Let’s talk lame duck and workouts, shall we?

So here we are, staying late at the office, all thanks to lame duck. 

I don’t mind, I really don’t, because it is exciting, and stressful, and frustrating, and unpredictable.  I just really enjoy it.  I am sure I would feel very differently if I was one of my legislative coordinators down there at the Capitol, but it can be pretty cool from where I sit.

To deal with all of this stress, I have been very good about my workouts. I had a great strength/lifting session yesterday, a killer metabolic conditioning session today, and am about to initiate my training plan for my first half-marathon next year (Martian Half-Marathon in Dearborn, MI).

So, on we move, with workouts and the unpredictability of lame duck… right now, craziness and soreness is being soothed by a nice beer.

Gotta love it 🙂

 

Down another 2!

So far so good on my goal to drop 2 lbs a week (only 2 weeks in a row, but every victory is just that, a VICTORY!)

I had fun training some friends and Paul last night in a group conditioning type workout. They did an awesome job, and it is just so much fun and such a great feeling sharing what I know and helping people get active and be healthy. Although Paul hates it, he is a great person to practice training on because he really tests my ability to communicate clearly about form and what he should be feeling.

I am convinced that if we ever break up it will be during a workout 🙂 But he worked so hard.

A hardcore lifting session is in order tonight after a 4 mile run, and then headed up north for the weekend!

Have a great Friday!
