I wish but that's a whole other story.
This morning was strength training. I managed to get up just a little earlier but I had done nothing last night to get ready for this morning. So I was still running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I'm hoping that by next week I can get it all together.
Anyway, strength training. Now generally I work out at home with free weights, but since my room is loaded with boxes I'm heading to the Y every morning. I went Tuesday and did the machines for the first time in years - very different from free weights. I decided to start slow this week, high reps, low weight, long rests. Yesterday I was just a tiny bit sore, nothing serious. This morning I was still a little sore and debating on sticking with my plan. I ultimately did and am actually feeling pretty darn good I love strength training because I love feeling my muscles - LOVE IT!!!! So both Tuesday and today I did full body weights. That's all the strength training I'm going to do this week. I figure that will be fine. When I can get back to 3 times per week I'll work up a rotation for upper and lower body.
Also, because I got up a little earlier, I was able to get 15 minutes of hill work on the treadmill. I know, I live in Hawaii, I should be running outside, but the treadmill was right there and it was empty and it was easy and I just couldn't resist......... I will do my long runs outside from now on!!!
That's it. I've got tons of work to do plus a room full of glassware to wash - oh, the glamorous life of a chemist :) Have a great day!!!!

Wow, you are on a roll with your training! Good job!
I love strength training, too! It's funny how easy it is to forget it though, in the general rush and craziness of life.
I especially like the way weights give us gals sexy arms-- very important for folks like me and you who live in warm climates! :)
