It's Been a Busy Week

Sorry for not having an update on here in about a week. I've been terribly busy with work and it's affected my free time and my training. Suffice it to say this weekend doesn't look very promising. I've got lots of work to do because I've been put on special projects; however, this is exactly what I asked for so I'm not complaining about that. Personally, day-to-day underwriting sucks. But the research projects are quite fun and I enjoy every minute of it. Too bad I still have to do the day-to-day stuff along side it.

Here's a short run down of what happened this week. The courses stayed the same as previous weeks so there's really no reason for updated maps.

Monday was cross training and to that end I biked and weight lifted a bit. My swimming's been taking a hit but that's the price you pay sometimes.

Tuesday was unique. I did my first yoga course. It was a fitnes yoga course so it required a bit of physical conditioning above and beyond a "standard" yoga course. It was fun and for the first time in a long time...I was sore. It made me really happy to feel that. Any more I have to exercise like mad man just to feel I did something. And here one yoga course did me in. Can't wait for next Tuesday.

Wednesday I did my typical 6 mile run at 4:00 a.m. CST followed by cycle 60. Nothing special there.

Thursday I did a bit of hill work but only made it up the hill 4 times before throwing in the towel. Something felt odd with my stomach and I physically couldn't do any more. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that it was above 90 degrees Farenheit and dry. Who knows. But sometimes you have to sacrafice a workout when the body tells you it's done.

Today is a scheduled day off so there's nothing to report.

That's about it in a nutshell. I've got to head back to work so keep it real.

Hey- Glad you were able to try out the Yoga thing. It got me too as I was very sore after it but it was a good sore and made me want to do more. I have a DVD that I bought at Core Power Yoga that is very challenging and I will make you a copy if you are interested.
