Default Pentagenarians & Beyond: W/B 5/6

Good morning,

Not much going on here. John will be going fishing, so I will stay here and get some stuff checked off the list. Maybe if I am energetic, I'll pull some weeds for a bit. Hate that though. This will have to be after a workout, or I will not do the workout afterwards.

Valerie, have fun in the garden! Maybe I should start STS again, but a full hour workout sounds daunting to me.

Hi to Garance, Joan & Josie,

Take care,

Hi,

I did CArdio Supersets this morning. I like this one a lot except I thought there were more weight sections, (duh, it's called "cardio Supersets" dummy). Hated the Burpees with the disks, but figure I will get them eventually if I keep doing it.

It is a good calorie burner for under 45 minutes.

Hi Deb and any later posters--

I did High Reps this morning (65.5 min.).

Deb, I love Cardio Supersets. It really gets the job done. I did Housemax yesterday and then spent the afternoon writing an abstract for an article, reading part of another thesis, and getting ready for the final classes this week. More reading this afternoon, but it's just so great to think that this is the last week of classes. I also have an appointment to do an ultrasound on my legs. It would be so nice to have fewer unsightly veins.

I have been thinking about doing STS again after the semester is over. Hmmm--maybe together with those two new workouts I pre-ordered from Cathe. She says she is starting filming on May 15, and since it's only 2 workouts, maybe it won't take so long to get them released.

Nice weather here. I should do some weeding, too.

Good morning,

Terrible night, tossing and turning, not sure what was happening. We had decafe coffee at my brother's after dinner, but maybe that was it.

Didn't get into the yard at all yesterday, tried to get a new HRM but Dick's was out of the model I want. By the time I finished what had to be done around here it was time to go to my brother's. We had a very nice dinner, quiet, as only one of my nieces was there so no little kids running around like usual.

Garance, what is the ultra sound for? is this part of the pre-work for the procedure?

I am seriously thinking of skipping class tonight, or maybe taking a half day off and getting a nap in this afternoon...we'll see how I feel at noon...

Take care,

Hi Deb, Josie, Joan, and Valerie--

This morning I did After Burn (54 min.).

Deb, the ultrasound is to identify the veins with the faulty valves, so yes, it is a pre-screening for the procedure. I noticed your question over at the open forum. I would say After Burn is primarily cardio, but there is significant weight work for the shoulders in this one, a little bit of biceps, and pushups in a couple of the rounds for the chest. Slide and Glide is 25 minutes of cardio followed by 25 minutes of fairly light resistance with the firewalker band and some serious abs work at the end. Athletic Training is half and half, too, although the weight training is heavier. Turbo Barre has a section with 5 lb. weights for the upper body, but almost everything else is lower body. A really good abs section on this one, too. No cardio. Low Impact Challenge is a step routine. Hope that helps.

Beautiful here today. Wish I didn't have a class and could do some serious gardening.

Good morning,

I just finished CC#1, 35 minutes. It's raining here (again!)..I guess we needed it, but it makes the day so gloomy. We did end up skipping class last night, I was just too tired and could not imagine staying out until 10:00.

Garance, thanks for the info on the workouts. I guess the true circuit would be one that alternates weights with cardio, and these don't seem to do that, although they have both in the same workout. What is the date of your vein procedure again?

Hi to Valerie, Joan & Josie,

Take care,

Back from a long weekend. we went xc skiing yesterday, a tough workout. lovely sunny day but uphill in heavy spring snow is not easy. by bnow we expect to have spring corn snow whihc is easy to ski on, but not yet. we had to do some fancy maneuvering on the "road" to get uphill as far as we wanted. this is the road we've been cleaning out all winter and we did drive a mile or two further. subarus are great cars for this. very maneuverable. most of the road is decent just a few dicey spots.

did a mt bike the day before... 12 miles rt. again, not as far as we wanted but got to solid snow and that's as far as a bike will go. the day before I did S&G. after the bike ride we did a bunch of garden chores, things are looking nice now. so not being a slouch here. gotta go to yoga so will check back in in a couple hours.

Hi Deb, Josie, Joan, and Valerie--

This morning I did Slide and Glide (52 min.).

Deb, I don't set up the date for the procedure until I get this bilateral venous ultrasound today. Hmmm--I think I would characterize After Burn as a circuit workout, because she does one straight cardio followed by a weighted exercise in each set. For example, she will do side-to-side skates followed by upright row plies with a 15 lb dumbbell, or the final set is a side to side hop with a dixie cup in the center followed by lunges with 5 lb weights in a lateral shoulder raise.

Raining here too and very gloomy.

Valerie, I'm glad you are enjoying the snow, because I cannot think of anything I less want to see at this time of the year.

Hi Ladies,

The graduation was beautiful and very well organized. The day was sunny but cool.
I put sunscreen on my face, but forgot my neck and arms and now I have a funny tan 

The party was great, but the best part was that we got to see the family and friends that we have not seen I a while.

I was exhausted on Sunday and cleaned up and laid around the rest of the day. No workout for me over the weekend. I will be spinning tonight.

I will be back later.

Josie

Linda that is the nice thing about snow in the mountains. we can drive there in 2 hrs, enjoy it, and go home to blooming flowers and grass that needs mowing. sometimes in the winter.... when everywhere is snowy and cold ... it's not as interesting. with the sun on the snow it's just blinding. need very dark glasses, a ton of sunscreen. I wear loose nylon shorts and pants or I'd fry like an egg in a hot pan. we got a heavy load of snow again this year, will be a long time before we're hiking, except for low level stuff.

mentioning movies again... saw The Help, & Descendants, the Rum Diaries. Strongly recommend the first two, not the last one. last one was just a mess, even johnny depp didn't help. It took FOREVER to get The Help thru Netflix and most of the reviewers were complaining about the ridiculously long wait. both were good enough to watch a second time. Never get everything on the first run thru.

Yoga class was tough this morning.... she's got a bunch of regulars showing up who will make the effort and she pushes us. but it's still fun not work.

Deb, FWIW I don't drink even decaf after morning. I'm used to no coffee after that so I don't feel deprived. I had a bad night last night too. sometimes when I work really hard for a long time, like skiing, when I try to sleep at night I'm fidgety and wired up. even benadryl doesn't help much. it can happen after 5-6 hours of exercise. I just get 'wound up". If we have a later dinner and I get revved up with conversation, the same thing can happen. usually benadryl will work.
