Sunday, March 20, 2011      0 comments

Today is the first day of Week 2 of the Lean Program of P90X. This week will be a repeat of last week, but hopefully with better form on the moves, more control. Today felt a LOT tougher than the first time I did this Core Synergistics... Read more
P90X Day 7: X Stretch!
Saturday, March 19, 2011      0 comments

So. Stretching. You'd think that'd be easy-peasy? Right. Sure. And in a way, it actually was. But you have to remember that we are talking 60 minutes of stretching. That kinda ups the challenge. And we weren't just... Read more
P90X Day 6: Kenpo X
Friday, March 18, 2011      1 comments

Now THAT was a fun workout. Lots of punching and kicking. One of those workouts that you *could* sleepwalk your way through, but it's way more fun to get all hot and sweaty putting your weight and speed into the punches and the kicks. Oodle... Read more

Yep. That's me. After yesterday's soul-wrestling because I slept in for a half-hour and wasn't sure I had 95 minutes available to do Yoga X, I guess my brain simply wasn't ready to take the chance of sleeping in again. I woke up once... Read more
P90X Day 4: Yoga X
Wednesday, March 16, 2011      4 comments

Today, I *really* overslept, waking at 5 instead of my normal 4:30-ish. Which would have been okay, except for the minor detail that the Yoga X scheduled for today was a 95 minute workout. I debated swapping in a different workout, maybe t... Read more

Tuesday, March 15, 2011      1 comments

Whoooooie!! That was a tough workout, all right. 60 minutes of intense shoulders, biceps and triceps work, followed by 16 crazy minutes of ab work. The strength training was fine - I will be a little sore tomorrow, but the actual... Read more

Moving beyond ice skating
Sunday, March 13, 2011      5 comments

So. March 13 is tomorrow. That means today is the last day the rink will be open. Honestly, though, I've been out there a couple of times this week, and the warm weather (by Toronto standards) means the ice is weird, kinda soggy. Not r... Read more

Skating season is almost over. But that just means time to do the OTHER activities I enjoy. Time to break in a pair of roller blades. Time to go dancing. Time to walk EVERYWHERE because the weather is so wonderful! Time to si... Read more

That is all I have left. Twelve little skating days. The rink closes on March 13th. Yes, I know there are more than 12 days between now and the 13th. I also know there are only 12 work days between now and the 13th. Why... Read more

There was a week, a couple of weeks ago, when the temperatures were REALLY cold. -15 to -25 Celsius. Cold is okay, but it was also windy. So I spent more than a week NOT skating. And this week, I started skating again. Interestin... Read more

Yesterday was the 40th birthday party for a friend of mine. We grew up together, have known each other all our lives, have actually kept in touch most of our adult lives, and have lived on the same continent for all but 1 year of our lives. Yes,... Read more

Did you ever hear that sound when you dropped something? Better yet, did you hear it when YOU fell HARD off a wagon? Well, yesterday, there was a THUD that I heard that pretty much rang in my ears all day. :D The day started out o... Read more
