Tuesday, October 1st:

30 minutes Stairmaster, the usual
Then a quick jog home, past commuters trudging to the train station, because I forgot the little piece of paper with my workout routine
60 minutes shoulders, chest and triceps routine

Thanks for starting this, saef.

I'm still battling a virus so my exercise is minimal. I'm trying to keep warm and rested so it doesn't develop into anything much. My glands are up in my neck so I'm assuming antibody production is in full swing. I have a horrible cough.

(Had a quick look for :horriblecough: smiley but there isn't one.)

Love the name and the photo Saef. Thanks for starting the thread again.

October 1:
95 minutes Bikram Yoga. This is usually the day I do body pump but I'm still holding off as I don't think tons of squats would be good for my knee.

October 2:
I was *this* close to not exercising. I got ready to go to yoga and suddenly had diarrhea (sorry if tmi). I've been "backed up" and I had a latte (don't usually have milk) and beans with lunch. So.... I wasn't sure if I was sick or just things finally started moving. I hate that decision-- are you sick or not? Do you go exercise or not? Once you are in the bikram room (90 plus minutes) you are not supposed to leave unless it is a true emergency. So, I decided to drive to yoga knowing I had 30 minutes before class started and I could leave before it began if need be. I went, my stomach was fine (though it feels weird today), and my favorite teacher was there (she is a visiting teacher so I never know when she'll be there). I'm so glad I didn't stay home. Positive, strong class. I won't likely exercise Friday as we are planning to look at cars after work and the weekend is an unknown with us going to Napa so I really didn't want to miss another day.

You're welcome, Michele. Glad you did not miss out on a good instructor. I agree, I keep trying to "listen to my body," because that is what everyone tells me to do, but sometimes my body says contradictory things and also it's unclear where the body and mind shade together, which is what leaves me in conflict with myself sometimes.

Wednesday, Oct. 2nd:

60 minute on the elliptical, alternating backward & forward, resistance at nine, keeping going even after a water bug ran across the gym floor and hid under one of the treadmills in front of me.

Thursday, Oct. 3rd:

Ran 4.27 miles, some of it with a badly running nose, but thinking I'm slowly getting better at this, even if I definitely tire in the last mile

Missed Pilates class because of my mother visiting, who unhelpfully told me later, "You should've gone to the gym," so it felt like it was pointless.

Friday, Oct. 4th:

30 minutes StairMaster, resistance at nine, random intervals, in other words, the usual
60 minutes back & biceps routine

Wondering, while trudging through the dark at 5:45 AM to make it to the gym before work, is this all worth it?

October 3: 95 minutes lukewarm and dry bikram yoga-- not sure why but this particular instructor hasn't gotten the room hot the past few classes I've taken with her. It is not the same without sweat! We were all complaining after class. Unfortunately whenever I have a class like this, my weight is UP the next day-- I think I still drink a lot of water but I don't sweat it out. Hopefully I can flush it out today.

I believe the virus is leaving my body and has almost gone. Back to proper rocking October body work tomorrow.

Movement-based flexibility without weights to check how I was feeling. Some one-legged toe touches.
6.9k steps, 2.7 miles

A good day and I think I can start to build up again this week.

October 4: nothing-- went to the car dealer after work

October 5: 48 minute spin class before leaving for Napa.

October 6: after returning from Napa-- 100 minute Bikram yoga class. The teacher that can't regulate the heat was there but a student talked to her and somehow it was great. I think the student pointed out a note from the owner of the studio that the instructor hadn't seen. Either way, I was happy to sweat some of my Napa trip out. Unfortunately, we will probably be going after work to get my new car which will knock me out of another workout.
