What exercise looks like

Warning: The picture below isn't pretty. You've been warned.

Happy Saturday! The weather here in NorCal is still very unstable with steady rain falling today. I stayed up late last night (10:00 is my version of late) and managed to stay in bed until about 7:00. No 4:00 a.m. workout on a Saturday. I did have high hopes that I would spend a good amount of time at the gym this morning and I am happy to report that I was successful. The gym was a bit more crowded than I had hoped (8:00 on a Saturday is prime time) and for some reason, ESPN has been replaced by a local sports channel that plays endless infomercials on the weekends but I started watching a movie thru my Netflix app and made it through the final part of my workout.

Treadmill: Run/Walk intervals for 60 minutes: 2 minutes running at 5.2 up to 6.3 speed. I realized quickly that 5.2 was just too slow for me which has never been the case and a majority of the time I was running at 5.5 and above, 2 minutes walking at 3.5 speed and 5% incline.

Elliptical: 30 minutes

Drive home for 6 minutes and decide I haven't done enough yet and turn on the 30 Day Shred and complete Day 3. And here is what I looked like after nearly 2 hours of working out.

Yes, that is sweat.

I could have used a long nap but duties called so I went grocery shopping and didn't really sit down until 1:00 when I promptly fell asleep on the couch for about an hour. It was dreamy. I am helping my sister photograph a local event tomorrow starting at 6 a.m. so as of right now, my plan is to get up at 4:30 (on a Sunday) and do the 30DS to get it out of the way. I'll let you know how that goes.....
