Darn Holiday Gym Hours

Tuesday the roommate and I headed to the gym after work only to discover that the new holiday break hours meant that the lap pool is only open from 11am to 3pm. Grrr... That meant no swimming on Tuesday, and we also didn't break regular gym clothes with us. We ended up going to Target to do some Christmas/Graduation gift shopping and also purchased a second set of eight pound weights for our work-outs at home. That evening we did an arms and abs work-out at home. Let me tell you, I really need to work more on my upper body strength. I have been slacking these past few weeks, and I can definitely tell a difference.

Yesterday we had planned to run three miles before spinning, but I got caught up doing some statistics at work and only had time for two miles (in order to fit in a stretch before spin). So yesterday I ended up running two miles at a ten min/mile pace, stretched, then had an amazing work-out in spin class. Man, I love that class!

Today the roommate and I took a super long lunch and swam for an hour at the gym before heading over the chemistry Christmas party. After watching people pass by with plates mostly filled with desserts, we decided to peace out of there and went to Subway for lunch. Swimming was exhausting, but it felt really good. I am still practicing my drills... not up to free-style yet, but I'll get there eventually! I'm feeling pretty good right now!

Unfortunately my knee is quite sore. I'm hoping it will be better before tomorrow's eight mile run. We are running at the roommate's pace, so she's shooting for under two hours. I'll let you know how it goes.

Again, I'm super behind on blog reading... and I have no idea when I'm going to have time to catch up. Just know that I will eventually read and comment. I hope everyone has a great upcoming weekend!!!
