Default Hardcore Fitness Maniacs for Monday Nov 19

Morning Maniacs -

I slept in wayyyyyyyyyy too long. I didn't hear the alarm and the DH had gone to work.....so -- it will be some short workout this morning for me, as I have to go into work again today and have some stuff to accomplish around here. I'll probably try one of my shorter workouts out of my "never done" box.
Be back in a bit.

This morning I did cardio. Dreaded what my HRM would do BUT... - I got rid of all the RF-throwing-piece-of-equipment that I could. No Mp4, no phones, nothing was in the room. I used my CD player and did Cardio Coach #7 and did not have one problem with my HRM. I couldn't believe it. I was very happy about this but bummed because if it's my MP4 player then how the heck can I use it for my workouts??? Anyways, I'll try some other things and see, maybe it was just the speakers I use, who knows?

I did VERY well with this workout. My endurance is building up nicely. With the 4 - 3 min. endurance sprints I did them all at 5.7 mph. This was challenge one. With challenge 2 there are alternating 1 min. hill climbs and sprints with only 30 seconds rest between each interval. I did VERY well with this as well. For the one min. sprints I ran at 6mph and with the hill climbs I took it all the way up to 10 and walked fast at 3.8 mph. So I was very happy with this. It almost all felt so easy. :rocker:

I think her shed and fence is on it.And so be it.If it is she is now going to move it. I am P'd off...If i have to pay someone to survey the rest of the street. Well, pay back here..Why does someone always have to cause trouble..

Well, i am going to try to get on the treadmill tonite. At least for 1/2 hr..I am taking my tubing to work. When i have a slow one i am going to work something here...

My w/o's really suck here lately.. I need 35 hrs in a day..
Well, bath and i am out of here..
Take care all...

Good Morning, I started my workout this morning with 4Day Split HIS cardio only premix no str, then did Amys Step Challenge premix combos 1-3 and added the power ups, I finished with Kelly Coffey's Step/Sculpt cardio and ab premix then did Slo Mo Core. I am going back in a few minutes to do Slo Mo legs. I might do the two set version or a timesaver so I can get in some of the upper. I really want to do Slo Mo and 4 Day Split and have some room to play with Tracey's new ones when they get here. Got to run to Hobby Lobby and out to get a birthday present for our son in law. BBL

Debbie, I hope it's not your mp4 player. Could you put the workouts on a CD and play them through your stereo or dvd player? I hate wearing a headset so I use a stereo in the room. Doesn't seem to bother my wireless hr monitor to my treadmill. when I wear the strap. Good workout.

Nice job Debbie with the running! You have certainly transitioned into a runner for sure. I am very partial to outdoor running because of all the uncontrolled variables (wind, road grade, temperature, etc...) however, the CC workouts provide you with some great muscle confusion between sprints and hills. So good job.

Regarding your Nike HR monitor...I know there are times where you want to hurl that thing out the window and curse me for recommending it. Heart rate monitors are prone to sensitivities (called "artifact") with electronics, turbulence, force, ect... I find that if you put a little dab of water on your chest strap lead and on the underside of the wrist lead, it may help reduce all the artifact.

Keep inspiring us Buddy!

X - Good to see you in here! You should check in with us! Thanks on my running, I am very proud of myself because I have always been one to think I cannot run. I have proved myself wrong.

As for my HRM, I am now using my old Polar. My Imara doesn't work at all anymore, it doesn't even register my HR. I put new battaries in it but it looks like it got wet inside with my sweat and burned up the components inside. I started using my Polar and have had a lot of problems with it. I do wet it each time I use it. I'm hoping it's just interferance with the electrical stuff I use but I'm bummed that I may not be able to use my MP4 player anymore. Time will tell. It worked perfectly this morning.

Diane Sue - That's what I did this morning, I used my portable CD player. All I know is it's very strange that it hasn't worked at all and now that I used my CD player it was dead on the entire workout. Stumps me, that's for sure. Nice workout, D!

Good morning!

This morning I did CC#7 (like Debbie). I just love this workout. I love the music. Especially in the warmup and in challenge 1.

Debbie - My HR monitor wasn't working the past few times and I always forget that when it doesn't work, DH tells me it's time to wash it (the sensors) with soap and water. That usually does the trick unless it's a battery problem. Just a thought. I'm sure you already do this, but I always forget.

Got a couple of meetings this morning. I hope you all have a great day!

I'm back. I ended up doing Elle -Glam Fitness - Total Body Toning . Workout was 53" and I burned 280 calories. Surprisingly, this wasn't a bad workout. I would have liked to do something longer and burn a few more calories....but cuz I overslept... that wasn't an option.

I better run....have to get ready and I'm not moving very quiickly.

Hey Charlotte,

Had a minute so I thought I'd check out the forum. Congrats on the job! Sounds like you'll love it!
That's always a nice thing when we have to work!:)

Don't know what I'm doing tonight for cardio, probably kickboxing, I feel so good after a good kickbox workout! The stepping is starting to bother my left knee, so gonna lay off of those for a little while.

Hi to everyone! Hope you all have great workouts and a great week!
