My legs were a bit sore from yoga, so I decided to focus primarily on the arms and core:
med ball slams & twist, about 18 minutes in racquetball court (I was watching a Muscle Up class across the hallway and thinking my workout was much better than theirs!)
power wheel roll outs, 2 x 25
body rows, 3 x 15
elevated push ups, 4 x 15 (2 spiderman,* 2 regular)
hip hinges, 30 x 1 x 15
one legged squats w/DBs, 40 x 2 x 15, each leg
side bends on cable machine, 80 x 2 x 15, each side
Icarian incline lever row, 80 (?) x 2 x 15
kneeling ab crunches on cable machine, 80 x 3 x 15
lying overhead tricep press, 60 x 2 x 10 (hard)
RC: 1 set of external and internal rotators, prone scapular scrunches, scapular wall slides, and 3 position arm extensions.

After this, I munched on a Raw Revolution food bar and banana. Then I headed over to the pool with a Geekity speed workout in hand. But, to my dismay and annoyance, I forgot my suit. I didn't have time to retrieve it, so headed home to do ....
45 minutes on stationary bike while watching MadMen. Even that couldn't eliminate the boredom of this exercise. No idea how Q did 3+ hours.
To get my stretching in for the day, I did the last 35 minutes of the P90X yoga DVD. It was mostly seated stretching and core work.
I was bummed about forgetting my suit. I don't like to go 2 days in a row without swimming. I had a good workout planned that I'll probably do on Friday now.
Got the Speedo Eilte LZR Pro (for my dau) in the mail today. It looks just like the Pro except it has no seams like the Jaked. And, speaking of the Jaked, mine has mysteriously gone missing. If I can't find it, my temper will match my hair.
Anyone done any TRX? http://www.fitnessanywhere.com/. FlyQueen was telling me about it over dinner last week. She said Christine Magnuson is a huge fan. It looks like another clever way of doing bodyweight exercises.
This new flavor looks promising for meets and 2x caffeine. http://store.guenergy.com/Jet_Blackb...blackberry.htm
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAZZY!
