Spartan race this Saturday. So ran intervals and lifted alternating all at 7000 feet to acclimate for race. Ready to go

100 burpees in 9:15 also. Not bad for at altitude

Yes. But I don't like sour cream on tacos. I prefer a plain, hard shell taco with the meat filling, lettuce, shredded cheese and a little mild salsa. If available, maybe I'll add a few tiny pieces of green pepper. That's it.

The Fage yogurt I brought in has 100 calories, 18 grams of protein (36% DV), and 20% calcium DV; there's only 7 grams of sugar. That's not bad for yogurt. I can't say much for the taste, but I'll get over it. I'm eating it for the protein value. The more protein I can build into my diet the better.

I think....... I am starting to feel better from these nasty ache making medications ...... 2 x 1 hour dance sessions with dh, 1 x 2 hour session with social friends, and another 3/4 hour with dh - all in the space of a week! Oh, and a walk at vastly increased tempo every day:)
Good to hear that you're getting better! :cool:
 
Another fun day at the obstacle course gym. Rope climb. Z wall ,Olympus wall monkey bars , and rings



Oh and tyrolean traverse. Crawling along a horizontal rope upside down 6 feet in the air. When you say it like that it seems nuts :beye::confused::eek::D

Race day is Saturday. If I'm not on here Sunday.... I'm sleeping in:)

Have you thought about trying out for American Ninja Warrior? :p:D:eek:
 
Whew. That Spartan race today kicked my booty. Fort carson Colorado at 6200 feet. 8.4 miles with 1600 plus feet of climb. 27 obstacles. Had to do burpees on 4. It was hard but awesome. Tonite it's a big steak !!! Time around three hours. We will see how that stacks up for my age

Decision to make... Next week, at work, our group is moving to another building. There are advantages and disadvantages, but one disadvantage is that the gym that is located in the complex where we are now will no longer be as convenient; I'll have to drive over there if I want to use it, instead of just walking downstairs. My membership is up in August. There's a Y on my way home where I could get a membership, and if I got a membership there, I might be able to get DW to start going there. But I do like the lunchtime classes at my current gym, and it has access to a nice running trail, which the Y doesn't have.

Is it possible to have both memberships? Is the work one subsidized at all?

still teaching at least 5 classes a week in my home and definitely doing better on food choices but it still isn't enough exertion to really get to where I want and yet I am sore enough that I couldn't really do more...le sigh

Interesting. I thought current research is indicating that while exercise is important and valuable for overall health and disease prevention, diet is substantially more important for weight management. Something like 80-20.

Of course if you're a dedicated long distance runner, it probably doesn't matter a lick what you eat.

Now I'm curious- have to go dig through some Medscape / Medline and see which way the wind is blowing. ;)

Slept in this morning (worth it!), so no gym for me today... just practice, where there will be at least a couple of rounds, because comp is soon. Can you call it a lazy day if you are still planning multiple hours of physical activity?
