10mins Warm Up Elliptical
45mins Zumba class

Didn't enjoy the Zumba as much this week as last, but not in a great mood and have a headache, so hoping it's just that.

Wednesday, January 12:

60 minutes elliptical, half backward, resistance at 8, just over 6 miles
30 minutes Pilates session with the trainer, who put me on the Reformer machine.
45 minute spin class

This was more cardio than I wanted to do, but I got shut out of spin class, went on the waitlist not expecting to get a bike, and then got a bike. And my friends in the class were beckoning, excited that I'd gotten a bike. Also, I'd had the Pilates session in between, which is concentrated, sweaty stuff, but was a good rest between cardio bouts.

Usually, I do everything I can to reserve a bike ahead of time. But last night, with the snowstorm looming, I thought that attendance would be sparse after it hit. Wrong. The January crowd was undeterred by the snowstorm, or maybe were really happy to get the heck out of the house & into the gym after being shut in all day.

Thur 13 Jan

5min warm up walk then my first ever 10k run followed by 5min cool down walk on treadmill. Managed it all in 100mins, really pleased to have finally worked up to this point after starting to run only 12 months ago.

Thursday, January 13:

60 minutes arc trainer, intervals, resistance at 9
60 minutes Pilates class

The Pilates instructor remarked on the lack of New Years' resolution people in class, which was small & mostly composed of die-hards.

Either the big snowfalls are keeping them away, or they're price-conscious because of the recession & still paying for Christmas gifts they charged last month. Or the New Years' resolution people may be joining the gym called Blink that the corporation that owns Equinox just opened up less than two miles away -- it's much cheaper than our little boutique gym, even if it doesn't offer classes & there is no towel service.

Friday, January 14:

15:05 rowing on the Concept 2, and the little scrap of paper that I wrote my stats on & the ballpoint that I wrote it with is still lying in the tray thingy on the arc trainer, so it will forever go unrecorded. I think I did 500 meters in 2:30 or so, as I'm still slow.
60 minutes weights
45 minutes arc trainer, hill intervals, resistance at 8

Gym humming with activity again this morning.

Saturday, January 15:

45 minute spin class
60 minute Pilates class

All the coat hooks in the locker room were taken & nearly all the lockers had padlocks on them. I managed to find an empty one to stash my coat & "snowpants" in. (By "snow pants" I mean long windbreaker pants which I wear over my bike shorts while walking to the gym.)

The gym has added additional spin classes on Monday nights & a second class later in the morning on Sundays. It also extended its hours on Sunday night.

I'm taking these signs as good things & indication of financial health. So the New Year's resolution people really are out there after all.

Sunday, January 16:

15:06 rowing on the Concept 2, 2:35 for 500 meters, total of 2,771 meters, projected 5,664, at 41 s/m
60 minutes weights
45 minutes spin class, with a lot of new people, so we did sprints, with everyone adjusting resistance as they would. One older woman wore bright red lipstick to class. (And it stayed on throughout!) She gamely kept peddling through the whole thing, though she didn't try the different moves or mess much with the resistance. She just kept peddling. She said her goal was to make it though the whole 45 minutes, and she did. Good for her. It made me want to take her out for a coffee afterward, or something. This was important: Setting a goal, & achieving it.

By the time I got out of class at nearly 10 AM, the gym was busy. They've added a second, 10 AM Sunday spin class, and a lot of the regulars showed up for that one.

NSV: I wore a sleeveless top today to the gym, with a built-in shelf bra, because all my sports bras are in the laundry (which I really, really need to do). I never wear this top because it makes me self-conscious about my flabby upper arms with their bat wings. Well, those arms are looking much better these days, with just vestigial wings. Because the spin instructor said how good my upper body looks. And I kept looking in the gym mirrors like a 13-year-old boy who's just discovered his arm muscles.
