    Glad you are doing good. Like I said, the first month is always the hardest.

    By the way. I did go in at 4 am and work back, before I went to work.

    Ran the "Hottest" 5K last night. Managed a 28:08 run. Guess my time is still decent.

    Nice!
    I skipped that series this year. Too blasted hot, plus I was out of town for the first one and couldn't make another age-group run.

    Oh jeez ... I learned the hard way back when I first started walking that "too sore to exercise today" is a sure sign you need to get up and move or it only gets worse the third day ... AND it's too easy to just give up because you never make any forward movement.

    Yesterday was the first day I have honestly lifted weights since WAY before my surgery (those little 5 pound weights they used at physical therapy don't count).

    I have spent ALL DAY trying to convince myself I NEEDED to go to the gym. I'm glad I did now. Did an hour of cardio -- I really like that bike program that changes the intensity every 60 seconds. It keeps my heart rate up, even on the "easy" minutes but really pushes me out of my comfort zone on the "hard" minutes. I am sweating like a whore on dollar day when I'm done.

    Since my weight workout was all upper body yesterday, I kinda felt like I needed to do SOMETHING to work out the soreness so I figured I'd do a half hour on the row machine. I only made it 15 minutes, but I feel a LOT better.

    Tomorrow may be an off day because we have things to do, but I'm gonna really try to do get there and do a repeat of the upper body workout she had me do Friday. That will give me Monday to do "just cardio" before I see her again on Tuesday and get my ass handed to me.

    Speaking of ass, damn I wish my glutes would stop hurting! Lol
