Working It Out On Sunday

Sunday was a workout in our condo clubhouse. I am not a fan of the clubhouse. The remodeled it earlier in the year and I figured it would be nicer, and in a way, it is. But the treadmills and bikes are all old crap. Anyways, before I get into another rant of how much I hate something, I'll just get to my workout.

The BF worked out on the recumbent bike for about 20 minutes then did some weights and then went back to the bike for 10-15 more minutes. I did a mile on the treadmill.Speed was 5.0 with a 3.0 incline.

I then did the some free weights. I worked my arms so much that my arm muscles are toast a half hour later. They are very shaky.

I got back onto the treadmill and did 2 more miles messing with the incline and speed. From 3.0-5.0 incline and speed from 5.0-7.0.

I listened to my ipod the whole time as the lady on the treadmill next to me was watching a PBS sewing program, but thankfully decided to turn it to River Monsters. The BF appreciated her for that.

One of my new favorite songs to listen to while working out is Drowning Pool with Rob Zombie - The Man Without Fear.

During this song is where I kicked up the treadmill to 7.0 for a quarter mile.

I made sure to spend quite a bit of time after stretching and cooling down while drinking a purple powerade zero.Of course I am dehydrated a bit as I had 2 Saturday night G&T's and will be having some wine with dinner tonight at the BF's moms house. 

What is one of your fav songs to listen to? I repeated the song above, which I love, along with Babes In Toyland's Real Eyes for most of my last mile today.

What's on the dinner menu for tonight? We are having Chili. Yum.

  1. I think you are awesome b/c you too listen to Rob Zombie while running!! There's just something about the "Living dead girl" song!! Anyways, I'm a blogger from Pullman, WA and wondered if you were planning on doing any of the races in Spokane, WA in 2012? I realize that's a big drive for you, but closer than Seattle... :)
