On an exercise front I've done fine. Tuesday I did hill work on the treadmill. I never did get out to find a long hill, so I just stayed home and upped the grade on the treadmill. Wednesday I relaxed (you know...other than going up and down the ladder when painting). Thursday I ran 6.5 miles on the treadmill with negative splits. I love those runs! Friday morning I had an easy 4 mile run. I still have to ask myself when 4 miles got 'easy' because it still doesn't seem right.
Friday night I did something I'd never done before: went to spin class. First thing first, when I got to the gym I had to ask when the last time I was there. Note: if you have to ask then it's been TOO long. For what it's worth, I went on Friday which was 4/16 and the last time I'd been there was 12/17. Second, find a bike. I had called and reserved my spot in the class, but when I got there I found out arriving 15 minutes before class still put me in the front row of bikes. Third, I'd been to an intro to spinning class so I was familiar with how to set up the bike, but I still asked the instructor who was kind enough to help me. Finally, keep up. It went well and I loved having someone else tell me when to go slow, fast, up, down, etc. I was soaked when I was finished. I'll definitely be going back. I snapped this picture before leaving the gym parking lot.
Next week is turn off the TV and unplug week here. I won't be posting or visiting blogs next week. I'll be quickly checking my e-mail in the mornings before the kids get up (I can't completely unplug for 7 days), so if you need to get ahold of me drop me at note at runningonmytimemail at gmail dot com.
I hope that you have a great week!
