A Night In

Well it was a short work week but by no means a short week. Monday I was in St. Maarten trying to fly home, spent another day in paradise on Tuesday but was in Newark, NJ via Charlotte, NC by the end of the day, then bright and early Wednesday morning I was back in San Francisco, CA! So needless to say, after working two days in the office I am ready for the weekend.

I think I am still recovering from my travels so I spent a relaxing evening at home by myself. It is a rare occasion that Dave is out of the house, but he rushed off to Tahoe on Wednesday with some college friends and will be back later today. After my triumphant run yesterday I decided not to push it and went to the gym to spend some time with the elliptical. I normally tire of this machine within 10 minutes, however after I stumbled upon this routine via the fitnessista I find that the time flies.

Elliptical workout #1

Time Crossramp Resistance
0:00-5:00 5 5
5:00-7:00 Slow your pace (not too much) 7 10
7:00-8:00 SPRINT (as fast as you can go with the heavy resistance) 7 10
8:00-9:00 5 5
9:00-10:00 SPRINT (as fast as you can) 5 7
10:00-12:00 (slow your pace) 8 11
12:00-15:00 (increase speed) 5 7
*repeat minutes 5-15 1 more time
25:00-27:00 (slower speed) 7 10
27:00-30:00 (faster speed, bringing heart rate back down 5 5

I jogged the two blocks home from the gym to do some abs in the comfort of my apartment (I look rather like a beached-whale when I attempt to strengthen my core hehe).

Then I settled in for the night testing out “Downton Abbey” and eating far too many peanut butter cheerios šŸ˜‰
