Thursday, May 15th:

60 minutes elliptical, the usual, but went a half-mile shorter than usual -- really punishing humidity in the gym today, which makes a difference for me.

60 minutes Pilates mat class, with me feeling heavy and inflexible, and my friend on the right complaining of the stuffy, humid room. I felt it less than she did but realized when she spoke up that I was longing for airconditioning to kick in.

Not sure if I'll get to workout today or not. Dd is driving home from Arizona and she has no house key so I'll have to be home to let her in (and greet her too!)

Friday, May 16th:

NROLW 1B, with higher weights on some of the exercises and the same weight on others. Finally tried a two-way grip on my deadlifts and found this helped. I am now up to 125 lbs 3x10.
Just 15 minutes on StairMaster afterward.

Saturday, May 17th

60 minute spin class, the emphasis being on sprinting, moving fast, and the humidity heavy
60 minute Pilates mat class, oh blessed relief, in an airy studio with the door open to the beautiful day

Sunday, May 18th:

NROLW 1A, upping the weight on everything, yes, everything, and when I had a minute, trying to figure out the mechanics of the front squat with push press, which will be coming up soon in the next phase. Oh, boy, that will be fun. Not.

15 minutes StairMaster afterward, with legs tired from squatting and step ups onto an 18-inch-high plyo platform with a pair of 17.5 dumbbells. I am really paying for years of believing that cardio was enough training for my legs.

Monday, May 19th:

45 minute spin class, not fun, because my left foot still hurt from the shoes I'd worn at work, and this spin instructor, a runner, is fond of the upright jog, known as Position No. 2. But I gutted it through


Tuesday, May 20th:

NROLW 1B, again edging up the weight. Also at the end I tried dumbbell curls, because I haven't done any isolation work in many weeks now, and wondered whether these compound movements were making my biceps stronger. I managed five reps of 25-lb dumbbells so I'm slightly further along than where I was when I left off with my last routine, based on P90X, which had lots & lots of different kinds of curls. (I was doing 22.5-lb dumbbells back then for most of the types of curls.)
21 minutes StairMaster, definitely working more with my hamstrings & glutes now

Wednesday, May 21:

45 minutes elliptical, resistance at 9, most of it pedaling backward, and what a slog. I just couldn't make it to an hour. Don't know if it's humidity, physical tiredness or reduced cardio conditioning from doing less cardio. A discouraged walk home.
