Tuesday Morning Sweat Fest!

I got up this morning and felt like The Six Million Dollar Man after the crash and before the bionic implants! Unfortunately, as I struggled to get out of bed, I knew that there wouldn't be any bionic implants for me. Heck, I knew that I wasn't even going to get a kickass orange track suit with little sensor thingies on it!!! (Yes, I admit that when I put my i-pod on my arm band and run on the treadmill, I sometimes pretend that I am Col. Steve Austin) Hey, what can I say . . . I am a product of the '70's and . . . Damn I used to go ape-shit for The Six Million Dollar Man . . . I even had the toy (it was not a Doll . . . damn it!).

Anyway, let's just say that this morning was one of those mornings where it is best not to move around too fast too quickly. In fact, I actually tooks a few moments to test out each of my limbs just to make sure that the were actually functioning proplerly before I tried to nagotiate the shower. It took one of my legs awhile to get use to the idea that it was suppose to hold weight, but it eventually came around about the time that I sneezed and my abs nearly exploded. Eventually, once I was able to get myself sorted, I checked on the weather a realized that the rain hadn't started yet, so I would be able to make it to the gym if I wanted to go. Now, I am not exactly sure what it says about me, but I did really . . . really . . . really want to go! Granted, it did take me a lot longer to get ready get there than it did on Monday, but there was no doubt in my mind that I was going. I wasn't sure what I was going to do when I got there, and the idea of swimming did cross my mind for a fleeting second before it was replace be the thought of drowning! I have been known to swim as part of my workout, but I a pretty sure that today it would have been a very bad idea!  So when I arrived, I decided that I would do some jump rope and some intervals.

 I looked like someone had thrown me into a pool with all of my clothes on when I fininshed this workout.  I am not sure if all of the sweat was due to the two-a-day on Monday or the rope work, but I was one big old sweaty mess when I finished.  Overall, I felt pretty good.
