is it a coat rack. Particularly if you are not using it. Otherwise this makes me keep glancing back at it, to see if it's unoccupied yet, and messes up the sequence of my workout, as I try to work around it -- and makes me anxious, because I am watching the gym's clock before work, worrying about whether I'll be able to finish my routine before I need to be home again & online. And I am a sensitive person who dreads any unpleasantness, so it's hard for me to say, "Excuse me, are you using that?" Because half the time, when I say that, no matter how politely I phrase it, it puts the listener on the defensive. So please don't use the equipment to hold your stuff. That is not what it's there for.

I hear you, saef. All the benches at my gym were occupied when I went to do chest presses. At least there were people on them, though, instead of being used as lockers.

Jan. 4: 35 min elliptical, 20 min rowing, a little ab work, 40 min dog walk

Sunday, January 6th:

15 minutes Stairmaster stepmill, resistance at nine, aerobic intervals
60 minutes shoulders, biceps & triceps routine
45 minute spin class, straight up. At least five new people in the class, really new, new not only to spin but to the gym itself. The instructor was very welcoming and mentioned running a free wellness program at the gym, which is very intriguing to me.

I'm in this thread this year...

January 1-4: no formal exercise, sick. Did some halfhearted yoga during those days trying to clear my head, but nothing real.

January 5: 10 min warm up stretching. 20 min weight circuit workout, 45 min elliptical, 10 min cooldown
January 6: 3.2 miles of treadmill intervals, mostly running with a few .25 mile high incline walks for a change of pace

Shannon!!!! WELCOME!!!!! You are one of the people whose athletic efforts I so admired when I joined this forum a few years back. And Jessica was training for a triathlon; now she's training to grow & deliver a baby. And Becky was swimming & swimming. And Meg was training people, I believe. I miss Meg.

Monday, Jan. 7th:

55 minutes elliptical, resistance at nine, random intervals, a weird number because I warmed up for 10 minutes before my training session, then went back for 45 minutes more afterward.
60 minutes circuit training class

I'm not counting the training session with its deadlifts and attempts at a clean-jerk and military press, and the few minutes on the abductor/adductor machine, because we went light with the weights and I worked on form. So very little sweat, very little heart-rate increase. Just ... learning. Watching, learning, doing, correcting.

Krampus, that is scary, and I know what you mean, from my two years of urban powerwalking & running out-of-doors in all weather before I joined a gym. Please google "Yaktrax." That was my solution. Those things are amazing. I don't run out of doors in snowy or icy weather anymore -- arthritic big-toe joints limit my high-impact efforts -- but I still wear mine just for walking places in this area in bad weather. And they are not just for the athletic, they have really helped a few of my older relatives, who had confided their fears of walking in the snow to me.
