Sept. 28: 15:07 minutes rowing on the Concept II, 39 s/m, 2:24 for 500m, 3065 meters, 2:27 average, projected 6180, for a measly 169 calories
60 minutes weights
45 minute spin class

Weirdly warm & humid weather, the kind that ends up exploding dramatically if cool air comes in. I know by my almost theatrical sweating in the gym. Sweat droplets on the floor around me. Sweat shaken from my hair in spin class. Somewhat sexy sweat on my neck & chest like on the models' torsos in one of the posters on the windows of the gym -- but not those rock-hard abs underneath. Also the posters have no odor, just being pictures.

Sept. 29: 30 minutes Abs Express class
45 minute spin class

This weird weather is supposed to end with a day-long downpour tomorrow. In the meantime, I'm still sweating theatrically. In class today, we did a variation on the teaser, when you balance on your butt-bones and hold onto your legs, and my hands wouldn't have gripped my sweaty legs very well if I hadn't been wearing fingerless gloves. (For the spin class afterward, but I thought they'd come in handy in class.) I kept up better with the class than last week, when it was unintelligible chaos. Still, I'm thinking it goes too fast. I don't like all the hands-cupped-behind-the-neck moves being done at such a hectic pace. That's just begging for me to pull on my neck in my haste. I will work out some private modification, if I keep taking the class.

I should mention the teacher's leopard-print sports bra looked absolutely fantastic on her. I live in a sheltered preppie jock world: I didn't even know you could purchase animal print athletic clothing.

Sept 28
5 mile treadmill run
55? minutes
started slow finished fast
need to stay slow -- but I get so bored on the treadmill

Sept 29
30DS level 1
Haven't done 30DS in months. Cardio part is easy for me, but the arm work kills me. Just the shoulder lifts. It's all low-weight, high-reps, though, so I'm not going to worry about it because...

NRLW just came in the mail! Yahoo. Will try to read it this weekend and start some real lifting next week! Looking forward to looking like a goddess as promised.

And I'm going to hunt down one of those leopard print sport bras. That's right up my alley. But I'll probably never wear it without a shirt over it.

Just for you, AmytheSame:

Everyone should have one.

Jessica, in honor of what you just lifted, you most definitely need one. Congratulations.

Jessica! Brilliant.

(You could get the tie-dyed giraffe sports bra but I don't think the raw energy is quite the same as the cheetah / leopard one. Um, they are separate species actually but perhaps not in the sports fashion world. This bra may allow you (a) to sprint as fast as a sports car and (b) lug a carcass as big as yourself up a fig tree. How can anyone resist? However, the tie-dyed giraffe bra allows you to browse thorny trees without hurting your mouth.)

No exercise today.

Sept 30:
30 mins stairmaster
60 mins yoga

Now the big decision: cheetah or giraffe? Seriously, those bras are awesome.

Jessica, Now I'm really motivated to get started with NRLW!

Sept. 30: 35 minutes arc trainer, resistance 8, hill intervals
60 minutes Pilates class
30 minutes arc trainer, same setting

I'm trying to imagine an occasion when lugging a carcass as big as myself up a fig tree might be a desirable skill. I can only imagine this happening at a work-related social event, say an outdoor party, after having killed my manager's manager, as a preventive measure, to avoid anymore long PowerPoint presentations full of new org charts.

You've got the general idea.
