Spin class was KICKASS today. I really really needed that. I really enjoy Katie's spin classes, she really concentrates on strength and climbing. I told her that it was her classes that allowed me to go so fast at St. A's.

Another long day at work.  Pete and I went to lunch today, got the food picked out for Terri's Celebration of Life next weekend.  I leave tomorrow for my cousin's wedding up in New Jersey.  I really don't much wanna go...I really wanna be here with my friends.

Long day at work and then boot camp with Pete tonight.  Really glad to be home and relaxing...my body is THRASHED.  My brain is fried.  My emotions are all pent up.  I had a few clients tell me today "you're not yourself".  Gee, I frickin' wonder why.

I worked out pretty much all day today.  Any time I had a few minutes I did something to keep myself busy.  Still haven't had the big cry yet.  I feel bad for whoever is around me when it happens.

I'm without words.  There will be a huge hole in my life from now on.

No swim today at St. A's. So they started us Time Trial Style...at the entrance to transition. Had a good bike split today, considering the wind and the fact that (other than today) I've only biked 13 miles this month!! Guess those spin classes are paying off a bit.

I was 110th of 327 on the bike...gee...about top third...odd for me on the bike.

Run
  • 42m 13s
  • 6.20 miles
  • 06m 49s /Mi

Pretty good run. Not the most wonderful conditions but still, my first ever sub-7 average for an Oly run. I'm happy about that.

I was 33rd of 327 on this one. Top ten percent. I guess I could be a little faster here.

Overall, I was 60th of 327 in Age Group, and 345 of 3650 in the race. WOOT!! That puts me at 9.4 percent overall, and 18.6 percent in age group...I'm cool with that since I'm now in 35-39 and I figured I'd be way back in the pack since I haven't really trained.

Bumpy and choppy but I got thru it. Slow, but I wanted to make sure I was riding the waves correctly.

Did a little variety of stuff at Anytime Fitness to try out their equipment. Even swung a kettlebell a few times (just thrilled that they have 'em there!).

Went to spin class tonight, I needed to destress a bit. It definitely helped to be able to sweat out some stress.

Strength
  • 25m

Chest

Incline flyes - 3 sets, 12 reps (25#)

Flat bench press (2x40#) superset with pushups
12 press/24 pushups, 10 press/20 pushups, 8 press/16 pushups

Flat bench press/flat bench press (2x20#/2x40#)
24/12, 10/5, 8/4
Pushups on fitball with one leg up
16, 12

Did some chest work while I was waiting for the spin class to start.

This could very well be Terri's last day.  I'm not exactly sure how to deal with that knowledge.  The weirdest thing is, I haven't "FELT" anything big yet...it's like my emotions are waiting for something before they surface.  I haven't even thought much about all of it.  How weird is that?  I think I've been burying myself in workouts and in being supportive of everyone else, and maybe that's why I'm not freaking out yet? 

I left work early today so I could get over here to be as much support as possible.  The family is here so there is plenty of support for all of us.  I don't really have any more updates than that, but I guess I will keep everyone as informed as I can.  Keep the prayers coming.
