Boot camp on Wednesday was HOT. In order to keep us from passing out, Trainer Josh had us find any shade we could, and then we took off for the Douglas Fir trail. It's all shade, and amazing that you step onto the trail from the pathway and feel the temperature drop a good 10 degrees. I'd day it was much better, but then we began the climb UP. Legs were still tired from marathon/boot camp/boot camp, but I plugged along till I caught up with everyone. Only took me 9 minutes, which Trainer Josh was pleased with. The uber fit duo of C. and J. made it in just under 5!! Hate them...I mean, way to go, you guys! Once at the top, we did some drills, sprints up and down, until Josh figured he had worked us all hard enough. Back to the mats, and a big patch of shade, which we stuck to with a lot of shoulder and triceps work. We even had a band to entertain us!! A group showed up at the picnic area near us, complete with big old double Bass and started "jamming". Groovy, cats!
After picking up the vegetables from our co-op, I dropped off H-woman's share and then went down to Eau Claire to meet up with some very sweaty, hot runners. Enjoyed my usual pint and the Frank's Lime Red Hot Mussels (sans bread for dipping...sad for me) and a tossed green salad. That is becoming my Wednesday usual, and it is quite delicious. Even without the bread...
After puttering around in the morning, I walked down to Weight Watchers (I am on vacay this week, but am really doing nothing all day...guess I needed the rest) and practically did a back flip off the scale! 199.8!! Boo-yah!!! Since Trainer Josh
Speaking of, class #19 involved the staircase at North Glenmore and some interesting drills. Of course, we did have to wait for the group of
Home to dinner of baked salmon with maple syrup (which I didn't notice mine had a layer of something on it till too late - didn't affect the taste at all, but I threw the bottle out...guess you can't trust Walmart brand to be good quality, huh???), on salad greens with goat cheese and balsamic dressing. That's becoming a fave salad of mine. Caught up on some People magazines, watched some mindless TV till way too late and went to bed. On the agenda for today...must.cut.the.grass! And then some tidy work inside the building, and in my suite. figure out what I'm going to do with all the crap in the abandoned suite, and decide if I'm brave enough for tomorrow's hike to Heart Creek. There's supposed to be a lot of spree and I don't like that slippery/slidy feeling when hiking. Makes me nervous. But I do love hiking, and I just bought a cool backpack with big bladder in it (3L) so I don't have to carry a camel back and a bottle and on and on. Okay, okay...I'm going!
One more cup of coffee and then I'm out of here. Seriously...I mean it this time!
