Two Hours at the Gym

I went to the gym and worked my butt off. First there was my flex class at 8:15 AM. One solid hour of a very high-energy workout. Maximum calorie burn and a full body workout. My instructor really pushed the class this morning. After the hour of flex I then did an hour of spin class. I hope I will be able to move tomorrow morning.

I would have loved to have gone on an afternoon ride but the weather was not cooperating. Raining and windy all day long.

Busy Week

I went to the gym on Tuesday and Thursday and did the 5:30 AM spin classes. Today Joe and I went mountain biking. We had fun. The trails were covered with fallen leaves making the ride pretty interesting. Tomorrow my daughter and I are going to the 8:30 AM flex class at the gym. I may do the 9:30 spin class immediately after the flex class or go home and do a road ride with Joe. It all depends on tomorrow's forecast.

Gloomy Rainy November First

Our weather today was the typical rainy, gloomy, windy pacific northwest pattern. So Joe and I went mountain biking. I doubt I will be doing any road riding in the next 3-4 months. We left the house and drove to Lake Sawyer around noon and rode on some of our favorite muddy, twisty, technical trails in the rain for 2 1/2 hours. We forgot to put our fenders on our mountain bikes so we got extra muddy on our ride but that's okay that's all part of mountain biking. The important thing is we got out and rode and we had fun. We forgot how hard mountain biking can be. By the time we finished and got back to the truck at the trailhead we were exhausted. We got home, Joe cleaned the bikes, I unloaded the truck and started washing our muddy bike clothes. We both showered and then had dinner. Then we both collapsed and chilled out (slept) in the family room in front of the TV.

Rain is called for all weekend long. Tomorrow Joe and I will go to the gym. There is a 9:30 AM spin class on Sundays and we decided to join our daughter and go to it.

It will be the gym all week long after work. Maybe next weekend the sun will make an appearance. If it's sunny we will ride our road bikes. If it's raining we will be on our mountain bikes again.
